Welcome!!! I'd write more but I'm only on a break at work!Hi Lovely Ladies
Thought I would jump in on this thread. looks like the place for me.
I have had weight issues for a long time, I have been over 100kgs now for 13years. My highest recorded weight was 175kgs... which at 21, was one of the lowest points in my life. I worked hard and lost 20kgs, which I have managed to keep off but stopped when I couldnt see the difference. That was 6 years ago now... Since then I have discovered I have PCOS and am insulin resistant. I was put on diabex but found i just felt sick alot. Losing faith in doctors and medications i took myself off and went about my life for the past 18 months.
Now I am pregnant.(Very big surprise!!). My instant concern was the effects and risks was weight can/will/may have on my pregnancy and baby. The doctor has given me the green light to lose weight under his supervision during my pregnancy.
First weigh in at 6weeks pregnant: 152.8kgs
Weight at 9 weeks: 148.4kgs
weight at 10 weeks(NOW): 148.1kgs
I work fulltime 8.30-5.30 mon-fri (am on my feet 95% of the day, and my job requires alot of squating, climbing ladders, walking back and forth and I also wear the Portland Get Fit shoes), have 2 older children and live 35kms out of town. My food intake isnt excessive, but admittedly I really do like the lunchtime fast foods. Have been cutting down, and have cut sugar/soft drinks out pretty much completely... I dont have the time in the mornings to exercise, (seriously not a morning person and 6.30 is early enough!!) yet after work I really dont have the energy.
Help!! Any suggestions??
Sorry for the long rant!!If you have read this far I appreciate it.
Wishing you all the best with your weight loss journey!
