Are any of you ladies interested in starting a TTC weight loss challenge with me? Since I've started my job I've gained 20 pounds and would like to shed it, and losing weight makes for a healthier TTC and a cuter baby bump (IMO)

Maybe we can weigh in every Monday and spend the res of the week posting recipes and cheering each other on?

I'm going to weigh myself in the morning to get started, anyone else is free to join me

I just weighed in... 143.4 as of 2/19/14. I feel like I got hit by a bus so I won't be working out until I'm no longer sick, but I am eating a paleo diet

I just need to lose like 5 pounds, I gained over the holidays and haven't taken off. But I need motivators to kick my butt to move. I exercise when I teach my classes, but really need to do more in between.

You all can totally do it!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not trying to lose any weight, but I'm trying to cut back on a few things and eat a lot healthier (I'm a fast food junkie!). I'll cheer y'all on and maybe use this to help me make better meal choices.

I'll join! Both DH and I have been working out and eating healthier in the past month. He's lost 10 lbs (yay!) using a FitBit, and I'd like to lose 7 lbs and gain muscle mass. I've started a fitness program at my local gym, and need more motivation to stay away from the sweets, especially at night!

Great idea, thanks!

I need to loose about 40 lbs. I did really good last Summer and lost but then gained it back when my body went hormone crazy and many trips to the OB. Are there any exercises to avoid during the waiting period or once get pregnant? I just wish you could loose weight (without being sick) during pregnancy - or can you? I gained 50 lbs with my daughter and only lost about 10lbs of that (I gained while breastfeeding instead of loosing). I'm worried that if I get pregnant and gain another 50 lbs that my small 5'1" frame won't be able to hold it all - LOL!! Not to mention I'd be over 200 lbs which I do not want to do!!

I started out at around 135 when pregnant with first daughter and am now still 175 over 2 years PP

I think it depends from person to person, but I think most lower-impact exercise would be fine...walking, elliptical, certain weightlifting, exercise bike. After the first trimester, I would avoid exercises on your back, or deep lunges and heavy lifting, but I think most things are fine unless you are high risk. I think it definitely helps me relax too. I like to get on the exercise bike and watch Netflix or read; helps pass the time.

Planning for week 1:

Ladies, we all know how important planning when TTC is, and that is true for weight loss also.

What is your plan for week one (start Monday)? How will you ensure you meet your goal?

What is your starting weight? What is your weight loss or fitness goal for this week ?

I'm starting out at 143 and my goal is to drink at least 64 oz of water per day. My plan for success is to plan my meals and make them ahead of time, also going to carry my water bottle around everywhere!

Post it, girls!
