Congrats, Turtle! Sounds like a good plan for a healthy pregnancy. I'm sure the morning sickness will be along soon to help you keep your weight acceptable, haha.

jblanken, in this thread we just track our weight. Some of us do calorie counting, some do keto, some Weight Watchers, etc. There are other subforums on this site with support each of those if you look around!

Former maintainer, now losing again in 2014 after my second baby.

OK, goals... Hmmmm... lost just under 9 pounds last month on the first month back on track. I'm aiming for 7 this month. Aiming for doable, but not unreachable or easy.

CW: 233.0
GW: 226.0

05/01: 233.0 (-0.0)
05/02: 234.0 (+1.0) Ovulation weight gain
05/03: 234.4 (+1.4) Ovulation weight gain
05/04: 235.1 (+2.1) Ovulation weight gain
05/05: 233.9 (+0.9) Starting to come down from Ovulation weight gain
05/06: 233.1 (+0.1) Can't wait to stop putting a PLUS in front of my totals!
05/07: 232.1 (-0.9) YAY!!!! First loss of this month!
05/08: 230.0 (-3.0) FINALLY dropping!
05/09: 228.9 (-4.1) Not sure how much "whoosh" is left for this post-ovulation thing.
05/10: 228.4 (-4.6) Let's see if I can lose 2.4 more pounds in 3 weeks. My body will stall out soon.
05/11: 227.5 (-5.5) totally shocked by this
05/12: 228.9 (-4.1). This is how I know I'm carb sensitive 1.4 pound gain from a slice of pie and a scoop of ice cream for Mother's Day.
05/13: 228.0 (-5.0) Lost .9 of that 1.4 pound carb weight gain.
05/14: 227.1 (-5.9) lost the rest of the water weight and added .4 of new loss
05/15: 226.4 (-6.6) woohoo only .4 to go for the month to reach goal!
05/16: 226.0 (-7.0) I made my goal!!!!!! Yay!!!! Phew... as I know the monthly stall-out should be here in the next day or two! (starting with my period).
05/17: 225.6 (-7.4) bonus ounces!
05/18: 225.9 (-7.1) monthly visitor should be here any minute (I think... darn perimenopause!)
05/19: 225.4 (-7.6) Period started. Yay for regularity.
05/20: 225.5 (-7.5) SOOOOO happy that I'm not getting a lot of water weight gain with AF.
05/21: 224.1 (-8.9) Eek! Wow gardening is a great way to drop weight!
05/22: 224.5 (-8.5) I knew that huge drop had to be a fluke, but glad it didn't go up much!
05/23: 223.7 (-9.3) Unbelievable really. I've never lost this much in a month EVER before.
05/24: 223.6 (-9.4) So expected it to bounce up this morning, as this can't be real?
05/25: 223.7 (-9.3) Yep... Monthly stall out is beginning.
05/26: 223.3 (-9.7) close to 10 lbs, but it will start to climb as I near ovulation.
05/27: 224.0 (-9.0) and as predicted, climbing as I near ovulation - day 9
05/28: 222.4 (-10.6) OMGosh! I did it! NEVER have I lost 10 pounds in a month!
05/29: 222.1 (-10.9) guess ovulation is delayed this month with these losses!
05/30: 221.3 (-11.7). #%*€???? What???
05/31: 220.9 (-12.1) HOLY WOW!!!!

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:

Congratulations, Turtle11! All your progress in the last year has given you the perfect tools for a healthy pregnancy.

jblanken: we're all over the map on food plans in this thread. Most people set a goal for a number of pounds to lose in a month, although even that is flexible.

I struggled in April. I tried a new plan to see if that would help and it kind of did. But it was higher protein than I was used to, which meant I kept going for more calories to meet the protein requirement. I felt like I was getting no results on the scale while putting an awful lot of effort in. So I gave up. Sigh. But I’m not going to let that plan defeat me. I can do this. But I’m not going to weigh for a while so I don’t get discouraged.

My goal for May: log my food every day.

Project: back to goal, 5 pounds at a time
My goal story: Fifty and feeling fabulous!

Okay, I didn't lose and actually gained almost 2 pounds in April...but I am resolved to continue on. I would like to lose 5 pounds in May. We leave for Disney World on May 30. I know it is going to be very difficult to eat healthy there (The food is sooo yummy at the restaurants we have planned), and I want to give myself a little buffer before I go. I have never been there and not gained weight.

5/1 - 152

Turtle - Congratulations!!!! That is sooo wonderful and exciting!!!

Hope everyone on here...and lurking in the background...is ready for a fantastic month of healthy eating and being good to your body!
Highest weight 245 lbs.

If I can see it...I can be it!
