I was 10 stone the summer before I got pregnant (2006). I'm now 12 and a half stone. That's an increase of 25%

What percentage have you gained? Anyone manage to shift it? <hopeful emoticon>

I'm thinking of doing Slimming World, and also just have '25%' as a mantra in my head at all times!

i started slimming world a year ago when dd was 6 weeks old i had lost a stone when i gave birth, have lost 1 stone 10lb since and have another 5lb to go to get back to pre pregnancy weight, then another stone to get back to wedding weight!LOL
hard work tho when sometimes i only have time for a snack!

I weighed 10 and a half stone pre baby. When I came home from the hospital after having DS, I weighed 14 stone shock - I nearly died.

Im now 11 stone 4. Finding it so hard to shift those last few pounds!

sounds like you done really well
i was gutted when i came home few days after having lily to find that i had only lost half a stone when she weighe8lb never mind the fluid placenta etc, how could i only lose 7lb???
its takes a whle doesn't it and fitting in regular swimming and classes not as easy anymore and walkng with a baby and a dog not as dog pulls really hard, ut getting there slowly, have you done slimmg world before? i find it quite good x

I'd never thought of it like that. I was nine and a half stone and am now 11 and a half. Admittedly nine and a half was pretty darn thin for me. I've just started cutting out alcohol and carbs as I am sick of it (DS was born 21/2 years ago)

Thanks, Ive done Weight Watchers, but totally fed up with it TBH. Was thinking of doing slimming world but none of the meetings where we live are on the days that fit in with my work arrangements.

Well done to you too Lilyrose

oysterpots - keep with it - determination is the key IMO!

oh thats a shame, sometimes a change can kick start things again :0)
i looked into weight watchers as a change but didnt like that they set your target weight according to BMI charts instead of you yourself, plus same as you my slimming world classes fall on the right days where as WW didnt.
you can join on line but i dont think this has the same motivation ans support as going to a class....but thats me everyone is different.
