Hi, I'm new here, finally decided to join as I have been trying to lose weight for 2 months now and not seeing any loss.
My story is November 2009 I gave birth to my first child and was about 88kg, 78kg for my pre-pregnancy weight. I have been very lazy during winter but in October this year I decided to finally start trying to lose this weight. Then I was 86kg. I joined a gym on a 10 visit pass and went twice the first week but felt it very hard to keep up as quite unfit so decided to get some dvds instead. I bought the Hollywood Trainer CardioSculpt and have been doing that 3-4 times a week and walking 30mins 1-2 times a week. I do my exercise when my son has his daily nap which is 1-2 hours then he is up for the rest of the day.
I used to eat a lot of cake and chocolate which I've cut down a lot, and also drank a lot of coke which I hardly drink anymore, about 1-2 cans of coke a week now. So it's been 2 months now trying to budge this weight and I have only lost half a kilo which is very depressing as before I started I got it in my head that I would lose half a kilo a week. I also took measurements but they are not moving either. I just want to get rid of my big baby belly, I'm sick of tucking my fat belly into my underpants!
I am 27 now, my age might also have something to do with my slow weight loss. When I was about 23 I was 70kg and decided to lose weight, only went on a half hr walk each morning and lost half a kilo a week and got down to 65kg. But then some crap happened in my life and I gave up on the weight loss which caused my gain to 78kg before I got pregnant.
My partner doesn't help as I complain to him about not losing any weight as I just need to vent but then if we go to the shop and I pick up a Snickers bar I am made to feel like a criminal!
