Losing weight while ttc?

I need to lose about 60lbs. But I'm also ttc as I'm late 30s and don't want to waste whatever fertile time I have left! What's the best way to lose weight that won't affect my cycles? Weight watchers? I'm already trying to make healthy choices and eat less but the weight isn't shifting. I'm slightly hypothyroid and have mild pcos so that doesn't help. I definitely do easier following a plan rather than being left to my own devices. Any advice would be great thanks 😊

I think slimming world has a programme for pregnant women so you could follow that while Ttc and hopefully through pregnancy. Or have a look at a low gi diet, you could even read up on gestational diabetes diet and take ideas from that.

I was overweight before my dd and ds's pregnancies and struggled for a long time to conceive. I lost weight both times and bam! Pregnant 😂 so weight and fertility are definitely related.

Best of luck 😊

PS I should say that I have absolutely no knowledge of slimming world or what kind of diet/recipes it is but I have seen it mentioned for pregnancy.
