Before I had my little girl I probably weighed around 9 stone 10, 18 months on I now weigh 11 stone and I am struggling to lose the weight. I thought once I had had Heidi the weight would drop off, but no. I see other people who have had baby’s and they are back in there skinny jeans a few months later, why aren’t I, I would ask myself.
I remember going to see the nurse for my 6 week post baby check-up and getting on the scales only to hear her say, you are overweight. I was in complete shock; I had only just had a baby. I just wanted to run out of there and cry. I spoke to my partner who reassured me I wasn’t overweight and that I had only just had a baby so not to worry. But who wouldn’t worry, I think most women worry over their weight on a daily basis.
I made it my mission to lose weight, i started eating less and healthier and walking everywhere i went with the pram – daily. I must’ve lost a bit of weight because people would comment saying I looked like i had lost weight and thinner in the face – did my face look fat before?
I started to feel a bit more confident in myself and even dared to wear a 2 piece outfit. Which brought compliments from my other half *Smiling to myself*
Once I went back to work after my maternity leave that’s when the weight creeped back on and the afternoon trips to the shop for chocolate started. There was no more daily walks just stuck sat behind a computer screen. Sitting pretty now at 11 stone I just hate the way I look and want the confidence to return.
So I have decided April is going to be the kickstart of my healthy eating, getting healthy. I am going to tackle this head on and keep you all updated because I think that will make me more determined if I write it down. The below picture was taken of me 4 years ago and this is the weight/body shape I want to get back to.
