Impatiently baby craycray

Im having some issues with patience...

I really want a baby, like right now. And all we are waiting for is for me to lose weight.
Weight loss is already such a slow process, ugh..

Im exercising 5 days a week, eating really well, staying focused and motivated, I just wish there was some sustainable way I could speed this up.

The original weight I wanted to get down to was 150lbs, Im 227lbs and 150lbs seems sooo far away :/
I think I would be happy getting back to 190 and trying.

    I would suggest maybe (as you are able) to use the time you are losing weight to also get other things in order - the things you want done before baby comes. Like, finances and decluttering a room and establishing a project that you won't have time for after baby comes. Y'know, get all the other ducks in order, things that are shorter-term goals alongside the weight coming off. Things that will make it SO much easier on you for having done them BEFORE baby comes! This will give you some other things to be excited about, a feeling of satisfaction, and take up some of that impatient mental energy. Think of it as practice for pregnancy - a baby takes 9 months to develop. Practice that! Practice 9 months of weight loss - working toward a goal. Believe me, expectant mothers get quite impatient after about 7 months. You can have a head-start on knowing you can go the distance without being cranky that it's taking "too long!"
    All my best wishes to you!

    You can do this. The weight didn't come on overnight and it can't just magically come off overnight. One day at a time...

    You can do this. It will be worth the wait.

    Well, 188 would be halfway so I'd say 190 isn't a bad goal. Once you get there you can continue to eat right & exercise while trying. Then once you find out you are, just follow what your doctor would recommend for exercise. For pregnancy you only add 300 cals to the cals you normally eat. It may be a slow process, but being healthy for your baby(even before) is a good thing. Good luck!
