    Im feeling quite down these past couple of days!!

    I have what feels like constant headaches! Which is prob due to my bp (which I had blood tests for)!! STILL my shoes are not fitting me... my trainers kill me after 30 minutes at the gym! My water retention is still bad to the point of when I get out of bed and have been resting thim I struggle to walk the first few steps!

    I hate the way Im looking... I know my diet is heading in the right direction but Im hating it! Im still huge compared to how I was before!! I brought size 18 jeans the other day :cry: I hate it! I dont feel comfortable, hence I dont enjoy social events etc!! And all I want to do is eat junk and I HATE that I cant enjoy a day of bingeing anymore!! :cry:

    With no idea of when Im going to get financially stable I cant even look forward to a family holiday next year which I really wanted to do!!

    Ill prob feel better next week but I just needed to just have this rant.... !!

    Ive read a few of your threads and seen photos of you and your gorgeous little girl and i must say whatever you feel about your weight you are beautiful. You have coped so amazingly well with all that the pregnancy and afterwards has thrown at you. you should be so proud of yourself! I must also add you must have lost more weight than you think because im the same height as you and weigh 12 stone something and cant fit in a 16 yet. When you feel down just look at you daughters face and remember what its all about. Believe me it does and will get better lots of love xx

    Bit random but when I was in the chemist today, I saw that they sold 'skinny water' apparently it contains something that suppreses the craving for sweet things and naturally aids weight loss. Im going to try some but sounds too good to be true! By the way try weighing yourself after your af finishes bet you lost loads of water! xx

    OMG I love it... make chocolate make me slim!! If only ey lol!!

    I feel really bad cos I keep stressing at my mum... like really badly snapping!!

    For instance at the gym today I was on treadmill and complained of my feet!! She said "try something else" I reply which I still kinda stand by but probably shouldnt have said it the way I did "well what can I do in a bloody gym without using my feet!?!" I snapped at her quite a bit yesterday too!! :blush:

    Oooh sounds interesting!! I have been ok though... but now the :witch: has got me bad and making me want to eat loads!!

    Just had 4 caramel rice cakes for 2 and a half points and now I want more food!! No more points left :cry: But I want some toast or something!!

    I was very surprised that I had lost 3 and a half pound last week considering I was on Af for a whole week!! Fingers crossed for this week :)

    Kerry I hope you start feeling better soon. Its crap that they can't figure out why you're still retaining water. Did I read that you were on pills for it?? Maybe consult another doctor.

    I've seen pics of you and your little girl on facebook and you ARE beautiful :hugs: Cheer up, tomorrow will be so much better. Plus once you get off your dumb period I'm sure you'll feel so much better!!

    Aww Kerry, hope your feeling more positive today? I know exactly how you feel, pre pregnancy i was a size 12-14 and now im in a 16-18 but ive only retained 1 stone?!!! not sure how that works out, but ita all gone on me hips,bum and tum!!!
    You will lose the weight so try not to stress too much about it. Everytime you feel down just look at courtney and think its for her (remind her in afew years when she understands!) You and her are both beautiful, irrelevant of the size you are.

    Im still carrying a bit of water especially in my legs still. my feet and knees are also agony all day...i cannot even kneel now. I had xrays the other day on my knees to see whats happening but aside from that the dr was pretty clueless.
    I might try drinking lots more water as if you dont drink enough which i know i dont your body can hold onto the water.
    Also gonna try water with lemon juice in it...my sis said thats helps with swelling and weightloss too
    xxxxx hang in there hun you will get there.
    I went from 18 stone to just 16 stone after birth...i put on 5 in total and am still 16 no matter what i do but my shape is improving xxxxx
