New in UK and new in the site, trying to lose 50+ lbs after my second baby

Hi everyone, my name is Natalia, I recently arrived in Liverpool, we moved from Italy with my husband and children. I gave birth 10 months ago and instead of losing weight I kept gaining much more. I need to get back to a healthy lifestyle and start exercising again. I hope I can find info and motivation in this community. After my 1st was born I managed to lose about 30 pounds and I was in a healthy weight but I gain way too much during and after my second pregnancy.

Nice meeting you all

  • You need to plan for the life you and your little one want, not to mention your other child and husband.

    You've lost weight before, so hopefully the old tricks will come back to you, distract from chocolate sugar as reward systems ( or booze), re portion your life, , find an activity calculator and find what you need for now calorie wise. X

    Welcome and if we can help please.....just ask 😜😉

  • Welcome Natalie. Time to get on a plan and start again. You will love feeling in control as the weight comes off. You will feel better and your body will thank you. I use myfitnesspal to monitor my calories. It's a free app and calculates for you. I also wear a Fitbit HR which really motivates me to move. Good luck. We are all behind you 😊😊😊

  • Welcome Natalia 😊

    Good that you have found this site as there is plenty of support and advice.

    Have a good look around, there is a 12 week plan to help you get started and the NHS bmi calculator to work out how many calories you should be eating.

    Any questions, just ask away 😊

    I find reading through older posts helpful as I realise that I am not alone on this journey and I often pick up a few new ideas.
