Back On The Weight Loss Train

I’ve had a few people ask me why I am starting so early – I only had Olivia two weeks ago. But I weighed in last week and went and weighed in tonight as I want to get back to following the Slimming World plan 100%. I’m not in too much of a rush to lose the baby weight but I want to get back to eating healthier, tastier meals – and with Steve going back on his diet from Thursday, it is so much easier if we are on the journey together.

Last week when I weighed in I lost 11lb – this is, of course, because of Olivia, my waters and placenta. I wasn’t expecting such a loss so I was super happy and it straight away put me back down under my original starting weight again – yay! I was so gutted when I went past that in pregnancy as I felt like all my hard work had been undone but I am now 7lb (1/2 stone) from my original starting weight in November 2015 which has seen me through two pregnancies (1 non successful, 1 resulting in a birth) and lots of eating rubbish.

I haven’t been the best I could have been in the past week but I’ve had a lot going on in my life with Olivia being born, her struggles with feeding (whole new post to come soon), my father passing away (something I hadn’t yet mentioned on the blog or social media) and so much more – life has just been super tough and I’ve just been eating what I can lay my hands on. I still somehow managed to lose 2lb this week which I think is probably a combination of both breastfeeding and the stress we have been under recently.

As of Thursday, I am back on the weight loss train completely. I want to get to my goal and be able to run around after my children without worrying about being breathless. I want to be able to look in the mirror and like what I see. With Steve joining me for the journey, I am looking forward to getting those healthy meals back in and my walking back into my routine as I struggled towards the end of my pregnancy. I may start writing my weight loss diaries again – is this something you would like to see?
