As for losing weight, I've had the most success on low-carb/low-sugar diets. I've done the low-fat thing and it just makes me cranky and hungry. But I've lost over 40lbs on a variation of Atkins (mostly whole foods) and metformin. The bonus of losing weight is that your insulin resistance improves as well, so you're even *more* likely to conceive than with just metformin.

We conceived dd first month off the pill, but we've had 2 mc since then. The RE will probably want me to do metformin when we're done nursing and ready to try. I'm still not sure how I feel about metformin.

Hi willo, Kristeremy, kheren!
I didn't do any other fast stroller workouts last week because I have been SO FREAKING TIRED...DD had roseola and is also teething and I just feel that I have not slept in forever (see my thread in Family Bed!).
But, I was reading a blog today and was reminded of something I had forgotten about...have you guys heard about the Shangri-La Diet? Supposedly it really works - is not a fad diet - but it's really weird, you drink OIL in the morning and somehow it helps you not want "bad" food?
I know, it sounds like a fad diet. But if you Google it you will find that it is actually based on sound principles. I am thinking I might try this. I cannot seem to do the sugar-free thing (even for 21 days - hanging head in shame) - I just have no willpower these days.
