Losing the baby weight for my wedding

I'm Kirsty, 30 and mum to 8 month old Zac. I am getting married in 2020 and need to lose the baby weight.

A little about me.

I fell pregnant in 2015 and lost a baby due to an ectopic pregnancy, which resulted in emergency surgery leaving me unable to exercise for weeks due to infection and from then on my fiance and I comfort ate before falling pregnant again and having my rainbow baby in April 2017. Since having my son he has colic, reflux and a cows milk allergy so he has been hard work we not had a chance to get on it properly. However we have decided today to start healthy eating I am going back to slimming world which worked for me before with the old Red green and extra easy days.

Not sure how it works exactly now but I'm going to do it the way I did before unless someone can explain. I can't go to a class as my son never gives us a second and is often really sore at night taking up alot of our time so doing it from home.

I weighed myself and I'm the heaviest iv ever been 14stone 3lbs and I want to get to around 11.

Any help or support appreciated.

Today iv had

Breakfast - 2 egg omelette with red onion and cherry tomatoes

Lunch - vegetable soup with carrot, Celery, leek, spinach and kale then fat free yoghurt with blueberries, raspberries and pear.

Snack - apple

Dinner will be slimming world chilli with extra lean mince, onion, courgette, kale, baked beans, peppers and Celery with brown rice and salad with coleslaw made of cabbage, onion and carrot 0.5syns

I'll have my hex a and b tonight with some toast before bed and a bit of fruit tonight.

Syns - 0.5

Does this sound OK?

Welcome back Kirsty and congratulations on your son and your engagement.

It can be tough going with a baby, especially when they have colic...Went through it myself with my son many moons ago...you will come out the other side and things will get easier.(((Hugs)))

If you are doing it from home and the old red and green plan worked for you it is best to stick with what you know for now and if you need any help with Syns please ask.

Extra Easy SP is similar to the old red plan.

Link below has SW FAQ on it...

Your food for today looks good.

Good luck with SW and please ask if you need anything as We are all here to support one another...good to have you with us Kirsty.:)
Thanks so much I'll take a read over shortly and that's an idea about going to get the books thank you.

I tended to do mainly extra easy and I also kept syn and used around 70 over mainly weekend that way I had a Treat still and if I need them each day I had a few.

It's all about knowing what works best for you and then sticking with it.

I started again a couple of days after Christmas and I had 6lbs off last week and for me with my history that was amazing!
