    OK girls - I'm joining in.

    Current weight: 72kg
    Goal weight: 64kg



    Did lite n easy for a week but was STARVING as I'm bf. So I'm kinda doing WW points, but not going to meetings. Because I'm bf I'm giving myself 26 a day, sometimes more. I'll be back at the gym in a week, so that should help. Swimming & running are my preferred exercise.

    Look forward to sharing this journey with you all!

    With WW, is there a minimum amount you need to lose to join? I was thinking about joingin as I am 5 kilos off my goal, a dn I really like the idea of the point plan WRT maintaining weight, and b/f (potentially in the next 12-18 months )

    Ray - you have to be at least 5kg over the lowest weight in your healthy weight range. So that should be fine. And the best bit is that once you reach your goal (has to be at leastt 5kg loss) you become a lifetimer & all meetings are free (whilever you maintain your goal weight).

    Name: nattyg
    Start Weight: 75kg
    Current weight as of 17/09/2007: 70kg
    Ideal Weight: 59kg or less
    Height: 160cm
    Notes: I'm trying to loose my baby weight! I put on 20kg with my DD and so far I have only managed to shift 5kg. My diet is up and down - it all depends on what I have time for!
    I tend to only manage a coffee for breakfast or maybe a few times a week a bowl of 3weetbix. Lunch usually hits about 2pm and I will make a salad sandwich. Dinner tends to be up and down but it does tend to be healthy most times! Meat with salads and or veg. I used to go for 1 to 2 walks per day but I got really dissapointed because I was not seeing any weight shift! So now I have really given up on that. Although with all the running around I do with DD, DH the dogs and looking after the house I do feel like I get a bit of exercise! lol!
    My biggest problem is the jelly belly and the thunder thighs.
    I am going away on Tuesday for a week and a half so I won't have much time to read up in here but I will be getting more exercise because I will be around family who will make me do it! So fingers crossed I go down and not up!

    Name: rayray
    Start Weight: 97kg
    Current weight as of 24/09/2007: 78kg (lost 1.6kg)
    Ideal Weight: between 72-75kg
    Height: 184cm
    Notes:I put on 35+kg during my pregnancy. Prior to that I had lost 23 kilos and had let it all off til about 12 weeks in to my pregnancy. I managed to lose 15 kilos pretty fast initially, but put some back on again and stayed around 92 til mid this year when I went back up to 97. .
    Fast forward to today, I have lost about 17 kilos since July 14, and am feeling a lot better. Most of my pre-preg stuff is fitting again - even things that I know only fit me at my goal weight fit now, so I think the weight I'm carrying is distributed differently or something.
    My original aim was to get to goal by Christmas, but now I am hoping to get to my goal weight by October 27, for my brothers engagement party.

    Notes:got to 131kg at 9mths preg with dd, last year, and have lost and gained the same 8 or so kg about 10 times since. Very frustrating!

    Ideal Weight: Between 75kg-80kg
    Height:
    Notes: I have PCOS so following a low GI diet. After losing very little baby weight, then nearly 3 years of fertility treatment and IVF leading to gradual weight gain, and 3 miscarriages which have lead to a lot of comfort eating, I have stacked on a massive 15-ish kg's this year I started last Monday so I'm just into my first week and have yet to weigh. I'm also doing aerobics videos at home every day.

    Ideal Weight: 60-66kg
    Height:
    Notes: height: 165cm. I have put on at least 5kgs with each of my pg. With this last one,I put on 10kg then when I had her, I actually lost 2kgs on my pre pg weight. BUT!! I am now back up to the same weight I was the week that I gave birth *hangs head in embarrassment*. My BMI tells me that I am boarderline obese!! I am unfit and unhealthy and completely uncomfortable in my skin. I will be loosley following Weight Watchers, though not actually doing the programme. I have had success with it in the past, losing 7kgs about five yrs ago on it. I have loined the gym and plan to go every second day, and walk with my DD other days.

    Ideal Weight: 60kg (or less)
    Height:
    Notes:I'm 5 foot 3 so I'm way too heavy. My weight started to come on in my late 20's when I first started to TTC. I had the opinion that I would be pregnant soon so it didn't matter if I put some weight on I'd lose it afterwards. I still have all the weight on me and I'm 41.... and childless. In my mid twenties I was a size 8-10 now I'm a 16-18 in most clothes (some jeans size 14).
    Since the miscarriage in March I've been watching what I eat a bit, but not following any plan. Since throwing my man out last weekend I have lost around a kilo. Now that I don't have a man and child in the house to tempt me with junk I'm hoping it will be easy to start to lose some more weight.
    I'm also going to attempt to walk the dog every day.

    Name: Ngala
    Start Weight: 94kg (end of pg weight)
    Current weight as of 24/09/2007: 80kg (lost 0.5kg)
    BMI: 27
    Ideal Weight: 65kg-70kg (or less)
    Height: 172cm
    Notes: Before getting pregnant I was at the gym trying to lose weight but couldnt get past 72kg. In October last year I got pregnant with bub #1. Over the 9 months I gained 22kg. My lowest point was when I realised I weighed more than DF's tallest mate!! DD was born 23/07/07 and 10 kg dropped off pretty much straight away. I am breast feeding so the weight is slowly coming away. I am getting married in December this year and would love to get to my pre-baby weight but would be happy to lose 5kg!
    Exercise = I go to the gym about 3 times a week and work on all the weights and cardio stuff. I try to take my dogs out for an hours work every day.
    Diet = I try to eat everything in moderation!! I do have my bad moments but am generally pretty healthy.

