    PT after doing a night shift sucks. I fell off the food wagon (biscuits at work) but down to 80.8kgs... so excited for that 79 to pop up on the scales. 4.5kg loss! (5.39%)

    Default Losing KG instead of TTC

    Hi ladies, I'm now TTC but last year I was in the same boat as many of you. I was overweight, had put on way more than my pre-pregnancy weight, felt depressed, low confidence, low self esteem and I actually dreaded starting ttc because (1) I felt so disgusted with my body and I didn't want to dtd with DH because of it, and (2) I was terrified of putting on even more weight after bub #2.

    Height 163cm
    My starting weight was 75kg
    My goal weight was 55kg
    Current weight 60kg
    Weight loss to date 15kg

    And I lost this weight in a period of 4 months (actually I lost it all in 13 weeks but then gained a few kgs when I went overseas for a month, then went back down to 60 after less than a week back home)...

    Why am I telling you this? Because I know how you feel and I want you all to have the same sort of success as I did, and feel amazing about yourselves and give yourselves the best chance of successful ttc -

    I've read on this thread that a lot of you have a physical goal of exercising most days of the week but haven't mentioned much about diet- well I spent years focusing on exercise and being a gym junkie and I still couldn't shift my weight unless I was on an extreme fad diet. Now I subscribe to one rule and everything else falls into place:

    EAT CLEAN

    If you eat clean food every day, cut out all processed food and sugar, and eat regularly (every 3 hrs) and start with a big protein filled breakfast and gradually reduce meal sizes through the day, drink lots of water, limit your carbs (but not cut them out - you need carbs like rye bread, quinoa, sweet potato), and drink a glass of water with 1/2 a lemon squeezed in every morning, you will 100% achieve your goals and much faster than you think - AND here's the kicker / you don't need to exercise!

    Of course exercise is good for you but a lot of people make the mistake of working out really hard and then loading up on too much food or not eating enough and then going into starvation mode which basically means you store everything you eat as fat.

    The other thing I highly recommend is using myfitnesspal to keep a record of all the food you've eaten. You can
    Also add your own meals and recipes and it will calculate your caloric intake, fat, sugar, protein etc.

    If you want to really see awesome results, you should join ASHY BINES clean eating. Forget what the haters say, this pic is living proof that it works (the pics on the left were taken in april 2012 but i only started clean eating in october 2012). And the women on the forum are so motivational and supportive.

    Good luck ladies, hope you all achieve your goals and get your bfp when you decide you are ready to start ttc xxx

    Me me me!

    Height: 163cms
    Starting weight: 62kgs
    Goal weight: 56kgs
    Weight loss so far: 0
    Weight loss%: 0

    Physical challenges: none - I'm just a bit unmotivated.

    Emotional challenges: I'm a major stress head! I suffer anxiety and am an emotional eater. I get into a vicious cycle of being stressed -> too tired to exercise -> no exercise so I might as well indulge -> I are too much, I feel crappy and fat -> I'm so tired - this is too hard blah blah blah.

    I'm working on work life balance and coming off the pill has really helped my anxiety.

    Small win: got to the gym 4 times last week and had great workouts!

    Here's to our weightloss journey LittleLadyBug!!! What's your plan?

    Starting weight - 104kg
    Current weight - 93kg
    Goal weight - 70kg

    Emotional challenges - i just love food lol! Even though i am overweight for my height i am very healthy, normal BP, normal thyroid, no diabetes etc.

    I am off to the naturopath on Friday to get my vitamin levels etc checked and to start a pre-natal vitamin.
