With no more babies planned (EVER!) I am starting to think that now is the time to take a bit more care of myself and get my figure back. I was a size 12-14 before I got married in 2007 and then went on to have 4
kids in 6 years without much serious thought to my weight or figure in between - just some slight weight loss which usually resulted in me getting pregnant again! The biggest I have been (without a Bump) is a size 20.
Right now there is still a month to go before I have my 4th & final baby. Because I have been under the threat of gestational diabetes I have tried to watch what I eat in this pregnancy. I was 14 stone 3lb (199lb) and a size 18 the day I found out I was pregnant. I would like get to 10 and a half stone (147lb).
I'm not a massive fan of exercise, but I do like to swim. I'm not great at controlling what I eat unless I am signed up with something like Weight Watchers so I will likely do that again too.
I have always lacked motivation to get fit and slim, there seemed little point putting in all that effort if I was just going to get pregnant again. But now I'm not. I'm done. I have 3, soon to be 4, kids who are all active and I need to be able to keep up with them, and not embarrass them by being that "Fat Mum". I need to be able to set a good example (as some of my kids are less naturally inclined to a healthy lifestyle than others)
Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
