What day is your weigh in day? ooooo hotpot, I really miss that since I became a vegetarian.

So I finally started today!!!! (a day late ) I weighed myself this morning and I have put weight on so now 242 pounds so I need to lose 51 pounds to be in the over weight category before I will start TTC again.

I have had to eat so far is: belvita breakfast biscuits with a banana and a cup of tea (tea always skimmed milk and calorie free sweetner)
4 pieces of small whole meal bread (56 cals each) with light flora 2 pieces of quorn chicken slices lettuce and extra light salad cream, with a small can of pepsi max.

Exercises: 20 mins on exercise bike, 10 mins abs and then hand weights.

Hi Heather (did I get that right)?

I find myself not weighing myself on a specific day anymore. I just weigh myself when I feel its been a week. This morning I weighed in and found myself weighing 221.6...which is 0.2 lbs lighter than my initial starting weight but thats still disappointing since its been over a month.

Hello ladies, I am STILL stuck at the same weight ( fluctuate from 199.6-200).
I have to say I cut back on some working out because I got SO depressed about NOT losing weight even though I had been working out SO hard. We've also been TTC #2 and right now, I FEEL pregnant but still getting BFN on pee stick. Ugh, so add disappointment onto that. Just fighting inner demons and TRYING to make good food choices.

Hi ladies, i havent forgotten about this thread!
I've only lost 2-3lb... but my bra is too lose in my chest. Its not an old bra so i know its not the elastic going, but ive still had to go down from the first/biggest fastening to the third in the past few weeks. My chest and natural waist are usually the first to change (sadly not my boobs or belly though!) so I'm hoping the loose bra is a good sign, even if the scale doesnt show much of a difference

I know I shouldn't of weighed myself so soon with only starting on Tuesday but the bathrooms scales was looking at me so thought I would jump on and I have lost 4 pounds already I always lose quite a bit in my first week and I also think its to do with me being quite bloated recently due to my AF just finishing so back to 238 now, just got to stick to it and not undo what I lose like I always do.

CottlestonPie - that is really good! You are probably losing fat and gaining muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat so it doesnt seem like a lot but your bra is getting loose so thats good! Keep up the good work!

Owlbump - Massive congrats to you! I lost a little weight when I was pregnant and after I had my baby I was 16 lbs under my pre pregnancy weight.

Claudia dont give up! Sometimes I also feel like I hit a rock and get depressed but at one point you just have to keep going. I am also depressed right now because although I havent gained anything, I'm still not getting anywhere. I must start going to the gym again.

Hi Heather - I try to go to the gym at least an hour a day if not more. I always do resistance training first for 30 minutes and finish off with cardio. I havent been going to the gym the past few days though. My husband has been staying home and I get lazy from the wet weather. I have to start going again! Its good that you have lost 4 lbs though! I was 219.8 probably 2 days ago but now it went back up to 221.6. I just ordered some diet supplements. I did a lot of research and read reviews before I ordered it. I will try it out and tell you ladies if it works or not. Problem is I'm still breastfeeding my lo at night and its not safe. So I either have to wait until I wean him or stop breastfeeding him a month earlier than I planned.

Also, to answer your question about ttc #2, personally I would like to be thinner before having my second, because we dont plan on having another until early next year. Of course, I would like to get down to a smaller number by then...but its not a huge factor. Like if I were to get pregnant right now, I wouldnt mind. Being thinner at the time of ttc #2 is like icing on the cake...I hope Im making sense lol.
