With a little help from my friends.......

Tuesday, 17 April 2012

..... I am going to lose weight and get fit, as simple as that! It's time to really make a commitment to making so positive changes to my body and my health and I'm sure this will help me in more ways than one.

I have my lovely other half supporting me at home and I have found 5 brand new cheerleaders to help me along the way and I intend to do the same for them! It's amazing what can come from a little conversation, some early morning banter, yesterday I started chatting to a few of my friendly blogging mummy chums on twitter and we were all saying how we were about to embark on the journey of shedding some post pregnancy pounds and we decided that it would be more fun and hopefully more easier if we all helped each other out. A few more of our twitter pals got wind and wanted in on the action and thus was born Gorgeous Mums for Smaller Tums!

So meet my our team  - Dolly at Sex, Drugs Rocker and Stroller Katie at Snuggle Bubby Sonia at The Ramblings of a Formally Rock'n'Roll Mum Lynn at Baby Steps and Vikki at Mummy's Cheeky Monkey
Us ladies will see each other through the highs and lows of reaching our goals and hopefully learn some new tips and ideas along the way!

My own personal goal is to go lose a stone, I weighed myself this morning, I was 9st 12lbs and at 5ft 1in that ain't good! I am below my pre-pregnancy weight (by 2 pounds!) But I am a whole stone heavier since than I was when I met my other half, I want to look nice and feel good in my clothes and I want to have a healthy attitude towards food and exercise as I want LC to learn this too as she grows.

I hoping to achieve a weight lose of 1-2 pounds a week, my whole family are going on holiday in a couple of months and my OH has promised me a fancy designer bikini if I can achieve it! So with my friends behind me I am determined to succeed and I will be posting about my journey as I go, wish me luck!


  1. Best of luck, can anyone join in, I could do with a few cheerleaders on my side too or I'll just reach over for another pastry (my weakness!)

    1. Yes of course! We are hoping to inspire and support as many mummies as we can! x

  2. Ohhh, I'm so excited about being a gorgeous mum with a smaller tum! I'm roughly the same height as you (I'm 5'0 exactly), and I always feel that even a tiny bit of extra weight looks like so much more on a smaller frame! That is why I'm so desperate to shift the flab! Good luck honey and once you get that designer bikini I want to see the pics!


    1. Thanks! x I know what you mean us small people have not much room to put the extra pounds anywhere! x
