Had a baby and back to lose approx 6 stone!!

#1
Hello, I'm Yvonne I had a baby nearly 10 weeks ago. I'm approx 17 stone 4 and 5ft 7. (242lb) so as I've done slimming world before know my first goal will be 24lb which is 10% of my body weight
That will do! As I reach 40 at the end of March 24lb loss would take me to 218lb (15st 8) I can look OK on my 40th like that.....

I havnt been to class yet but know about 11.6 is ideal for me and have worked out at an average of 2lb a week means I'm gonna need your support for 42 weeks that will take me to 27th October my Sons first birthday a double celebration!!!

Look forward to getting to know you, i know I'm human so will have blips along the way but look forward to embracing my bumpy ride.

Best wishes Yvonne :)

Hi we're very similar except I had my baby 18 months ago but will be 40 this year too! and I am currently 17-4 and 5ft 7 too!
Lots of luck Yvonne, we've got the best reasons in the world to succeed... our little babies xxxx
I agree Rowan x 2, I have an 8 year old too and can't do the activities I would like with her, it's gonna be different from now on!!

I'd love to be reaching target weight with you in October... let's do it!!!!
Next year you'll be doing anything your kids want you do do... rollerskating? lol ... I think about things like this and also bike riding, I don't want to be the mam sitting on the park bench while my daughter has to do these things on her own. And not beingnable to teach her to ride a bike cos I cant run alongside... it's all changeable though. :)

Thank you mini. Been on and done it. Says cut and paste but using iPad so don't think I can do that. Will go on laptop later and use it or can you go right on from here?
Thanks again :)

It is achievable ! My Daughter asked me to go out on her sledge last week and I said no 4 times (as you do get lazy) then felt guilt ridden so took her out but went to the smallest hill. Next year it will be a big hill I promise... Not sure about the roller skating though hehe, wouldn't be a goose sight now though.

Here's to October Rowan

Hi Yvonne,

I have just joined this forum too and had my baby boy 5 weeks ago.. I put on 5 stone during my pregnancy so now am on a mission to loose it. I've done slimming world before and lost 5 stone in 2008 so i'm sure i can do it again !

Hi Emma
Congratulations! I didnt put too much on during my pregnancy only1 & 3/4 stone which I've lost but to b honest was 17 1/2 stone before becoming pregnant and the weight did make it tough so I really need to get it off

Good luck, let me know how u get on
