    I only gave birth 9 days ago, but am already finding myself thinking about dieting!

    I put on roughly 5lb in pregnancy as I was a little overweight to begin with (uk size 16) so I guess I should be thankful that I didn't put on 4 stone as I do put weight on easily.

    So my question is how soon can I start something? I would like to join ww but don't mind doing it at home if they won't let me join till a certain point post partum.

    Congratulations on the arrival of your little one omg she is absolutely adorable!!! I think just when you feel ready really, I started really healthy eating and exercising after four weeks but I think most people advise and wait until Thier 6 week check up before excercising but I felt fine so I just got on with it and id had a c section but iv had no problems :)

    Are your food habits a problem? That would be a good start, to bring healthy foods into your diet. Swap unhealthy stuff for healthier stuff, eg swap walkers crisps for quavers or snack a jacks. Just little changes like that can make a difference.

    Then once you feel comfortable and ready, you could bring in a fitness dvd or something?

    On a side note, your LO is gorgeous :flower:

    A lot of my problem is that I know exactly what I should be doing, I buy healthy foods, never buy chocolate or biscuits etc

    I just have too many 'sod it' moments when out or at other people's houses!

    I started doing ww on Saturday and have stuck to it so far, I am determined this time!

    I always used to me lovely and slim, a size 10 to 12 it was only when I was made redundant and suffered some nasty health problems thatt weight gradually crept up. The other problem is that I carry the weight very well, so don't look like a huge blob lol

    Anyway thanks for the support, will update you on Saturday morning with a couple of pound loss I hope! X
