Jane fab!!

Just what I need!!

Weighed myself at MIL and although I'm too ashamed to put the number iv lost 26lb since giving birth - in 16 days so I'm over the moon!

Obviously iv not been eating properly so that should and will slow down!

I will aim for 6lbs this month

If I reach that I will be made up! Anything more I will be ecstatic!

My motivation will be or hubby to notice a difference in my by the time he gets back in 6 weeks - and to feel more comfortable in a swimming costume for first time we take Alyssia swimming :)

xxxxx

Kirsty - 1lb is great going hun! you had chippy and 2 muffins after all ((hugs)) don't beat yourself up now hun, stay with it!

Angie - I need it ! but am now wondering if I'm wise with my total given BF. lol We'll see.. if I don't make it I won't be too harsh on myself. I'd be happy with 1lb a week.

now is chippy chinese as i've heard some people say or fish and chips? :D because when i go to the chippy it's for fish and chips. i'd never known people referred to the chinese in that way until last week :S confusion!! ha.

regardless, 1lb is a lb babes. it's a good amount to lose!! it's much better than it going on and better than sts. so don't beat yourself up :)

lol a chippy is a chippy as in fish n' chips or savaloy and chips as my childhood favourite! lol i don't eat fish or meat now so it's veggie burger and chips or curry sauce n' chips! lol ok.. enough talk of chips!! lol

Am half a lb up on my last weigh in .. hardly surprising as it's been St Davids day and I ate all the things I shouldn't! Oops! so.. for now I'm getting back on track. catrin has hit a growth spurt so that'll help get rid of some calories I expect! :p

i am 5 pounds up from initial post natal weight so i would be thrilled with a lb a week loss. was thinking of going to sw today, but Katia had a very troubled night, crying out in her sleep and waking several times between 1 and 5, so we had a lie in. she is currently strapped to me in a moby wrap, am hoping walking round with her will burn off the pounds!

Angie I've been baby wearing Catrin to get her to doze in the day as she is resistant of sleeping in the daytime. She is sleeping well at night but is up every night anywhere from every 90 minutes (night before last) to every 3-4 hours. lol We don't see many gaps of 3-4 hours so when we do they're lovely! lol Do you ignore / settle Kezia when she wakes at night? I always feed Catrin but she's still small so have to keep the feeds up.

Lisa - I'm sure you'll see another great loss soon and the inches likely 'went' when you lost 1lb. I saw a poem once about 'only a pound' it was really funny all about not underestimating the effect of a lb loss.

Have been better today so hoping to be back down to 212 or below would be nice! lol I was bad on St Davids day and paid for it. lol
