Does anyone know of a safe and healthy way to lose weight during pregnancy. I am currently about 30 kgs overweight & I was a size 12 the last time I fell pregnant. Puttig on 30 kgs got me here, over the last almost 3 yrs i would lose weight then gain it just as quick.... I just happened to fall pregnant at this weight and I am really worried about gaining too much this pregnancy. I am already watching what i eat. Any tips?
My cousin lost 50lbs while pregnant, and she said it's all about eating right and healthy portions, and exercising lightly when you feel up to it!
Thank you expecta! yes I definitely know its possible, since the day i found out i have consciously been making much better food choices. i think putting on 30 kgs with my first has scared the bajeezers out of me and i will do anything to avoid that this time
I am plus size, but I've lost 6lb in the past week as I'm doing slimming world. I have decided that just because I'm pregnant, I'm not going to use that as an excuse to pig out and eat what ever I want. I'm happy to continue with slimming world throughout the pregnancy and I'm still eating really well but just healthily. I'm 14st 12lb at the moment and a size 18 - 20 x
I know with some they prefer you be a member before you get pregnant. I'm currently with Rosemary Conley and weight right now about 24 stones. I managed to lose to before I got pregnant. I was planning on telling my instructor wednesday but the car broke down. Its now fixed, so hopefully will tell her tomorrow.
I know exactly how you feel donna. I was 13 stone when I fell pregnant with my son 10 years ago and put on 4 stone weighed in at just over 16 after birth. I joined weight watchers and lost 5 stone in a year, a bit quick I know but I broke up with my partner so was determibed to loose the weight. I met my husband at 11 stone but got down to 10 stone and kept it that way for over 5 years, I had not been that slim since school, we went through ivf and I put on a far bit of weight during the process then got pregnant and now weigh 13 stone 11 pounds, ive lost a stone since giving birth 6 months ago but with being 3 months pregnant im petrified I will put on the same weight and then be huge again. I know my husband loves me but I hate being this way and know he would not want me to be this size forever although he would never say that or ever imply it. I am going to try and not eat rubbish and biscuits this time round but its hard at times. Xxx
donna, I joined the day before i found out i was pregnant but i spoke to the lady who runs it and let her know i was pregnant. I asked if it was safe to carry on throughout pregnancy. She said yes, absolutely. She sent me a pregnancy pack out in the post which i have to give to my midwife to sign. She said if the midwife is happy for me to loose weight through out my pregnancy then they will support that the whole time. If she wants me to maintain my weight that's fine also and will they will still support me as much as they can to help me maintain. I'm only 5ft 2 though so i'm small but big. I have a feeling the midwife will be happy with me to carry on loosing weight as it's done healthily and it's not as if i'm depriving my self of anything. x
