I used to jog and go to exercise classes years ago before I had kids. My eldest is 4 years old and my youngest is 3 months old. I’m starting out again now. Finding it very difficult to stay within the 1400 calorie limit. I’m on my feet all day running around after the kids and I’m so hungry. I started Apple fitness last week and I try to do a routine about 5 days a week. I do 20 minutes HIIT, 20 minutes strength and then 2 10 minutes core workouts. I try to go out for a walk everyday for some fresh air as we are in a level 5 lockdown and cannot go further than 5km from our homes. I walk about 3/4 miles at a fast pace. The evening time is the hardest for me. I tend to binge eat watching tv. I’m trying to drink tea now instead but I’m really struggling. I’m not hungry, just looking to eat out of boredom/habit. At the weekends I’ll have a glass of wine. I cannot lose any weight. It’s really getting me down. Anyone else struggling? My boys are not in preschool as it’s closed with the pandemic so I’m trying to do the workouts at times where I give them play doh or crafts to do and the baby has gone down for a nap. My husband is great support on his days off and after work and just takes over the house so I can workout. I can’t do them in the evening as I’m exhausted after my day. Anyone any tips to start shifting weight?

Hi! I am 6 weeks pp with my first! He is amazing 😊 I am looking to lose 25 pounds. I was 185 pre-pregnancy. Was running until 6 months then it was too cold for me, would love to start that again. Been counting calories for a week now and still trying to figure out a workout schedule aside from my daily walks. Starting to work again today from home, which sucks but at least my boy is with me. Would love friends on here for accountability and motivation!

Sent you a friend request! I’m 10 weeks pp and have 10 more lbs to lose before getting back to my prepregnancy weight, then I’d like to lose an additional 20lbs. I’ve used MFP in the past too and lost/maintained a 60lb loss.

Hello! I’m 18 weeks pp 2nd baby. I was actually horrified to realise I had only put on 7lbs this time and I was just fat to begin with!! I’m 5’3.5 and 165 lbs (11st11) now, I would like to get to 145-150. My profile pic I was about 140 but I don’t feel the need to be that slim, I just want to get back into my old clothes because I dont want to buy new ones. I’m breastfeeding. Long walks work for me but it’s pretty hard to get my 2 year old to sit in a buggy for 2 hours. Sometimes I go at nap time and they sleep, but then I feel guilty that they aren’t getting any benefit.
When I try to do a home workout one or both just scream at me until I stop! The weight is coming off slowly anyway but I really just want to stuff my face 🤣
