    Hi all :)

    About me:
    I'm not new to weight watchers (or any diet for that matter! :giggle:) - i lost a few stone back in my teens with WW.

    During adulthood my weight became heavier and heavier, so I took the plunge and did a meal replacement diet (Cambridge) loosing 8 stone :D But was still 2 stone away from my goal of 11 stone when I fell pregnant. I had to abruptly stop the diet resulting in gaining 2 stone in as little as 2 months :cry::cry::cry:

    I really do not want to fall into the trap of "bugger it, i'll eat what I want" as I have done previously. I really do not want to gain the weight I have lost back. :sigh:

    My question is: Can I follow the weight watchers plan while I am pregnant? :confused:

    Help and advice would be much appreciated :)

    Hugs x

    I know you can't go to a WW class while pregnant but you can go to a SW one.

    Perhaps you could talk to your doctor or a midwife and get advice

    I was going to say the same. I don't think you can do WW when pregnant, but I know you can with slimming world.

    I think your doctor has to sign you off, to go to SW if u decide to go to one of their classes too.

    Congatulations on the pregnancy! x

    It is only a myth that you eat for 2 when your pregnant anyway. the reality is that you dont need that many more calories, you just need to ensure you are getting all the nutrients your body needs! :D
