The last 3 years have been rough - we have been trying to conceive for the past 3 years, which is needless to say very frustrating and tiring. Earlier this year I told the fertility dr that I was going to take some time off and try to focus on me... I know I need to find a way to deal with the stress and definitely lose weight!
I was the heaviest I have ever been - so I decided enough was enough and I wanted to do something about it. So, I met with my dr last month and we discussed my lifestyle. I went back to the dr yesterday and I had lost 6 pounds since my previous visit. The dr was very happy with those results. He said that with me being heavier and wanting to lose a lot of weight, he would prefer I keep doing it slow and steady.
We are currently doing a weight loss competition at the office too. That is helping because I am Team Leader of my group. I find that motivating them and supporting them is helping me as well.
I am so happy to finally be working towards my goals!! I really think that once I lose the weight and become healthier it will also help with my fertility problems. I know that I will struggle with this weight loss plan, but I also know that I am a strong woman who can do this!
