Hey ladies. I haven't been around for a while. I've been kind of bummed. A lot of my weight problem is because I have an endocrine disease and it makes it very hard for me to lose weight. That same disease makes pregnancy dangerous. I got some bad news from the doctor and thought baby plans were done, but I found out that I can still get pregnant but I would be high-risk so I'm not as bummed anymore.

Do either of you use the weight tracker they have on FF?

AshHole--welcome back! Happy to hear that pregnancy isn't out of the question for you--will just require serious monitoring...BUT at least you know that up front so you can prepare.

As for me--I have never tried the weight tracker on FF. I'm currently doing WW so I track everything on there.

Ladies,

I just wanted to give you all some hope.. In the past I tried a weight loss program and it worked well after getting off the plan and gaining about 40+ more lbs I was able to get back on with the endorsement from my OB and his strong "you need to lose weight to achieve being healthy and a healthy pregnancy" I'm on it and have been on it for almost 3 months and I'm almost 40lbs down the weight melts off and while some look at the plan as being pricey when you look at the health benefits, break down the overall cost its next to nothing and it has been known to help women who have been trying for years conceive as well it's packed with vitamins and nutrients :) I'm not a sales rep or trying to advertise just sharing what I have personally experienced.. My periods are normal and no more intermittent bleeding, cramps or weird discharge my skin, hair nails and body just feel overall better than ever and best of all I feel GREAT!

The plan is Medifast and you can go to their website it's www dot medifast1 dot com of course with the dots instead of the word just wanted to be sure the name of the website was included in my post is why I spelled it out.. There is a fabulous support forum as well where you can register or lurk and see success stories and pictures .. The plan is amazing it's very strict but so worth it.. www dot mymedifast dot com is the support forum and as I said I'm not a sales person or a spam poster I just know that being diagnosed with PCOS after losing our first bean is what is driving me to lose this weight & Become healthier :) Please feel free to inbox me here as well and ask as many questions I will answer what I know!

HI ladies,

I think I'm a bit late to this thread, but I just started back on weight watchers (online, no meetings). I lost 30lbs on it right before I started my TTC journey, but gained about half of it back over the last year and a half. Its a really easy program to follow especially with the app on my phone. I also bought a treadmill about a month ago and try to do at least 30 minutes every morning. Not sure if it will help but it certainly can't hurt.
I'm 32, my husband is 36.
TTC since Dec 2011 - Unexplained Infertility

TTC naturally through Sept 2012
Oct 2012 - HSG - Monitored natural cycle = BFN
Nov 2012 - Clomid 50mg + trigger shot = BFN
Dec 2012 - Clomid 100mg + trigger shot + IUI = BFP!!!
Feb 2013 - Miscarriage - 7w4d (Blighted Ovum)
Mar 2013 - Hysteroscopy - Clomid 100mg + tigger shot + IUI = BFN
Apr 2013 through Feb 2014 - TTC naturally, saving up for a few more IUIs
Mar 2014 - Femara 5mg + trigger shot + IUI = BFP!!!
4/1 First Beta - 294

Hey thully.....

I too need to lose some weight but its for me to feel good about my body and to be able to get pregnant again. I was about 180 when we conceived our DS about 5 yrs ago. Now we are trying and I want to do all those diets but those programs cost money which we dont have every month to spend.

How are you doing?

Hi Randa darling :hugs:

We meet again :D
Oh my goodness, I've got the same dilemma as you dear. I'm not getting any younger and its even worse for my hubby. He is 53 and I'm 33 and still yet to conceive my 1st born! So I need to get back into shape coz I suspect that my sudden irregular cycles are caused by the extra flab. I do know that if you gain weight, insulin is increased, and this can hinder ovulation when its in high quantity.

I'm also doing all this for ME! I don't like what I see in the mirror anymore and it makes me feel uncomfortable...BIG TIME. I usually love taking photos but not lately. I don't like the way my clothes fit now...and I feel that the whole world can see how uncomfortable I am in my own body :doh:
