TTC Issue ~ Mrs. Gioia ~ TTC since May 2013; 3 kids; Kissimmee, Florida 471 posts

I think my weight is the issue. So I am going to start trying to lose weight again. No diet pills or anything like that. Don't want to take them when I am ttc. Just controlling what I eat. Which is difficult working in mcdonalds and all. :roll:

Apple Slices! Salad! Grilled chicken patties only, no bread. There's lots you can do to curb the extra calories and carbs there. I used to work in a fast food chicken joint and had the same problem.



I know its hard to resist burgers, fried chicken and fries when you smell it... but think about that baby!

Thanks, and it is also the soda. I have been trying to stick to water or powerade.

Yes...it is hard, but remember what you are doing it for. I was going to diet as well, but then I thought about the fact that im not that much heavier now than when I graduated high school!

but this is the thing; u may not have to lose a certain amount....maybe once your body feels the change in activity and food it will go into over drive.

I have struggled with my weight for forever so I feel your pain. Stay away from powerade though. Has tons of sugar. You might as well drink soda.

Thanks for the tip, but I don't always get breaks at work so I have to sip some. I have issues with getting dizzy if I go too long without eating.

I hear that. What a pain in the butt. A little is fine and if you are light headed than something with sugar might not be a horrible idea. I always try to do more water than sugary drink. It really helps me.
