Firstly, thanks so much BH and Healthy Mummy for choosing me!
A bit of background - I have constantly battled with my weight. I think the real issues started when I met my now DH when I was 15. Having a boyfriend with a car meant no more walking to school, and lots of late night krispy kream and maccas runs! By the time I was 18 I had gained 30kgs.
Before our wedding I went on duromine to lose the weight, going from 94kgs down to 64kgs in about 6 months. Once my doctor stopped prescribing it to me I got friends to get it, bought it from others....I was addicted. It took DH leaving me for me to get off it, and the weight gain started again. When I fell pregnant with my DD I was about 70kgs, ballooned to 90kg while pregnant. When she was 1 I went on a seriously strict diet and got back down to 68kgs, but I was starving myself, living on around 800 calories a day while breastfeeding....not healthy at all.
And once again, when I stopped that diet I gained it all back SO this healthy mummy challenge is not going to be one of those crash diets. It is going to teach me how eating healthy can still be delicious and fun. Looking through the recipes I am very impressed already!
I'll check back in tomorrow with my menu for the day!
