I am trying to loose weight and get healthier too. As I am the same way, 10 lbs here and there! I would suggest TTC now and not wait. It can take a long time to actually concieve. If you wait until you loose then you might be waiting even longer to be pregnant. Good Luck!

1st, Congrats on your weight loss. I am currently TTC while trying to loose weight. I say, if you are ready to start TTC, go for it. You can still loose weight while TTC. As someone who has been struggling for months to conceive, I can say, getting pregnant may not happen right away. So, you may have yet a few months to go before you actually get pregnant. Good luck to you and I hope you feel confident in whatever decision you make.

I would say start now and keep working out.  You never know – it could take you til January (hopefully not!!) to get PG but then you’ll be glad you didn’t put it off!  Congrats on losing the weight – I’m TTC and working on losing too!

I TOTALLY get what youre saying. Me and a lot of Bees here have expressed similar stories.

I think you can do both, TTC AND lose wight.

Believe it or not TTC doesnt happen as quick as you imagine. It just so funny all our lives we try to take care of ourselves so that we dont get pregnant, and then when were ready, it doesnt happen as quick as we would like it to.

Personally speaking I am doing both, I am focusing on losing weight and I am working with a Nutrtionist to help me continue to lose weight safely Should I fall pregnant.

I am overweight and I can safey lose 1 pd a week while pregnant if I happen to get pregnant.

I say go for it – I am currently trying to lose weight and my RE has made us put TTC on hold for a while until I can get to a safe weight for a pregnancy but if you are already there then I wouldn’t wait. You never know how long it is going to take.
