Weight Loss?  Ha, I don't need no stinkin' weight loss.

 

Except I do.

 

I'm lucky enough that my weight doesn't seem to have affected my fertility issues, though who really knows.  Still getting my period regularly, responded well to IVF meds, good retrieval and fertilization, etc. etc. 

 

My husband and I have been trying to be more health conscious.  Though all that guy needs to do is just stop eating crap food and THINK about fitness and he drops 15 lbs.  His parents were just in town for 11 days, and during that time the exercise level was low, the emotional eating at a high.  But they have just left, so I feel ready to continue what he and I started before their arrival.

 

I realize I could be alone here on this, but was wondering if anyone else wanted to join a fitness accountability thread/group?  I see there is another one in this forum that was last updated 2 years ago, but maybe there is new interest?

 

Just throwing it out there. :)

Yesss.... this is a great thread to start!! I did NO exercise for the first three months, and now I'm back at work and on my feet all day, but that doesn't count as exercise. When I get home I'm exhausted. A 'buddy' could get me motivated to at least go for a walk..

me - 45.5, husband - 43.5

1 natural pregnancy but m/c in June 2011

7 failed IUIs, 3 medicated and 4 non-medicated, all BFN

I was a poor responder to the meds, only produced 1 viable egg so I'm not a candidate for IVF

Suffering  deeply, watching all my friends get pregnant and raise kids.

No one in my immediate circle of friends and family who has gone through this so forums are amazingly helpful.

 

Dec 2013 - have chosen a donor with San Diego Fertility Center and have begun the process. If all goes well we'll get me preggo in April 2014. IF all goes well... 

 

It DIDN'T go well - our donor failed her genetic testing. It took MORE exhausting searches 24/7 to find another we liked, and finally she's passed and good to go. IF all goes well we'll go down to SDFC mid-June 2014 for the egg transfer and get me pregnant..if all goes well...if... if... if... so many letdowns cannot allow me to be hopeful, just wait and see...

 

June 2014 Went to SDFC, everything went smoothly. Well, kind of...family stuff... but transfer went well

 

July 16 2014 did blood test...BFP th_abfp.gif Wow. First time, feeling a lot emotions and crying uncontrollably for last 48 hours.

 

Hoping it sticks. That's all for now.

 

Aug 11 first u/s - TWINS. omg....good size, good heartbeat. I'm terrified.

I am in.

I lost weight prior to IVF, but gained it all back.

I started back on weight watchers and am down 10 lbs so far. My biggest problem is that I am rather lazy and don't exercise unless there is someone watching me do it. Right now I am going to spin class once a week, but I really need to do something on at least a few of the other six days. We even have a treadmill. I have no excuse.

Today I am walking with some friends. It's a start.

If anyone has healthy recipes I would love a copy. I have some good ones that are weight loss friendly. They are good enough that I still ate them when I didn't need to lose weight.

I will post my turkey burger recipe later. It's my favorite and really easy to make.

Juice, of course you're exhausted!  :)

 

So your goal is some daily low intensity exercise.  When do you intend to start and how often?

 

Myself, I've got to ensure I get back on a high vegetable content diet and 'run' (elliptical) every second day.  I have to option to swim before work as well, or in lieu of.

Juice - do you swim? I swam a few times a week until they discovered my cervical issues. It really helped my back and hips to have the weight from the big belly gone for a bit.

Crazy, I'm totally lazy as well.  It's weird, when my husband chastises me for not working out, I get mad and don't want to do it to show that he's not the boss....but if he DOESN'T prompt me to do it, it's like I think I don't have to.  Odd.   Chalk it up to lazy and looking for any excuse NOT to do it.  Ha.

 

I'd love your recipe!

 

I haven't stepped on a scale since the in-laws arrived...but I suppose I'll do it tonight.  While I won't be divulging my weight, I am willing to share my current goal.  I'm trying to do them in small, easily measured and attainable chunks.

 

2014-09-29 GOAL: 10 lbs

Exercise every second day

Walk dog every day she doesn't look sore

Eat well

Drink more water

I lost 63 pounds before IVF. For me infertility was actually a great weight loss motivator. I didn't want our issues to be made worse by the fact I was over weight.

I will copy your exercise goals! I guess that means I need to do something today. Spin class is Wednesday.

I will post the turkey burger recipe shortly.

Wow!  63 lbs is nothing to sneeze at.  I have a lot more to lose than 10 lbs, but I worry I'll get overwhelmed when I don't see quick progress, you know?

LOL, not entirely sure.  I could do up some sort of a list I suppose, and everyone update their progress like a cycle buddies thread?  I assume it's just basically having to fess up if you've faltered, or get some cheering when you've succeeded, have to update every couple days?  Someone feel free to correct me.

I know exactly what you mean Meary. When you think about how long it takes when you are losing at a healthy rate it can be overwhelming. I think it's good to have a long term goal so you have an end point, but then have short term goals within it. When I first set out to lose weight I came to the realization that it was never going to be easier to reach my goal than it was the day I started. If I didn't do something that day I was just going to be older and fatter the next day and if would be even harder. Maybe a little harsh on myself, but I needed to lose over 60lbs so I needed a bit of harsh.

Now I need to lose pretty much the same amount again. But that's okay. I don't regret a pound that I put on. I would like to fit in my skin clothes again though. Especially because I donated my fat clothes.

For those of us losing weight I think we should celebrate 5 lbs increments of weight loss and have 10 lbs as short term goals.

I will do the burgers in their own post.

I think sharing/celebrating when we have met a goal and supporting each other when we haven't is good. I would also love to hear about what works for people and get food and snack ideas. I am going out for my walk right away, but later I will tell you about the miracle that is PB2.

