Losing weight pregnant

I heard a woman can stay fit while pregnant well I did 40 mins on the treadmill today felt great. I wanna lose 9 pounds because this fat girl is gonna be honest lol I am 9 pounds over what I should be pregnant over all until 30 weeks and Ive seen alot of women develop alot of health issues pregnant. Im gonna keep healthy and do this. I think the eating thing is all mental. I have fat girl stuffed now I have to be healthy. No more fast food :-) lol Wish me luck Ima need it lol

I was very active before I got pregnant. I weighed 135 and 5ft5inches tall. I used the treadmill, elliptical, my bike about 4-5 days a week. Then became pregnant and felt sick and couldn't work out. When I started feeling better and I'd walk, which lasted a couple weeks, then felt yucky again. Then I lost motivation because I think what's the point? I won't use weight so I've decided to just wait till after I have the baby. I have a pretty active job so I am getting exercise daily. I've gained 26-27lbs.

Good Luck
At 26 weeks I've only gained 3.5 Lbs
Honestly it's what you chose to eat that makes a huge difference. Get the junk out of the cabinets and fill your fridge with fruits & veggies. I'm known to sit in front of the TV with a bowl of grapes. I don't really have the time to work out since I work 6 days a week 8-13 hours a day.

Thanks Ladies, I am finished with the junk too :-) @Ivan thats not bad because most of the weigjt is baby the placenta gets up to 15 pounds and the baby can be from 5 to 9 pounds so your just all baby mostly when you give birth youll be thin again fast

I don't think u should try to lose weight... If ur gaining weight too quickly try changing ur  eating habits... When ur pregnant u should never try to lose weight..
