Hello, I am 34 years old, and was finding it hard to get pregnant, so went to docs and they started investigating and said weight is a big factor. So I joined a Free NHS weight loss club called "My Weight Matters" local to me. I started out at 23 stone, and now 19.1 stone, but really struggling to lose any more, I seem to have hit a flat line. I am quite a sporty person, I have swam for years cos I love it, and I recently this year started doing the gym some days instead to mix it up a bit, and even started lifting some weights because someone told me that weight lifting is a great fat burner in certain areas.
One of my big problems is that I have polycystic ovaries, and a thick womb lining which they had to have tested twice to check its not pre-cancerous cells, and they fitted me with the Mirena coil, and gave me Provera, all for hormone balance and put me on Metformin to help with weight loss, but all these do tend to fight against my weight loss. Not to mention the fatty cells I already have created their own eustorgen and unbalance me even more....so I'm fighting a hard battle as you can imagine.
I eat salad and fruit for lunch every day (no chocolate or cakes)
I have 1 hot chocolate drink a day as my treat (options)
I do 30 mins intense exercise every morning (sweating a lot!) plus I have 4kg weights at home I use when sat in front of the TV and do 100 sit-ups every day.
dinners can vary, most the time they are healthy, but I guess I am no saint, as I love my dinners and save all my calories for dinner, I do love baked beans, and tortilla wraps, and all types of meat. I am sure dinner is my biggest downfall, but I have reduced them in size a lot since I started my diet.
I almost feel like I know the issue is my dinners, but I'm just checking to see if anyone has other suggestions that will help me?
If I don't keep losing weight, I have no chance of getting pregnant once they remove the Mirena Coil (which is a contraceptive, but helping level hormones for now) so I need a swift kick up the bum to get me motivated!
