Hello I am new.

I have done Slimming World before, last year. Managed to get to a normal weight range, just, before I had the shock of finding myself pregnant with my 4th. Anyway our daughter was born nearly 6 weeks ago and I suspect I have actually gained weight since she was born but know I am about 2 stone over the weight I was which is pretty gutting. Anyway, I need to get back on plan and try to shift the weight. It will probably be a week on Monday as I have a lack of food in the house and will do my big shop next weekend. I am breastfeeding exclusively so will have a read of the breastfeeding thread as I believe I get extra healthy extras.

Any tips? It seems a lifetime ago that I followed the plan but I can't afford to go back to group or do it online so am going to use my pack and just do my best!

Good for you, I'm starting again non my own after quitting group last year, I really wouldn't worry, it seems to have come back to me with little effort. Congrats on the new bub, I hope to get pregnant soon, been trying for 2 months now
Iv found that using quark to make pasta sauces is helping, as I really love cheesy things, and it seems to give me the same feeling. I believe you get an extra healthy exta A when pregnant or breastfeeding
Good luck x


Is a crunchy mama!

Congratulations on the birth of your little girl!! I gained weight after I had my daughter too. If you're exclusively breastfeeding you get an extra 3 HEs in addition to your usual HEs so that's a total of 5 HEs on EE days and 7 on red/green days! When your baby is 2 months and is feeding more efficiently you get even MORE healthy extras, believe it or not lol. You get an extra 4 so 6 on EE and 8 on red/green!! I've lost 2st in 4 months and I ate every single one of my extra HEs!! Seems like a lot but you really need it as you'll be feeding a very hungry bubba :D Come over to the breastfeeding thread, lots of info and support there!

Congrats on the birth of your daughter! I started SW last week, am doing it at home too as I can't afford to go to the classes and my OH works shifts which doesn't help even if I could afford to go!

I had my second baby 5 months ago, and I lost weight whilst pregnant with her, but have put weight on since, so a similar reason to you why I'm doing SW!

I've found planning is my best tool really, as I am on a tight budget, and that way I know what to buy and what I'm eating, which tends to stop me from picking on naughty food, I've lost 4 pounds this first week.

Good luck!
Thank you for the congratulations and warm welcome! I have been lurking here a while as it is one of the sites google throws up when I am hunting for sw info. I need to sit down and meal plan so I can make sure I am ready to start next week. I am dreading stepping on the scales though. Baby has fed like a demon today and I feel so drained, hopefully getting back on plan and making sure I eat sensibly will help me to feel better.
