Here's the thread to chat and encourage each other through our weight loss journeys!! You don't need to write your actual weight down or pounds loss: you can use percentages!

Your starting weight: 166 in February 2010
Your weight now: I will come back to this as I haven't weighed myself in a while!
Your goal: 127 or less
Your height: 5'2.5"
How are you doing it? The past few days have been good! I am eating healthy food and have been cycling on my bike for 30-40 minutes plus using dumbbells and ankle weights. I also just changed my shoes which had been making me quite tired, so that helps!

Faeriewings - I have the exact same problem with my stomach! I'm a teacher and sometimes I catch my students eyeing my stomach and I'm paranoid they're wondering if I'm PG. I remember back at the beginning of the school year, one of my 1st graders gave me a hug and patted my belly while saying something like, "the baby's getting bigger!" and I was like, "um, I'm not PG!" I fear I'm going to show much more quickly with #2 since I've still got some leftovers from when I was PG with #1.

Btw, what's the unique donut? ;-)

AFM - Still doing Myfitnesspal on my phone and have been better about it on weekdays than weekends. Last weigh in I was around 201 so getting closer to 200 but just can't seem to break that mark. I made a mistake and didn't count anything last weekend since it was our anniversary and DD was staying at my parents' house for the night and DH and I both totally overate and gained a few pounds so it seems I've got to keep it up 7 days/week. This morning I overslept and had to grab McD's on my way to work and that totally blew my count for today. I had no idea that a sausage/egg/cheese McGriddle has over 500 calories in it! Yikes!!

I'm on spring break starting today which means I'll probably be up late more so I've really gotta watch to make sure I don't get sucked into late-night snacking, like I did over Christmas break.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Erin,

I sent you a PM but it asked me to chose from two different screen names (different creation dates) so I picked the one that had the most posts. Hopefully it gets to you, if not, let me know. :-)

Hi Christine, it doesn't appear that I received it...checked my private message inbox thing here in my ivillage profile and also both of my email addresses and nothing.

Just a general question for everyone...anybody else worried that they will gain way too much weight during pregnancy?

I know I was worried about gaining a lot of weight with DD, but I didn't.
