It does get harder with children and as we get older. We tend to put the babies needs before our own. But I suppose we also need to be healthier for our children, to be there for them as they grow up and have the energy for them. I once tried hypnotherapy to lose weight and he told me it was easier to get someone to give up cigarettes than to lose weight. When you give up cigarettes you give up completely and remove all cigarettes from the house. You can't do that with food or you would starve!! I have been on the diet roller coaster all my life so I know where you are coming from. Best of luck - you can do it, we all can if you use the fantastic tools available on this site for free.
Never give up, never quit, never surrender
You only fail when you stop trying
There is nothing to hold you back except you.
You can press forward long after you canít. Itís a matter of wanting it bad enough.
The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

i've been overweight my whole life...i had a baby 8months back, and because i was pre-diabetic i didnt gain much during pregnancy and went from 85kg at full-term to 69kg in just a couple of weeks after the birth. i guess it was the loss of baby weight plus i had pre-eclampsia so it was water weight and bloating too, and breastfeeding. i've lost weight lots of time, especially on the cabbage soup diet, scarsdale medical diet, the salad diet, boiled food only diet etc...,but i have trouble maintaing. i've gone from 148lbs in late october to 172 today. i really want to get down to 145 by august 1, as i have a special trip planned but am losing confidence in myself...plus i find dieting harder now that i have a demanding baby to care for...i need lots of support. this is as hard for me as quiting smoking for a hardcore smoker or wine for an alkie. help.
