    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 :)

    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 !
