    Hi ladies,
    I'm 27 years old, my DH 29, married for 2.5 years...TTC baby #1.
    Before marriage, I weighed 116 Lbs and gained a lot of weight later.

    Currently I weigh 132 Lbs and I'm aiming to lose 10. I started in May and I was 134 Lbs, so I have reduced 2 Lbs already. I am looking for buddies who are in the same state as me so that I get motivated and get to know what methods everyone else use to reduce weight. Thanks in advance!

    Hi!!
    I am currently in my tww, but also trying to shed a few pounds at same time! Goal is 11 more lbs, but would be happy with 6lbs. I have lost 1.5lbs in 3 days so far. I basically do carb cycle and only eat carbs every other day. Other days are fruit/veggies meat. Then carb day is pasta/bread. I did this a few months ago and lost 4lbs in 1 month, but then moved and had to do fast food etc for 2wks since everything was packed!!
    I tend to gain an extra 10lbs each pregnancy so i hope to not do that this time and stay under 40lbs lmao!
    Love to do this with you! Today was my no carb day.

    Awesome! thanks for joining me dear :)

    I am a vegetarian Indian. I love pasta, and also found out that durum wheat pasta increases fertility in women! So I eat a bowl of pasta for lunch 2-3 times a week (no butter no cheese no bottled sauces)

    I eat rice with lentil soup/wheat bread (Indian Roti) every alternate day.

    My breakfast is usually on the heavier side, light lunch and lighter dinner. I have a small glass of milk or tea (with milk) in the evening before dinner.

    I include 1 banana/orange/berries in my food everyday.

    I perform yoga for 20 mins daily morning and go for 2 mile walk everyday in the evening along with household chores as I am Stay at home wife.

    So with your rice and pasta, you should make that on the same day. Cut out the soup all together because its got sodium that you can avoid.
    Fruit daily is great! I can't think of protein to use for vegan. Hard boiled eggs are great to add to diet.
    What is a heavy breakfast?

    Yoga is so relaxing!!!

    Losing weight in a healthy way so we don't gain it all back, is a lot of work...but worth it!

    Yikes, it will be really hard to drop lbs with those meals. As we age our body holds onto things we shouldn't have a lot of and we can't eat like we used to in our 20's or younger.

    Almost all of those have carbs. Basically you can't have bread/rice/wheat every other day. I think maybe 2 of those were carb free.

    It would be a big change to try and accommodate that every other day.

    Hopefully you can do it!

    Haha.. I cannot change that habit because that's what my mother, grandmother, great grand mother and everyone else ate all along their lives and all of them didn't have any kind of health issues, like diabetes or blood pressure or heart problems. All were healthy until death. My mother is 58 years old and she is healthy too.

    That's our staple. So it doesn't harm.

    My problems are with sweet items. I have a sweet tooth and I eat a lot of chocolates, cookies and ice creams. I'm working on it. I have stopped adding sugar in my beverages. And stopped eating chocolates. I haven't cut on ice creams completely. I will soon do it too. :)

    Yeah sugar!!! I hate it when I control all day and give in in the night... I seriously am very bad at sweet cravings.. I generally get cravings before my period starts, and during period. I feel like eating ice creams for breakfast lunch dinner LOL

    The best option is to not have it in the house at all! Then it forces you to grab a fruit to get your sugars. Hahaha
    4 kids here an NO ice cream, candy, deserts etc in the house. Might go 1x a week for ice cream shop parlor, but thats all.
