Re-Starting My Weight Loss Journey


You all may already know that I am pregnant with my third baby. In 2014 I lost 3 and a half stone with Slimming World. The following year I went on my first ever holiday abroad to Thailand and I gained just under half a stone, since then I have just been gaining it slowly and now my gain is 2 and a half stone. I did start going back to my local Slimming World group around September time but I didn't feel comfortable. Nearly everyone who I had been in group with before, had gone. I guess I just felt alone - and not many people to talk to. Also, I started to feel extremely bloated. I left group and little did I know that I was pregnant with Baby.

I have been trying to loose weight from home. Some weeks I have lost, but put on the following week and it is my own fault. My so called 'cheat' days go over the top sometimes and it takes days for me to get back on plan. Going back to group has been something I have been thinking of for quite a long time since just before Christmas. But actually deciding to go back to group last Wednesday was a last minute decision. One of my close friends told me she was going back and somehow it just made me want to go back too. Just a few hours before group started, I decided yes I am going back to Slimming World!

I was nervous. I was thinking is it the right thing to do? Should I just be saving this £5 a week instead of spending it at group? All kinds of things were going on in my head. When I arrived at group, I was so glad I decided to go. There were many others who were joining the same time too and we were all given the introduction talk and a talk about the plan. Later on I was given an extra book because I am pregnant. The only thing different is I can have 2 healthy A's and 2 healthy B's which has been great for me!

I joined Slimming World (again!) at 12 weeks 3 days pregnant. I am now 13 weeks pregnant. I kind of started plan the day before I decided to go back to group and usually when I went to Slimming World group previously I always used to 'cheat' on a Wednesday evening after group but the Wednesday been I was 100% on plan, which I am really proud of!

My target to loose hopefully whilst I am pregnant or just after Baby is born is 1 stone exactly. If I can loose a bit more than that, then I will be extremely happy. After Baby is born then I will have another 5 or so stone to go until my main target - I will get there! It will be a huge achievement for me if I loose weight whilst pregnant this time round as a gained quite a fair bit with my first and second.

I am 4 days in (Sunday) and I am feeling different. I feel good. The home scales are looking good but I won't say just incase I jinx it! I haven't struggled with meals and I haven't really struggled with evenings either. I usually scoff my face in the evenings but I have been really good so far. I don't feel like eating the wrong things, I feel really motivated.

I am hoping to write a weekly weight loss journey post every Thursday to update you all and to hopefully motivate me a bit more. I am looking at baking and cooking a few different Slimming World snacks and meals to what I have done before and I will share them with you (if they go well of course!).

Have you lost weight during pregnancy?

  16. I definitely think it's doable to lose weight whilst pregnant. I dieted before my wedding in 2013. Then found out I was pregnant, honeymoon baby. So I continued to diet as I had been before my wedding at the start of my pregnancy. Once Rosalie was born, I breast fed so carried on eating healthy but also eating treats and I still lost weight. I was the slimmest I've ever been after Rosalie was born and I swear it's the breast feeding. I did it for over 12 months and didn't want to give it up as it meant I couldn't eat as much cake! Xx
