I gave birth to my dd recently, and I feel as if I weigh more than I did when I was pregnant.
Many people didn't realise I was pregnant until they saw my bump, which was quite flattering to hear but since she's been born I have carried on 'eating for 2'
Anyway just got out of the bath and into my pjs and my god I look bloody hideous. The waistband is tight and I look 4 months pregnant.
When I met DH I was a size 6, I was a dancer, but since I stopped I've to-yo'ed between a size 10-14.
I'd love to be a 10 but I honestly don't know where to start. Please help me.

I struggle too. I'm at the biggest I can cope with at the moment so it's time for me to get my act together.

If you can give it a good go, low carbing is brilliant for losing weight, and it's good for your health too.

Good luck!

How old is your baby? Are you breast feeding?

Ok, so you are over the first few months! What do you think might work for you? Have you ever tried to lose weight before? Are you the one who cooks at home? How much do you think you want to lose?

I've tried the MyFitnessPal app before. Lost a just under a stone using that a couple of years ago.
Ideally I'd like to lose a 15-20lbs.
I do the cooking I'm just finding portion control very hard.

I've lost 3 stone on sw. If you like cooking its very easy to follow and you can cook family meals.

I've lost my baby weight and then a bit more. Took a while but it's staying off.
