Hi all,


Hope your all well?

Thought i'd dip my toe back in here as used to be on here all the time before i got pregnant.

I did CD for 7 months and lost 5 stone, got from a size 24 to almost a size 14!

I felt so damb good about myself, managed to get into the clothes i liked in shops and everyone told me i looked great and i've never felt better.

I got down to 12 stone 10lbs then met someone and two months into our relationship i got pregnant! We are still together and really happy, only have 5 weeks left till he arrives and i am excited but really scared about the birth as it's my first.

Anyway i just weighed myself like an idiot as i have eaten lots throughout my pregnancy, especially lately as fed up and want my body back and the gym and can't wait to get back on CD. I weigh 15 stone 10lbs!!! I have put on 3 stone!!! I so have to eat healthy and eat less for the last 5 weeks!!

So my plan is to breast feed if i can for about 2 months and cut out bread, potatoes and pasta, but still eat healthy. Then beginning Oct i can start CD again!

Just can't wait to get my body back as feel **** and confidence has gone down and don't feel sexy any more, which is also affecting our sex lives!!

Any body else been through this?

Thanks

Don't worry the average weight gain during a pregnancy is 2stone 2lbs. That accounts for baby, placenta amniotic fluid and increased blood volume. (so you have only put on 12lb) Once you deliver it takes a while for everything to settle and blood volume to decrease. Breast feeding will help no end with weight loss. Keep eating healthily and you know you can lose that with CD after you stop breastfeeding.
Good luck with your delivery. Jayne x
