Hi ladies, I have been away for a few days, sorry. Iíve been busy. Iíll have to catch up with yíall.

Eltjuh, I donít exercise as much as I should. I donít really do anything that I would think would be bad for a baby if one was there. Over eight years ago when I hadnít yet figured out that I was pg with my oldest I was taking a kick boxing class and I had a hard time breathing. I thought that was strange bc that had never happened before. A few days later I found out I was pg with Drew. I wish you good luck with your new diet. Do you know what kind of diet you will do?

Good going on the weight loss ladies. Every little pound (or kg) helps.

I definitely eat more than 1200 calories a day. I wouldnít count calories at all except my Lose it app does it for me. Lose it showed that I consumed 1800+ calories yesterday, but I only consumed 16.8 carbs. I only keep track and limit my carbs. Yesterdayís menu went like this:
Coffee with almond milk and splenda, two fried eggs and two sausage patties, a salad with lettuce, tomato, cheese, celery, carrot, rotisserie chicken, and bacon ranch dressing, a steak and lobster dinner with Caesar salad, green beans, and veggie medley (squash).
I donít lose weight if I restrict my calories too much. I sometimes have to remind myself to eat something if it has been a few hours.

We're just gonna cut down on all the crappy food we've been eating (too much cake, crisps and chocolate ) And I'm gonna be doing 1200-ish calories a day. But hubby wants to also do the Insanity dvd's :S My sister in law said she lost a dress size in about 2 weeks with that, but it looks REALLY hard!!! So I'm not sure how I'm gonna do with that! (hubby knows some other people that did it aswell and they said it was hard, and they're his mates from the army - which he isn't in anymore, hence the reason he needs to exercise aswell)

Hubby is gonna make us an exercise plan tomorrow and I'm just gonna see how I do with it I guess!! Hopefully it'll work really well! Just not looking forward to dieting again, it's so hard when you first start off and i've still got in the back of my head that I might get pregnant and then what's the point in losing weight if you're gonna gain it again!

Not sure yet what I'm gonna do when I'm in the 2ww, think I might take it easy on the exercise but still diet.

That sounds great. I find it helpful to clear out the refrigerator and pantry of all of the no-no food. That way it is not there to tempt me. I make a plan to go shopping every few days to replace the foods I need to keep on hand. I prep my groceries after I buy them so that it is easier to grab something on the go or so I am not tempted to buy fast food. By doing these things it makes meal preparation time go better and faster. My MIL wants to lose a few pounds, and she has a crazy amount of junk food in her kitchen. I advised her to box it all up and give it to someone who isnít dieting.

I am doing the same thing. I have started using Myfitnesspal.com and cutting portions and trying to eat more healthy stuff but still portion controlled.

I can't afford to go shopping every couple of days. We buy food for a whole month in 1 go. And top it up with fresh things as we go, when we need it (like bread and fruit and milk).
But we got rid of most of the no-no food, some of it is still there, but they're not sooo bad, I'd be allowed them sometimes. I've done the 1200 calories before so I know I can do it. It's just the first couple of days that are the worst!

I can't refuse myself food when I'm dieting otherwise I get upset and just binge. I have to allow myself a little bit of the bad stuff just in a calorie controlled way. I never tell myself no but I do often think would I rather have this chocolate bar or more calories at dinner time and usually I'd prefer the more calories at dinner time.

Hi ladies,

Just got back from a night away and tried to limit food intake but unfortunately drank a fair bit of wine, which I know is a lot of calories. I have a bit of a headache but am planning on doing some exercise later. Weigh in tomorrow morning and bit nervous incase I haven't lost anything. I know I will be very frustrated if that happens so fingers crossed.

I agree that I have to totally clear out the cupboards of things I shouldn't be eating, such as crisps. Then, even when I have a big craving I can't do anything about it without going out.

Hope you're weekends are going well and not too difficult to stay distracted from any food cravings. I am going to eat more than 1200 calories this week, and make sure it is more when I exercise.

Planning on not buying anymore low fat yogurts but switching to normal ones - has anyone heard or got experience of how low fat dairy can affect fertility? I read an article on it so decided the ones i have been eating may not have helped our chances.

Charlie, I love your myftnesspal ticker. It is so nice. You are doing great.

London, Good plan. My app says I had 1299 calories yesterday and 1819 the day before. I know it helps me to eat more for a few days because it keeps my body from going into starvation mode.

I have heard about how low fat dairy can affect fertility. I always choose the full fat variety. If I need to use milk, I substitute heavy cream. I love yogurt, but I try to choose a yogurt that doesnít say low fat. I am not eating yogurt until I lose another 20+ pounds. Sadly, it is too high in carbs right now. Let me know what kinds of articles you find on the subject. Post a link. We eat a lot of cheese at our house, and Iíve been wondering if cheese is okay.

First day of the diet and exercise plan. Weighed myself for the first time in ages... much heavier than i wanted to be :s gained about 15 kilo's since the mc in october. We have been really bad though! My first goal is to lose 8 kilo's. Myfitnesspal says i can have 1290 cal. A day. Better get myself a weightloss ticker....
Hubby weighed himself as well, would love to swap with him, he only weighs 73 kilo's!

Have you set a target time frame to lose it in?
I've gained weight from my meal and can;t go to the gym today because I've trashed my core muscles
