I have gained 2 1/2 stone during and after my DS, who is now 10 months, was born. I'm desperate to lose the weight by the end of the summer, as I have to be in a satin strapless bridesmaid's dress for my future sister-in-law's wedding! I also feel a bit down not being able to fit into any of my old size 14 clothes. Now I am a size 18, which is so depressing that I don't want to admit that I could use a shopping trip for clothes! In the past I have lost a lot of weight by writing down all of my calories for the day and eating no more than 1500. Would anyone like to join me?
