Focusing on Weight Loss

Jul 17, 2010 - 0 comments

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!
