Posting a little late but have been on my healthy changes since the 16th I dont own any scales atm as they got ruined when the kitchen ceiling caved in! but I think I am doing pretty good, my last recorded weight was 12st 5 before the ceiling which was about 2 months ago. I think I put on a few more on top of that so anything under that will be good Stick at it everybody xx

I've ordered a copy of The Harcombe Diet and I'm going back on it. No real calorie counting involved, just dietary changes. Plenty of whole foods, little to no refined sugar, and never eat fats and carbs at the same meal. Worked for me before, so feeling optimistic - just got to stick with it this time!

HI everyone. I've been away for a few days and I have lots to catch up on so I'll get through all the posts soon. It's great to have so many people join the challenge.

My two kids have both been sick with fever and aches and they've kept me constantly busy all day and night so I'm pretty exhausted.

My dh and I made a pact last Thurs. We both chose a 'toy' that we'd really like. Mine is a laptop. We need a new one so instead of getting El cheapo I can get the flash one I like. And we can only get it once we have lost the weight.

Though I had a fail. My mil made a carrot cake. It was the best cake ever and brought half over. I ate the whole thing at lunch time. I'm an all or nothing girl too so I'm wondering if I should announce that I'm off sugar. I have no control when sugar is around
Its crazy. I don't even realise I'm eating it.

I'm going to try to get out for a walk this morning with my youngest in the front pack and hopefully my oldest can go to her grandparents.

This sounds similar to what I'm doing/trying to start. I'm doing a no grain/high in whole foods/healthy fats lifestyle. Ideally I want to do some cavity (tooth) healing diet and drop legumes and nuts too.

Think I'm going to seriously struggle to do anything from now on, as it turns out I happen to be 4 weeks pregnant lol. But I'm going to keep trying to keep the weight off as much as possible during pregnancy as my body will be destroyed forever after two babies with no real permanent weight loss in between! Got to do something!!!

Haha thanks. We were second month NTNP and I knew there was a small chance, but we'd only DTD twice and I had no symptoms so didn't think it was very likely. Lo and behold though, there's no mistaking countless second lines I've turned up in my eagerness to pee on stuff!

Congratulations, Meep! Very exciting news!! I hope the pregnancy goes very smoothly for you! We're done having kids, which I'm thrilled about, but I admit I'll miss the excitement of a positive HPT! I hope you find strength and health to take you through the pregnancy!

I've actually done quite well this week! I've stayed away from sweets, which is huge for me. I did put an Oreo in my mouth without thinking, but I stopped, thought VERY hard, and took it out. Ha. A little ridiculous, but once I start, I can't stop. I've been on a few runs and to a couple yoga classes, too. I'm feeling great. Yoga is helping my hips a lot, and the time away helps my brain!

I weighed myself yesterday, and while I'm trying to not fixate on numbers, I think I have a real chance of getting back into the 120s. That'll be a first since my MMC in 2014. I gained ten pounds for the twelve weeks I was pregnant, and my body never realized I had lost the pregnancy, so the hormones never properly flushed. Plus, I was emotional after and tend to find comfort in sweets.

We're off to a beach vacation in a few weeks, so it's my mini goal to just stay focused until then. I certainly won't be rocking a bikini, but I hope to not hate all the vacation pictures!

I would like to reach 160lbs before Christmas but I'm a little doubtful that will happen as I am 205.2 as of this morning. I tend to have two weeks a month of great losses and two weeks not so much (ovulating and before/on period).

I weighed 125 right after the birth of my oldest and would love to be able to see the 130's someday but we shall see

HI 6lilpigs. I love your name and profile. Perhaps not a bad thing to have no scales (sorry to hear about the kitchen though).
