Hi Soni,

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your baby :P

I guess the first piece of advice is - you need to really, really want this. It's a matter of will-power and A LOT of hard work. You'll find lots of lovely people, helpful hints and motivation here as a start though.

Good luck!

Hello Soni and welcome to the forum!
A good way to start is to change just one or perhaps 2 things. Maybe start doing some gentle exercise every day and say, changing something unhealthy in your diet for something helthier. Then as you get used to the changes you can add more, that way you won't get overwhelmed with too much change.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

I suggest the first thing you do is to see a doctor. Often they can help you with where to start, and what to do...maybe they could also refer you to a nutritionist?

Hi Soni - welcome aboard. People have already posted some great advice.

In the words of Nike - just do it! One day, one small change at a time. Good luck and let us know how you're going...
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Healthy food doesn't have to be bland food!! That is definitely one thing I've learnt since being on my weightloss journey. There are heaps of recipes out there that are very low on calories but still taste fantastic.

There are low-fat recipes for carbonara, lasagne, satay, moussaka and the list goes on.

I think there is a recipe section here on the forum, if not, drop me a pm with your email address, I have a word document full of heaps of delicious, low-fat recipes. I bet if you cook one for your hubby one night, he won't even know it's low-fat and good for you!! :wink:

Plus think of the health benefits he'll be receiving too by eating healthier with you.
Cheers,
Kate
