I know I have mentioned my weightloss before... Mainly because this is the first time where I have TTC around a normal BMI and didn't gain a ton TTCMA (I did gain 15 and am still up 10).

BEAUTIFUL LUCY!!!! You are inspiring!!! I lost 35 lbs a handful of years ago and then I gained about 15 back (It was too hard to maintain 118lbs!)...I felt good there at 132ish, then I gained about 50 (12ish lbs x 4 years ttc) I was up to 210 with Mallory and lost the 27 I gained with her in about 2 weeks w/breastfeeding. I'm sure I'd have gained more if I didn't have gestational diabetes and had to watch carefully what I ate...I lost 10 more (172) and have been stuck at that for 2 1/2 years since Mallory was born. I really wish I'd kicked my butt into gear and lost the extra 40 lbs. I'd be so much happier. I have bins of clothes that used to fit. It's depressing!

I'm trying to cut out caffeine, eat healthier. Why is it so hard?

aww thank you leah. i love you!
i dunno but I am totally discouraged trying to lose ANYTHING TTCMA. It's terrible! The hormones + depression= hell! I am surprised I haven't gained back more!!!
I gained at least 50 pounds TTCMA with both 1& 2. Been going longer TTC but still exercising so I guess thats the only thing saving me.
118lbs?!?! I think my right foot weighs that
I lose breastfeeding and i am praying I can do it again LOL!

I'm late to this but Lucy you are truly amazing! What an inspiration you are! I know that took a lot of hard work and I'm very proud of you! After my loss in April 2011, I gained 40lbs. I would lose some and then gain twice back. I hit 170 in March, I'm only at 159 now, my goal is 140. That's a healthy weight for me if I go by BMI - it'll still be around 22 but not 24/25 where I have been recently.

Beautiful Lucy!!! Great job keeping it off! I only wish I had as much discipline as you do! I starting TTC at 150 which is a pretty good weight for me - I'm 5'8" and I'm up to 180 now -YIKES!!! Hoping I can control my weight gain better with this pregnancy then I did with my last - I gained 80lbs while pregnant with my DD

Lucy - you HOTTIE!!!!

I lost a ton of weight breastfeeding too but it all come back on PLUS once I stopped. I am hoping this time around trying to nurse twins I can crank up the metabolism and keep it off this time. I am doing good with weight gain so far... I am 24 weeks and haven't gained any. I was up to 200 though I am still at 200 and I can tell my face is thinner and my back boobs are gone... lol It's all going to my belly right now.... I am sure I will be gaining about a lb a week now for the next 15 weeks of this pregnancy as these little guys get some mass.
