What is the best way to lose weight while pregnant?
Lately I have been feeling really bad about my weight, not because I'm pregnant, but because I'm a bigger girl. I was around 200 pre-pregnancy and now with all the bloating I'm 209 I would like to start trying to lose some weight through my pregnancy since I had severe pre-eclampsia with my first daughter, not to mention it's just better. I had a m/c back in July so I'm really nervous about exercising, but would like to know different things I can do that will really help me lose some weight. I know to eat better so I'm talking more about exercises. I would love to be the one that loses more than she gains, but I need something that will be safe. I'm going to talk to my doctor about it too, but my appointment isn't until the 24th. Thanks for any advice!
try eating fruits and vegies and only when your actually hungry. I am a bigger girl to and am trying to maintain my starting weight thru the pregnancy. so far i have actually lost about 3 pounds. The way i see it is maintaining my weight with a baby growing would actually be like losing 15 pounds by the end. I am not dieting by any means. just eating healtier. last week at the grocery store i made a concious desicion to buy mostly fresh fruits and veggies and no frozen dinners or pizzas. dont get me wrong i still got things that i wanted like hot choc mix and cinamon toast crunch . but i just try to eat healthier over all. additionally i never ate breakfast prepreg now I do and really do feel a difference. hope this kinda helps.
Walking is a life saver. It helps me from gaining too much with all my cravings and hunger in the second trimester. I usually walk from 30-60 minutes a day 5 days a week, and usually eat whatever I want and gain pretty slowly.
I have gained about 40 pounds in the last year an half after gall bladder surgery. I just found out I am pregnant and hope to maintain or lose without hurting the baby. I already feel huge! Plus don't think it is healthy.
I feel huge too, this is my 3rd preg., 2nd child so I'm kinda showing already. I know a lot of it is water retention and my uterus of course, and I can't wait till this bloat goes down so I can say I'm back down to what I was before I got pregnant. It's hard though, you don't want to hurt your baby, but at the same time being a healthier weight is even better for the baby.
I had put myself on semi-bed rest (no exercise) because I was afraid I had a weak implantation, but the time has come for me to start exercising again... I am going to start walking every day and will probably stick with that until the baby is born. Just make sure your heart rate doesn't go above 120 bmp (or is it 140?).
I honestly have no clue. I really want to talk to my doctor about it first but really don't want to wait another 2 weeks and would feel really stupid for calling him about me wanting to walk lol. I'm also going back to work, hopefully at the end of next week and when I tried on my work pants my stomach was bulging just from all the water weight and me showing. I want to go ahead and get work maternity pants since I'll be 10 weeks when I do go back. I just feel really self-conscious about this pregnancy...can't wait till I'm further along so I have a reason for being big.
