Hey everyone im new to this, and working out . I mean i've done it before but need some serious motivation. I've had 3 kids a boy, and twin girls. The mommy weight is evident . Anyone have any good workout ideas, food tips, grocery list, and receipes, cause I can use all the help i can get! . Also what do you do for when the sweet tooth, and the snack fairy come around?. Thanks

Hello and welcome... I'm a newbie also.. but I can share what I've been doing....
I had to cut back on the snacks (that was a must), but I do slip up and indulge sometimes(which is ok).. watch your "red meat" intake and eat lots if vegetables.. there are lots n lots of programs and workouts on here... Start beginner and feel your way through.. there's plenty of people to talk to, for motivation on here.. welcome

I hear u girl I have two little ones and I never even thought about weight till after I had kids and the changes ur body goes thru...I wld say start with a food journal write down EVERYTHING you eat... Ppl usually don't realize how many calories they eat till they see it!!! I love cereal but u knw when u pour it its usually fills the bowel... But in reality 3/4 is one serving which is about 120 cal w/o Skim milk...so once you do that you will see what you eat and where you can tweak stuff like turkey burger instead of ground meat...light wheat brd egg beaters etc... But the workouts here do wonders but you shld def look at what ur eating pay attention to the actual serving size... 

Sry so long hope it helped for a lil start!!!

Hi! Welcome! I just started too. No kids, but a lot of emotional and physical baggage I am working on getting off me. SparkPeople app/website is good for grocery lists. Lose it is a good app for calorie counting! Hope that helps. If you have a blender, make fruit n yogurt smoothies and ice pops for dessert. Low to fat-free yogurt plus plenty of your favorite fruits. Great snack and dessert. Honey is a good sweetener instead of reg sugar. Don't over do it. Plus the smoothies are filling. Hope this helps!!!

Juicing is awesome! Try eating as natural as possible. Stick to it and you will see results!

Welcome, when the sweet urges come, I'll opt for some no sugar added yogurt. I try not to over indulge but I won't ignore it either. I've tried to ignore and are everything else

Hey welcome, I'm a mum too and a lil thing that really helped me was to not pick of my daughters plate. You know as they grow u get used to sharing their food and finishing their plate. I learnt to just bin it and eat my own dinner and she eats hers. No picking!! Hope this helps. 

Oh and stay away from their snacks if there eating crisps you grab some fruit, yogurt or something you like that's also healthy.
