now my holiday is done thats my next job. i want to rejoin slimming world cause i do well on it and love having some one to tell how i'm doing but it always comes back on that way i'm thinking the best way maybe no counting anything just eat what i knows good for me and weigh myself once a month just to see if its working.
Me!!! I REALLY need to get back on the bus though. I've been eating bad and not working out and it just this week is slowly starting to show on the scale. I've only gained 2-3 pounds over the last several weeks, but I need to get my act together before I gain all or most of my weight back. I've worked way too hard and been far too happy and proud of myself to let old habit slide back into my life.
So far I've lost about 28 lbs. and am 12 lbs. away from my ultimate goal. I know I can get there after seeing how far I've come so quickly, I just need to push myself to get the motivation and self-control to do it! It's just not the easiest thing
I'm trying to lose weight, not just for pregnancy but because I have enough medical crap, I don't need weight-related issues too. I gained 80lbs in 3 months when I was first diagnosed with Crohn's (a combination of being too sick to do anything and massive steroid use.) I've lost about half of that so far, now I'm working on the other half. My biggest challenge has been staying healthy enough to be active.
I've been fighting the same 10-15lbs for the last couple years. From January to March, I was eating well and exercising 4-5 times a week, and nothing was happening. I finally went to see a dietitian. Now she has me cutting gluten (I have a sensitivity to it, and apparently food sensitivities can make it almost impossible to lose weight) and also watching my blood sugar spikes. When I stick to it, it works - I lost 2lbs in the first week, but it's a hard thing to do.

I am. Not for pregnancy though. I've always been small and my meds have made me gain weight. My clothes are tight and I don't feel nearly as comfortable in a bathing suit. I just want to fit in my clothes and look good for the summer!
I still have about 20 pounds to lose. I lost it all after I had ds3, but over the past 8 months, it seems to be creeping back. I ordered a few Jillian Michaels dvds and plan to start them on Monday. I don't want to start my next pregnancy with weight from my previous one.
