Christmas weight gain!

Agh! Just weighed myself after Christmas and I've out on 7lbs! They say you might put on 2lbs a week but that puts me at 5lbs extra. I was already worried about my weight because at the start of my pregnancy i went on holiday and put on 4lbs and never lost it because I knew I couldn't diet. So I am now carrying like 9lbs that are not pregnancy related! I really don't want to carry that all the way through on top of the normal pregnancy weight. Did anyone else over-indulge?! Does anyone know if we can safely try to lose some of it now?

Slimming world is safe in pregnancy. I prefer just not to weigh myself fgrin

Weight gain in pregnancy can't be linear and 2lb per week must be a bald average. I'd stop fretting and chill out if I were you! It was Christmas, you were likely to overindulge. Don't beat yourself up.

I put on 6 pounds in 2 weeks nearly doubling my total weight gain just in a 2 week period. Just from eating normally, i managed to lose 2 pounds of that in two days. Must have been water weight cause of food high in fat and salt. We all put stupid amounts at xmas. Its normal! . As a target member of slimming world though, im just going back to eating well now to try and stabilse my future gains. Dont worry, it should even out in the end.
