Trying to Get Pregnant

I'm committing to losing 10 lbs...

...before my 1st IUI.  I'm guessing I have about a month or so, so I'll try my best without actually "dieting".  I just want to be healthier.  I've actually gained back roughly 25 pounds since my wedding day 1+ year ago (I had lost the weight for my wedding). I'd be super excited if I could shed some pounds.

Of course, once I have the IUI I don't necessarily have to stop trying to lose weight.  I'm just trying to keep my goals modest for now so that I won't feel overwhelmed.

Anyone else trying to lose some weight? 

Re: I'm committing to losing 10 lbs...

  • Dropping 10 lbs in a month is the exact opposite of healthy. The only way to achieve it is through a crash diet, which will cause you more issues than doing it correctly over time.

    I need to get back to it, but am setting realistic, reachable goals.

  • I would love to lose around 10 lbs. I'd be happy with 1 lb a week.

    Really?  I thought losing between 1 to 2.5 pounds per week is healthy and anything more than that is too much.  If you consider there are 4.3 weeks in a month that makes up to nearly 11 pounds.  Anyway, whatever the number of pounds, I'll be doing it in a healthy way.  I can set my goal to 10 pounds and if I don't reach that, it's ok.  As long as I start eating healthier and getting more active!

  • 1-2 is considered healthy. 1 is usually the better goal unless you are of a higher starting weight (judging by your siggy pic and even adding 25 lbs to that, you are not).And quit counting partial weeks. It's 4 weeks. 4x1=4. I'll even spot you a couple weeks at 2 lbs. That means 6 lbs, not 10.

    You should also be more focused on your overall health, not the number on the scale. Those numbers can be deceiving and discouraging.

  • I really need to lose weight. I have started incorporating more veggies and  really watch my portion controls. I really need to get my butt to the gym and stop falling into the cravings for chocolate!
  • Lol...darn those raisinets and Halloween candy.  I have such a sweet tooth.  

  • Good luck and don't listen to those who try and cut you down. Stay healthy, stay active!
  • Good Luck! :)

    I was between a size 6 and 8 when I got married... I quit smoking shortly after that and went up to a size 14 and now, 2 years later, I'm back to a size 10. It's taken me about 10 months to lose 15 pounds. I just make sure I eat well and I run on the treadmill at least 5 times a week and do yoga. I feel a little better about myself.

    Congrats on your accomplishments! I know it's hard. 

  • I'm working on getting healthier, too.

    I recently rejoined a gym (spent an hour there today :) ) and started entering what I eat in the daily plate at livestrong.org again.

    I'm hoping to lose about 8 lbs by Christmas, though I'd settle for losing less in exchange for some toning.

  • Good luck! I wish I could commit to it. I was actually going to join a gym and someone told me theres no sense in trying to lose weight right before the holidays, youll gain it right back. Indifferent  I am still considering joining the gym.

  • me & 2 other girls at work are having a 'race to lose 10 lbs' contest, the trick is we have  to keep it off to win! i lost about 30 lbs a few years ago, and was able to keep it off, and in the last 6 months or so, ive gained about 15, its so frustrating when you know you can do lose it, for me its just a matter of motivation and getting back into the healthier eating mind set!

  • me. I've been doing the south beach diet and alternating a 3 mile walk with the 30 day shred. For now, thats working out best for me. Back to back nights of Jillian would probably lead to my stay in a hospital..lol.

  • I hear ya sister!!  I used to be fantastic about going to the gym at 4:30AM and working out until 6:00. I went with a friend that made it very easy!  No she isnt as motivated, and I am following down her path.  I have lost over 50 pounds within the last two years, and my hesitations about pregnancy again, is the weight gain!  Good luck and stay strong  ;)

  • I'm a lifetime member of WW, but it has been harder keeping at my goal weight lately.  I started working out again and eating better this week, and I noticed I do have much more energy, which is nice.

  • I've put on about 15 pounds since our wedding last year, I'd like to lose at least 10 of them.  I feel that getting back to a healthier weight will help with TTC when we are ready, and since we aren't getting started for about 9months I should be able to reach my goal. 

     GL to everyone!

    This is me! Got married last October and have put almost the same as you back on. It's so frustrating. I told DH just this morning that I don't feel like myself. I think we're going to start training for a half marathon, which is partly how I lost the weight last year (along with Weight Watchers).

    1-2 lbs is a healthy rate. If you cut back on calorie intake you will probably see a slightly bigger loss in the first week. 10 lbs in a month could be tough, especially if you aren't planning on dieting, but as long as you are feeling/being healthier that's the most important thing!
