I would like to loss weight before I get pregnant, but I don't think I'm going to wait to try to until I loss weight, at this point I will be 34 in march, and my mom went through menopause at 36... so I kind of feel like the clock is ticking. I think if you have high blood pressure, then yes, of course it would be helpful to drop some pounds to get your blood pressure better under control, but my blood pressure normally isn't high, soooo I don't know. I am over weight, there is no doubt about that, but so many women that are much heavier then me do not have these problems, and there are some thin women that do so... I don't know. I mean there are other things that go with losing weight, like eating healthier means your are getting more vitimens, and exercising is a stress reducer, so I guess I plan to get "healthier" but i'm going to remove the I must weight 143 before I try from my brain. I'll start working out, and eating better and if the weight comes off great... but if I get pregnant 10 pounds down, I'm not going to beat myself up about it and keep on trying to live the healthier life style.
