    @GreenDream:  Hi! I guess it depends on a number of factors… Is your weight as it is currently going to be a “risk factor” for pregnancy? I could stand to loose a few pounds but my BMI is around 23 so its not viewed as a risk for pregnancy. Also, when I  have dieted in the past it has always affected my cycles. How are your cycles? If they are pretty regular and you are “normal” dieting i.e. not some crazy diet that cuts out major food groups? If not, then there should be no problem starting TTC as I imagine you must be eating pretty healthy, which is great for TTC. 

    So in short, if your weight is not going to be a major risk factor for a healthy pregnancy and your diet is not too crazy then I say go for it!

    Good Luck!!!!

    I voted ASAP unless the “other health problems” pose an issue.

    It depends. 1– like other, is your weight a risk factor or you just want to be at a healthier or more optimal weight for you? If you are fluctuating within a healthy weight, and are doing any crash diets that are affecting your cycles, I dont see a medical reason to wait. 

    However, losing weight is HARD, so if you’ve been working on this for a while and you just want to enjoy the fruits of your labor (ha, no pun intended) and flaunt your nice shape, why not wait a little while before gettign pregnant and changing your shape all over again? 

    It just depends on what you want– if you are young and have plenty of time and aren’t dying for a baby, wait. If you are concerned about your age or just really want a baby now, go for it! 

    One thing– when I went off the pill, I actually did gain a little bit of weight instead of losing it like I hoped. Something to keep in mind if you are on it now.
