jodie259 - returning to WW after pregnancy

Postby jodie259 » Fri Sep 22, 2006 12:05 pm


I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jodie & I live in Melbourne.
I have a 16 week old baby boy (my first) and I piled on weight during pregnancy.

Prior to pregnancy I was working as a helper at Weight Watchers, and was nearly 6kg within my goal weight When I rejoined WW last week I was 23.5kg from my goal weight!!! Aaaahhhhh!!!!

So now I'm back on track! I'm doing the "no count" plan as I've never been good at tracking points. I had my first weighin on Wednesday and I lost 2.2kg in the first week. I have gone back to WW as a helper - so if anyone has any WW questions, don't hesitate to ask me.

I also joined a gym because they have a creche. Normally I hate gym, but I am getting into it. I consider it "me time" now.

Looking forward to participating in this forum. I recommended a few people here.

talk soon,

Hey Jodie - good to see you on here & nice to see a name I know.

I have no doubt that you will shed the weight gained through pregnancy in no time. You were very motivated before the pregnancy and I guarantee that motivation will return.

Good luck!
