Can anyone please give me their stories if you were bigger and pregnant or if its even possible to "Maintain" your weight while pregnant.
Thank ladies and gents
For one, I hope she immediately stopped doing Phase 1. Phase 1 is NOT healthy for a pregnant woman.
Every body reacts differently to pregnancy. The important thing is to make sure you aren't giving in to every bad food craving and using pregnancy as the excuse. I did that with my first pregnancy and gained almost 50lbs. My second pregnancy I was obese when I started, but I watched what I ate and made good healthy choices. After my son was born I was within 5lbs of the weight I had been before getting pregnant again.
Weight Watchers is actually a great pregnancy weight management plan - good balanced meals with calorie control, if gain is a concern that might be the way to go until after the baby is born and no longer breastfeeding.
