  • i was back to normal instantaneously but after 12 months i gained weight again and then took about a regular balanced diet to get back into shape.

  • maybe, it’s about balanced diet and also portion control

  • 28 by Sam Wood is one to consider.

  • walking every day and not eating bread, oil . sugar helped me to loose weight but happens very slowly

  • I have struggled a lot and am still struggling, but i found that being careful with what I consume, such as bread and dairy of which I was having way too much, has helped a bit and walking to the shops or wherever I can with the pram has helped. It’s all a process though and we all need to do it in our own time.

  • Aw bless you, it must be disappointing when you try so hard and have no result. I agree don’t give up the result will come. Personally I would go for low fat and plant based too and if you have the energy do some exercise or even start walking. Juicing can be a good way. Try to find a way that suits you so it easier to persevere. After a while you will feel energised !

  • Eat a low fat wholefood plant based diet and you will lose weight. Also try having celery juice every morning it will detox your liver and reset your hormones, check out Anthony Williams website, books and videos. You may have fluid retention. Low calorie food, lots of wholefood carbs, no processed foods, and heaps of fruit and veggies, cut down or out the fats for a bit, including nuts and avocado’s.

  • It will take sometimes to getting back to normal body.Be sure not to be stress.

  • Try the CSIRO diet. It’s evidenced based and you don’t feel hungry on it because you’re carefully managing intake and output. Good luck, it’s really depressing when you don’t see any shift on the scales. Maybe also judge by the fit of your clothes too.

  • I have just found The Healthy Mummy. Check them out on Facebook or their website.
    Great recipes, workout videos, heaps of support.

  • My weight was an eternal struggle but the healthiest option I found was juicing for 3 weeks, surprisingly filling and after a few crappy tired days of no coffee the vegetables and fruits I was juicing surprised me with extra energy and I lost 8 kgs in 3 weeks and I was healthier and more energetic as a result even juicing just one day a week will give your body a break from processed everything and clean your body with juices. Joe Cross is an amazing juicer and has various doco’s and advice to help not only lose weight but to strengthen and heal our bodies with real nutrients. Just remember mum weight can be worn with honour our bodies give life to others and take from ourselves you may feel less tired and more energised and I felt more clarity as well good luck.

  • Oh I feel you. I have the worst sweet tooth. Fingers crossed for you.

  • Just keep persisting and it will shift. It’s disheartening but you will get there.

  • I’m another my fitness pal fan.
    I lost 10kg with it before falling pregnant (& I was able to still do Friday takeaways and an ice cream after dinner most nights) and I’ve just started using it again to help lose the little bit of baby chub I got and it’s working really well again. It lays it all out for you and keeps you accountable.

  • I’m feeling ya! It’s so hard to shed those last few kilos. I lost 10kgs in 2010 when I was given a WII for my birthday. I still needed to lose another 10kgs. Here it is 9 years later, still trying to lose those last few. I haven’t gained any weight though, so that’s a bonus. I’m so frustrated about not being able to lose more though
