I'd love to join too ladies
Starting weight 76kg, want to get back to 70kg firstly (pre-baby). Second goal will be 65kg (pre-PCOS) if possible.
I've started using the MyFitnessPal thanks to your recommendations and I love it! The scan option is fantastic. I have manually adjusted my calories to 1500 though as I'm still b/f - is this about right? I found I was constantly starving on the 1200.
Good luck everyone

On top of that you are B/f which is another 350-500 cals.
Then if you are working out lets give it another 300 cals (not a huge work out)
So in order for you to maintain your body needs let's say 2700 cals.
In order to lose weight at about 0.5kg to 1kg you body needs a 500.-1000 cal deficit
So I would not recommend you eat below 1800 cals a day especially which B/f.
Your health and the health of your baby are more important the losing an extra .025 kg a week.
Please note these are just very basic figures. I firmly believe that you will lose weight on 1800 cals a week. It might just not happen super fast.

Popping in to see how everyone is going?
I've just got back from gym, did 25min of running and then a huge weight session. AF arrived in full force this morning, such a pain in the a$$ but I am glad in a way, as when I weigh myself Monday I shouldn't be feeling heavier or have bloating from AF, probably why I only lost 100g last week.

M&M's are officially all gone! no more junk food at work and none left at home either so i am back on track!
Pesca you'll find that whatever exercise you do add's more to the calories you're allowed to consume ie if you have your calorie intake set at 1500 if you burn off 300 calories exercise then you're allowed 1800 calories that day. i hope this makes sense. I think a lot of it comes down to the individual, whether you have a good or bad metabolism etc.
last year (i can't believe i can say that now!) i did 2 weeks on a 1000 calorie per day diet to kick start my weight loss then upped it to 1200. my metabolism is so slow though so i can't afford to do 1500 calories a day. i havent started calorie counting this time around, and not sure if i will, but if i'm really struggling to lose weight then i probably will to make sure i'm on track.

Going well here, I've had a few slip ups with chocolate here and there though. Lol whoops
But still losing! Weighed myself again today, couldn't resist. Almost another half a kg down. it's excellent and keeping me motivated so why do I feel the need for chocolate here and there still :|
Hope you're all still doing well!!
