Hi :)

I am a newbie

My name is Amanda-Jane and I have a fair amount of weight to loose :shock:

I am 28 year old SAHM with three bubs - a three year old girl, 20 month old boy and 8 week old girl.

I have a lot of trouble with emotional eating and motivation !!!!

I wanted to go on the tony furgeson diet but becuase I am breastfeeding I can't - So it looks like I am going to just try and eat healthy and exersize (well try and)

Did I also mention that I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which makes things more harder ----------

I have always been on the larger side but always in the healthy BMI. And I was always very active, then I became Sick and put at least 40kg on within a year!!!

That was about 7 years ago now and it is time for me to shift this wieght!!!!!

Hi Amanda-jane, I know how hard it can be to loose weight I have hypothoroidism and PCOS .
I also know how hard it is to get motivated when you are overweight. My starting weight was 128.3 kg ,but with hard work planning and determination, and by no means last, the support of the people on this forum I have lost nearly 25 kg.

So let us be your inspiration and soon you will be somebody elses,join in the challenges and browse around th esite there is lots of great ideas and tips...

Look forward to seeing all your great results.. Though it already sounds like your pretty busy with your three kids. I'm sure some of the other mums will give lots of good advice about the SAHM tips for exercise :D :D :D :D :D
[no excuses, I can do it!

Hi Amanda-Jane and welcome to the forum!! Anything is possible you just have to believe in yourself!! Feel free to jump into any challenges on offer to help keep you motivated!! Eating healthy and exercising is a great way to lose weight!! As you are breastfeeding make sure you check with your doctor or dietician to make sure that you are providing your body with enough nutrients to keep your bubby satisfied!! I am also a SAHM with 4 kids and there are plenty of us here!!

I wish you all the best and I am looking forward to seeing your progress!!
