If I do squats while brushing my teeth does that count as a morning work out?

I get out of bed at 4:55. I am not getting up any earlier than that. On the upside AF is finally here so hoping to lose the water weight and cravings.

It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018

My husband gets up at 5 to go to work. No commute, just 12 hour shifts.
Me - now 36 Him - 37
Trying to conceive since our wedding day May 25, 2008.
Started Clomid Jan-April 2012.
Referred to RFP June 2012.
First consult at RFP November 2012.
First IVF cycle on antagonist protocol (GonalF, Luveris) January 2013.
Transferred two day-3 embryos, had severe OHSS, lost one twin between 7-13 weeks but was expecting one little one October 2013.
Found out at 6 mos that our little one had died weeks earlier and had to induce and deliver stillborn, July 25, 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. :/
Tumour is definitely producing Aldosterone (causes high blood pressure) and Cortisol. Lucky me, only 34 similar cases recorded in the world! Tumour removed May 2014.
Approached about a possible adoption March 2014. Rush through all the paperwork and process.
Charlotte Evangeline born June 27, 2014. We brought her home on July 7 and held our breath for 10 days until she officially became ours.
Surprise BFP October 2014. Due to wonky cycles, ultrasounds convince Doctors I have a blighted ovum but detailed ultrasound reveals heartbeat at 6w3d. On progesterone support and waiting to see if pregnancy is still viable. Holding our breath again.
Adalyn Marie born on June 9, 2014 after a roller coaster pregnancy.

Do you get to wear a tiara all day ILMD? Because in absence of a tiara or maybe being the female stand in for Channing Tatum's love scenes...I see no viable reason to commute 2 hours for work.... ;)

I'm sure this is all in my head, but the Suprefact is making me feel fat(ter).

 

Very annoyed.

Suprefact made me puff up. It also gave me insomnia which made me want to eat salty, fatty foods.

EFF!  How do I keep forgetting about the insomnia?!  Two EARLY mornings in a row I just lay there wondering why I can't get back to sleep.

Yup. It shuts down the pituitary gland to suppress ovarian function. Unfortunately, the pituitary gland also produces hormones that impact sleep. Some people aren't sensitive to it. For those of us that are it really, really sucks.

Can I join ladies ?

I don't know what I need/ want. I gained 5 lbs while cycling in March and then miscarried. Since then I cannot lose it!!!!!!!!! All my clothes are all just a bit too tight. And after blowing 6000 on failed cycles this year I'm not really wanting to buy new clothes ! I'll finally lose 2-3 lbs then a week later back up to where I was. Incredibly frustrating 😡. I exercise diligently and eat well. I think my problem may be portion size... Too much 'healthy' food. I'm also hypothyroid since last year. I think this is 80 percent of my problem. I only walk. I don't want to jeopardize my upcoming cycle by going to hard core. I lost three lbs while cycling in sept and my lining was 💩. Probably related?

Hey Bug!

 

I've been diligently walking every night as well.  I haven't gotten on a scale because I don't 'feel' like there's a difference.

I had my weight watchers weigh in today. I haven't been there since before Thanksgiving so I was worried. I am down 2.6 lbs for a total of 15.4 lbs. It would have been nice to be down more since it has been 3 weeks, but at least I lost something.

Welcome to the group Bug. Hypothyroidism definitely makes weight loss more challenging, and cycling.

Two Costco sized boxes of Halloween candy (mini chocolate bars). Still a week to go until Halloween. 

 

On the upside, I've been walking as well.

I always buy candy I don't like to hand out. It's not bad candy, just not to my taste.

We have this candy off of the back of a truck store where you can buy 10 full size candy bars for $4.50/pack. I always get them because I would never sit down and eat a whole candy bar in one sitting...removes the temptation. :-)

In my mind a hand full of mini bars isn't as bad as a big chocolate bar.
