So after a small 'non-scale' victory today I thought I really should start a diary of my own. A little about me. I'm Kat and I'm here to shift my post baby weight. Sounds honourable doesn't it? Not just as good when I tell you my babies are 4 and 2!! Sleep deprivation has a lot to answer for, always leads me to the biscuit tin! Before I had my first baby I hovered around 9-9.5 stones. After having her I hovered around 10-10.5 stones. After my second I got up to 11 stones 11 lbs and stuck So after an uncomfortable summer last year, I decided to get on with doing something about it. So in September I ordered 4 weeks of s&s (after lurking on here and seeing that it worked) and gave myself the kick start I needed. It was great, take food out of the equation and let the diet do it's magic. I lost 1 stone 3 lbs in that 4 weeks and thought it was a fab start. I then followed the 5:2 diet and got down to 9 st 12 lbs by Christmas. Then Christmas happened, then complacency......then weight gain.... So I'm back to s&s to get to goal this time. I started at 10 st 13 lbs. I'm just about to complete week 3. I lost 8lbs the first week I'm trying not to weigh until the end of the month as I can obsess a little and any sticking or fluctuations might tip me off track. I'm feeling great so far, just starting to branch out with veg and lifestyle days. Long may it continue. Oh and my victory today - I'm back into my rather small, non stretch size 12 jeans :woohoo: No muffin top in sight!
