I really need to lose 100 + lbs., but I am planning on trying to lose 75 lbs. before TTC next summer. I know I can do it because I have before. But I am mad at myself for not losing the weight for the wedding. I had a long engagement, but I just wasn’t motivated to lose it.
I feel like I look lovely in my dress (despite the double chin that seems to be really emphasized in pictures–hello, airbrushing). But I am worried that once slim, I will hate my wedding pictures. Now that I have baby on the brain, I am RIDICULOUSLY motivated and have already lost 1.5 lbs in three days. 😀
Anyone else have a long way to go weight-wise before baby-making time?

I’m a fencer, leaning towards CBC, however I have much weight to lose if I chose to have offspring.
I really ought to do it for myself though.

Fiance and I made a pinky promise that we’d TTC if I lose weight. He’s on the fence about having babies right away but I’m not getting any younger! I’d have to lose about 50 pounds to be at my goal weight of 135. Hopefully by then my cycle will be back up and running properly so I’m able to conceive.

Yes. I need to lose 40 more lbs to be “healthy”. I’ve been craving sugar lately and have only lost 1 lb in the last month, bring my loss to 10 lbs in 3 months. Stupid insulin resistance and carbs.

I DEFINITELY have to lose about 35-50lbs before I’ll even feel comfortable with the idea of gaining weight with a baby.

Thinking about having a baby is definitely one of the reasons I’m trying so hard to lose weight. I want to be healthy when TTC and when I have the baby. I don’t want my weight to be an issue. I have a little under 100lbs to lose to get to my ideal weight. I’ve already lost 20.
Our wedding is next July and by then I have hoped to have lost at least 70lbs, if not closer to my goal weight. We are thinking of TTC early 2014, maybe sooner. SO I hope by then I’ll be where I want.

Yep. I plan to be down 50 or more by the wedding, and then hopefully 75 down by the time we TTC 6 months to a year after the wedding. I’ve already lost 30 and I can already tell the difference it’s making on me, and weirdly enough my cycle. Six months and thirty ago my cycle was anywhere from 32-45 days, and the last few months it’s become much more normal. I can’t help but think the weight loss is atributing to that.
