I've been doing a 'fit balls' exercise video at home. I know it doesnt help with the weight but it is certainly helping me get back into some of my clothes. I know it sounds quite boring but it is something that i can fit in around the baby sleeping or playing. When he is awake, he spends the first fifteen minutes laughing at me and the shiney ball moving around. - I was'nt prepared for all the extra 'jelly-flesh'. So its making me feel better even if the scales is not.
after having my second baby i lost lots of confidence, i hated the way i looked hated my body. i took a massive hump and joinned a gym.it took me ages to join as like you i get nervous and i'm shy. i go twice a week and the benifits have been great not just for my body but my mind too.i havent lost a massive lot of weight its coming off slowly. i eat healthly at home(buut not over x-mas) i dont indulge like i used to i dont buy crisps or chocs any more. how i see it if its not there i cant eat it.
My daughter has just turned 3 and Im feeling more motivated that ever to lose the xtra baby weight... shes not really a baby anymore and I really want to have another but want to lose some weight first.
I also have another incentive... my sister is getting married in September and dont want to be a fat and frumpy matron of honour!!
I put on 4 stone when pregnant with my daughter and lost about 3 stone after the birth in the first year,,,, but another stone has crept back on again... I started eating well and being more active a few weeks ago and have already lost 5lb.... i also did the Race for LIfe 5km on Sunday and felt so good afterwards that Im thinking of doing more walking/jogging/running...
Sorry for the long post... but i though maybe we could update each other as to how we are doing weekly or something?
