POST BABY DIET DIARY!!!

Full Member
The background:- im 23 had a baby 10 weeks ago and now feel ready to start looking at getting into shape! (notice how i didnt say back into shape, i was never in shape in the first place!! LOL)
Before i had my little girl i was roughly 15st 7lbs and am now 16st 4lbs.
in the past i have tried WW, RC.... all sorts but i find what works best for me is good old fashioned calorie counting. :)

The Goal:- Ideally i would like to sit somewhere between 11st and 12 st.

Im going to aim for 1200 calories a day and exercise 3-5 times a week.
Will update my diet/exercise diary on here!!! I will weigh in on a Friday, starting tomorrow.

Wish me luck

Shelby xxx :D

Hi Shelby, Sounds like you have it all sussed! Only thing I wonder is why you decided to start a different diary as I see you already have one under WW I believe!?!
No problem switching to a diet that you feel more suited to and I do wish you all success in doing it as well.

i decided to change to calorie counting as i find WW a bit of a faff.... working out how much points are in things ect. nornally this didnt bother me, but with a little one i cant spend so much time on it xx

Day 1

Breakfast:-

1 slice aldi farmhouse loaf - 149
1 egg poached - 100

Lunch:-

1/2 tin aldi chicken soup - 115
2 slices aldi farmhouse loaf - 298
25g cheddar cheese - 104
small salad - 50
1tsp mayo - 109

When i nipped to the shop earlier i made a point of buying some extra light mayo i was mortified that such a small amount of normal mayo is so high in calories.

Went for a walk with my other half and little one at 1.30pm and didnt get back till 4pm!!! It Certainly blew away the cobwebs.

Dinner:-

Grilled chicken breast and roasted pepper salad. I figure this would be about 400 calories. My partner made it so couldnt say for definate. He was under strict instructions to only use fry light and not pile my plate up bless him!

Total so far :- 1325cal/0 remaining

125 over - but my big walk compensates for that i hope!

I know what you mean about mayo! I can't stand the light ones though so I'm kinda stuck with normal one! I try to use the light salad cream instead of mayo sometimes instead. Goes well with some stuff :)

I get the one that's just light I think, not the extra light one. I think it's 35cals a tbsp. I can't tell the difference between that and normal salad cream. Definitely can with mayo though. The lighter it is, the more it just tastes like egg to me!
