Hey ladies, I so far have lost 5 lbs, and want to lose 5 more to reach my first goal. I go to the gym every 5 days for 1 hr then take a day off and so on. I mostly do cardio and Zumba. I only eat 3 meals a day, no snacks and wont eat anything past 8. I am doing it slow, 1 lb a week, to be healthy still and not starve myself. I also do enjoy some junk food here and there, mostly on weekends and on wknds I will not eat past 9. GL to all you ladies.

**I have also stopped drinking alcohol, especially beer. I keep a food journal as well.

The reasons why I want to lose weight:
-Be healthy (change my lifestyle to a healthier one)
-Not have to lose too much weight after I have baby (hoping to get pregnant soon)
-More energy (especially when kids come)
-Teach future kids to be healthy

That is great! You have a great fitness plan. I think you will be able to lose 5 more pounds soon!

Thx MomWife, I hope so too. After that, if I dont get pregnant (which I hope I do) I will start working on a little pack (6 pack is what I mean, but not like a man's one), lol, either that or lose 5 more lbs and then work on a pack. Depends on how I feel and how my body feels.

The diet is shakes, soups, meal packs and bars, I get 4 a day and then on top of that have a milk allowance (for my tea, I can't survive without tea) and 200g of veg, but there is a specific list so can't just have any veg. The meal packs come in flavours like cottage pie and chicken curry...I would describe them as thick soups! Lol I had cottage pie last night, it wasn't too bad, think I'll try curry tonight. Really really tired today, I think partly its due to my son getting me up early alot recently and the diet. Need an early night I think.

Well done everyone on your losses!!! You are doing brilliantly!! xx

Everyone is doing an awesome job! I have to admit I "cheated" on my low carb eating style last night.. I was hungry and wanted raisin bran and milk. Seriously, who eats that to CHEAT?! I guess I do.. lame!

Cookie, that doesn't sound as bad as I originally thought haha! It would definitely be tough though! Good luck! Hopefully getting a little extra sleep helped you.

I am excited to say that we rode our bikes last night.. only for a little bit and with a lot of sweating and some huffing and puffing.. (Boy are we out of shape! lol but in our defense it is hot outside..), but we did it. And we don't feel too rough this morning SO he doesn't know it yet, but we are going again tonight for a little ride. Baby steps.

I'm also excited because I'm on the downhill side of my first really big big goal. I've lost a little over half! I've never lost this much weight in my life, and granted 34.2 pounds isn't a TON, but it's a pretty good sized chunk. I feel like every pound is a little closer to maybe being able to get pregnant. I got pregnant last time at anywhere between here and 5 pounds less (Yay! That means I've lost all but 5 pounds of my baby weight!! I am thrilled!)

If I do manage to get pregnant though, I'll stop trying to lose weight and add a few more carbs back in. That's what I did last time. My doctor told me I could continue to lose weight while I was pregnant, but I was afraid to do that intentionally.

That is a great amount to lose frsttimemama, you should be very proud of yourself...and so close to your pre preg weight!!

I've got about 21 lbs to get back to my pre pregnancy weight, I have been there a couple of times since I had my son, but I tend to get there and then the weight starts creeping back on, I think I stop trying abit too quickly.

If I manage to fall I really need to follow a healthy eating plan, there is one over here called Slimming World which I was following recently, its approved by midwives so I'd really need to join and do that to stop me gaining like I did in my pregnancy with my son...I put on 4 stone (56 lbs) and I was told off and sent to see a consultant. Oops!!!

Thank you! I also need to do a little better next time around to not gain so much.. but since my weight was not my problem last time, I'm not going to stress about it too much.

Yeh to be fair my weight gain didn't cause any problems...but what I didn't like was the fact that I avoided cameras, so there aren't really any pictures of me and my son cos I hated how fat I got. So for that reason I want to try not to gain too much next time, if there is a next time. On one hand I want to think positive but on the other I dont want to get my hopes up!

Me too, but next time I will not avoid cameras. Take our picture and document this baby I'm going to say! I have to be positive because I have no living children, and I can't imagine not having any.. so for my own wellbeing, I am going with "when" and not "if". Just praying when is soon!
