    I'm 28 years old, married with a 2 year old and a 8 month old baby. Since having my little girl 8 months ago I decided enough was enough and I had to shift the fat once and for all.

    I was 19 stone 2lb now currently 15 stone thanks to VLCD. I have maintained for 2 month now but need to knuckle down again but don't have the will power to stick to no food VLCD so I'm on the calorie counting and hardwork wagon now.

    I will be starting tomorrow look forward to getting to know you all x

    Thanks.

    This is going to sound really lame but I'm working full time and with the 2 little ones find it hard to get out to a gym but have kettle bells, hoola hoop, 30 day shred and a rowing machine.

    Hi, I was in S&S with you but have recently moved over to here too. Took my body a couple of weeks to adjust to eating normally and doing exercise but am now losing again as still have a couple more stone to get off. Good luck xx

    I thought I recognised your name from somewhere. I've been messing around since Christmas so decided to change strategy and see how I get on.

    How are things with you x x

    Really good now thank you. I started a kickboxing class and go twice a week, really good for weight loss and fitness. I'm having around 1200cals a day and having wine at the weekends so it's good being able to enjoy myself again. What's your plan now then? xx

    Plan now is healthy eating 1200 calories and exercise - kettle bells, hoola hoop, rowing.

    I'm hoping this will result in 1-2lb loss a week.

    I have 3 and a half stone to loose and hopefully will be gine this year.
