Hello there and congratualtions on the birth of baby number 3!!
Firstly I would like to say that its very early for you to be thinking about loosing weight, your baby is less than a week old! I know we all want to get back into shape asap, and I appreciate that you said you want to do it sensibly and you food looks great and healthy, BUT
A week after having a baby you should be concerntrating on your baby and your own body, by letting it recover from the birth, and the pregnancy, surely you can wait a month at least before you start worrying about what you weigh and loosing the extra weight??
Please dont get me wrong I am not condeming you for wanting to get back on track asap, but your life is going to be hectic enough and your body is going to be put through the mill, just by everyday life(and nights!!) and you will prob find running around after 3 kids your weight will start to drop off anyway.
Again huge congrats on the baby, but take time to let your body heal before you start dieting hon.
Love to you

Food looks just fine hun!!

Trust me....keep to that and the weight will just drop off :D

congratulations! x
it could ALWAYS be worse.

I had my baby a week past on Saturday (oliver is 10 days old today).

I was losing weight whilst pregnant and put on 11lb during the pregnancy. The galling thing is that I'm HEAVIER now than I was the morning before Oliver was born !!!! 4lb heavier !!!

I've been keeping to a sensible diet the whole way through and no way is it possible to put weight on like that. I do have a huge amount of fluid retention especially in my legs and feet (still can't get shoes or socks on)

Today I've had :

2 x slices wholemeal toast with olive oil spread
cup of tea (just a little skimmed milk)

piece of quiche for lunch - approx 250kcal and a low fat yoghurt
another cup of tea

going to be chicken stir fry for dinner - loads of veggies and very healthy

maybe an pure fruit juice ice lolly after dinner

I'm breast feeding too....
