i haven't read everyones replies yet as there are so many and DS is going to be up shortly, but i will come back later and read them! i would like join in though!
I have always hovered around 60 to 67kg (and was 67kg when i fell pregnant with DS who is now 7 months). at the end of my pregnancy i weighed 85kg, and once DS was born weighed 80kg. 5 months later i was still that same 80kg, and not happy with that at all! so at the start of november i joined up to weight watchers (i am a lifetime member and it is really the only 'diet' i have ever stuck to for a long period). what i like about ww now though is the choice of 2 different plans (although they have just relaunched, the old 'core' plan where you don't have to count points and measure and weigh food is still in there if you look closely lol!!!
so anyway, since starting ww again in nov, and now doing the 'simply filling' version of the new plan, i feel that i could continue this way of eating for life. it is so easy to follow and i really recommend it to anyone that doesn't have the time or energy to be counting points and weighing food all day!!!
i have lost 4.5kg (although i have put on nearly 1kg in the last week due to having a few days off for xmas and new yr but i am back on track today!!!)
i will look forward to checking in here for motivation!
good luck everyone on your journey!
edited to say that i have lost this 4.5kg without being able to do a lot of exercise - i usually go walking but due to my weight gain i have got a heel spur which i can't walk on too much or it aggravates it and i spend the next 2 days in agony! i have orthotics now so this is getting better, so hopefully i will be able to get out and about walking a bit more! it just shows how good the ww plan is, if i can lose weight with not much exercise so far! not that i am saying that not exercising is good, i am hoping to do more soon lol!!!
