Need a dieting buddy!


A little backstory... I had twins 15 months ago. I didn't gain too much while I was pregnant with them but they were born prematurely, so after their birth, all I was focused on was them, I didn't care about myself at all. Couple that with spending all of my time at the hospital and eating takeaways late at night when I got home, my weight ballooned.

In May I weighed myself and I was shocked to see the scales read 12 stone 2lb!
I put it to the back if my mind for a while... Stupid I know.
Then on the boys birthday, my sister took a photo of me. And I seriously didn't recognise that person. I looked huge.
So I decided to do something about it, I rejoined my fitness pal and stuck to 1200 calories a day.
I did really well up until Christmas when I fell of the wagon.

Now I'm finding it difficult to get back in control.
I'm so annoyed with myself as I was doing so well.

I now weigh 10stone 11. Which I'm still really not happy with. I still look the same when I look in the mirror.
So I need to get back on it, big time!

The lbs are already creeping back on. I'd gained 3lb when I weighed myself last Friday. However, AF has decided to show up today so I'm putting abit of that down to water weight as I was unbelievably bloated before it came. (And still am).

Sooo, anyone wanna help me along? I want to get back down to 9 stone.

If you're still using MyFitnessPal, feel free to add me! I try to stick to around 1200 calories.

Taking breaks can be a good thing for the overall picture, so don't be too hard on yourself! It's good practice for maintaining once you get to your weight goal.
