I was reviewing my calories and where I need to shave some and was horrified...I realized I drank about 1300 cal a day with my 8 cups( 2 cups 4x a day) of homo milk!

I did a calculater and it said I need 1900 to be healthy a day I drink over half that in just milk alone..I had no idea!

I am really concerned about being a BMI of 34 and ttcing I have read obese can lead to more m/c and I have had 4 first tri and 1 at 17W in the last 24 months and all my tests and tests/karyotypeing came back normal on babies.

Needless to say..I am NOT drinking all that yummy milk anymore LOL

Yeah when you start analyzing your calorie intake it can be quite shocking. About two years ago I was being really on top of tracking everything and trying to stay within a certain calorie range. very interesting stuff.

Something I tried for a while milk wise was switching to Silk soymilk.

A website that I really liked and helped me a lot was sparkpeople.com I lost a lot of weight while I was using it. I just got lazy with it and haven't decided to buck up and just do it again.

Thanks for the info!

I acually like soy milk! I just like Homo cow milk better LOL

I useally drink Soy when I am pg because I have a some odd lactose interllorance to cow milk when pg.

I think I am going back to soy or drinking more water and skim milk.

Sometimes it is so shocking how many calories are in some of our favorite foods/drinks, I had a pepsi adiction and realized that I was drinking about 1000-1200 in pepsi per day, wish it was that simple this time, but this time it's just too much snacking, and not enough water.

Ohh I so hear about snacking..I am really haveing to work on that but one day at a time!

I have never been a pop drinker maby 1 to 2 cans in a yr. Milk is my pepsi!
