I am. Been on the primal diet for a few months. It's basically eating "clean" with nothing processed and trying to eat only fruit, veg, meat, full fat diary, nuts and seeds, fish. Your not supposed to eat legumes but I do eat humous.
You have to try to walk daily. Any amount just get out and also have 20 mins fresh air in the sunshine if you can manage that for vitamin d.

So far its working. I have lost about half a stone but I feel brilliant on it. And my skin is great.

I'm doing fault fertility yoga and as of last week got back to jogging.

How ever is still a diet and I still miss chocolate and gin and tonic.....I really miss , really miss bread! !!.

Anyone else trying to lose weight? Thought we could have a motivational thread on here x

We arent ttc just yet but I desperately need to lose some weight and get healthy so we have the best possible chance. I weigh the same as I did before Hannah which is overweight Sad I have been struggling since January to properly lose weight, I'll lose one week only to gain or maintain the next. I know its my own fault as I never stick to it properly. I want to lose around 10lb - 1 stone. x

Post subject: Yes, trying to lose weight....
I'm 38 and have been TTC a whole year now. I reached a whopping 79 kilos in April and since seeing that I decided to "change my ways". I started walking 2-3 times a week for about an hour and I also started doing aerobics, at home, following fun videos I would find online. I also increased the salads, the fruit and have cut down on pasta, bread and sweets. I have seen improvement. Today I am 74 kilos (5 whole kilos down). This encourages me to keep at it. Maybe *this* might lead me to get passed the TTC and move on to the FP (Finally Pregnant).

Delighted with loss this week. Normally means I won't lose next week but I won't give up hope if I stay the same next week or even put on as I'm going out for a meal twice xxx

Love this thread, brilliant idea Helen.

I would love to lose 3 stone before we do IVF in a few weeks (ok I know that is not going to happen).

I'm also trying to do high protein low-carb, although really struggling to get my protein high enough, it's still coming in at about 20%. Must try harder... any tips gratefully received - I'm a guilty former 90% veggie now eating a bit more meat than before.

Anyway I've lost about 5 kilos so far but then AF arrived yesterday and been feeling sorry for myself so hit the carbs this morning and decided to write the day off, food-wise. No point recording weight tomorrow I'll post mine Tuesday morning when I'm back on it!
