Weight Loss Buddies

Postby kara » Sat Nov 07, 2009 11:42 am

Ok gals, I've seen a decent amount of posts regarding weight loss. And since I learned at the Patient Symposium that losing weight was the one best ways we, as PE survivors, could hands-on improve our odds in pregnancy, and with our high risk of cardiovascular disease in later life, I thought we would resurrect our WLB group!

We will weigh in Tuesday's starting this week!
Highest weight
Current weight
Weight lost/gained in the previous week
what you are doing (excercise, food/diets, etc)
challenges or victories for the week

Everyone is welcome to join, whether your are loosing, or maintaining.

Count me in. I've gained back the weight I lost earlier this year. :-(

Ok, count me in as well. I have been "trying" to lose weight for a bit now without much success. We are starting TTC this month, but I will just keep my exercise up and improve my eating and see what happens. I won't be totally committed at this point though!

Oh me - I've GOT to lose weight!! I was doing *so* good in early 2007 & was exercising, working with a trainer & had lost 12 lbs to be back to where I was before babies - and then I found out I was pregnant with Ali. I'm now 20 lbs over where I was when I got pregnant with her - UGH!!! And I was still almost 20 lbs too heavy back then. I've never been this big not pregnant!!!

I am really hoping that if I lose weight & get in shape I'll feel better & maybe even be able to get off of 1 of my 3 BP meds (or at least cut back my doses). I only needed one small dose of 1 BP med before this last pregnancy & now I need 2 highest doses & one medium dose. And I'm 40 now. I have to be old but I don't have to be fat too!!! ;)

Oh, I forgot, post your height if you want in your weigh ins. I was doing well with shedding the weight, but I have fallen off the wagon. I stress eat. Selling the house, moving cross country, etc, etc, and Ive put back on a few-probably 7 lbs....but I'll find out on Tuesday.

I'll post first to get us started. The WLB group has really kept me accountable in the past.

I'm in! I have been struggling to lose some weight and I think this just might be the push I need to get back into an exercise routine.

And just so everyone knows, you don't have to be on any particular diet, or even food restriction, or any particular excercise program. It's really just a group where you can stay accountable to whatever it is you want to do to be healthy. I however, need to loose some poundage!! :-))
