I have followed weight watchers before too, I liked it as well

Oh I am terrible with fruit, I've changed my chocolate to a low fat cereal bar instead, I find it substitutes quite well

A 2lb loss is great! My scales have broken which I am Actually glad about, I haven't weighed in a while and I'm scared if I see too much of a high number it won't motivate me at all, so for now I am seeing how I fit back into a favourite blouse of mine. (I know what I weighed the last time I got on the scales so when I get round to buying more I'll just see where I'm at then) I don't want to put too much pressure on myself as that's when it all goes down the drain

Do you get much time to exercise? x

Literally no time at all!! Which is horrible as I played a lot of sports before becoming a mum, so I am the most unfit I have ever been!
That's a good idea to use the blouse as a measure I do that with a couple of pairs of jeans too. But I have to keep an eye on the scales as well

I figured I'd have to do a little bit of house-based exercise every day, like squats, planks, lunges until my circumstances change and I can get to the gym
Good luck with your mission! I'm glad to have fat-busting buddies on here now! x

HI Ruth and mummy - nice too meet you. I've got my real food rules (when baby is here) for 90% of the time. I'm not going to stress if I stray and I'll do my best to eat as healthily as I can. I lost lots of weight before on real food eating with little to no refined carbs so I'm hoping it works again.

Hi spudtastic!

I did the low carb before too, and although it was super hard it does work, I lost weight real quick! I can't live without carbs right now though so that's a no go for me

Yeah I was a total carb girl before I did it. It was hard. This pregnancy though has given me an aversion to carbs which could explain why I haven't put on much weight this pregnancy (even though my midwife tells me I have a sizeable baby).

I do plan to eat oats though. I love oats/porridge.
I'm still going to have potatoes and rice. I'm just going to stay away from bread and pasta and cereals. Which currently sounds easy to me since just writing about them makes me want to throw up but once my baby arrives and my weird pregnancy aversions go they may be yummy again.

Now my problem is cake. I love cake. I can eat cake every day. Mmmmmmmmmm.

Ooooh you see I love bread so much!!! I try not to eat too much but it is a favourite of mine, cake on the other hand is too sickly for me, I'm a crisp and sweets kind of gal!

I see your over due with baby now, you must be feeling tired by now, I bet your so excited!!

Wow, I checked the first few days after I created and had had no responses so haven't checked in a bit and now look! It's so lovely to hear from you all!
I feel restricting myself too much, especially in the beginning, can lead to failure on my part. Been researching what beach body program I would like to start though and leaning towards Cize which is like Zumba. Have also ordered a shakeology sample, would like to start doing meal replacement, but I loooove protein shakes so don't think I will feel deprived with it. My muscles are ALL sore, I have been doing my prenatal exercises as well as you tubing exercises for target areas like my abs, and butt and thighs because I have always hated my butt and thighs! And my husband gym addict helps me work extra on abs.

Amy, you get used to baby! I remember how hard it was with my first... This baby is my third, lol it becomes old hat.

Hey spud, I've seen you around quite a bit!

I don't think I could cut carbs either �� I try to exercise portion control and I might investigate wheat pasta soon. I cut out white bread and only eat wheat. I love dairy, and made the switch to 2% milk from whole which was hard.

I need to add in some cardio to my exercises which is why I'm leaning toward Cize! Double jogger soon to be purchased (found an awesome deal a couple hours away and hubs is going to pick it up for me next week while there on business) although squish is too little to ride yet.
I haven't done exercise today yet but going to as soon as I get baby girl down. My tougher DVD is skipping which really irritates me!! That's the one I went for yesterday.

Hey

This is baby number two for me I think that why I'm finding it difficult to shift this weight now, I've never tried the meal replacement shakes, I love food too much

This is only my second week on plan, I've chosen healthy meals so far (one treat last week) we ate out at a restraunt, one thing I haven't given up is my glass of wine with my dinner on an evening, but I won't stress too much about that as once I start stressing I will fail all together x

I love my food, but mostly dinners lol! I love to cook and make good things to eat for my family. And I will cook my Sunday breakfasts and not feel bad about a snack before bed or a beer with dinner, no way. Because exactly, once you start depriving yourself of everything is like the kids of death...

Got my workout done, they are ten minute segments and I finished two plus most of a third before my little got upset. But I had a nice sweat going! And now I'm thinking of bundling them up and going for a walk in a little bit! Love this colder weather!
