I've just been to my first Weight watchers meeting today!

They have given me an information pack and a plan which is ok for BFing mums and a special leaflet for those BFing. You are not expected to lose weight at the same rate as when not BF; about 1lb a week instead of 2lb. It's important to keep drinking plenty too. It looks quite gentle and easy to follow.

After trying the WW diet for a few weeks on my own I thought I'd try a meeting to see if I am on the right tracks. It was pretty informative and I feel better knowing that I am following a proper plan for BFing instead of muddling through on my own. Hopefully will see some results....
