Accountability thread


Hey mamas! I'm hoping to start an accountability group for women like me-- who have the post baby body and want to tone and drop some weight but lack the motivation, especially when going it alone.

I would love to do daily check-ins, maybe after our routine for the day, to say what we have done, how our diet is looking, weigh-ins, that sort of thing. And check-in even when we have skipped, slipped up, so that we can get motivated to get back on track!

It can also be a resource on fitness regimes that we have tried and loved or hated, where we can get recommendations from other moms like us and not the sales ladies who will profit.

If there is another thread like this, please direct me, otherwise I am so ready to get on track! I'll start with me in a new post

My name is Katie! I am 30, am almost four weeks post partum after having my third (and hopefully final!) babe. I currently weigh right around 135 lbs. I don't really have a weight loss goal, but if I lose ten lbs on the path to better physical health, I wouldn't mind.
I'm not on any diet at the moment. I just try to make healthy food choices and to not overeat. I'm contemplating trying the 21 day fix because a short term regime sounds much less daunting than a complete diet change.
Currently I'm using my pre-natal workout DVDs (that I started but then stopped!! This is why I need this thread!). Today will be day three. I'm definitely sore in my shoulders, abs, a bit in the thighs, and back. I'm looking into a double jogger so that I can start taking my youngest two on walks, and possibly join my hubby at the gym at the indoor track.
That's it for now. I'm so hoping I get some ladies to join me in this-- it's the only way I'll succeed, and hopefully it will be a help to you too!

I want to lose some weight too. I had put on a bit of weight before getting pregnant, so I've got about 15lbs that need to go. But at 2-ish weeks post-birth, I'm barely managing taking care of baby. I don't know how you mamas are doing it!

I'm hoping to eat well and maybe that'll at least stop me from putting on more weight! I'm also going that once I get more comfortable with baby, we'll be able to get out of the house. Right now, I'm supposed to be recovering from an emcs, so I should be taking it easy.

I'll join you but I haven't even had my baby yet. I'm due today.
I did weigh myself today for interest and I'm 87 kg (292 lbs).
Goal is 64kg.

I intend to do it by eating whole foods which includes full fat milk and cheese, lots of greens and making a few sugar free treats along the way.

Me too!

I had my baby a year ago & if I'm honest I've just been lazy but now we are into a new year and I'm feeling like I can do this, I'm not doing strict diets because that is where I end up falling off the wagon! I am making healthy choices and cutting out the junk.

Looking forward to sharing all gone journeys ladies

Hi ladies!
I haven't been on baby n bump for a very long time, but I decided to come on today looking for this exact kind of thread I really need accountability when trying to lose weight, and talking to others who are sticking to their path keeps me motivated. I currently have a definite 2 stone (28 pounds) to lose, that would put me at my getting married/getting pregnant each time weight. But ideally I would like to lose a further 7 pounds after that as that would be my most comfortable weight.
I'm 35 and I have two dd's, ages 4 and 1 (almost 2). My dh would like a third, but at this weight there is no way I would consider pregnancy.
Looking forward to checking in on here and keeping up with all your news x

Ruth - that's the exact reason I came on this morning, I loved this site while pregnant with both my children but I guess now is a time to use it for something different!

Haha! Same as that, I started using it when TTC and then loads during pregnancy and when they were little babas, but being busy has kept me away lately. Now is the time to use the power of the sisterhood to shift this flab! x

Absolutely!! Are you following any particular diet? Or just a healthy eating plan? Myself I am just choosing healthy choices, I think as soon as I start restricting myself too much I will fall off track.

I really need to get some more exercise in though! X

I'm the same as you, trying to make healthy choices and keep away from junk. I've set myself the rules of having to eat an apple and a carrot as snacks every day, and only allowed chocolate once a day (I had gotten out of hand!). I'm better when on a plan (like WeightWatchers) to be honest, but I can't afford that right now. So far, I'm a week into this and have lost 2 lbs. I had a wedding last weekend and I knew between the booze and the hangover food I wouldn't hit the big numbers
Also, I am getting no exercise too! That really needs to change! X
