    I'd guess I'm about the same, maybe more like 30kg - however, she said 10kg for me & thinks that's what's needed. She's referred me to a dietician as she felt my physical activity was okay. Between us though, I think my diet is on the healthy/ controlled side (low sugar, lots of whole foods etc), so I'm just going to up my exercise bc it's probably plateaued my weight. Will be interesting to see what the dietician says though!

    She also said that she can only help women who have a BMI under 35, as there's only a 50% chance of meds working & increased likelihood of requiring a C-section, if over that. So as long as you're a healthy BMI (25?), or aim to be!

    I'm 5'3 and currently sitting at 92 eeek. Trying to lose it by diet, but I'm not very active. Hate is a strong word, but that's how I feel about exercise lol.

    I was heavy with my son, and ended up with a c-section, but I was induced and strapped to a bed, so I blame that lol

    I am overweight too and actively loosing it. So far I'm down 17kg since January and just over 20kg lighter from when I fell pregnant with ds. I am wanting to drop about another 10/15kg I will still be in that overweight category but I know I will feel better. I've lost over 150cm from my body too, 3 dress sizes and have heaps more energy-mostly.

    Do give up ladies, just look at the big picture, my aim is to continue my lifestyle program once pregnant just not in a weight loss capacity but to ensure I'm eating healthy and getting the nutrients I need. I'm not saying all this to be preachy but it can be done! Mostly my only exercise is incidental stuff and chasing mr almost 3.

    I was induced with ds and there was no talk of c-sections thankfully though I did have to deliver at a specialist women's hospital as my bmi was too high.

    Good luck!

    I've always heard that weight loss is 90% diet and 10% exercise.

    I find it easier to lose weight when I'm not exercising. When I exercise, the weight doesn't budge as easily

    I agree with this... 3 years ago, I lost 10kg in 13 weeks by just counting calories and walking 3-5 times a week 3-5km while pushing my girls in a double pram (so pushing 40kg)!! Had you told me counting calories would work I would have laughed! But it did for me... I have the Michelle Bridges books which are amazing but she says that basically she has two types of clients - the ones that work out 7 days a week and eat whatever the want to when they want too, and the ones that only work out say 2-3 times a week and watch their diet - and the ones that lose the most weight are the ones who are actively eating healthy with less exercise - and I fully agree!

    I also want to get back into Yoga as a starting point again too - I loved it!

    *ETA: totally appreciate that this method doesn't work for everyone!

    I prefer the cheapies to can test twice a day if need be

    Same although they can vary a lot. Used two different ones this morning (one blue one green), and one had a much darker line. Think it will be positive tonight or tomorrow. Just enough time to get over this gold and BD a couple of times!
