Hi Cherubs3, It's great having you here on the forum.
I also gained my weight the same way, after each of my 3 kids I had a little more weight to lose but always got to my goal so that I could fit into my bikini for summer.
I guess the only advice I can share is that you will get there slowly but surely if you cut out the fats, force yourself to exercise and drink more than you eat.

Hi, nice to meet you - I'm Hayley.

You'll find it really beneficial being a member of this forum. The people here are all so supportive and are all experiencing similar things, which really does help.

I only have one child and I find it hard losing the weight I gained from having him (although I had him 2.5 years ago!). I weigh 88.5kg and am hoping to get down to 67 -68 kg. I put on 24 kilos when I had Connor!

I don't really have any good advice as yet, as I'm only just starting, myself but I know that many others will reply with helpful hints for you.

Just try to stay positive and don't get yourself down - you will be able to reach your goal weight, slow and steady wins the race!

Cheers, Hayley.

Hi Cherubs3,
Welcome on board! There are a whole range of things on this site that may help and exercise diaries, weight loss challenges, support and just being able to share your experiences with other sympathetic people. I hope to see you around!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
