I have NO motivation! I am still chugging along with a 5 pound loss but that next (and possibly last) 5 pounds seems out of reach right now.
I am sure the meds are not helping things but during the 2ww I hardly exercise... And 2 years of TTC I am surprised I haven;t put on a ton of weight because of that!
I don;t have any urge to wear a swimsuit or look pretty... I just want a BABY. And i know getting down 5-10 pounds to a normal bmi will help, it just seems like I have done everything and nothing has helped so I have no motivation.

i just needed to vent

I can relate. I put on about 20 extra pounds or so after I had Lyndsey and I couldn't take them off while I was ttc. I had motivation issues and plus the stress of it I think makes you want to eat more. I didn't take off the extra weight till after I had Shawn. Just try to make yourself little goals that don't overwhelm you and keep plugging along.

Thanks ladies...
I just am all or nothing. So i wanna do NOTHING LOL!
At least I'm not gaining right? Last time I gained 45 pounds in the 18 months it took to get pg with the last! It's been almost two years and I have gained like 5 pounds so I guess I should look on the bright side.

Thank you again. You gals made me feel better.

*hugs* I'm there with you Lucy! We aren't taking any meds for ttc (yet), but I'm frantically trying to get 23.2 lbs gone before we get pregnant, which is 10% of my body weight when i started.

17 gone, 5.2 more to go before July 15th (which is my next testing date).

I use a calendar for motivation. I write every weigh in down, even if it goes up. It keeps me accountable
