I've been on this weight loss road for over 4 years now and I just want to say that I absolutely hate it and it makes me crazy!
I managed to lose right at 130 pounds over 2 years, but I did it by working out 2+ hours a day and then once a week with a trainer for over 2 hours. I would run 10+ miles a day, lift weights, take fitness classes, and was just constantly working out. Then I went back to work and I started gaining. At first it was 5 pounds, then it was 20, and now I am up a whopping 45 pounds in 2 years. We moved a few months ago and i'm no longer working, but I just have no desire to do those workouts anymore. I just can't do it. It's exhausting and I got completely burned out. I'm no stranger to SB. I tried it a while back, made it through the 2 weeks, then went crazy when I was allowed to have good carbs again in stage 2. I now know that I'm going to have a really hard time transitioning to stage 2 in a few weeks!
I started again yesterday after a weekend of completely bingeing because we had family in town for Mother's Day. No more. I'm done. I remember what it was like to be thin and I want it back!!!
We are trying to conceive though and I was wondering if it's ok to continue while pregnant at some point. I would assume it's fine since it is a healthy lifestyle and isn't crazy restrictive… I plan to continue with my 1 hour workouts (treadmill, elliptical, light weights) throughout a pregnancy and I don't necessarily want to lose while pregnant, but would prefer to not gain much.
