I know this is a wedding blog, those in the no are aware that I have a 6 month little girl, Ava who is just the cutest and most adorable bundle ever, but then i’m biased. I’m also mummy to Bella who is 3 going on 13 – i’m pretty sure I was told that it was the teenage years where the fun started not the toddler ones!
To be honest having my first child was a breeze, I was back in my skinny jeans within 3 weeks and seemed to shed any baby weight with a click of the fingers. However having my second child I just seem chubby and whatever I do it isn’t disappearing fast… well its just not disappearing at any rate.
It got me thinking to when I was getting married and although I wasn’t overweight, like all Brides I wanted to lose a few lbs to ensure I looked my absolute best on my wedding day… or it could have been because someone told me that pictures add pounds….who knows.
Thinking back, how I feel now is the same as those months in the run up to my wedding…. I feel chubby, tired, constantly worrying that my skin isn’t glowing and my hair is looking a bit lack lustre and that the tightness of my clothes make me look like Vicky Pollard.
So for all you Brides I shall be charting what I’m going to be getting up to over the next 8 weeks – yup I have given myself a two month deadline to shift the bulge (i need to lose one and a half stone to be my pre-pregnancy and wedding weight!)
I’ll be documenting what works and what doesn’t and using a variety of different methods to achieve my target weight.
Wish me luck, as a self confessed foodie this may be quite the battle………….
