My SW weight loss journey all begins here!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Samantha, Im 27 and mum of 2, James is 6 and Abbie is 2, Im married to my lovely husband Brian and August will be our 1st wedding anniversary :D

Before i had kids i was a size 8/10, When i was pregnant with James i had the most awful morning sickness (Why do they call it morning sickness when its morning, noon and night?!) I couldnt keep much down except Milk so i drank oodles of the stuff full fat too lol I craved it all day long and would drink 4 pints if not more a day!!!

James was born weighing 9lb 8oz and i was left a size 16, I did try to lose weight after i had him but eventually gave up as that was the easy way out,

Abbie was born in 2007 weighing 7lb 13 oz and i was 15st 7.5lbs, I dont actually know what size i really was as i squeezed into size 18's but i was probably more of a 20,

I managed to lose 4st for our wedding last year but since then ive struggled and havent been motivated, I had a mc in Dec at 9 weeks and ive been really quite down since then, The baby wouldve been due on the 1st of July just gone and i feel as though i can move on a little....

I want to lose the weight so i can feel more like the "old" me, so i can go clothes shopping without getting depressed! and most importantly so i can be fit and healthy for my kids, I want to always be there for them if they need me plus I want to see my grand children grow up (ok so thats a loooong way off but you get what i mean lol)
