    Hiya i'm new. Lil bit about me:Im Niki, im 21 married living in Germany with my husband (British Army) Have a 10 week old baby girl.

    Stats: 5'8...202lbs
    Want to get down to around 150lbs then go from there.

    Decided this year is the year i do something about myself. Always been around a size 14/16, went to an 18 in pregnancy. Ive never been happy with my figure, but never decided to do anything about it really.

    I started doing SW on the 10th Jan as part as a sponsored slim for help for heroes which me and a few other Army wives are doing. But i just cant get my head around it lol have lost 8lbs but its just not for me.

    So decided to do the traditional. Eat well and exercise plenty. I find it quite difficult being in Germany and not understanding the language but we do have naafi on camp. I mainly struggle with diets as i start not eating enough :rolleyes: I really want to do this. Going to do my weigh ins on Monday. And try to remember writing my food diary on here :)

    Congratulations on the weight you've lost so far and good luck with the healthy eating! I could never really get into sw or ww to be honest as soon as I'm told I can't eat something i do it anyway (I'm a rebel lol) so healthy eating works for me so far...
    Good luck :) x :)

    Yeah Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, am starting this morning, it's meant to be hard but see results so I'm all for that lol! I weigh in on a Saturday usually but I'm not weighing myself for the next 30 days-am joining Rosemary Conley online today and starting shred coz my weight loss seems to have stopped (1lb in 10 days? And walking 2 hours most days) and going to find you how many calories I should be eating :)
    If you want to see how I'm going my diary is on healthy eating forum - hi everyone x

    Ps - good luck with the weigh in x

    I've had a crap week :( Just lost all motivation and doesnt help its the horrid totm. So tomorrow im going 'back to basics' Plan to have egg on toast for breakfast each morning, salad and fruit for lunch and a balanced meal in the evening.

    Really NEED to do this. Hubby had a mess meeting lastnight and they've said we're having a summer ball this year, not fancy dress an actual ball. Would be my first one so want to lose weight and look gorgeous in a pretty dress.

    Wish me luck, i need it ;)

    Hi :)

    Don't be too hard on yourself, you're still half a stone lighter than you were when you started :D

    Just put the bad days behind you now, today is a new day. Start afresh, remember the summer ball ;) and tell yourself "I CAN DO THIS" :D

    Good luck :) xx
