hi :) new mum starting weightloss journey

Postby Eccentricity » Sun Jun 20, 2010 8:28 pm

Hi everyone. I'm a 21 year old new mum from Melbourne starting my weightloss journey. I am 30+ kgs overweight at 110.1kgs.
At the moment I am using meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch as well as healthy snacks and dinner. I'm doing this to hopefully train my stomach so it doesnt need to be overfull all the time! Today is my second day. I'm looking forward to seeing some results!

Hi There

I'm a new mum too, I'm 27 and live in Brisbane. Also looking to loose weight. Would love to know how you're getting on and any tips you can offer. I'm finding it particulary hard to exercise and look after a baby at the same time!

Hi New mum,
Congrats. If I may can I give you one big tip re weight loss? Throw those meal shakes OUT! They do not teach you healthy eating at all. Yes you will lose a stack of weight on them, but as soon as you stop you will pile the weight back on and more! I put on 20 kg with all my three kids but lost it after every single one by WALKING an hour every day, with the pram. Easy to do. Weight loss is a simple equation of eating less than your body needs.
Good luck!
