Hey, my names Heidi and I am trying to lose 10 kg of post baby weight (3 years later :D )

Finally found somewhere that you can feel comfortable talking about yourself and have support by others...

I'm a stay at home mum who runs a playgroup and does kick boxing 5 days a week. Haven't lost anything for weeks, think i am building muscle.

Anyhow, pop in and say hi, I like meeting new people.

Thanks for all the great welcomes guys...

I reckon the post baby weight is real hard to drop lol

I went through depression 3 times and lost so much weight, but it wasn't the right way to go about it. It was very unhealthy. Then i gained weight, but a little too much cause i got comfortable in my relationship.

:D

Heidi I know we say this a lot on here but maybe try measuring yourself as well so that the scales aren't the only thing you are going off. Not sure if you are doing this already but measure things like waist, hips, chest that sort of thing. How your clothes feel and body fat % are more things you can do. I find by doing that if I don't see a movement or much of one on the scales I sometimes see it someplace else.

If all else fails be assured that the kickboxing is definitely improving your overall health. Also are you able to vary your exercise, kickboxing is fantastic but your body may be getting used to it and adapting to the exercise. Are you able to add in something else even walking. Where do you do kickboxing? Are there other classes available too. Just a thought. Good luck and let us know how you go. :D

Yeah I am measuring myself also. Went to the doctor today and he said it will start falling off soon otherwise we have a problem... In other words, too much muscle building rather than weightloss. It really stuffs me and I eat well and try to walk whenever I can.

I guess I'm just anxious to see the weight lossl, I'll give it a few more weeks like the doctor said and see how I go.

But thanx for the heads up :D

Generally speaking, to build that sort of muscle you need to be eating more than you are expending. Maybe look at your portion size. However, if you are eating less fuel than you are expending then yeah you should start to see some losses soon. It's good that you're working through it with your doc too as then you can check out all avenues.

Keep at it and whatever you do don't give up you seem to be on the right track. :D