    BMI: 27.3
    Ideal Weight: 60kg or less
    Height: 160cm
    Notes: Gave birth 6 weeks ago now, and was 78 kg then, lost 8 without trying, which means the rest is up to me. I have been addicted to ice cream and chocolate for the past 6 weeks too, and decided this week I wasn't buying any, going cold turkey.
    I lost weight over 2 years before becoming pg, and used weight watchers to kick start so I will be using what I learned then. I hope to do a fair bit of walking to help things along.

    Notes: I had my baby in August 07 and at 4wks I've got 1kg to go to be back to my pre-baby weight!
    I'm looking to now lose some more weight, which will hopefully reduce the hideous look of my mummy tummy. I lost 10kg back in 2005, so if I could do it then, I can do it now. Also, my DH is trying to lose weight too, so I can be motivation for him as well. I'm going to start walking every day to start things off and try and fix my sore back.

    Current weight as of 17/09/2007: Hovering around 100kg
    Ideal Weight: 75kg
    Height:175cm with big bones and lots of muscle
    Notes: Hoping to start TTC next year and trying to shape up to assist with what I suspect will be problematic fertility issues. Thyroid problems and family history of obesity don't help either!
    As I am childless, I have the luxury of going to a gym which I love! Seriously. Walking outside (especially alone) is just not my cup of tea, but I like the gym. So if you can give it a try, I would suggest seeing what your local gyms are like.
    I have "food issues" - you don't get to 122 without food issues - but I've been seeing a hypotherapist which I *think* has been working. But still have a major lack of control of what I eat. I so admire people who can stick to a diet like Tony Ferguson.
    Also, I've been replacing some of my meals with Slim Right shakes - you can just get the powder from Coles, it's not that expensive and tastes okay. It took me about 6 weeks to get used to the taste but now I genuinely enjoy them. Try them.

    Current weight as of 17/09/2007: 80kg approx
    Ideal Weight: 60kg
    Realistic Weight: 70kg
    Height:
    Notes: When I was 16 weeks pregnant with my first I weighed 62kg and haven't gotten back down there since. After DS I nearly got back down but then got depressed about things in my life and sat on my bu** all day eating. My first weigh in when pregnant with DD I was 86kg I didn't weigh in at the end of pregnancy but am having a guess that I hit 100kg. 2 weeks after I had DD I started Tony Ferguson weighing in at 91kg. I lost 20kg!! yes 20kg in 8 weeks I got down to 71kg. Then I stopped TF and started eating like [email protected] again and have put on 11kg in 8ish months.
    So I am now trying a different approach. I have been having a shake for breakfast and "trying" to eat healthy during the day. Every morning Before Breakfast I get on my exercise bike for 20 mins going 12 secs slow 8 secs fast for the whole 20 mins. (ok so I skip a couple days here and there)
    I don't own scales so I weigh in at TF every Friday as that's the only time I can get there.

    Notes: Have been on this TTC rollercoaster for 13 months now and i have just piled on the weight. When i started i was about 72kg so started out overweight anyway and now its worse. We are on a TTC break for 3 months so we started our diets today. We are trying the Sacred Heart Hospital Soup Diet. Yay.... Kim is on the diet with me, she is about 84kg and would like to be around 70kg. I think it would be too hard to keep track of Kim as well so I'll just do my weigh in's and will probably talk about Kim's weight loss aswell along the way.

    Notes: I am currently with weight watchers and has lost 2kg already. I have started gym at the begining of the month again, so that would help shift the kilo's. I love going to gym. I have never been thin, my whole life. I was always above 80kg in high school (heaviest at 86kg - met my DH like that) and has only lost the weight just before getting pg (go figure) I was down to 68kg, but my goal was always 65kg. So now I have given myself till end of the year to reach it, because I am not getting pg for nr 2 before nr 1's weight has come off!

I have since lost 4kg doing weight watchers (not going to meetings, just online), but am struggling to lose the last 5Kg. I love chocolate and this is my vice. I have been excersising, but am thinking about joining a gym with a couple of other mums from playgroup to keep my motivation. We are going on holidays in November to QLD so would love to lose it before then to get into a pair of bathers! Also, having some family pics done in a couple of months too, so want to look good for those.

    Oh sorry Soul!! I did kinda voluntee to do a list at the beginning of the thread. If you want to keep track of the list, you can!! I got no problem with that

    OK, I got a question to those that are on weight watchers or any similar diets. What sort of stuff do you eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks? Are there any supplements involved?? My sis wants to get me on to a diet when I finish breastfeeding but it involves taking supplements and not sure if I want to go down that road!

    Veronica - I'm 184cm

    *las* there are loads of good bathroom scales on ebay, you can usually get some for $20-$50 plus postage, that would retail for well over that price.

    In normal department stores, Soehnle and salter are good brands.

    Soul - sorry matey. I didn't mean to dismiss what you did, I can see you went to some trouble there. I hope I didn't upset you.

    V - with ww you can eat pretty much anything, which is why I love it each food has a points value & you just use them on your choice of foods.

    I have Soehnle scales (free on our credit card rewards points) & they're great.

    V - my height is 168cm. Do you think we should all put our BMI? I think that would be great! Should we all vote on it?

    I think anyone who wants to put the BMI up on the list then they can. I have no problem with it as I am ready to be totally honest!

    I cant wait to do the first weigh in tomorrow morning!! Gosh, I hope I remember to do it before I eat breakfast! Things are hard to remember when you have a hungry baby.
