babyla which resources are you using? Do you exercise?
With a bub on the way I'm not on a diet ATM. Just eating healthy and following preggo guidelines for food safety.
After bub is born ill prob go back on fernwood diet, need to lose about 20 kgs, which would take me to goal weight of 70!
Hard to say what diet...just generally healthy. ' Not eating crap ' diet e.g porridge n fruit or eggs on toast for breakfast, chickpea patties or lean protein n veggies for lunch, then vegetables and lean protein for dinner. wholemeal pasta or brown rice only twice a week . Generally trying to eat more veg and protein everyday..less pasta and rice!
start weight ( before birth) was 100.5kg
Current weight (5 wks after birth) 88kg
Goal weight ( same as before pregnant) 75kg
Lost 12.5kg ....13kg to go !
(although about 6-7kg i lost after birth was fluid and bub im sure, cos it fell of in the first week !

I have recently downloaded the My fitness pal app from iTunes. As crazy as this sounds this app could be life changing for me! All you do is type in day by day what you have eaten or if its a packaged food (ie yoghurt) you just scan the bar code with your phone and boom there it is before your eyes a running tally of calories, protein etc.. It also gives you a calorie allowance based on your weight, height, sex and how much you wish to loose and as you add your food intake it calculates everything and also you can add excercise and it will work out calories you will burn etc. it has been awesome as everyday I can now track my calorie intake, how much calcium, iron and certain minerals I have consumed it also tracks fat, carbs, cholesterol,sugar and sodium intake. One of the biggest things I have noticed is I am not taking in enough calcium and iron so I am working on improving that. Oh and best part is the app is absolutely free!!!! I highly recommend downloading the app as it really offers accountability and it is such an easy way to calorie count.
My goal is 70kg (currently 90kg); my pre-pregnancy was 87kg. I've been overweight for so long and I've had enough. DD is almost 10mths and i'm still breastfeeding; back at work 2days/wk so hopefully keeping busy and active at work and not having too much time running around with the kids will help.
I've just started having my dinner for lunch the next day and having a diet shake for breakfast and dinner with 2 pieces of fruit and crackers/avo/cheese or another snack. This is just a kickstart and literally started 2days ago.
I'm down to 69.4 yay.. my goal weight was 70kgs.. but I would love to lose a few more. going to treat myself with a spray tan this arvo. hehe.
Not on a diet yet but I do have approx 20-30 kgs to lose. Ive decided I'm going to start off by lowering portions and making healthier decisions. I wont totally deprive myself of anything but will make a concious effort to make a better choice most of the time. I know myself and if I jump into this too fast I know it wont be long before I give up...I will go in being positive if I ease myself into a healthier lifestyle. Once I recover from having DS2 I will also start walking with them in the pram to at least get my body back into exercising. Once that happens lots of Wii fit at home aswell!
I will also be using the my fitness pal app on my phone as Ive heard it is pretty awesome at keeping track of everything
