Weight Watchers 2011 - Page 2

post #21 of 32

Did a longer reply but lost it...  Long story short: lost 2 at my last weigh in!  Feeling so inspired and more in control.  I'm also loosening up re: childcare at our gym.  I figure the kids love it and I need a workout and shower a few times a week.  It's going great- I've found that I love step aerobics, oddly.

Great loss, snuggly!!

 

I'm down to losing the last bit of weight and I feel like the last 10 lbs isn't going to budge as easily.  Especially with Finn only being 3 months old.  I kept on a good 10 lbs of nursing padding the last time, no matter how hard I worked out/ate right.  We shall see, I suppose!

I know this post was a long time ago, but I saw that your vegan and I'm a struggling vegan right now.  I have had a hard time even sticking to my vegetarian ways since getting pregnant.  This is my first pregnancy and I just want some advice as to how can I eat well for the baby during pregnancy and not blow up to great, catastrophic proportions?  I intend on joining WW after the birth...they saw 6 to 8 weeks after when milk supply is built up.  Any advice on tricks now to not get out of control?  How to satisfy meat cravings on a vegan diet?

You might want to look at the vegetarain/vegan forum. This gets discussed from time to time. Not the how to not gain weight part, but the not eat meat part. I think there've been a few threads in the last couple months that might help you.

I craved meat big time with this last pg.  I even nicknamed him Baby Dino when he was in my belly!! Sometimes it can be that your body is craving protein, but I didn't find this was the case.  I wasn't craving healthy meat, but fried chicken, grease, etc.  So I'd get fries from KFC (or something equally gross) without actually eating meat.  I craved hot dogs for a while, too, so I got lots of Smart Dogs and went to town.  Salt can help with morning sickness, too.

I ate normally, didn't overindulge, but I still ended up gaining 49 lbs.  With my first pg I gained 60, so I think I just gain a lot.

Def check out the veg forum -- lots of pg mamas deal with this stuff. 

 

This weeks weigh in was a bit of a bummer - only lost .8.  Oh well.  I'm down to the last 10-11 lbs so I kind of figured this might happen.

When I was achieving lifetime (which I need to work on again) I lost 0.2 pounds a week. Almost every week. I took the attitude that at least I was down. Eventually I lost the weight. 

 

Of course, now we've had to totally change our diet, my husband's work hours were cut so I'm working, and the knew foods we're discovering are just so tasty. I will lose the weight again. Someday.

 

Anyway, Baby Cakes. Congrats on losing 0.8 pounds. That's great and I'm envious.

Oh my... My poor kids (and dh and self) have been sick for the past couple weeks. Fevers, bad congestion, yuck.  I finally feel like we've turned a corner.  The only silver lining to this?  Despite not tracking or exercising or trying to at all I lost over three pounds (over the last two weeks).  Now solidly in the 140s and not planning to visit 150 again!  The oddest thing about this illness for me was I completely lost my sense of taste. So strange to be eating but not tasting a thing!  I think it is starting to come back today.  I hope that you are all healthy and well!
