Young mum trying to lose weight.

Postby mum2james » Wed Mar 28, 2007 12:42 am

Hi everyone.
My name is Stacey and i'm 20 years old.
I joined the forum a little while ago, but forgot I had done so.
I'm a mum to a beautiful 6 and a half month baby boy called James.
Up until now i've used the excuse that i've just had a baby for being over weight, but since his now getting older and I still haven't shifted any kilos, I think it's about time I did something about it. :D
This looks like a very busy forum, so I look forward to joining in some of the discussions!
All the best...
Stacey - 25 and mum to a beautiful 5 year old boy. :-)

hey stacey nice to see you here. i know what you mean about babies. i was 20 when i had my daughter and she is now 14 months old and being a stay at home mum- in between feeds, changes, sterilising bottles, cuddles, bathing, washing and cleaning i was eating crap! i could justify it by saying that we ate a good meal with vegies at night (which was true and rarely had takeaway at all) but id be skipping breakfast and eating meat pies or cheese toasted sandwiches and chocolate etc all day long. you have come to the right place to get some encouragement and support. if you need anything sing out!

hI sTACEY,
It's nice to meet you.
I am a young mum too and when I had my first baby I used to eat a few cream biscuits and coffee for breakfast while I was breastfeeding him. Call me stupid.
I've taken nearly five years (and two kids) to get to this stage so I congratulate you on doing something about it now!!!
We're all here to help.

Welcome Stacy. There are lots of young Mums on the forum, (and some not so young ones). Sing out if you have any questions, and join in when you can - I know that when you have a baby you don't ge a lot of time to yourself. You will find lots of support and information along the way.

Hi Stacy,

Welcome. When I had my first I found that it wasn't the weight I gained during pregnancy that was an issue so much as the weight I gained being a SAHM afterwards. Boredom eating is one of my biggest issues.

Good luck with your journey - can't wait to get to know you.

Hi everyone,
Wow, i'd forgotten I even joined the forum. 2 years later, i'm back. :lol:
I'm now 22 and my son is 2! And i'm still overweight. :oops:
I've joined weightwatchers and lost 16.1kgs so far. I've only got 7.5kg to go before I get to my goal weight of 70kgs.
Anyway I look forward to chatting to everyone and sharing my weightloss journey with you. :D
Stacey.
