hello everybody !!

A little bit about myself....
I'm 28 years old and had a baby 11 months ago. Her Name is Layla and she is my first born. Hopefully first of 4 :)
Prior to getting pregnant i began to realise that i would binge eat. I wouldnt eat anything all day and then eat like a pig from 6pm onwards. I would eat everything and anything. Once i got pregnant i got worse. I then stopped binging and began just eating from morning to night. CONSTANTLY. 3 months into pregnancy i was diagnosed with sever depression and was put on anti-depressants. Side affect of these was weight gain.So i quickly went from a size 8 to a size 14 in 12months.
As a teen and even in early 20's i was always very petite so i never thought i would feel overweight.

I have tried everything before trying duromine!! No matter what i can not lose weight. My doc says its my meds that dnt allow any weight loss. thats why iam now on duromine.

I train 3-4 times a week doing cardio (for now) treadmill, elliptical and rower then back to treadmill. i eat 6 times a day (all small meals). 3 meals and 2 snacks.
This week my weigh in is at 8 days because i didnt get to the scales till today.
I LOST 3.3KG ON MY FIRST WEEK YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY
so so happy and feel like iv officially joined all of you in this amazing journey.

will post again in a week.
Here are my stats so far

Hey hey Kyles

its going really well so far. 1st day of week 3 today plus weigh in day and iv lost 5.5kg in 14 days so far. My gym tights I noticed today a little loose.

let me know what your weight was today. Hope uv had a loss and hope ur feeling better . Exercising will help u feel good too. Releases endorphins.
iv posted a new blog entry by the way.

all the best hun.
