Trim and Healthy Tuesday: 6 months into the plan

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while.  Our whole household has been besieged with illness or injury of one form or another.  But it's Tuesday and here I am. 

I've been doing the Trim and Healthy Mama eating plan for six months now.  This is how I looked before I began.  I had just given birth to Josiah and weighed almost18 stone or 252lbs.
I did try to lose some weight for his dedication and bought a beautiful Boden dress in a size 20 but it really only fit me because it was super stretchy and really showed off all my lumps and bumps.

So, six months after starting the plan I have lost around about 4 - 4.5 stone or 56-63lbs.  And I look like this.

To be honest, although I can see an improvement I still feel very overweight.  I seem to have lost everywhere except for my tummy area, which is so frustrating.  I have now started to do specific targeted exercises in a bid to deal with this problem area.  I am still really enjoying the diet.  It doesn't feel like a diet at all to me since you are able to have so many yummy foods and treats.  Eating out is a breeze too as there always seems to be something on plan on the menu, which is something I've struggled with on other diets.  So forwards and hopefully downwards on the scale I go.
Before I finish this THM Tuesday, I'd like to show you this other photograph from Josiah's dedication.  It pictures me and Jo with my totally hunky and gorgeous hubby.   

And here he is now.  He's been following the plan too.  Although he hasn't got weighed at all during the process I think you'd have to agree that he has shrunk somewhat in the last six months too.  Proof that THM works for Dads too. 

I have decided to only weigh in once a month as I find that constant weigh ins combined with hormonal related weight fluctuation only serve to hinder my progress.  So for the THMTuesdays in between I'm hoping to bring you some tasty recipes or updates on my exercise plan. 

I would love to here from other mums who are doing THM and link to their pages.  Please let me know if you are interested.

Really good work, I am very impressed!

I need to lose some weight too. Tummy weight is often the last to go I hear.
