On a journey of Transformation


Full Member
Hey ladies ( and gents if they read) i wanted to start a diary to try and get myself back on track, movitated and for general support. Im a lurker in so many diary and have found lots of inspiration and ideas through them.

The main reason for the diary and the title is that im 18 weeks pregnant and having previously been so close to target im struggling with the weight gain, the cravings and the general bad eating.

I have promised myself from now on ill try and eat healthier to prove to myself that the last 10weeks of eating rubbish is not a result in going back to how i used to eat, I was a binger, when i was sad i hate for comfort and when i was happy i would eat to reward myself. I want to prove to myself that i can still food optomise and be happy and healthy through this pregnancy.

If you are still with me this was my stats prior to being pregnant. I got to 10.7stone.
But on my wedding day (9weeks pregnant) i was a size 10/12. 10stone 10lbs, 5, 6.5'.
My target is 10stone 4lbs and im a bridesmaid at my friends wedding in October 2012 and i would love to be back to the old lynsey by then.

So the journey of transformation started way back in 2008 and it will continue in 2012

Hope you all follow my journey and chip in if you like

A little update from me - Weekend was ok - had a little sweetie mixture bag at a evening wedding reception but apart from that i did well.

Had to visit triage at our local maternity hospital and diagnosed with a nasty UTI - feeling yucky today so not eating as much as i should - dad made me a pot of homemade soup though so having that.

I feel much more healthier this week and did feel like had more energy. I have my yoga class tommorow night so looking forward to that

Ive been naughty and not updated this in ages.

I now only have 10weeks left until my baby girl is here and after a very indulget xmas and NY - im hoping to give my all to this plan

It hasnt been easy - i know SW isnt a diet but when you're craving things you would never and have never eaten it can become complex.

I have put on to this stage (30 weeks) - 31lbs - eekkkk - it feels huge just writting it - although everyone keeps saying i look like im still ok i feel like a huge elephant and cannot wait to fit into my normal clothes again

Most of my maternity clothes are between a 12/14 but i would love to be the myself again

Anyhow i started back class on monday and day 3 things are going well. I kinds went of the texture of fruit and yogurt but now seem to be craving it and choccy cravings are at a minimum

If your reading feel free to comments - its lonely on maternity leave lol

Im back -

After having my daugther 7 months ago - i have struggled to lose the rest of my weight gain during pregnancy. I went back to class when E was 3 weeks old but i just cant get my mind into it.

Im hoping by documenting my journey it will keep me on the right path,

I lost 2 stone from hospital to home and then another stone back at class but im struggling with the rest

The last two weeks have been difficult with health issues in our family and i have been eating alot of takeaways -

So i need to get back into old habits
