She knows I am panicking about my weight and not getting GD or Pre-E, so not gaining as much as I did with DD, especially since I'm starting out about 12 or so pounds more than with her. Right now, in comparison to where I was with DD at 16 weeks, I'm 10 pounds more.

Anyway, she said to stick to 1800-2000 cals. I told her I was doing 2200 and she said that's ok, but with my low metabolism and age and so forth, it'll be better health wise to stick to the lower end of the 2000's or even high teens...

So, I am going to revise some of my choices to work within that 1800-2000 range. I think I can do it. She said do not starve myself, by all means, but just choose wisely

Have you asked your doc for specifics like this? Just curious to what they advise... Her thoughts and advice make great sense for my hypothyroidism and age.

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

I haven't talked specifics with my doctor, but I have been counting my calories and have usually been in the 1800-2000 range. Some days are better and around 1600, some days have been as bad as 2400 (like if we go out). In the last week or so I have been able to eat less because I have had less nauseous moments.

I don't keep track, I guess I should, but I'm scared of what I might find out

I wrote down what I ate during the day a week or so ago, and I hit 1600 calories. I was afraid that wasn't enough. I'm keeping track again today, and going to add it up tonight.

Interesting little fact I ran across yesterday.... it said you are only eating for 1.1. I guess its a different way of looking at 300 extra calories.

Just for reference:

The Biggest Loser calorie counter book I have says that most people can maintain their current weight by eating 12 calories per lb of body weight. (To lose, eat 7 calories/lb).

I haven't talked specifics yet because we haven't discovered any problems. If I feel I am gaining too much or she feels that way, we'll come up with a plan.

You can sooo do the 1800-2000 range. It just takes planning.

That's great though that y'all talked and come up with such a great plan. Do you feel better about things?
Thank you Alethia for my awesome siggy!
