    Like PPs said, it's mostly diet. I put on 21kg with DD and was back to pre pregnancy weight at 6 months. As soon as I started to reduce portion sizes and be careful with what I ate the weight fell off. You can exercise all you like, but if you're eating too much the weight won't budge.

    Yup, I'm on the same boat!! I was 64kg gained 26kg, I am now 74kg 6 months later, been at 74kg for 2 months!!! I don't exercise much but I'm breastfeeding and eating healthy. I went to Pilates yesterday realy feeling it this morning.
    Maybe try a different exercise regime, like yoga or Pilates?

    Thanks yeh im getting into more cardiovascular now so hoping that will help.
    As much as im so wanting to lose this weight i can't cut out my chocolate. i eat a range of foods and not a huge amount.. so i think maybe i needed some more full on cardio to melt the fat...
    Im sure a dietician will tell me to eat more salad and veges so i don't wanna pay to be told that. i home the cardio helps and if not then i will slowly cut back on the crap stuff

    tbh dietitians are a waste of money IMO for general weight loss....most ppl know what to eat, i mean if u really live in a bubble and have no idea then ok but otherwise i personally feel psychological factors play a big part in not losing weight eg food addictions, emotional eating , finding and sustaining motiavtion, being honest about what u are eating etc.i saw one and the ONLY useful info she gave me was to have a chocolate So Good instead of a choc (when i was pg so of course i did that but at the choc still as well LOL). i understand the choc thing..but i havent had a chocolate for almost 5 days and was an ADDICT so this is a miracle aka would feel anxious if i didnt have it in house, denial about how much i ate etc..i swaer my clothes are looser already...if i was honest i thought my diet was not "that bad" but actually i was regularly eating cakes, biscuits and ice cream daily....and probably going thru drive thru about twice a week as well....im not someone that can eat a little bit of dark choc (yuk) a day as many have suggested ..im better to eat none cos as soon as i taste it my brain craves more....anyway i hope i can sustain the motivation..i find that seeing as i was told i had a health problem its a lot easier to say no to bad things..so mmmmm. good luck.

    What u said was so true. i do have a problem with choc . actually think about it many times a day. like today and yesterday i had no choc cuz i know its probably holding me back. but all day i have thought about going for a walk to the deli to get some!

    How have you been strong? I was going to go buy some vitamins u know the ones that curb sugar cravings..

    Augh now im craving it just talking about it
