Mine came last week. My (15 week old) baby's christening is in 4 weeks. I tried on a dress and couldn't even zip it up. I actually lost weight whilst pregnant and now can't fit into a 12s, which is the size I've always been. shakes fist at malteaster bunnies I'm 11st 1lb at 5' 3'', I only want to get to ~10st as I'm very muscular but it's hard when you're knackered with a 3 month old and sat on your arse on mat leave.
I'm MFPing and trying to walk more with the pram. Diets suck
Good luck to you too Blonde I've never heard of alternate day diet, off to google. I'm upping my exercise slowly but my pelvis still feels a bit weak. My problem is I want to be really good for 2 days and for all the weight to drop off turns out that's not how it works.
I had GD so was super-strict during pregnancy. I had the fattiest christmas ever to make up for it. It was awesome eating what I wanted while it lasted though!
thighs rubbing together, spare tyre, bingo wings. That was January 2012 and my lightbulb moment. Have lost 1 1/2 stones and from size 12/14 to size 8. Shred was my starting point too. As regards to diet, I think the best thing to start off is make changes here and there that you can SUSTAIN. Life time changes I mean. These fad diets are never sustainable in the long term. Things like cutting out sugar in drinks, switching to wholemeal bread and pasta, cutting down on fizzy drinks. Also look at your portion sizes. Eating till you are say 80% full instead of so full you feel like you could pop. Try and also eat as clean as possible...staying away from processed food. Try a few of these things a bit at a time and see this as a marathon rather than a sprint. Don't look for a quick fix, look to change things slowly and for good.
Thanks Belle, I did watch the documentary about it but didn't realise that was what it was called. I don't think I could manage that, I have blood sugar issues and struggle with very restricted calories. Low GI really works for me.
Mine was at the end of last summer. I was going to a party and my favourite top didn't fit. I watched the horizon programme that started 5:2 and a lightbulb went off in my head. I've since lost 2 stone. I am now a small 12 rather than a lumpy 16. I eat bread and chocolate and drink wine. I have every intention of keeping it up for the rest of my life.
