Hiya Jodie hope you dont mind if i join in here. I know im not 30 but im a mum to 2 children and fiancee to a super partner. Im 25 and want to lose another 24lbs. I lost 3stones last year and used weightwatchers. I shrunk from a size 18-snug size 14 but my aim is a comfortable 12! I know the struggles of dieting when surrounded by kids and partners treats. I just need extra willpower and everybody at home encourages me not to have the things i dont need, i do keep some handy low cal treats if i need them but theirs do taste better. Hope i can grab some advice from all members here?

Hi Jodie,

I'm a mid 30s mom of 2 young kids. I work part time and the rest of the time I keep everyone on track. Sometimes it is to my own detriment!! The only thing that has kept me sane and on the right track is my career. I took vacation last week - at home, but realized that staying home makes me want to eat and do nothing since I don't feel motivated. I don't think I gained any weight back, but I definitely didn't lose!!

I started out at 147 lb in January. I used a personal trainer for 3 months and am now working out on my own at a gym at my work. My original goal was 130 lb, but I soon realized that I was putting on muscle and the weight wasn't coming off, but I was getting thinner. I revised my goal to 135 lb and am almost there!! I may continue on as I may be able to reach my original goal!
