I thought I’d start a weight loss thread for those of us who are trying to loose weight while TTC. I’ve come across several wonderful ladies who have expressed they are trying to loose a little and I thought this would be a great place for us to come to. I know in my day to day, those I come in contact with face to face get tired of hearing, “Oh, I lost another pound today.” So I thought, we should share them here. I want this to be a thread for those who have lost to get excited, and those who have gained to get the extra support and/or motivation they need. So let’s share our success and our struggles! Weight loss is a long, hard journey but it is something WE CAN DO!
I’ll start an introduction. If you don’t feel like sharing all, then please don’t. I know some may be a little personal. : )
How long TTC/How Long on weight loss journey: 9 months, 3 months
How much you want to loose / lost so far: I’d would be happy with loosing 46 more, although to be at a weight not considered to be over weight I need to loose 100 more, (yikes!) / I’ve lost 28 so far
What weight loss program are you following: I’m staying semi low carb. Trying to stay under 70 per day and little to no carbs after 5:00
Any weight loss websites or apps: I use sparkpeople.com
How often do you weigh yourself?: EVERY DAY, I feel like I have to stay in control. And if I don’t weigh, I don’t know if I have to work a little harder today for my gain yesterday, or if what I did yesterday was good because I lost.
What keeps you motivated: My motivation comes from the fact that I feel my weight is hindering my TTC chances. I know I need to loose to obtain my goal of holding my precious child in my arms. Whenever I want Ice cream or potato chips, I just think about my future LO and know it won’t happen with ice cream.
Anything else to share?: I was diagnosed with PCOS many years ago and know that weight loss has been the key to controlling it. Only way I’ve found to loose the weight with the PCOS is limiting the carbs.
Good Luck Ladies!! We can do this!!! : )
