Weight Loss for TTC

Recommended Posts

Guest Ash

I'm not the smallest girl. 270 IBS. And I'm not proud of it. Consequently, its hard for me to TTC a baby this heavy. I also have high blood pressure so I'm putting off having a baby until I can get to a better weight. That's my motivation. Also I've always wanted to say I could run without having to stop 2 seconds after I start.

hI There Ash, Welcome on here.

 

What is TTC?  Please do not stress yourself if you cannot run, by all means, get out here and walk the whole thing.  You are moving and that is all that matters.  Nutrition plays a big factor too, so watch what you eat too.  A lot of us are on MyFitnessPal and we encourage each other there too.  My name on there is kellybarr1.  I track everyday usually.   You can do it, so get out and go.  We are all here helping each other.   HUGS!

@KellyAnn TTC = Trying To Conceive :) Ash, Kelly's right - start out by walking and watching what you eat. Losing weight the right way takes time but it's the better, healthier option. It really all comes down to portion control and what you put in your body. Start out slowly, and start to challenge yourself a little bit at a time, and before you know it, the lbs will be melting off of you :) Best of luck to you on your journey! Keep us posted on your progress.

Walking is actually a GREAT place to start.  Everything I have read about doing a program like this says that the assumption is that you can walk briskly for 30 minutes or more 2-3 times a week before you start the program.  I started out doing that and trimmed 10 pounds over the course of 5 weeks just by walking a few nights a week.  It built a level of endurance in my body that allowed me to start W1 D1 and stick to it.  It also build a level of confidence in me mentally that I was not going to give up as this gets harder.  I am on W3 D2 and feel a lot different than I did 4 weeks ago.  KellyAnn is right as well.  I started using MyFitnessPal 2 weeks ago and am hooked on having an app that is so helpful at allowing me to keep track of my nutrition.
