Mummy Tummy Memoirs: Week Two

Well according to last week's figures I have lost a whopping 5lb in one week! However I am more inclined to believe that last week I mis-weighed myself and was actually 2lb lighter. So my actual starting weight should have been 8st 5lb. That still means I lost 3lb in one week which I am pretty impressed with! Especially considering I really didn't do the amount of exercise I planned to and only managed to fit in two proper walks and the odd bit here and there. Still, something must have worked - maybe switching from my holiday eating of very rich and yummy foods to a mainly fish, low carb an weigh watcher's snacks regime lead to such a huge weight loss all at once. Either way, it's fine by me! Comparing the photos my stomach doesn't look to have gone down, in fact it looks more bloated? However I have lost a little around my waist and hips so things are heading the right way. Onward and upwards!

Please do share your own journeys below, I would love to read how things are going for you!

Mummy Tummy Memoirs: Week One

Slim at 18 years old
Growing up I watched by Nana constantly trying this diet and that diet, watching her weight and always miserable about her size. I always swore I would not follow in her footsteps and no matter my size, I would not spend my life miserable. And up until recently I never had to worry about it. At eighteen I was a size 6 and weighed a mere 6 1/2 stone.

Cut to ten (ish) years later, having had two children in eighteen months, with little time to watch what I eat or energy to do anything about it, my figure is definitely not what it was. I find myself looking in the mirror depressed and struggling to find clothes that look good or fit right. I know the stretchmarks, though they may fade, will never go and my two c-section scars are certainly here to stay, but I don't mind that. In fact I wear them with a certain amount of pride - they are my battle scars. However the wobbly bits and the muffin top are not welcome additions.

Definitely more rounded now
So it is with some anxiety and determination I have decided to try my hardest to get my to my old self. By that I don't mean my eighteen year old figure, that is long gone, but I would like to return to a size eight and about 7 1/2 stone. At my slight 4ft10 frame I would be happy with this. By eating right and trying to do some form of exercise every day I hope to gradually drop those unwanted lb's. I aim to do a weekly update of how I am doing along with photos so I can compare each week. And I have decided to share my journey here, to give me some motivation and maybe help someone else along the way. So here I stand, mummy tummy out for the world to see, vulnerable but determined. Wish me luck!
