    Hi everyone

    I'm Bryony, I had my little girl in December and since then have piled on the pounds. I've decided to calorie count as I can easily fit in around being a stay at home mum - no meetings to attend, set times to eat or hard meals to plan :)

    Any tips would be greatly recieved!

    Hi Bryony, Welcome to the forum.
    Good to see that you are going to get into losing some weight.
    Firstly may I suggest that you start your own diary. It doesn't matter if you don't fill it in every day, in fact just whenever it suits you. Also you don't have to put down all your menus either and it is helpful to put in how you are feeling and coping so that we can give you support and encouragement when needed.
    You may find the following link helpful in finding calories for different foods-

    Search the Nutrition Database | iChange

    and there is a little book that I find invaluable called The Collins gem Carb Counter. It is pocket sized, can be bought online, costs literally only a few pence and give calorie counts for numerous foods and things like McD etc.
    Hope you have great success ... take care...:)
