Slimming World - Post Baby

#1
Hi there,
I've recently joined this site and have to say i think I shall spend many evenings on here. It's great to see how everyone's doing, good or bad. I've followed Slimming World since falling pregnant with my little girl who's now 8 weeks. Lost 16lb so far and only put on 1lb over my pregnancy so very pleased with myself. Only wish I'd been so good with my first baby, lol.

Got a little way to go yet, but had a great loss this week (5lb) so my head is in the zone now.

Anyone else got some baby baggage to shift?

Happy slimming everyone

Hi Carrie,
I'm also new with an 8 week old daughter lol (our stats are pretty similar too lol)
I followed Slimming World all through my pregnancy and even got my 2 stone award at 38 weeks!
I look forward to seeing how you're doing

Well done to both of you! I wish I had been a member of SW during my pregnancy...it would have avoided the extra 2 stones I put on! Oh well, I'll get there eventually... Also congratulations for your babies (mine is already 10 months old and I'll be back at work soon, make the most out of it, time flies!)

wow, well done you!!! yes, our stats are very similar. i'm hoping to be at target by my birthday next year (19th July), if i average at a pound and half a week it shouldn't be a problem lol.

OMG did you seriously only put on 1lb throughout your pregnancy?!! So at 9 months you were only 1lb over? Sorry about all the questions but DH and I have decided to start trying for babies :D and I'm determined to stay on track throughout my pregnancy and beyond so reading your post was very encouraging!

sorry, no i didnt explain that very well. i was actually a pound less after having her than when i joined at the start. i was a stone heavier full term, going from 16.6 to 17.6 then down to 16.5 a a week later. my little one weighed 8.5 so we worked out i'd lost roughly 7 from myself.even maintaining is good so definately try to stay on plan. its good for baby too. they predicted i'd have a 10lb baby with my bmi rate so coming out at 8.1 she was a lot lighter than we thought.
happy conceiving :) x

My baby is 6 weeks and i've joined SW. I think having her gave me the motivation to join and loose weight. I don't want to pass my bad eating onto her in the future and i want to run around after her and go swimming feeling good about myself. I'd defaintly stay on SW when it comes to baby number 2!

Hello me to, although by baby is 7 months now! i put on 2 and half stones by the end of my pregnancy, the last stone and a half literally in the last 2 months!! x

My babys pram can't keep up with me! I've always enjoyed walking but it was a bit boring on my own, now i've got someone to go with me! Even if she falls to sleep as soon as we get out the door!

I have gained in all my pregnancies 19 years ago I gained 2 stone with my 1st didnt bother to lose weight after then 2 years later had my 2nd I actaully came out of hospital the same weight as pre pregnancy she was a big girl (almost 10lb) and I reckon she ate all my food :D:D:D but then stuck at home breast feeding in another month I gained yet another stone now fast forward 12 years I had finally lost my baby weight and decided to go for it again baby number 3 (now age 5) saw a gain of 2.5 stone managed to lose a stone of that before having no 4 (now 3) then put 1.5 back on while pregnant again. Tried a few times between having number 4 and now to lose weight but never lost more than half a stone before regaining it :( then I joined SW and havnt looked back I am only just getting back to pre preg weight and still no where near I was before having number 1 child :D:D but at 41 I dont ever expect to be what I weighed at age 21 :D:D
Good luck you can do it it took me 20 years to find SW! You are lucky in that you have found it now :)
