    Hi

    WOW i need to lose 48lb! So far i have lost 5.5lb in last couple of weeks, so on my way. Its gonna be a long road but if a baby comes at the end of it, it will be worth it.

    Anyone else need to lose this kind of weight? Want to help each other?

    hi kaye !

    when i started my dieting journey for conceiving in january i needed to lose roughly 4-5 stone. and have lost 32lb so far in 6 months !! its been a nightmare at times with having an underactive thyroid and CFS/ME but i couldnt agree more that as long as a baby comes out at the end of it , it will all have been amazingly worth while :flower:

    xx

    Hi Kaye! Add me to your list... I am trying to lose 100 lb. by this time next year. I know it sounds unrealistic, but I figure since I have lost 25 lbs. since Feb, then about 8 lbs a month would get me to my goal! My doc laughed when I told him that this morning, and told me that 2 lbs a month was more realistic, but whatever! I'm gonna try to prove him wrong!

    My routine since Feb. is not to go over about 1000 to 1200 calories a day, almost no carbs or sugar, and hitting the gym up for an hour a day 5-6 days a week. For lunch I usually have a tuna kit or a small salad and practically LIVE off of Lean Cusine's for supper! And NO eating after 7 p.m.! If I get hungry between meals, I eat fruit or some pork skins. My biggest challenge so far has been letting go of the sodas and sugar. Mostly I drink sugar free apple juice or water, and limit myself to one diet soda a day...

    LOADS of good luck to you and keep us posted! (And sorry for such a long post!)

    Aww good luck ladies.

    SND80, i think your goal is within reach, i think if you aim 1-2lb a week, thats a healthy weight loss. That is my aim. I have joined slimming world which i really enjoy so far, i also eat alot of fruit, mullerlight yoghurts and lean meats.

    Maybe we can use this thread to note our weight loss. I get weighed on thursday evenings

    I try not to weigh every week though.... I weigh about once a month. Today I weighed at the dr. and had lost 3 lbs since 5/10... would have been more, but hubby was in the hospital for 2 weeks that kept us outta the gym...

    I've never heard of Slimming World? Kinda like Weight Watchers? Fill me in!

    Slimming world is great, i follow the extra easy diet. Basically you can eat all leans meats (bacon, steak, chicken, turkey, extra lean mince, veal, pork, gammon, lamb and also fish) just remove all the fat and there good to eat. All fruit & vegatables too and you should fill your plate with a third of speed foods which is most veg, salad and fruit.
    You can have potatoes, pasta and rice. Just stay away from anything processed and jars sauces etc.
    They have a webiste, you should take a look its very easy to follow, nothing to weight etc www.slimmingworld.com is the link i think

    I've got to loose 33lb before I get referred. My husband has azoospermia possibly caused by a operation for undesended testicles when he was 2. Although I can understand I need to loose weight to better my chances. All they have done for my husband is a semen analysis. They haven't looked into whether they could repair the damage, his results are similar to what you would expect a vasectomy patient to have. He gets a swelling above one of his testicles too which we believe to be the sperm building up when he eventually passes the sperm it's yellowish and dead. He had some pain in his groin a few years ago and he was told he had a blocked sperm tube and was given antibiotics I am going back to my gp to try and get them to look further into the problem. Fingers crossed.

    I feel frustrated that because of my weight they won't look into my husbands problem further. I am healthy, don't smoke and apparently there is nothing wrong with me, so why not see if they can fix the problem rather than putting us through ivf.

    Lost 19lbs since Xmas and have another 21 to go.... It's hard work and demoralising sometimes but will be worth it.

    Has your husband been to the GP himself and demanded help. My doctor seems to be really sympathetic to my hubby when he went in. He has had 2 analysis done.

    You would think they would look into the fact there is blockage maybe and how to unblock it, this might be alot easier then ivf.
    Good luck and keep us updated :)

    I've rang the doctor today but the close at 1 so can't get an appointment for him today. Will have to try again tomorrow. My husbands doctor is really unsympathetic just told us to go get private ivf and that was it. My doctor is a specialist in fertility so I have asked her to call me this afternoon and if she will do something I will ask my husband to move doctors. It really annoys me that my husbands doctor dismissed us so quickie especially when he is the one with the problem. This is also the same doctor he has seen all his life & the one who dealt with his undecended testicle. Apparently the money for ivf comes from gp's so that's maybe why they aren't so keen and try and push you to go private. I'm going to insist he sees a urologist while I'm loosing weight. I can't sit back and do nothing for 5 months while I loose weight.

    If you've got a iPhone there's an app called target weight, track weight loss how many days left, bmi I find it quite motivating and it's free too!
