TTC and losing weight-anyone else?

AF arrives two weeks late this month-meaning that despite BFNs I had totally gotten my hopes up.

Anyhow, I've decided to use the next month to really focus on me! I have been putting off losing weight for ages, and I am going to focus on losing half a stone in June. This will not only make me feel better, but should also be beneficial in TTC.

I am just going to follow a healthy diet (keeping track with myfitnesspal) and move more.

Is anyone else in?

My AF was a month late and was just light spotting. I was already quite overweight and have gained 2 stone this year blush sad
I know I need to lose weight to stand any chance of ovulating. I'm in!

I'm in too. I've got a stone to lose and i guess we're just winging it ttc. The diet starts Monday!

I've lost 1stone but would ideally like to loose another 2 if I can. I didn't realise how important BMI is until I've read up on ttc and pregnancy. Good luck ladies!

I'm excited to have started. I managed to have fruit at 11 today instead of my usual breakfast. I am also going to do 30 mins of exercise everyday (even if it's just brisk walking). I am determined!! Good luck girls!

Can I join too please? I have about 3 stone to lose in total but I want to take it one step at a time. Would like to concieve asap but will try to make some changes while I am doing it. I am going to start jogging next week. I feel a bit like it's my last chance!

Welcome Lamby! Have you started! I'm on day 2 and feel good! I feel motivated for the first time in ages. I'm not going to weigh myself-just use myfitnesspal and use my clothes as a judge!

I've been doing this 7 minute workout in the mornings before I go to work. You can do it in your pjs and it fekking works lol

I've rejoined Scottish slimmers tonight. I need the group meetings and weigh ins to stay on track. I've actually 1 1/2 stones to my goal weight but seems like it'll take ages. I want to have a baby but I'm worried how much weight I'll gain, I've lost 2 stones already and don't want to end up where I was. I'm 5'2 so can't hide weight gain well add to that hubby is still not sure he's ready hmm and gah!

Lamby80 Tue 02-Jun-15 23:04:54

No, I didn't start today but will tomorrow. I did have good meals but also some bad snacks! I will weigh in Friday and report back. I need to stay on track this time. How are you all getting on?
I have 6 week cycles so 3 weeks to wait to find if we were successful this time around. It's going to be a long wait.......

I've been eating well but not much exercise yet due to a small injury. Hopefully the eating will make a start and I'll be exercising by the weekend!

Lamby80 Thu 04-Jun-15 08:19:19

Morning everyone! How are you all doing? I'm a but fed up. Even though I haven't been exercising, I have been cutting down on portions and cutting out crap snacks and I have put on 1lb! I think I am going to have to stick to a diet plan which I really didn't want to do, I wish I could just eat better and it work! I have tried slimming world but I didn't stick to it so thinking of giving my fitness pal another go. Has anyone had any luck with this?

can I join in? I'm starting to TTC again in a few days following a mmc in march. I'd like to lose a few more pounds to make sure I'm safely within my healthy bmi range.

Lamby I lost half a stone using fitness pal a couple of years ago; it works if you're honest! makes you more aware of the whole energy in/ energy out balance. it drove me crazy in the end though because I started obsessing over it, plus it annoyed the hell out of my OH!

last year I managed to lose (and mostly keep off) a stone by making small sustainable changes to my diet inspired by (but not sticking religiously to) "2 weeks in the fast lane" and a book about dieting for carb lovers. mainly this has involved cutting down drastically on carbs and trying to only eat them with one meal per day. typically I have fruit and fat free Greek yogurt for brekkie (or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on the weekend), for lunch either a healthy sandwich on wholemeal bread OR a large salad OR an omelette OR soup. Dinner depends on what I've had for lunch - carby lunch = salad or meat and veggies for dinner; no carb lunch = wholemeal rice/ pasta/ sweet potato/ noodle dish (keeping to smallish portion of carb). snacks are dried fruit or low fat hummus and peppers. most things are low fat versions of food where available and I do have some treats at the weekend. This has really worked for me (along with running/other good exercise a couple of times a week). And I think it's a healthy enough diet for trying to conceive. once pregnant I'll probably reintroduce a few more carbs to make sure I'm giving the baby everything it needs and enough calories.

Welcome SinIck! Sorry about your mmc.
I've lost 3 lbs but I've been really really strict. I'm using myfitnesspal.
I'm thinning of getting rid of my scales though as I think how you feel in your clothes is a much better indicator of weight loss.
I find weekend difficult though!!!!
