So I have done it. I have rejoined slimming world this week in a bid to try and lose my baby weight pre-holiday to Turkey in June. I know it may seem quite early post-baby to be joining (less than 4 weeks postpartum!) but I know what I am like and I am likely to procrastinate and put it off.

I joined slimming g world previously 3 months after Hayden was born, and I was pleased with the weight loss I achieved. I lost 1 stone gradually over the 4 months I was going for. Not a crazy amount of loss I know, but I was really chuffed and felt like it was sustainable. I went from 12 st 6lbs to 11st 5lbs. I decided to stop going when I found out I was pregnant with Austin, as I couldn’t really see the point in continuing whilst pregnant.

So I’m back to it. I must admit I was pretty nervous about the initial weigh in yesterday, but it wasn’t as bad as I had feared! 11st 12lbs! Not bad I thought for 3 and half weeks postpartum. I’ve decided to set my target for 10st 7lbs, it’s been years since I have been this weight so hoping not an over-ambitious target, we shall see I guess.

I was pleased to note that there hasn’t really been any changes in the dos and don’ts since last year which makes life easier. Stocked up on my hi Fi slimming world bars, including new flavour dark mint chocolate!

So now I just need to plan out our meals for the week and try and not eat too much chocolate over Easter!! Easier said than done!

I plan on documenting my slimming world journey through the blog, including ideas for recipes. Come back next week to see how I got on with my first week and my first weigh in.. ? eek! Wish me luck!


I have rejoined slimming world, and gone back to group.

    Good luck and good idea to take it slowly: remember it takes 9 months to grow a baby(and gain weight) so allow at least 9 months to get back to normal. I look forward to reading your journey 🙂

    Good luck, I am sure you will have an amazing journey! 🙂

    Good luck with it, I think as long as you eat healthily and look after yourself it is a good time to start

    Good luck to you! John and I both want to lose a bit of weight and have been thinking about doing this.

    Good luck on your journey, you are going to do amazingly and it is never too early.

    Good luck, I’m more than certain you will do well. My brother was just telling me the other day that he has lost 3 stone with SW. And he has enjoyed it, hasn’t felt like it was a chore. Which I feel is the way it should be.

    I recently rejoined SW to so good luck on your journey 🙂

    Well done on rejoining! I am going tonight. I am actually sick to think of how much weight I have put on and I am embarrased to step on the scales, but at least I am taking the first step. I am loving the new flavours in the hifi bars and I cannot wait to pick them up tonight! Best of luck this week xxx
