Hi flaca01, thanks for your comment. Just to clarify, no kids have been lost .... due to death or other circumstances! Just the weight has been lost! You see, I was average weight when I fell pregnant with our first child, but was still a few kilos over that base weight when I fell pregnant with our second, and about four kilos over that original base weight when I fell pregnant with our third. So now that we have finished having our family (three gorgeous little people, our oldest is four, our middle 2 and our youngest six months) and I am approaching 40 it is time to shift all those extra accumulated pregnancy kilos.
