Attempting To Shed The Baby Weight

Friday, January 16, 2015

Before Christmas I decided it was time for me to start trying to shed some of this extra weight I put on when having Elsie. Now that I've finished having babies I am ready to get myself into shape and start to feel good about myself. I've decided to go with the Slim Fast diet as I like milkshakes and it gives me a bit of freedom with what I can eat. In the two weeks before Christmas I managed to loose roughly 7lb before putting a pause on my diet for between Christmas and New Year to ensure I didn't start to resent dieting watching everyone else eat what they want.

Since the New Year I have been back at it. I actually lost 1lb over Christmas without dieting but I am definitely loosing it a lot slower since the year began. I've invested in some new much better electric scales to weigh myself with and I am using the myfitnesspal app to record my weight and create a food diary so I can keep track of how much I am eating.

Although I'm not loosing as much weight as I hoped so far it is slowly dropping off and I feel so much more energised. I feel so healthy and I'm thinking of starting some kind of exercise. After three c-sections my stomach muscles have taken quite a hit and so I'm hoping to build them back up as I go. I'll try and update on here how I am getting on and share any tips I might find. 

I'd love to hear any tips you might have in the comments below?!
