I am joining this forum in the hope that I can get the motivation and advice i need. I hope in turn i can help others too.
i am 26 y.o. Ive always had to watch what i eat and exercise to maintain my weight. Since Ive been married, Ive put on a few kilos which I wasnt too concerned about, as I had always been up and down, but since having my first baby 11 weeks ago, Ive ballooned out to 85 kilos. Im quite short too, 164cm.
I wouldnt be as worried if it was just baby fat but the fact is i have actually put on weight since giving birth. I have not been eating properly, skipping meals or grabbing rubbish here and there. My baby, although just beautiful has bad reflux and colic. She is a lot of work and I have no time to exercise. I have recently started putting her in the pram and going for a 5km walk each morning. I have lost my first kilo doing this.
My problem is I have no motivation at the moment and am very depressed about my weight.I keep sabotaging myself. I feel like I am just always going to be big now, and only going to get bigger.
I appreciate any advice anyone has. I feel like just getting my feelings out, and seeing my ticker with the figure I need to lose will help me a lot.
