I have been told that I need to lose weight in order to get pregnant. I have always been big my whole life. I want to lose weight not just for that but so I can accturally feel good about myself. My doctor has told me that she don't care what diet I go on, but to make sure I can do it. I am not sure how to do it. I weigh 325 now and want to get to 250. I know that will make a big difference. I have people to support me but I don't understand how to know what to eat and when thoughout the day. My doctor suggested a 1800 calorie diet.. Please someone help me. View Thread
Thank you for the advice. I think my problem is 1. I don't usually eat breakfast. I am usually in a hurry to get off to work or I am just not hungry. 2. I don't like very much meat. I could get away with being a vegatiarian but my husband won't let me. He has to have his meat. 3. portion control. I have never been able to use it. I have always ate when I was hungry and didn't stop til i felt full. My biggest problem is pasta and cheese. I could live off of it but I know it isn't good.View Thread
