new mum can't shift 10KGs HELP

Postby newmumtroubles » Mon Dec 08, 2008 4:29 pm

Hi All,

I have a gorgeous 8 month old girl and am really happy....BUT can't shift the 10kgs I put on... any suggestions .. I need somewhere where I am accountable but really don't want to do Weight watchers... the thing is in the past I use to do shakes, those quick fix pills, or just live on Diet coke and tuna.. but what I really want to do is change the way I eat - eat slow, eat like a thin person... and this is all a good idea until I realise I have just scoffed down my next meal!!!

HELP

Weight watchers is one of the most successful weightloss programs out there!

Just curious to know why you don't like them?

The best way I found to stop scoffing down my meals is to eat when I am feeding my son. By 8 or 9 months he started having normal meal times so at dinner I would give him a mouthfull then have one myself, then i was forced to put down my knife and fork to give him some more. This worked really well for me and so by the time he started feeding himself i had developed the habbit and now eat slowly every meal.
What are you problem areas? is it food or exercise- how much exercise are you doing at the moment? Going for a walk with a baby is easy, just put her in the pram and off you go. My son loves our walk as there is plenty for him to see. BTW, he is now 16 months old.

Sorry.. nothing wrong with weight watchers apart from my own shyness... it works well as it keeps you accountable... just looking for a more 'private' way of getting the same support i guess...

thanks for suggestion on eating.. will definitely try :-)

ah ok cool. Have you heard about Calorie King? Its a website that you sign up for free and you can keep track of your daily calories etc. Its really good. I used it when I was in Australia and it worked really well.

I am going to use it here too but its not free in the US so I am waiting.
