    My plan of attack is to cut down my portion sizes, stop snacking on crap and get to the gym 5 days a week.

    The secret to weight loss is as easy as burning less calories than you consume. You can't train off a bad diet. I never eat carbs in the evening. My biggest meal is breakfast. I walk for 45 minutes everyday. I eat meat for breakfast with nuts, a nice sized lunch and an even smaller dinner. If you're going to the gym you should concentrate on heavy weights not small 2kg ones. You should always have a protein shake, one with fat burner properties. I could go on and on but by doing this I lost 5.8kg in 8 days last month. Muscle weighs more than fat also, if you really wish to make a change to your diet you should take before and after photos as this is a better indication of what you look like, kg mean nothing. Pm me if you need support. Good luck

    I'm still breastfeeding so I still need to make sure I'm getting enough to keep my milk supply up. I know I eat well when I concentrate on it, my nutrition is spot on but my self control is not.

    I have to say I will not drink those protein shakes crap, they're just full of chemical crap, I only eat real food.

    .
    I am in the same boat! I am BFing a 6 mo old and want to ensure my supply isnt compromised but really need to shift 10kgs.

    I am finding it very hard to get out and exercise as I have 2 boys plus a home business and I just cant find the time.

    I dont eat as well as I could as its mostly finding something I inhale before bubs wakes or eating one handed while working, etc.

    Love to join so if you have tips I am all ears!

    I will join! I have 5-7 to lose.
    For me wine is evil! Why oh why does it have to have calories... Life is not fair.
    I'm on about 1500 cals a day. It works ( when I stick to it)
    And I have the same old story "battling with the same 5kg"
    I have started working out more. On Wednesday I walked 1.5 hours and yesterday I did an hour. Today I'm feeling super lazy. I have to force myself to at least go for a 30 min walk.

    Hmmm... Bit dubious about this post!! I agree that calories in vs calories out is a consideration but there are many other factors also. And honestly, losing 5.8kg in 8 days is unhealthy at best. Large weights are not for those who have never done weights before either!! Also protein shakes aren't the way unless you cant get enough protein from wholefoods.

    This must be the fast track to injuring yourself and harming your health.

    I'll join you all!

    I gained 20kg in pregnancy and so far at 8 weeks post partum I have lost 13kg so have 7 left. I am only looking to lose 5kg though

    My main goal is to get back to being toned... I feel really flabby more than anything.

    So far I have been walking everyday and have had DD in the Ergo for most of the day (even for the walks). I have also been loosely watching what I eat but am not too strict on myself. I just don't eat fast foods and eat sweets in moderation.

    We have holidays in Byron Bay in September and Hawaii in December so I really want to be fit and in shape by the end of winter.
