    OMG, look at this thread, i was the first to reply to Beaksie then forgot and look at you all now!! Excellent!

    Name: Megan
    Start Weight: 103.5
    Current Weight: 103.5
    Height: 160cm
    Ideal Weight: 65kg
    Notes:Have been on this TTC rollercoaster for 13 months now and i have just piled on the weight. When i started i was about 72kg so started out overweight anyway and now its worse. We are on a TTC break for 3 months so we started our diets today. We are trying the Sacred Heart Hospital Soup Diet. Yay.... Kim is on the diet with me, she is about 84kg and would like to be around 70kg. I think it would be too hard to keep track of Kim as well so I'll just do my weigh in's and will probably talk about Kim's weight loss aswell along the way. Best of Luck everybody!!

    Hi guys,
    I can't understand why I have taken so long to get to this thread - Maybe I just did not want to see!
    I am joining. I have a blog, but this would be double the motivation

    Current: 74kg
    Goal: 65 kg
    Need to lose: 9 kg
    Height: 172m
    Target date: 26 Dec
    I am currently with weight watchers and has lost 2kg already. I have started gym at the begining of the month again, so that would help shift the kilo's. I love going to gym. I have never been thin, my whole life. I was always above 80kg in high school (heaviest at 86kg - met my DH like that) and has only lost the weight just before getting pg (go figure) I was down to 68kg, but my goal was always 65kg. So now I have given myself till end of the year to reach it, because I am not getting pg for nr 2 before nr 1's weight has come off!
    I am hoping to get some great tips here, especially what to do before AF, because that is my biggest hurdle. I get a very bitter taste in my mouth about two days before AF and then I am constantly eating sweet things to get rid of the taste.
    I am not breastfeeding anymore.
    Hoping to get to know you guys a lot better over the next few months!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm just checking in and saying hi to all the recent joiners. Like Sarah, and a few others, I'm trying to lose weight to TTC. I've looked up a few medical journals and research shows that a loss of 5% of your body weight (so 5kg for someone who weight 100kg like me) can result in returned regular ovulation and better hormonal patterns that are condusive to conception! It seems weird to me that such a small loss would make a difference, but there you go!

    Today, I'm trying to be good. I've skipped the gym (doh!) but will go for a walk with DH tonight instead.

    Yesterday's food: 1 piece of brown bread and peanut butter, 1 x skim decaf coffee, 1 salmon sandwhich, 1 little diet jelly, 1 cup milk, 1 small serve of sweet potato curry homemade and 2 brownies (oops!). I would have been happy withoutthe brownies and the skim milk they were indulences. I never know what to have for a snack before going to the gym early in the morning so I normally end up with bread and peanut butter. Any suggestions girls?

    Ruth B- What about a fruit smoothie or similar? I find that having a shake in the morning is much quicker then making toast or something. They taste sooo good too.

    Well I need to overcome my bread cravings.... I LOVE bread If I allowed myself too I could probably eat a whole loaf a day. Yesterday I had 4 peices of multi-grain toast with tomato and cucumber on it. Yummy. I also find I'm a snacker, I'll be snacking all day without really thinking about it. Like yester day everytime I had a coffee (I had 4) I had a couple of bickies to dip in it. Another thing I should really stop. Does anyone have any tips to help me stop this?
    I got on my bike for 10 mins yesterday morning and 20mins this morning, so that's going alright. Tomorrow when I only have DD I might go for a walk up to the shops or something don't know.

    I hope you are all going strong with being healthy.

    Hi ladies, is it ok if I join you?

    Start weight:82kg
    Current weight:79kg
    Ideal weight:55-60kg
    Realistic weight:70kg to start with
    Notes: Put on heaps of weight after having children 2 x DS. I must admit Iv`e been over weight for a long time, got down to 70 lots of times, my 2nd DS is 8.
    Had tubal reversal last year, just found out both tubes are blocked so its now in the hands of the gods !!
    Figure it`s me time now and I want to loose the extra weight.
    Think it`s great to be able to help each other out this way.

    Hi girls. Welcome all the Newbies!
    Just wanted to drop in and say gday. Im off on long weekend tomorrow, so will be "off the air" till Tuesday or Monday night. What will I do? BB has become like a second home to me lately, Im not sure if I can manage that long without a hit! Oh well.
    Ruth- Just wondering. Ive been looking at what some of you girls are eating, and I wonder if you're actually eating enough? Im trying to roughly follow weight watchers points, and I eat heaps more than you guys while still remaining in my allowance. Example yesterday
    2 weetbix skim milk and sweetner 2.5
    1 slice grainy toast with diet jam 2.5
    cup of tea (no sugar) 0
    ww muffin from muffin break 3.5
    coffee w skim milk .5
    slice of homemade ww lasagne 3
    ww fruit bar 1.5
    home made low fat steak pie with filo pastry 6
    mashed spud w skim milk & low fat sour cream 1.5
    heaps of veg 0
    banana, kiwi and strawberries with ww yogurt 3
    total points 24
    Daily allowance 24 points
    As you can see, you can eat HEAPS, as long as its the right type of food, and being the foodie I am, theres no way I could do it otherwise. In fact if you dont eat enough, you wont lose weight because your body will go into starvation mode and hold onto the fat AND if your like me, you're more likely to binge afterwards.
    Anyway, let me know what you think.

    Hi all,

    welcome to all the new people good luck on your jouney.

    Had a good day yesterday did lots of walking and stayed under in calories without going mental.

    alison, I add 10 mins of housework to everyday for good measure as exercise. I might add some more exercise for the bf now, thanks for the tip

    Nadine is the taste metalic? the taste might be connected to the health of your guns and your iron levels, do you normally use a mouthwash? it would def overpower any nasty taste. It got rid of the metallic taste i was having after birth.

    RuthB: if your after something quick and easy, sanitarium up and go is pretty good, but i'd probably still have the toast with it.

    ellsbells, don't worry too much about bread, esp not at the begining of starting a diet. if you want to reduce your carbs you'll have to drop the biscuits first and it will be a whole lot easier on you if you drop the coffee as well, switch to water. there really is no reason to drop bread from your diet, esp if you have other things you can get rid of iykwim

    b4 my pg i had pretty much stopped craving snacks, so am hoping i get back there.

    I am doing Cohens (lifestyle)..if you google it, it was designed by an IVF doctor to increase fertility but had a great effect on weightloss...quick for those who stay 100% on it..lol something I did for about 30 kilos and then got excited that I could finally fit into clothes. So I have told DH that my reward is a bit of plastics if I can achieve 69 !! well after another baby

    Hi everyone! I am also lacking motivation at the moment! I started out strong, but have slipped again!

    Starting weight - 74
    Current weight - 70Kg
    Goal weight - 65Kg

    I was 78Kg about 3 years ago, then got down to 68Kg just before falling pregnant with Nicholas. I have since lost 4kg doing weight watchers (not going to meetings, just online), but am struggling to lose the last 5Kg. I love chocolate and this is my vice. I have been excersising, but am thinking about joining a gym with a couple of other mums from playgroup to keep my motivation. We are going on holidays in November to QLD so would love to lose it before then to get into a pair of bathers! Also, having some family pics done in a couple of months too, so want to look good for those.
