weight loss journey begins again

So I have just been given the all clear to start my weight loss journey as long as for a while I don't do high-impact work-outs on my abdominal as I still haven't fully recovered in that area from the section. I am so excited and I'm also proud of myself as since having the twins back in July I have already reduced down with-out even trying to a size 16. I bought myself 4 pairs of trousers the other day as something to stimuate me with the weight-loss once I got the all clear and I'm glad I got them as I got fed-up yesterday pullin gmy trousers up as they were falling down. When the twins were born I weighed 90KG and it is almost almost 6 weeks later and I am down to 85kg. I am hoping to keep the loss going, I am going ot join my local gym and go there 2-3 times a week go swimming once a week, power-walk 3 miles a day and jog 3 miles 5 days a week. The power-walking and jogging will be while pushing a push-chair which will keep EJ happy as he loves going fast in his pushchair. I was also going ot be going on my wii everyday but I am selling that as I think having that will make me lazy when it comes down to going to the gym or going for my jog or power walk but if it doesn't sell then I will set it back up for the winter as I have problems with chest infections in the winter so have to stay in th ewarmth of the house a smuch as possible to prevent getting infections

Thank you stacy B slimming world and weight-watchers wont take me because of my history of eating disorders I can't follow any strict diet. It's just healthy eating and exercising for me although I would love to join to a slimmers group I keep thinking I should neglect to meantion the eating disorders from the past but I only got the medical all clear a year ago from them and I do still sometimes get feel the way I did while in recovery so I don't think I am fully mentally clear from them and I don't think I will ever be

I joined a scheme that my chemist runs back on Monday it is called weight management, you have fortnightly check ups and you can go in weekly to be weighed. They gave me a pedometer and adviced me to work on my meals as I ma having to many carbs before bed. I have got to eat all my carbs dueing the day an dat night just have somethng light and filling like a thick soup. They said lentils is a good one to add to soups to make them thick and creamy. I have been doing this and I am noticing a difference in the way I am sleeping, I seem ot be sleeping better and when I wake in the moring I don't have terrible stomach ache and feeling ravenours. I used to have to have a glass of fruit juice in the night just to releive the hunger pains but know I haven't had them for 2 days. I have noticed a reduction on my stomach as well and my new clothes are already starting to get baggy but as long as they aren't falling off my hips I'm goign to avoid buying more clothing until I have too.

2 days to go until weigh day again. I am so scared, I had a terrible week last week and had to live on 3 days worth of quick to grab hospital food from the shop or cafe and then for the last 2 days I have been snacking more than anything else because of the way EJ has been but today I found the reason for him being so grizzley and grumpy and for the fever he has he has cut his first second molar only 3 more to go and teething is finally over for him. AF was due today and no sign fo that. I don't even have any of my normal symptoms which is scaring me to death. I am never late unless there is a very good reason. Stress just brings it early so I have everything crossed that the first time I did the dead hasn't left me expecting a bundle as I'm not emotional ready for that again even though me and hubbie would love more children. I want to be 100% emotional, mentally and physically healthy before we even start TTCing again. But I guess things will be how they will be when the time is right even if it doesn't feel right. If AF still hasn't made a sign this time next week then I will do a test on the next Monday. I will give myself another 9 days I think that shoul dbe long enough to wait and get my head sorted for the possibility of testing i nothing happens and that will also mean an end of my weight-loss journey. This happened with RB and LC I court with them with in 2 months of a miscarriage so I do know it does happen on the first time after grieving

Weigh has been canceled today just because of AF starting this morning. They have told me to come back on Wednesday and they will do my wieght then. They have also adviced me to mark by food diary with a red mark of some sort to indicate the days that I have bleed. I feel so horrid and in so much pain

Another kilogram down 10 more to go before I meet my first target of 75kg. Then I will have a 2 week brake and start again to loss another 15kg. I can't believe how the weight is coming off this tiem around. I have never lost this much weight in 2 months. I just hope I can continue to loss it at the rate I am and keep it off

I can't believe it I was weighed againtoday and another KG down, so I only have 9 more to go before I hit my first target. Ihope the 3 oat biscuits I had earlier with my first cup of coffe in days does turn things up-side down. I feel full of energy and load sof life. Going to the gym tonight for a bums, tum and thighs session as long as the asthma lets me. Thathas gone out of control at the moment as well and I have had to re-start taking my steroid inhaler but hopefully once the winter is over and it is back under-control I can come off the steriods again. I hate winter the cold always without a fail affects my asthma why can't it be spring all year round then I would never have to take steriods again

I ma so frustrated I haven't lost any weight since the last up-date. I don't know why as my size 16's are feeling a lot losser. I am beginning ot think that I am just going to get smaller in clothes size and not in weight. I must be turning the fat into muscle and that does weigh more than fat. But if it is this then how as the only lifting I am doing is picking up my EJ and supporting LC in the night to the toilet and rolling her in her sleep when she needs creaming. Unless the miles I walk every-day are also working on th emuscle I just don't know what else it could be

Moine is my kids and my up-coming vowl renewal. Set yoursefl and easy target first like loss a few pounds by the end of the month and once you do that you will be so great. I also treatmysefl for every 5KG I loss. I get to go out and have a night out on the town and not think about calories and then start again for the next 5KG which is about 10lbs. Th eonly off putting thing is when nothing seems to be happening but you know something is happening. I also forget about the journey on special days like next Monday when it my LC's 5th birthday I will forget about healthy eating as I am cooking her, her favourite dinner and pudding. We will be having pizza, chips and mushy-peas followed by stickly toffee pudding and chocolate custard washed down with a pineapple and banana smoothie. And then on the 14th we are having her official birthday party so diet goes out the window for that too but other than that I eat healthy. Instead of chocolate I swope it for something else like banana, raisans or cucumber. If I am crazing chocolate then I have 1 square that is sat in a tube in the freezer and just suck onit and that lasts me for a quiet a while. It was the lady I see who told me this trick and it works. Also I have found that changing th eway and times I eat have helped alot. I have either oatabixs or porridge and not that instant stuff proper porridge you have to cook on the hob and a slice of whole-meal toast with cheese-spread on instead of butter and then I have a hot meal at lunch time and then at night I just have a thick soup or salad no carbs at night and I will then have a milky drink like horlix, cocoa or malted milk with 2 biscuits at 8 once the kids are in bed and that does me until 7 the next morning. Also between breakfast and lunch and again between lunch and dinner I will have a snack which will either be a piece of fruit or go-a-head biscuit or a piece of cake which Ihave made with a banana instead of sugar. I have also changed my milk to soya instead of cows and that has helped me a lot too.
