Yay for this thread!!!! Can't remember how I found it - but I really don't care either!
According to my BMI, I have about 140lbs to lose.... but if I lose that much I'll look ridiculous (btdt!)... so I'm aiming for a total loss of around 100lbs. Right now, though, I'm going for 40. My sugar levels are good, my BP is great (I have them checked at the gym because it's nigh impossible to find a doctor around here who will look past the external. I went in for a throat infection just over a year ago (I don't get sick!) and the first thing I was told was "you need to lose weight". For a throat infection??? Talk about getting your money's worth... ).
Anyway, rant over.
Re: diet - we eat an almost-exclusive whole foods diet... I hate the taste of processed stuff, and it sends my DS loopy. So USUALLY if we have "treats" they're home-made, so at least I know what's in them. Christmas has been a real PITA for going off that though.... oops.
OTOH, I still prefer to eat a heap of fruit and veg, rather than treats.
Re: exercise - I have been incredibly slack for the last 2 months, after my most recent m/c at the beginning of November I have only been to the gym every week/fortnight... but am getting back properly tomorrow (can't see the point of paying for it if I'm not going to use it). I usually (well, before November) go almost every morning at 6am (5 or 6 days a week), before DH and DS wake up... it's my "me time". Tomorrow I'll get DH to take DS for a swim while I'm in the gym (same complex).
We are TTC... so I'm concentrating on eating right and getting back to being more active.... so I shouldn't have to change too much if I do conceive. That's the plan, anyway.
AtYourCervices: I LOVE your siggie!!!! My DH sings it All. The. Time.... and now DS does as well - even though he's never seen the movie!
