I have been so frustrated with my weight. I guess my body really liked the idea of being pregnancy because it is holding on to every ounce. I've been eating very healthy and working out 4-5 days a week for 4 weeks now and haven't lost a single ounce!!! I guess it's time to really start focusing on my portion sizes to make sure I'm not accidentally over eating even though it's all mostly healthy food. It's now been 6 weeks for me since the miscarriage/surgery and I've finished my first regular AF, so I'm hoping by now all my hormones have regulated and this weight will start moving!

Ugh that sounds so frustrating carro and believe me i know what ur talking about:)) even though I was pregnant(can't believe im typing This) for a short while i gained 8-10lbs and im struggling with eating healthy and stop eating sugary snacks.
Im 150lbs now and i want to lose like 8-10lbs before I start another FET cycle.Besides playing around with my dog I don't do much exercise,im very,very,very lazy lol.

Dana, yayy!! Happy to hear you're seeing some progress. I'm been bouncing between 178-180 for the past like 4-5 weeks :oops: . But, for the past couple of days I've at least been steady at around 178, so I'm hoping I'm going to start making some progress soon! I had a good workout today and healthy meals so far. My goal for the next week is to cut out most of my snacks. Even though I usually choose healthy snacks (mostly hummus with veggies or larabars) sometimes I do realize that I'm eating because I'm bored or anxious instead of hungry. So I'm going to try cutting out snack and hopefully that will get the scale moving some!

I'm the same,I eat if I'm bored or sad or happy,basically i eat my emotions,what I did to stop snacking as much i started eating bananas,apples and grapes and i added hot chocolate into my daily routine.Honestly whiteout bananas I don't think I would of made it this far with my diet.
I haven't been doing too good with my snack choices either bcs i have been having chocolate crepes and a croissant:)) God they are so delicious.
Losing weight is hard when ur body is going trough all sorts of hormonal stages.
We can do this and we will!!

Oh Dan I love the idea of hot chocolate! I used to have that regularly as sort of an evening treat. Maybe I need to bring that back. I thi k it makes sense to plan for a mindful treat to help cut out the more mindless snacking.

So weighed myself this morning ans was 177! I finally lost one pound! Hopefully we can both keep this momentum going.

I've always wanted to be a fit mom too! I keep trying to tell myself it's never too late and just keep trying to get there one little but at a time. The first few weeks of pregnancy are the hardest! There's so my anxiety and unknown, plus your hormones are going crazy. I was the same way in the early weeks until the nausea hit, and then that was a whole other issue. But every pregnancy can be different too!

So I have to admit, I broke down last night and had a bit of a binge. It was just so frustrated that I've been working so hard and seeing such little results and ended up eating my feelings. Oh well. I started off today with a healthy breakfast and a hard workout and just had a salad for lunch. Trying to not let my binge derail me and reminding myself that even if I don't lose weight that eating healthy will help prepare my body for pregnancy.

Hey Dana! Sorry it's been so long since I've checked in. I've seen on other boards that you are pregnant with twins and I just wanted to come congratulate you!! I'm so happy for you and praying for you and your babies!

I've finally lost the 5lbs I gained from being pregnant/having the miscarriage so I'm feeling pretty good. Still a good 20-30 pounds away from an udea ttc weight, but at least I'm back down to a weight I know I can get pregnant at. I've been sticking to mostly paleo style eating and working out 3-5 times a week and it seems to work for me (slowly, but that's ok!). I just had family in town for a week and ate sooooooooo many treats and didn't work out at all, my body is craving my old routine so I'm looking forward to switching back. Right now I'm in the tww on my 3rd cycle trying post miscarriage. Mostly just trying to stay busy and relaxed. I'm trying Brazil nuts to aid implantation and keeping my exercise intensity low. Fingers crossed.
