Yes folks It's that time, the time that comes in all new Mums lives. It's time I really have to think about shifting some of the extra weight I'm carrying around with me!
I'd love to call it baby weight but its not, Its me! I lost the 2 and a half stones I put on with Sophie within the first 4 weeks but, more and more, meeting up with friends involved lunches out, cake (or both) and lots of lattes!
I have always struggled with my weight, dieting, starving, binging, loosing weight, putting it on I'm actually bored of it!
I was following one such stupid diet (begins with an A) and had lived off cottage cheese and cucumber the week before we discovered I was pregnant! I was so disappointed that my weight meant I was classed as a high risk pregnancy and felt so guilty when I developed gestational diabetes that I swore I would deal with my weight once and for all after our baby was born. (injecting yourself with insulin and stabbing your fingers 5 times a day is a horrible experience!)
So here I am, Sophie is nearly 20 weeks old, I am healed and she is more often than not sleeping through so I feel human again. Well enough to fulfill my promise to myself (and my family!) with a little help from an old friend!
I was going to go it alone following the old point system but then decided it would be a good Idea to have a fresh start, new plan, new me, forget the past and just go for it!
Thursday saw me join Weight Watchers Online so I'm 4 days in and getting my head round the new point values and exploring the site!
My friend, Mummy of twins and cake eating partner in crime Liz has started the plan today too!
I hope you don't mind if I share my journey with updates now and again?
Dieting tips appreciated!!!!
Lots of Love
