Hi everyone,

Thought we'd start a new thread for new-ish mums with wibbly tums (+ thighs and bum in my case grin )
Old threads here

and here

Plus an old stats thread, though we could start a new one.

Everyone's following their own plan I think. Mine's a more or less low-carb affair, plus the 30 day shred. I've got 18lbs to lose, aiming for about 1lb/week - low due to love of chocolate grin

Oh I think I grew a second stomach when pregnant! !! I can still eat for England. I have to not snack at all to avoid calories so stick to three meals a day and extra veg or salad can't eat like s sparrow. Starving does not cut it so the extra veg helps and I usually eat a whole lettuce loads of celery cucumber. All the green stuff u can have tons of.
Use to have big mac hamburger two large fries large coke and apple pie I could eat more so glad I have control.

Hi everyone - having a bit of a slack week here... Trying to do WW vaguely but not logging anything. Also finding it v hard to do the shred - DP has been at home the last 2 weeks and my routine has gone out of the window. He's back at work next week so I shall be back on it! Also will be easier to stick to diet as he's addicted to marked-down supermarket food and tends to fill the fridge with stuff like custard tarts that he's bought for 10p - very annoying...

I went rollerblading this evening with the pushchair - felt a bit wobbly but didn't fall over thank god.

Oh, and my running bra arrived in the post today - F cup blush hope to try it out by the end of the week.

Welcome MrsHelsBels - 4.5 stone is a lot to lose, but it can be done! There are no quick fixes, but starting now is a great start. Best to break it down into smaller goals, and lose it steadily. I just try to think about 5kg at a time as otherwise it feels impossible

Hi. I havent been on for a couple of weeks but weighed myself this morning and have lost 1kb on 2 weeks. I have started my training plan for the run but food wise been eating everything i shouldnt so need to try and improve on that. But, its not a gain so im happy!
Are there any runners out there? I flicked through the next couple of weeks of the plan and it looks like it expects me to get to 50 minute run in 3 weeks. Is this doable? I can knock out 20 min at the mo. That seems a big increase very soon! It is the beginners plan.
I will check in next week to give you an update on weight.

Lamby -in my opinion, that's a huge leap, if you do 20 mins one week, then 30 then next, 40 week after etc. then I think it's a bit much for your joints etc. Are you running or run/walking? I started off run/walk and am increasing the time I'm out for but also decreasing the walks, so started out doing 20 mins for 2mins run, 1min walk - but can now do 30 mins with 4 mins run, 1 min walk etc.

I've found that I can't run in an evening, i always used to get up and go out before breakfast so it's just alien to me to try running in an evening after a day of eating. So, instead I'm hopping on my bike, I'm really loving it as well which is great. I'm still incredibly nervous, I wobble everywhere and am terrified of falling off into nettles!

Weight-wise, I'm not doing so great, DH has been away so I've been turning to my old friend - food. I'm annoyed with myself and determined this isn't going to continue.

Hi all, can I join. DS2 was born on 3rd June. After I weighed in at 16 stone. With BF, walking and really watching that I eat a healthy diet I have lost 1stone 3 lbs and now 14stone 11lbs. Aim to get to 11st7lbs by October and today started the shred DVD and will introduce running again once pelvis feels healed!

Desperate to get it off and feel some confidence again!!
