We don't measure in stones here, but I am 4'11" and a UK size 16-18 depending on the brand, down from a size 26 at the start of the year. I intend to lose weight till about 20 weeks and then keep whatever weight I reach then till delivery.

I didn't gain any weight at all with my other kids but I was super morbidly obese with them, a bmi around 50 with my son and 52 with my daughter.

Wow minties! Size 26 to 16-18 in a year is amazing! I hope you're very proud of your achievement!

My BMI at booking was 32, so I'm hoping to not gain much. I eat healthily normally but have a really bad additional sweets habit, especially when stressed. So I'm trying to just cut that down. At the moment it's not a problem, as I feel too sick for sweets but unfortunately lemonade helps the nausea. I'm still losing weight overall though because I'm constantly queasy and can only manage tiny portions now. Will have to be more disciplined once nausea subsides.

That's a massive loss minties, well done!

Hi Amy sounds like you are doing well, I haven't had any nausea yet, just a few little food aversions. Interesting that lemonade had helped, will keep that in mind.

In thought I was doing really well today, I took fruit, yogurt, healthy unch and some nuts to work but I'd eaten it all by 3 and was so hungry . I ended up raiding the leftover Christmas goodies.

Any snack suggestions? I need to do better tomorrow!

Have you ever made Slimming world curry loaf?

Tin of chickpea dahl, 4 eggs and a packets or made up curry rice. Mix all together and bake in a lined oven tin for 30ish minutes till firm. Really good for snacks

When i saw the consultant yesterday, he said that they now ask women with a BMI over 30 to gain no weight in pregnancy?!

Which tbh seems a bit much, I had set myself a target of a stone, so I wasnt gaining anything other than baby/water/blood etc. But not increasing your BMI at all seems a bit much.

Has anyone else gotta similar advice?

hey ladies im not pregnant but i wanted to join and support you ladies if you dont mind.

im very overweight and was for all of my pregnancies.. my last was my heaviest. I d idnt gain much at all with my last preg and dropped 12lb as soon as he was born.

^^the above thing of telling you to gain no weight is rediculous. As a pregnant woman you are not supposed to try and loose weight.. especially if your starting as overweight so its completely obscene that they say this. I was told right through my last preg to not obsess over numbers but just watch what i was eating. If you maintain your own weigt your still going to gain due to baby and all the extras baby comes with.



well done minties on your amazing loss!! I hope to follow in your footsteps.

before having Rohan i was a size 28 and 20 stone 11lb. Today i am a size 22 and 16stone 10lb.

I've heard of that curry loaf before nic,thanks for the recipe I think I'll have to give it a try!

I can't believe they've told you not to gain weight, that's effectively been told to lose weight!? I've got my booking in on two weeks time so will see what they say to me. I'm going to keep my gain minimal, which will be effectively losing I guess but that's my choice.

Hi sethsmummy! Welcome along sounds like you've made some great progress.

I cat wait until all the Christmas biscuits and chocs are gone, I think I need to start taking more food to work because I get so insanely hungry and then end up eating rubbish .

Happy new year everyone

I hope so! Struggling with food at the moment because I just don't fancy anything except carbs

Going shopping soon and made sure I've got lots of fruit and lean meat on the list. Decided that if all is well on Monday I'm going back to the gym next Wednesday, I'll just take it easy.

I need to weigh myself to confirm but I think my bmi is around 33.

Mines 32/33, was 45 at the start of the year.

Dont worry about eating carbs, you need carbs obviously some carbs are better than others. Such as whole grain pasta/rice etc rather than chips from the chippy, which btw I REALLY want rightnow
