Obviously, it's to get pregnant.
But as I've found out, I don't really have any control over that.
So - between now and ER date (which should be in the middle of July) I want to lose 15 pounds. That is about 3 months from now.... and it should be doable. Especially for someone like me, who easily has 50 pounds to lose.
I've often stressed myself out by doing such dumb things as googling 'High BMI and IVF success', or 'Impact of High BMI on Fertility' (don't do it, trust me). From everything that my doctor has said, my weight isn't the issue. I don't have PCOS and my blood work always comes back 'normal'. My blood pressure is low. Even with that knowledge, I always have this nagging feeling in the back of my head that it is my weight. But, as with most overweight people, it's a pretty big struggle to do anything about it. Last year, I gave myself a kick in the pants, and lost 25 pounds. But I stalled at that point.
Today, I'm declaring that I'm doing something about it. I'm already going to Bikram Yoga 4 times a week. I'm going to start closely following Weight Watchers, and add in either walking or swimming each day. And I'm going to report my progress here every Weds. I'm not going to post my actual weight - but I'll say how many days of yoga, how many days of walking/swimming, and pounds lost. I'll even start tomorrow, even though I didn't make this pledge to myself until Saturday.
Good times, good times.
