    I eat healthy. Err. That's it. I don't do any particular diet controlled thing. I still enjoy a piece of chocolate/cake/cookie and a glass of coke/frozen pizza when I want to.
    I'm currently 26 weeks pregnant and I've only gained 7kgs so I'm a whole 77kgs. I was slightly overweight when I got pregnant, and my exercise has been reduced dramatically due to joint issues that were made worse when I got pregnant.
    But I found that if I make sure the majority of my meals were healthy, and I had a few "occasion" meals and made sure I snacked during the day I stayed at a constant healthy weight. I also wasn't overweight in the bigger sense. It was mostly muscle with a tiny little podge on my belly. I also used to exercise heaps. I walked a lot and was starting to run again and I'm going to start swimming after bub's born, along with going back to running and tai-chi.

    Active and healthy eating with portion control. And reminding my brain that no, just because my tummy thought it was hungry I was actually just really bored so bugger off.

    I find BMI indicators don't always take into account muscle Vs fat and boob size and things like that!

    It told me I needed to weigh 49kgs to be healthy, I'm 154cm, pre preggo I weighed 53 and was a size 8 in jeans and 6 in tops (when boobs would allow it) and now I'm 55kgs and 4 months and could still squeeze into my size 8s, they're just not comfy!

    Having your own personal goal and being reasonable about it is good. I knew I always wanted to weigh in the lowish 50's but never dreamed it would only take me 6 months to shred 23kgs without doing anything extreme.

    Default Tell me what diet you're on....

    I'm currently counting calories. I have previously tried WW, Michelle Bridges while breastfeeding and Optislim. I liked WW but my fave is Michelle Bridges. Optislim was a crock for me.

    I found Michelle Bridges just makes sense to me. Eat less, move more. I now use the My Fitness Pal app and track calories when I need to. With MB I went from 85kgs post pregnancy to 65kgs in 5 months. I've crept up to 68kgs so I'm back into counting calories again. I'm running a half marathon in October and I'd like to be at 64kgs for that so I'm schlepping around a lighter body. I'm 171cms and 64-66kgs for me is smack bang in the middle of my "healthy" weight range and keeps me in a size 10. I find anything below 63kgs I look sick and anything above 69kgs I just feel uncomfortable. My weakness is sugar and chocolate. Also, I fell into the trap of thinking that because I run a fair bit that I can eat whatever I want. I can't. Especially now that DS2 has weaned. I'm currently on 1200 calories a day and expect to get to 64kgs by the end of the month. After that I'll ease up on weekends but still count during the week. That works best for me.

    I agree that bmi only takes height and weight into account, and discounts other factors.

    According to the BMI calculator, at your height, you could weigh 59kg and still be in the healthy weight range.

    I've actually found the BMI calculation pretty accurate. Obviously it doesn't suit everyone, but then I think as a population we've gotten used to people being larger. We have come to sort of accept larger as being more normal.

    My BMI is apparently 20.1 and I'd say it's about right. It was more like 24-25 just after I'd had DD and I reckon I was too fat.

    I'm 163cm tall and at 63kg I looked pregnant, people were asking me when I'm due! but I was a size 12, but not healthy (for me). I'm at my healthiest now at 53kg. I'll probably start putting weight on soon because I imagine I'll start building up muscle tone (which is why BMI is a load of poo coz it doesn't account for muscle vs fat etc, annnyway).
    Cutting out coke was a massive step for me but the weight just dropped off.

    I just wish one could lose weight without exercising and without cutting out chocolate. It is SO unfair.

    I'm back on the Cohens Lifestyle diet and in 5 weeks i have lost 11 kilos. I hope to be at goal weight (65 kilos) by Christmas so we can start working on baby number 2.
    It's a lifestyle change & I'm determined to stick to it this time. No looking back!

    I'm 56kg and trying to lose 10kg. I did low carb for a week and lost 3kg quickly but then lost track and gained all back. After a bit of research, I've decided to go Paleo-ish. So gluten free, grain free, sugar free, organic veg, fruit, grass fed meat.. Even if i don't lose weight on this, at least we eat healthier.
