Ok so before I had my daughter i was a restictor(of my calories) , but when I was pregnant I went crazy and I gained 73lbs ( I was really low in the beging of my pregnancy , had to get off all my meds except xanax i just lowered my dose) And now I am back on meds , lost about half the weight I put on but I just can't seem to get back to watching what I eat ! It makes me so depressed my body was one of the things I was proud of now I feel like I have nothing ( except my little one and my hubby) I just want my body back but I don't have the courage to get to the gym and when the baby stresses me out I go to the fridge:( any advice or thoughts?

my health centre does mother and baby classes you could see whats on in your area, it would be a great weight lifting exercise with the baby and you would both enjoy it.

i walk a lot - everywhere and find that I've lost a lot of weight and have fantastic legs! It's hard to exercise with a small baby - finding the time is difficult. Perhaps mother and baby swimming?

I'm bipolar and consider myself to weigh too much. I would very much like an enjoyable exercise I could do frequently. Walking/swimming both sound good. Though I probably outsize my swim clothes :(
