Hi there

Hi there

I am 29 years old and a mother to 2 beautiful boys. My youngest is just 6 weeks old and that means it is time to get into the diet and excercise. I am breastfeeding and I need to lose 20 kilos, hopefully before my 30th birhday next year. Not sure how I will go this time, I have been up and down in my weight for as long as I can remember, but never 20 kilos over. I am hoping I can get it off and this time keep it off!

... and you would be setting an excellent example to your young ones, as well has improving your ability to interact with them. Wise choice!

I suppose that is not really an easy way of losing weight and keeping it off - just keep in mind the reason you are doing it, and don't be afraid to be a little bit obsessive about it. In my case I know that even when I get down to my target weight, perhaps near the end of next year, I will have to keep log of my weight on a regular basis, because I know from experience how easy it is to get off the rails.

Decide you are going to do it, make a plan with targets along the way, and then just hang in there. Stick with your plan and be patient and it will happen. :D
