Best laid plans: I have tried for years upon years to lose weight- with the main goal to get healthy before getting pregnant.
Actual accomplishment: losing 15-20lbs (depending on the day and water retention) out of the 45lbs that was the initial goal from my highest weight ever. Better than not losing, and way better than continuing on the previous path and continuing to gain. But still, I remain a smidge over into the obese category.
But I'm 32 (...33 in a few months), and I have been putting off this baby stuff for too long. It's official: Ive got the baby fever! Ready or not, no more birth control pills ;)
Even when I was in high school and college and skinny, I had PCOS. So I don't know difficult this process will be. But I don't have unlimited time to fool around here. My fertility is decreasing by the minute... ok maybe that's a little much... by the year.
Plus maybe actually jumping into this process will give me to extra push to continue to lose weight while we try. Definitely less calories from alcohol.
