Welcome! Yes we do not want baby bump and regular belly to get confused do we! I love food and drink too and have a other half who leads me a stray with good food. I will add you to the list 20lb goal but let me know if you want to change it

Thank you!!

So what's everyone's plan to do this thang?

I am trying to watch what I eat by tracking in MFP and I have yoga 2 -3 times a week but I need to do more, I just don't want to!

MFP and 30 minute walk per day, Kinda all I can manage fitness wise at the moment! The motivation is the hard bit but I hope this helps

Hi ladies!

Can I join?? I am definitely struggling with motivation and drive to just stick to it.

I never heard of slimming world till I saw it mentioned on a thread a few weeks ago and there aren't any (that I know of) in the country I live in. I decided 2 weeks ago that I really needed to make some lifestyle changes, so I've started by replacing two meals with just fruits and veggies, drinking "slim fast" in the afternoon, and having a 'normal' dinner... but after 2 weeks I'm struggling again and feeling the desire to eat everything in sight!

It's so tough

I want to lower my BMI and get into better shape as I've been told that could reduce my risk of having a 2nd c-section (and I'm desperate for a VBAC!) so I really need to get my act together.

My BMI is 34

In a perfect world, I'd like to lose about 45 lbs (to start). But on my TTC journey I'd be happy with starting at 15 lbs (last time I was pregnant I lost another 10 in the first trimester due to 'morning sickness'). It feels impossible

I need to join! I just had my thyroid tested today to see if I have an issue there, but if I don't--I need to kick this weight!

I never had a hard time with losing weight until this past year. I keep losing and gaining the same few pounds no matter what I try. I'm at 212 and want to be 175 (my first goal) and then I'll go from there. I was 165 and fit when I got pregnant with my son 8 years ago. I'm not meant to be super thin.

Welcome Itsychik, ebonymama and Momof2TTC! I have added you to the list, lets hope our first week goes well and brings us closer to ttc

If I have missed anybody please message me, I hope I am keeping up! So good to know we are all aiming for the same goal: a healthy Mum with a new baby.

So 13.5lb to go!
Another amazing loss! I have been really inspired and motivated so far by you all. Slimming World certainly has some success stories! I will add you to the list with a goal of 13.5. x
Thanks Yes SW is the best ever 'diet' Its my lifestyle of cooking/eating from habit now. best thing i did. Last pregnancy i was like 292lbs this time i wont be when we do get pregnant i also hope to STS or still lose as realistically got about 4stone left to lose! x
I am not sure where I went wrong with SW :/ I was advised to do green as I do not eat meat or fish but people doing the new version were losing loads! I must look for my pack. You sound like you have really turned a corner, like you say it is about lifestyle change. x
Yeah i do the Extra Easy one. (meats aswell as potatoes etc allowed together) thats how i lost it x

Hi,
Can I join this group please?
I have been doing Slimming World since February this year. So far I have lost 2 stone and 4.5 pounds. Still have another 3 and a bit stone to lose!
Me and hubby are ttc our first.This is our second cycle of trying. In the dreaded tww at the mo!
We didn't start trying until I had lost 10% of my weight (which was in April).
Can't wait until my BMI gets down into the healthy range!
Gone down three clothe sizes so far!
Good luck to everyone. :-)

Oooh! I would like to join! I've been holding steady at my current weight (which is way way way too much and unhealthy and I could use the motivation from every possible angle!)

I think a healthy goal would be 50 lbs..for now! (I can always add to that later!)
