    Hi! This thread is brilliant, thanks for starting it up! I am pretty fit but let myself go after a missed miscarriage in July. I think the grief took IRS course in junk food and n exercise :-( worst thing possible of course and I knew it at the time but....

    Anyway, I am newly pregnant and energized again :-) can I ask though:
    1. I am 65 kilos and 5 foot 7. I think 60 - 62 is a better weight for me. Is it ok to lose weight in early pregnancy if it's done healthily?
    2. Although I used to be very fit I havent done proper exercise for a while, only shortish walks. Can I get back into body pump classes, pilates and swimming? The are all low impact. I think I will stay with walking rather than starting to run at this stage
    3. Is a mainly vego diet ok in pregnancy? I seem to have gone off meat...

    Thanks ladies

    Hi Artful "waves" I am finding doing exercise is easy - when I have the energy! Last few days have been tough cravings wise as I feel hungry all the time but for all the naughty junk foods ;-( had today off, back & running/jogging again on treadmill tomorrow

    That all sounds great to me! Just let your instructor know you are PG of course... I am sure a veggie diet is fine as long as you are getting enough iron. And I would say that losing weight by eating healthier and exercise is always fine, no matter if you are pregnant or not! Just no silly dieting.

    I am trying ;-) after working my butt off over the last year to lose all the baby weight from both girls I really don't want to put on much and also can't as I had two reconstructive surgeries (down stairs) and was told if we were to have more it would have to be via c-section ;-(

    Hey ladies. DHs tennis club is desperate for a fill in and I wasn't sure if that would be ok? I'm reasonably fit but haven't played tennis in years!

    I think the actual level of activity is fine if you're reasonably fit but if you're out of practice I would be worried about stray tennis balls flying at me!!

    Lol I didn't think of that but a very very valid point with my lack of co-ordination!
