Losing weight after having a baby. x

#1
Hello, My son was born January this year, he is 6 months old now, I can't believe it has already been half a year since he was born!

I had 2 rounds of ivf for him after trying to conceive for 10 years & then losing both of my Fallopian tubes, a natural conception being impossible, ivf was my only hope!

So my gorgeous little boy is the result of my second ivf cycle :)

Anyway back to why I'm starting this diet..

I have for the past few years hovered between 13 & 13 & a half stone, apart from when we were having ivf & I got to 12 & a half stone as the drs wanted my BMI down as it improves the chance of success, but with all the fertility drugs I gained maybe half a stone bringing me into the 13's again.

During my pregnancy believe it or not I didn't gain any proper weight which I'm so pleased about, the minute my son was born at just over 8lb I went back to the 13 stone bracket so it was all literally baby weight I was carrying.

I joined a meeting 4 weeks ago & started at 13 stone 9lb & 4 weeks on I'm 8lb lighter at 13st 1lb,

*week 1* 4.5lb loss
*week 2* 1lb loss
*week 3* 2lb loss
*week 4* 0.5lb loss

Which brings me to now...

Thought i would start a diary to help me stay motivated.

Feel free to follow & if you have a diary I will follow back. x

I'm having a good week which I'm happy about :)

I took my son to the carnival today with my husband.. & my husband had loads of crap to eat & I had nothing!

I came home got my son ready & up to bed & then I sat & had my tea, no snacking at all today!

I'm really staying focused this time, I've never stayed at a meeting long enough to even get a silver 7 but I have this time,

Looking forwards to weigh in on Wednesday. x

I'm off to town this morning shopping & my husband has decided it will be a good idea to go for a wetherspoons breakfast... Grrr he's not on the diet though!

I'm going to have bacon, egg, toast, beans & a hash brown. Will be back on later to update the days food. x

Yesterday I had a small cooked breakfast, dinner I had banana & activia yoghurt & for tea I had a jacket potato, tuna & salad, before bed a I had a caramel cake bar as I was hungry so used all my dailies & 2 weeklies in total,

Today has been

Breakfast - banana & activia creamy (3pp)

Dinner - warburtons white pitta, sandwich turkey, coleslaw & grated cheese, salad cream, & bag of quavers & chocolate jam teacake (19pp)

was a bit gutted that I used that many for dinner as it wasn't the most filling meal, but hey ho I will know for future!

Tea - weight watchers Mexican chilli with wedges meal & veg (6pp)

Snack - another chocolate jam teacake (so small & not really worth the points) (2pp)

Used all 28 dailies & 2 more weeklies. x

I didn't enter diary yesterday as it was late by the time I remembered but I stayed on track, but ended having 9 weeklies as I was hungry, that's what they are there for though!

Weighed at meeting today & lost 2.5lb so 10.5lb off in 5 weeks :)

Lost 5% of my body weight now & got into the 12's this week!

Next goal is to get to the stone off, so 3.5lb to go. x

I STS this week, I'm not really sure why as I wasn't even bad to be honest, I did lots of walking over last weekend so I was a bit miffed actually, but I know it happens for what ever reasons so I'm not beating myself about it, I walked home in a bad mood though lol was over it by dinner time. x

Today's food -

Breakfast 3 pieces warbutons orange fruit bread & butter (8pp)

Dinner - quavers (2pp)

Tea - weight watchers hot pot, 2 pieces brown bread with light philadelphia (13pp)

Snacks - 3 caramel snack a jacks (4pp)

Total - 27/28pp
