I'm stuck at 237 I have been here for a little over a month and it doesn't wanna budge. On the plus side, I have managed to maintain weight, but c'mon now - I want this weight to come off already. What the heck!

Ainsie Congrats on the baby news!!!!

I am having a good weekend so far. Did my 30 minutes on the treadmill today and stayed within my calorie and carb range. I am trying not to focus on the scale numbers but more on the miles I walk on the treadmill. I also have a pair of pants I try on every week that I want to fight into. My scale will show me at 227 and ten minutes late I will be 222.

Hope you all have a good weekend

I figure I'll try to keep the weight gain to a minimum until then. She probably won't want me to gain too much anyway. Secretly I'm hoping she can say I can still lose but I doubt it. Guess I will have to pull out of the Halloween challenge. I wanted to win it.

I have a friend (currently) that found out she was pregnant at around 275lbs. Her dr told her to up her cals by 300 per day and walk and move as much as she was comfortable with. She's around 250 now and her baby is due in December and right on point for his growth. It can be done

That's about what I figured. I changed my weight loss goal to 1 lb a week and reduce my activity level back to low so that puts me at about 300 net calories more. I will still continue my dancing but at a lower intensity. I'm still going to do my "runs" as it is mostly walking. Only about 5 min of joggi g spread over 40 min. I'll also reduce the weight that I'm lifting but increase the reps. I'm going to make sure to eat clean too.

You're going to be an amazing pregnant woman! (Unlike me that gained a crap ton of weight everytime!)

I weighed in at 240.8 this morning, so I'm hoping to be joining this thread real soon

ainslie - I got pregnant with my daughter after losing a lot of weight. I didn't do anything different other than lose weight. We weren't trying to get pregnant, but we weren't trying not to either. I kept losing weight for the first few months, but then I started gaining. The problem was I kept gaining after I had her.

Sure enough, when October 31, 2013 came, I was deeply grateful and pleased with my progress. It's been 19 months and over 115 lbs lost, and I remain deeply grateful every day. There are no words to explain how worth it the hard work is.

I am at 237 and am doing the 5:2 fast diet. I am trying it out for a month and see how it goes. I have been on it for a week and have lost. But I have tried everything and this is just an experiment.

Ainslie. I stayed the same weight with my pregnancy and came out weighing less than when I went in. It can be done and be healthy. You have a good plan stick to it and you will be okay.

Have a great night everyone.

I've been MIA on this thread for a while due to a plateau that just beyond ticked me off that I wasn't budging, so I refused to post about it to keep my temper down. I am hapy to announce though, that I saw a NICE water weight whoosh last night and stepped on the scale to see a HUGE difference...223.5!!!! WOOT WOOT!

How's everyone doin'?

congrats ainslie - blessing in disguise

Hello! I'm joining in here after a long absence from 3FC -- I'm up 27 lbs from my low of 199...so sitting at 226 right now. I hope to be in the 2-teens in a couple of weeks, since I think I have a great deal of water weight to lose before I get to the real fat.

YAY for the loss, zoesmom!! Welcome to the thread, Angie!

LoseToAll, I'm interested in seeing how the 5:2 diet works for you! That's the one where you have 2 500 calorie days a week, right? I'm a big fan of daily IF but I've never tried a weekly version.

I was down to 221.6 yesterday but bumped up to 223 today, ugh. Hopefully I'll drop it all post TOM!

I am still here. Weight bumped back up to 220.9. I did over do with the sodium yesterday so drinking up my lemon water and see if that makes a difference.
Congrats to zoesmom for the whoosh fairy visit. Great going. Welcome all new members to the thread.

I think I might officially be in the 230's now. I weighed in at 238.6 this morning on my scale at home. I put 239 because by the time I got to work that's what it showed and the scale here at work is what I go by because we use it for our weight loss challenges.

It sounds like several of you have had a big whoosh. Congrats!!! Let's all hurry up and get in the next thread.

I haven't been down to this weight since I was pregnant with my daughter back in 1999. I don't ever remember weighing under 200, so there will be a HUGE party when I make it there! Two more pounds I'll have lost 100 pounds since July of 2011! I can't believe it!
