    Hi girls,

    Thought I might come here for some motivation too. I have pretty steadily put on weight with each of my pg's, starting with about 8kg's with my first, about 5 with my 2nd, (though these pg's ended in m/c probably why I never lost the weight, stress!) 5 with the 3rd and 5 with the 4th. Which has brought me to my highest weight- 89kg post baby. I got up to about 98 with this pg (OMG!!!) and am now about 85kg. My lightest weight has been 65kg, so I've never been really slim, but I would love to get back there! I never knew how good it was, LOL!
    So I have about 20kgs to lose, wow......it's a bit daunting when I put it down in writing....
    I have been walking with the kids in the double pram, and pushing that (about 25kg with both kids in it!) around is challenging in my current unhealthy, unfit state! I also have to lug them up and down three flights of stairs to get anywhere since we live in a third floor unit. ANd have cut out chocolate and dairy for DS (he gets colicky when I eat it). So that has all contributed to losing a few kg's after only 5wks. I will have to take more notice of what I eat!
    Anyway enough rambling!

    Hi girls!

    Thought I would come in here and hopefully give encouragement and get some in my quest to lose baby weight! I put on 15kg with my DS (8 weeks old tomorrow) and have lost 10kg. I have three weight loss goals:

    #1: Get to pre-pregnancy weight (5kg to go)
    #2: Get below 70kg (another 3kg)
    #3: Get to 65kg (another 5kg)

    I was 65kg for *ages* but put on the 5kg last year due to a missed miscarriage and couldn't seem to get it off.

    Here's what I'm doing:

    * Going to the gym 3x a week (30 minutes cardio, 30 minutes weights)
    * Breastfeeding
    * Not drinking soft drinks, trying to drink as much water as possible
    * Eating healthily but not being obsessive about it

    i just joined up with this weight watchers program. i've never used them before but my last couple of attempts at dieting have failed miserably, i realise i need help. hopefully i'll be able to keep on track this time.

    Great job, lolla!
    If you would like there is a thread for people who want to lose weight which is more active than this one is at the moment- 2009 Weightloss Challenge (or something similar to that! Sorry don't know how to post links). I'm sure it would be ok for you to join up if you want to!

    So hopefully I can post some good results soon.

    i found the long weekend a bit harder . as we were camping you don't tend to watch what you eat. i have a weigh in on thursday so i'm trying extra hard to stay the same by then and not gain any.

    good luck

    hi all
    I need all the help I can get. I have weight issues most of my life and I am now somewhere a little over 100kg and want to get to 65kg - so a whopping 35kg.

    I have an almost 5 year old and a very demanding 8 month old (also not a big sleeper - like you BekZ). My main problem is emotional eating which I need to tackle head one. I eat mainly when I am tired, under pressure, in demand & grumpy (which happens alot). Chocolate & biscuits are my vice of choice.

    Keen to have somewhere to share my progress. Planning to stick to high protein, low carb plan with some exercise when i can with baby.... Any advice with eating plans and how to stick to this long term would be great!

    R x

    joy mama: i have found the low gi diet easier to do than the low carb high protein. for me the low carb diet made me feel so tired but the low gi diet has given me energy.
    i gained nothing while away camping for one week. and my mum ( who hardly ever says anything nice to me) even told me today i looked like i had lost some weight since xmas day. so that was good for me.

    i have the " low gi diet revolution book" and i use it all the time. i find this realisitic and easy to prepare meals that taste good and i am loosing weight.

    hope you find some answers.
    also maybe some walks with bubs in the pram, i go with friends as i am 1o times more likely to go if i book it in with someone else.

    keep up the good work.
