Diet Week 1

I'm half heartedly starting my diet... lets call it healthy eating and portion control rather than a diet. Diet sounds awful when I'm breast feeding. I weighed myself last week and came in at 14 stone 8oz, which was only 3lb heavier than when I got my positive pregnancy test.

Well... today, just 7 days later, I am 13 stone 8oz! A whole stone loss from last week, and 11lb lighter than positive test day!

I'm not kidding myself that I have shed a stone in fat in just one week, clearly I haven't - and it would not have been healthy or safe if I had. I can only assume that most of this is milk (last weekend my milk came in and my boobs were as big as my head! Now they are more normal) and the water retention I still had in my legs and feet.

Regardless of what that lost stone was though, it's gone! And I am lighter now than before I was pregnant. A lot lighter! I have a nice round 50lb to shift now to get to my ultimate goal (super skinny me with a BMI of 24). And I'm not really eating any differently at the moment, a bit more fruit maybe (WW says breastfeeding mums should have 8 a day, not 5) but that's all.

I wonder how I'll do this week......?

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
