Hi. I've been getting really down and I didn't know where to turn so I thought I'd try this community, which has always been really helpful.
Had my baby almost a year ago now and I didn't get huge during pregnancy, but I definitely widened at the hip and had a bit if belly flab to lose.
I got a massive taste for chocolate once baby arrived, I think due to breastfeeding and being tired all the time.
During the summer when all my favourite fruits and vegs were in season I started to shift the weight a bit, but as the weather got cold and wet, and as my baby's sleep became bad (teething), I went back to the habit of eating more convenience foods.
I just feel so gross and massive. None of my pre baby clothes fit yet, and I live in the same two pairs of jeans and baggy jumpers. I just don't feel like myself at all and my weight is getting me so down.
Does anyone have any tips on what I can do to shift this weight and lose this chocolate habit (that was reignited over Christmas?).
I generally have a good diet, but I am a sucker for something sweet with my cuppa. Also as hubby works away a lot, going to the gym in the evening is out of the question. I do go to a few baby groups and I try and take my baby for a walk each day but I'm just becoming defeated by not seeing any changes.
