New Year New Me?

I have always struggled with my weight and the way I look. I’ve always felt ‘fat’ even when I was a 8st 15year old wearing a size 6-8 clothes. Obviously that is not big at all, and I remained that size until I met P (yep, he can take the blame!).

A year after we met I quit smoking and piled on 2stone in a year. I started going to the gym and hired a personal trainer to keep me motivated. I had managed to lose a stone and was down to a comfy size 10!! Then I fell pregnant!My first pregnancy saw a huge 4stone weight gain! After I had popped out my 7lb 5oz baby, I found that I had only lost 1st in weight. My weight has been a bit like a yo-yo since then and I have never managed to get past the 11st mark.

I feel that now Z is 4months old, will soon be weaning and decreasing his feed from me, that I can start the process of losing weight.

My goals aren’t excessive, and I know I will (probably) never get back in to a size 8! A 10 would be amazing, but I would be happy with a comfy 12 (for now).

I’m really laying myself on the line here and hoping that my writing all this down would give me the motivation to continue.

So here are my goals:

10% Goal: 10st 7lbs (147lbs)
Overall Goal: 9st (126lbs)
TOTAL Target Weight Loss: 2st 10lb (38lbs)

And here are my stats:

Height: 5ft 4″
Weight: 11st 10lb (164lbs)
BMI: 28.2
Size: 14 (with a bit of a squeeze)

I aim to lose about 2lb per week.
Total weeks to reach 10% weight loss goal at 2lb per week = 19 weeks.

I’m planning to lose the weight by myself using control and sensible eating.

I have the Change 4Life recipe app on my iPhone, and will be keeping track with the My Fitness Pal app. I also have the ’30 Day Shred’ DVD to help with exercise.

I need to lose this weight & hopefully you lot can give me a shove if I start slacking!!
