Hi everyone my name is Lucy i am new here i was neededing some help and advice if possible. I will try cut the story short. First off i am from Australia so any advice given related to food or weight please use kg or foods we have here anyway,
I am a mother of two kids 5 and 6 before i had my children i was a small size 6 AU that is the smallest from what i know i had the flat stomach no love handles nothing i never worked out did not need to i just drank water all the time and never ate junk but never tracked what i was eating and this worked fine with me with no problems.
I had my first child in 2006 and the weight pretty much fell off right after i had him lucky me i was back in my size 6 the day i gave birth. I then fell pregnant again in 2007 i was not so lucky with him i gave birth and could not fit into my size 6 i could not understand why the weight never fell off.
I ended up with the muffin top as people may call it the big buldge at the front that makes u look pregnant and love handles OMG.
I have never ever been big so to me this was just bull from 2007 i have beeen on and off diets and then i gave up pretty much in 2011 and gained a coca cola habbit i litreally got addicted to the drink no matter what i could not stop drinking it. I always had a can a day it is only until now i have really stopped drinking it and trying to drink as much water as i can.
I use a tracking system called myfitnesspal to track what i eat at the moment i stick to under 1200 calories because thats what everyones telling me to do and to stick at i know this is very low. I have also started walkig on my treadmill for 30mins a day. I still find i have no energy im hungry most of the time. I am on weight watches were i have the frozen lunch and frozen dinner only because i litreally dont know what to eat that would be good for me.
I read everywere this is good for u this is bad for you so there for i got no clue anymore i am here today to get that type of advice maybe some smaple meal plans but stuff that would not be really costly as i am amother i cant afford the great foods. I also have a problem with milk i cant tolerate it well and usually use organic soy milk if i need to make anything with milk.
Im not here to get a 6pack or anything i just want a nice toned stomach with no love handles etc as u can see from my pic taken a week ago i have a bump that i can not get rid of.
meal plans etc?
Thank you all so much for your help
