I'm shauna and im new here. I saw this group and really wanted to join. I always found it hard to loose weight as I'm the kind of person who needs pushing sometimes to keep on track.
Basically, I was size 10 when I got pregnant at 17. I didn't put too much weight on until I started with preeclampsia at 30 weeks. I was monitored but the visual disturbances made me close to blind so I comfort ate to make myself feel better as I felt so alone. After the baby was born i managed loose weight to a size 12/14 before I got pregnant again and swelled up again. By this point I had stretch marks everywhere and I mean literally everywhere ! Arms, thighs, legs, boobs, bum, back and belly. My confidence was shot when my husband and I had a rough patch and I comfort age again. I'm now size 20 and 9 weeks pregnant I was starting to put a diet into action when I found out I was pregnant. I don't want to be this big. I feel so ugly and horrible. I hate looking at myself. I just want to loose a bit of weight so I feel healthier to enjoy my toddlers and have a healthier pregnancy. I know it's not advised to diet in pregnancy but it's also not recommended to weigh 16stone. I need help on where to start and how to go about dieting when pregnant.
Sorry if I waffled on ! I'd appreciate any help or advice. Thanks again!
