I will join you as I need to start somewhere too. I am currently on clomid as I am not ovulating and have put on half a stone in the last two months and feel horrendous, not being able to conceive naturally is just so awful and the stress has caused me to binge eat
Glad slimming world has worked for you, I think I am just going to try calorie counting/trying to stop overeating!
I can't imagine how stressful it must be for you What methods have you tried? Sorry for being nosey, I'm just reading Taking charge of Your Fertility - had the book about 2 years and never read it!! xx
I am ridiculously overweight - I estimate that I'm about 19 stone!! I am sticking to this sw plan rigidly though so shouldn't take much more than a year to get right down to a better weight. I'm not expecting to conceive in the next 12 months anyhow as my cycle is quite absent due to depo provera. Should probably see my nurse about it actually.
I was about 15 and a half stone at my heaviest and I am 5' ish so very obese. I am still fat but now within 10lbs or so of just overweight not obese and I'm in a size 14/16 now so can shop at normal shops. It's very worth it!
I'm sure you can do it! Very good decision to get on track with it now and nipping it in the bud. I wish if have done that - wouldn't be a size 24 now lol. I got bigger after each of my 3 children!! So I blame them
Thanks cherry. Yeah thats the plan! Im only 5ft so putting on weight is very noticeable and seems to make me look fat quickly Dh is diet daft which is good. If i married someone that didnt care about what they ate i would probably be huge!!
Hi everyone! I too am trying to lose weight whilst ttc, I think my weight might be the issue with not conceiving, I thought I could get away with it as I was heavier than I am now when I had my daughter, but I have been trying for 7 months so far with no luck. I am 5'4 and 13 stone so could do with losing about 3 stone. I just love my food too much and turn to it as a comfort when I'm feeling down or stressed..so when ttc!! Well done with your diet so far cherrypie!! Starlight that is encouraging news, and congratulations!
