So.. I am back after having my second baby boy!
The first time around, I achieved my goal (not a dream goal) of going from 87kg to 75kg. I stopped D and decided to take a break, but my weight fluctuated slightly up and down to 79kg. But I was still looking fine and I was happy with that! I fell pregnant at around 79kg. Fast forward to today, I am 95kg post partum, so I’ve decided to come back on D! It hasn’t been an easy decision, as I was breastfeeding and I was constantly torn on when to start D. But being my baby boy is now 3 months old and taken to the bottle & dummy (he was comfort sucking a lot!) now, I happily went on. I am 3 days in and haven’t weighed myself yet. I am hopeful to get down to about 80kg this time, and later on hopefully 70-75kg. I am trying hard to take it easy on my body since it’s just been through pregnancy, birth and etc... but I am so sad looking in the mirror and not seeing a happy mum looking back with a beautiful baby in her arms. I take such great pride in my appearance and I didn’t want to have two babies change how I feel about myself. I want to be a happy, confident mum for my hubby and two babies!! Wish me luck :)

Hey dear,

Congratulations on becoming a mommy for the second time! :party::heart:

It's great that you've decided to get back on track with your body shape, however, you shouldn't be too harsh to yourself. It's absolutely fine to gain some weight during the pregnancy.

What helped you lose 12 kg last time? How long and what dose of Duromine did you take?

Thanks, April!

I know it’s important to take it easy with myself but seeing how difficult it was to lose weight after having my first baby, I am definitely so worried about not losing the weight again with some help. And from memory, I literally tried everything for a year and it wouldn’t shift. I hate looking back at photos :(

I lost those 12kg from 30mg of D, and it took about two packets, so roughly 2 months! :)

Dear, 12kg in 2 months is an amazing result! :bomb:I wish you good luck . We're with you:heart:
P.S. To motivate yourself, I always recommend doing photos during your weight loss journey to see the progress

I’m in same situation! Had a baby I’m now ready to shift the weight, question... did you do any exercise during the 2 months to loose the 12kgs the first time around or did you just change your diet? Cheers. Looking to drop about 15 to 20kgs.

@GetSkinnyAgain I know that feeling. I am a mother, I am a soldier. We all are soldiers in this war with our enemy called FAT. Being a mother is the most beautiful time in our life and there is no time to regret. I am sure that Duromine will help you, but you shoud help yourself first. So buck up, soldier, come out of your warm bed, it's time for a new battle! You can do it and you wil do it!

I didn't weigh myself often. I prefer taking pics.
I see more differences and progress in my pictures than on the scales.

Totally agree! When I see that my dresses become loose, it's a win! (Even if my scales show no difference at all :rolleyes:)

I didn’t do much exercise the first time. I worked full time and was pretty much on my feet all day anyway, but with more energy!

This time, I took D for a week, stopped because I was umming and ahhing a bit. Came back a week later and dropped 3kg within a good week. So I’m officially on week 2 now, but I haven’t weighed myself this week. I’ve been growing a bit on an appetite which I find strange, so I’ve been eating properly so I can have some energy. I don’t want to go thru the ugly fatigue phase and I’m sure that happens when I don’t eat!

@GetSkinnyAgain Do you go to the gym or you exercise at home?

No, unfortunately no time with two little kids. A brisk walk here and there, but nothing really.

@GetSkinnyAgain If you walk at least 5 km each day, that's a normal physical activity :blush: Good luck :cool:

I congratulate you on such a happy and blessed occasion :party::party::party:
And it is expected that your body has changed. And now it's all about you. Your babies should be the best motivation to lose weight and be a healthy mother. Healthy mother - happy children :heart:
