Two Week Weight Loss And Fitness Challenge Sept 16th to Sept 30th


Weight Loss and Fitness Challenge

I'm struggling to eat less and up my fitness after having my second daughter. I really want to get my previous pregnancy body back.
I'll be here doing this challenge and after I'll set up one for October.
If you want to join in post your starting weight, a bit about yourself and what you struggle with and your two weeks goal. Then we give each other support over the two weeks.

I'll start...

Weight: tbc
Waist measurement: tbc (take measurement at the smallest part of your waist)
Fitness Goal: get 10k steps daily, introduce 2 x 15 minute weight work's per week.
Food Goal: be sugar free for two weeks and eat more vegetables.

Then let us know how you're getting on.

Count me in! I just got out for a run with a friend earlier this week, and it felt great/terrible :-)

Weight: 133 lbs
Goals: 3 mile run or workout video five days/week

I have had the hardest time being consistent with exercise since my first was born. I was very fit and active before him, and I've just really had a hard time making my fitness a priority since. There's always a kid that needs something, laundry that needs folding, kitchen that needs cleaning, etc... Maybe you ladies will help me feel more motivated!

Totally hearing you. I feel like my house is always in need of tudying/cleaning. It's hard to put yourself first though I like to remind myself that exercising is both putting me and my family first. I have to stay healthy to be there for them. However it can be harder to put into practise when the laundry piles up.

I want to join! I used to be a lovely 124 lb, but was probably around 130 lb when I conceived my daughter. I put on a horrendous amount of weight with her (she was 8 lb 15 oz) and I was enormous. By 10 weeks pp I had lost a lot of it through breastfeeding and while I was a bit baggy and saggy, I think I looked ok. However, she's now 2 and I've ballooned again. I'm about 148 lb now and only 5'4", so verging on being overweight.

I'd be happy to lose a stone.

I'm eating a lot better now ... for a while I lived on crap, and hardly ever drank plain water so I think that added badly to my calorie intake.

So ...

Weight: 148 lb
Waist: I don't want to know.
Fitness goal: I did a 15 minute Youtube workout for a week or two a couple of months ago but quickly quit. I plan to start this again and get out more, just walking with my daughter.
Food goal: Drink just water. My diet is really fine, though I'm not going to bother with sugar any more, as it's just empty calories.

I don't mind if I'm never as skinny again as I used to be. If I could just lose my saggy belly overhang, I'd be happy.

Maybe we should post a picture of a time we felt really content with ourselves as inspiration ... would people find that embarrassing? I might do one ...

How has everyone's first day gone? I've had two days as I'm in new Zealand. Nothing dramatic for me.
I'm going to make an effort today.

Donna - you are doing brilliantly and we'll done on losing weight. I'm fat too. I'm about 13 and a half stone. I don't want to be skinny but want to be 10 stone.

Ate two Quorn burgers and a gigantic salad for tea. Didn't really bother with lunch as was feeling a little nauseous (I may be pregnant lol) ... been on a walk but not done any sort of workout. Need to kickstart that!
