    Great to have to here Belinda. It's a hard decision to make, well it was for me anyway. I was torn between losing about 10kg and start TTC again as suggested months ago, or do i lose ALL of the excess weight (and there is a ***** load of it) for myself and my long term health before getting pg. I figured that if i lost 10kg and got pg, then i'm only going to put it all back on plus more over pregnancy, and i'll be back to where i started from and still a heffa lump. This way, i can concentrate on me for a change, get to my goal weight, enjoy a few months of skinniness and then start TTC again. PLUS then i will also know if my 5 year TTC journey to date was because of my weight, or if we really are in the catagory of 'unexplained infertility'...It was hard but i know i've made the right decision. Good luck hun, and I'll know you'll do well.

    Ambah - don't worry about it. I didn't end up doing anything last month anyway. I won't jump in this month either so you can take me off the front page if you like.

    Welcome Odette - hope you get through the detoxing pretty soon. Have a look at the first page of this thread for those in the BL and email your info into Ambah, and she will add you to the list. Good luck with it all.

    Well ladies, i'm on Day 4 of my new plan, and going really well. The detox side-effects only lasted for the first day, so i was pleased with that, and going great guns so far. Haven't cheated once, and i don't plan to. IF this doesn't work, then i don't think anything will for me - well except for maybe lap-band surgery, but i don't want to do that. I'm have official weigh in's once a month, but i think i'll do it once a week to see how i'm going, well at least this week anyway, coz i can see some slight changes already and i'll be interested to see how much of lost this week. I'll let you all know.

    How are the rest of you going??????

    hi girls

    sorry i havent posted this week, well i was a bit surprised that i won the biggest loser for the month, but i have been working extremely hard, and waht do they say "no pain no gain".......well plenty of pain going on here!! still going to the gym, i get my 40day weigh in and measurement on tuesday, so i cant wait for that, as i can see the cm's i have lost since joining the gym, and also i changed trainers, as i didnt need that biarth that doesnt give you any encouragement!!
    well to all the girls that have joined of late my persoanl goal is to lose 15kg, i was 80kg to begin with and i am 74kg now( or that was what i was at the beginning of the month)
    i would love to get back to 65kg as that was my pre baby weight.........and im going to qld in july so i am aiming on lossing it by july.

    welcome miss belinda, i hope you can get some motivation from this thead, how do you like going to curves? i was nearly going to join them, but they didnt have babysitting where i am, i wish you well with your weight loss goals, and your TTC journey.

    shan, wow girl you sound so possitive, i am so glad to hear that, i am sure the kg are just going to drop off, i think we all need to be positve about our goals, and also be patient, cause these things take time....i so proud of you!

    maz........well what can i say...mmmmmm......maybe at christmas you might be joining us again, Jed must have super dooper sperm...........you seem to fall as soon as he looks at you.....PMSL.

    boo, hi there, i hope you did get back to the gym, most days i dont feel like it but i know i feel so much better after i go.......i am getting addicted.

    welcome nim, i only joined the gym at the beggining of feb and in the first month i lost nearly 6kg, pretty happy with that, i wish youi well, and make sure to keep popping in here for motivation, the girls in here are great.

    hi odette, and welcome, we will certainly let you in, but be warned lots of the girls here have got BFP since joining this thread i wish you all the best.

    hi to kate, tegan, nat, caddie........and anyone else i forgot.......how are all you girls going?

    girls im going to stay in here and be your cheer swad! If it wasnt for this thread, I would never have done a detox and probably wouldnt have fallen pg yet.
    Im going to tell you all how much weight I put on (I hope I really do this time) and you guys can tell me how much you loose. I have a hard time when Im pg keeping food down, so you guys can be my motivation to stay on track and not get to sick. Last pg I lost 19kg as Jed said..my best diets are being pg...im up to 112kg so far.
    Keep up your good work girls im here for you

    Thanks Chrissy. You know what. The friends i have made on this forum (even though i've only met one of you IRL) are so valuable. IRL i get told that i'm depressed, unhappy, unwilling etc etc - mainly my mum - and that talking on the internet is not healthy for me. Well, she's wrong. I feel so empowered and happy here because i'm helping others and encoraging others and for you to tell me that you are proud of me, it really means the world. Maybe my mother thinks i'm all those things because for my whole life she has put me down, that i can no longer be bothered fighting her, so she sees me as those things. I haven't told her about my new lifestyle change, because i know she'll be telling me what i should and shouldn't be doing (mind you, she is a big girl too, so can't talk!), and i'm doing this for ME.

    So thank you, and to the rest of you girls, you are all so wonderful, and i don't know where i would be without you all. You're the ones that have made me realise that i am so much more than what was drilled into my head - and even at 29yrs of age, it's still happening - and i can't thank you enough.

    Keep up the good work girls. We are all doing fantastically and we deserve our achievements.

    MAZ - I want to see lots of these..... from your cheersquad...lol

    Hmmm men in tight shorts...that would surely keep me away from anything that might add weight. DH patted my stomach this morning look its flat didnt have the heart to tell him when I stand up its going to be round lol.
    Well done Odette wow 2.2 kilos in 6 days ..I have 3 frosties too Just trying to get some excess off before going again but then again after years of non periods I have had 2 cycles 28 days on the dot...might be something in that wailing of the fert specialist telling me to lose weight ohh well too late

    Morning girls...just wanting to jump on and give you my weigh-in details. I kinda feel bad posting my loss in here as you are all working so hard, and really, i feel like i'm sort of rubbing it in, but anyway, i told you i would post. I'm so proud of myself and this week i've lost 4.3kg. I couldn't believe the scales this morning, I felt a bit lighter, and DH noticed, but i really never thought i would lose that much, especially in a week, but then again, it was probably a lot of excess fluid, so it will be interesting to see what next week brings.

    Keep up the good work girls, and i'm sorry if i've made any of you feel bad about yourselves because i know how hard you are all working to shed those kilos.

    Hi Ladies!

    Well, it's time for me to get back into it... I really don't feel at all motivated to get back into my old training program...especially after 9 months off! So, hopefully making myself accountable in here will encourage me to get right back into it! I know it has only been 3 weeks since DD was born so I am planning on starting with regular walks and some core exercises... I haven't weighed myself so have no idea where I am at with that but assuming I am back to my pre-preg weight, I want to lose about 20Kg. Lets see how I go juggling everything!
