So I started met the day I got my BFP but my doctor told me to keep taking it. I've lost about 8 lbs in 2 weeks but I don't know if that's from food aversion. But honestly I do think some is from the met.

I was in a similar situation. Keep up the efforts! Some things that worked for me:

- Get off of sugar and alcohol. Be honest with yourself and spend at least 60 days cutting it all out!
- Are you willing to try out some supplements? There's been a lot of research on keto diets helping with weight loss and one way to get into a keto diet. Keto diets can really help with weight loss and I used a good MCT oil in my coffee to help with it.
- Portion control. Throw out all your big plates and bowls and get smaller ones.

If you work hard at it, you won't need metformin at all :)
