I have been thinking about starting a thread for those of us who are loosing weight...glad to see this already here.

I am way over weight with PCOS and am loosing to get my cycles back, conception, and a healthy pregnancy. Plus vainity...I want to be a cute pregnant woman and look like I am pregnant instead of just getting fatter.

I lost over 100 pounds back in 2007 doing a VERY low calorie / low carb / low fat. I started over 300 pounds (and had not had a period in a long time) in June and by the end of the summer, I was down 50 pounds and my period had showed up again.

Over the last few years I gained back about 70 pounds!!! My period has again disappeared since Fall 2011, I think. October 2011 I started the HCG diet and lost about 30 pounds that I have maintained.

I am now doing a lowish carb (under 40) and low calorie (under 1200, usually) and I try to keep my fat low. Since the start of 2013 I have lost 12 pounds. Most of it was lost in January because Febuary has been a month of bad emotional eating, holidays (Valentines and Purim) and just reloosing what I lost and gained in January. I am still happy with losing the 12 pounds.

I am determined to get back in gear and lose as much as possible in March while we are not TTC. I was put on BC pills for a month to hopefully get rid of a cyst on my ovaries. My RE may be putting me on Metformin (waiting on blood work results) and I have heard that some have been able to get more wieght off when taking Metformin.

I try to remind myself, when I start to slip because of emotions or craving, that I am doing this for baby...and that is a very good reason.

Both of you ladies are amazing. Thank you for sharing and inspiring with what you have achieved so far.

I was up early this morning for another 25mins exercise before work - legs are killing me now! Then DH recorded my current weight on my ipad app. I used to go to weight watchers but decided to save the money since I failed at maintaining weight loss anyway but liked having someone to check I was weighing and recording every week. He is under strict orders to not back down no matter how grumpy I get with him and this diet.

I came off BC pills in Nov and we started properly trying in Jan - he was away with work during my O week in Dec. Had been on the pill for ten years so was pleased to get AF within six weeks, body even produced ewcm which googling told me was a good sign of ovulation. Since then have had 27 day cycle (although this month was nothing until wiped evening of cd27,properly on cd28) and CM changes and become stretchy - ewcm? - at about day 14.

But, does this mean my body is actually ovulating?!

Anyway, I know I need to lose weight to be healthy if we do manage to get pregnant, vanity - totally agree about wanting to look pregnant, not fat. And something I read says reduced % chance of conceiving for every one point higher on BMI.

Good luck ladies and hope we continue to post and encourage each other on here. We can do this and hopefully have beautiful healthy babies and mummies soon x

Last year I lost about 10 kilo's (22 pounds) then I got pregnant (happy accident) so I stopped trying to lose weight. Unfortunately I had a mc (which was in October). Not been trying to lose weight since, and I've just gained everything back on, plus a little more I think - been dreading to go on the scales, cause I was so proud of myself for losing that much weight!! I was pretty happy with myself then, still would've loved to lose another 5-10 kilo's (11-22 pounds) but still was pretty happy.
Now I just feel fat and horrible. Since the mc all I wanted was another baby and that's why I didn't see the point in dieting, cause I'd gain weight when pregnant anyway. But I haven't fallen pregnant yet (partially cause we had some trouble with side-effects from hubby's meds). So I think I'm gonna start again soon!
AF was due today, but nothing yet, though I think it'll start in the morning So I think I'm gonna start again after AF, cause I usually struggle to diet when AF is here. Hubby wants to lose some weight again aswell, so we'll have to try and do it together, though hubby doesn't really need to lose weight cause he's a stick anyway (with a bit of a pot belly atm, cause he's not working atm). But his metabolism is so fast he'd just burn everything off within a week or 2 of going back to work!

Anyway, Would love to keep up with you girls to try and encourage each other to keep going and maybe keep track of how we're doing??? If you're interested in that, maybe we could make a list of our weights, our goals and our progress??

I'm about 213-216 pounds atm now (I think, as I haven't really been on the scales properly lately). Last year around this time I was 209 and before I got pregnant (and had the mc) I was 188 pounds.

My goal was around 176-165 pounds, though I took it in steps of 11 pounds at a time so it wasn't so depressing. My big milestone for me though was going under 90 kilo's (198 pounds) Which will be my first goal again. Then the next goal would be getting back to the 188 pounds. And then I'll see whether I can or want to lose any more.

I had a plan cheat this weekend for our Purim Party Saturday night. I got off the wagon on Friday and then it just ran over me on Saturday...LOL. I did not weigh yesterday so I am not sure how much I had gained... I know it was alot because I did a very strict protien day (beef) yesterday and this morning I was still up about 4 pounds. THe beef was brisket and I know it was very salty...it was leftoever from out party. I gain VERY fast so I am really not suprised. I am not going to beat myself up over it as this was a planned cheat and I enjoyed all the good BBQ and really enjoyed the alcohol fruity drinks I made..LOL.

So I am doing another protein day (chicken) today and hopefully I will get a good jump on getting these four pounds back off. I have an appt with my gyno for my six month pap and I really want to show some progress.

Hope everyone is doing well. It's a new week so lets take it on....

I am low carb/gluten free TTC. It's what works for my body. Hubby and I are dieting together. We started January 14 and so far I have lost 13 lbs and he has lost 19 lbs. My cycles have been regular for a year now. We plan on going swimming this afternoon so hopefully burn off some weight. Good luck ladies.

I don't know my weight exactly in lbs but it's around 162lb something like that anyway. I'm hoping to lose about 25lbs overall if my math is right (i weigh in kg). I'm following a calorie control plan and at my current rate I could hit my goal around June, but I expect it to take longer due to the fight against PCOS.
Metformin helps! I know because I was on it, but apparently it only helps with weight loss over a certain bmi.

Sorry to hear abut your loss Eltjuh and I impressed with your resolve to lose the weight again. If you've done it once then you can definitely do it again!

I don't think I ate enough today so got a really bad migraine earlier. So although I do want to lose weight I know I need to balance food and exercise so I don't fail.

Really enjoying reading your posts and do hope we can support each other through this long journey. Sorry if you all get bored reading about my daily exercise but if I can write it on here I prove i did it!

If only there was a quick fix!

I've had a rubbish day too. Got a big strip on (as I do when I'm bored of dieting) so I had McDonalds for lunch. Balanced it out, just, to keep my 1000 calorie deficit.