That recipe sounds divine!  And I already have a bunch of the ingredients.  Huzzah!

 

Uh, whassa PB2?

 

I too have a LOT more to lose than my short term goal, but I'm transferring in mid November, so I don't want to be too aggressive then.  Just try to be more aware and cautious after transfer.  Until then, off I go.

I'm in.  I want to lose about 20 lbs but right now I'd be happy to lose anything.  A couple of years ago I lost 15 lbs and maintained that for 1 1/2 years and then all of a sudden I gained it all back within a couple of months.  So annoying :(

 

THe older I get the more and more difficult it gets to lose anything - I could work really hard and eat properly and finally lose a pound after a couple of weeks and then just look at a piece of cake and gain 2 back lol!  


1993 - started ttc, Aug 97-1st IVF BFN, Nov 97 FET BFN,  Aug 98 - 2nd IVF BFN, Nov 98 FET BFN, 1999-2000 - several IUI's - all BFN's, 2002 - 3rd IVF BFN, FET BFN, 2004 - 4th IVF - cancelled for poor response, 5th IVF with known donor BFN

June 2006 - ***** BFP (naturally)******  2007 *****DS was born

2008 - TTC again, 2010- started peri-menopause, 2013 - full menopause , 2014 -exploring donor egg

Nov 2014 - transfer 2 5 day embryos  Dec 2014 - BFP ***** DS born*****

Sept 2017 - transfer 2 5 day embryos - BFP

I probably have a few months to wait until the next FET so I'm in. Could stand to lose a little bit, but not too quickly because we plan to try on our own till then. Have started back on the elliptical to get in shape, in addition to my daily dog walk. Now just have to try to portion control. Easier said than done with a wedding on the weekend and thanksgiving after that!
Finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

The burgers are good. I do them in the George Foreman and have them with sweet potato fries. When you get goat cheese be sure to compare nutritional info, there is a huge variation in fat content. Also, I don't recommend ground chicken for them. I tried it and the burgers were dry and bland.

I am a peanut butter fan. I love it on apples and bananas. I discovered a product called PB2. It is a dry powdered peanut butter that you add water to. I think someone was trying to come up with a use for what was left over when they make peanut oil. It has 85% less calories and fat than regular peanut butter. The ingredients are peanuts, sugar, and salt. No weird chemicals you can't pronounce. They have regular and one with chocolate. I like the regular on apples and the chocolate is so good on bananas. It's not so good on toast. The taste is okay but because it's water based and not oil based it makes the toast soggy.

I get it from a place called Low Carb Canada. They mostly do on line orders, but they do have a retail location in Calgary by the airport. It's made in the US and is probably easier to find there.

Having the weight of the twin belly off your body is great. Most pools also have an area that is shallow enough to walk laps rather than swim them. Right before I wasn't allowed to be submerged in water anymore I would sometimes just go and float around with a pool noodle.

First consult at RFP November 2012.
First IVF cycle on antagonist protocol (GonalF, Luveris) January 2013.

Something found on adrenal gland at follow up ultrasound, MRI showed what seems to be a benign tumor. Meeting with specialist Jan 8, 2014 - all fertility treatments on hold. :/

Count me in too.  I've always had a weight battle. I need to lose about 60 lbs at this point.  My clinic (as some of you who are at the same one may know) has never really said anything about weight when it's come to cycling.  I know I would feel better doing my transfer though if I was about 10-20 lbs lighter. Right now I am the heaviest I've ever been ... almost as heavy as the day I went in to have both my kids. :(

 

I joined a gym back in June but with a crazy busy summer, I only ever made it about once a week.  I've sort of got back on track in the past couple of weeks and hubby and I have talked about incorporating more healthy and getting rid of junk (he likes his chips, I like my chocolate!) It's not only for us but for our kids too.  So ya, I still don't really know when I'll be doing a transfer but in the mean time I plan to lose a bit ... not too much to jeopardize anything, but enough to feel like I have a healthier home for embys to grow in! :)

My FET is in going to be in mid-November.  My hope is to drop a couple pounds and at least establish a good routine again.  One thing I'm terrible at is justifying a bad meal by skipping other meals.  Last I heard it was terrible for the metabolism ;).

 

I discovered a product called PB2. It is a dry powdered peanut butter that you add water to.

I'm not going to lie.  That sounds terrifying.  But I'm usually game to try new odd things.  Next time I'm out that way I may have to check it out. 

 

I'm in. I need to lose weight and get in shape.

Added to the list, under weight loss.  If you'd prefer to be added to fitness as your main goal, just update or let me know.

 

Count me in too.  I've always had a weight battle. I need to lose about 60 lbs at this point.  My clinic (as some of you who are at the same one may know) has never really said anything about weight when it's come to cycling.  I know I would feel better doing my transfer though if I was about 10-20 lbs lighter. Right now I am the heaviest I've ever been ... almost as heavy as the day I went in to have both my kids.

RFP has never said anything about it to me either.  I'm also the heaviest I've ever been too.  Welcome!

Soooooo, last night is already a bust!  lol. 

 

Walked the dog at least, so there's that.  My husband and I decided that since it was the first night without his parents there in awhile, we'd get caught up on the PVR'ed shows we haven't had time to watch....and eat the leftover turkey (hot turkey sandwiches).  Ha!  At least I was fairly sensible yesterday until that point.

 

Tonight after work it's elliptical for sure.  Also, arugula salad.

 

Ha, also I forgot to weight myself for a baseline.  Well done me!  This afternoon it is.
