Stopping TTC

DH and I had a talk about our health and weight and so we bought a treadmill (got it yesterday) and have decided to loose weight instead. Being that I have BP issues it might be way better anyway if I lost these 30 lbs I've gained since my mom passed. Sad Then in about 2 or 3 months we will start again. We will not prevent but I won't be tracking O at all. I will still be here to hang out with you girls of course!!!!

Thanks ladies. Did my first workout tonight. Only 40 minutes but I was impressed on my ability to jog. Smile I did half and half. I didn't do too much because I haven't exercised in years...LOL!! Now onto the eating healthier... Sad that's my downfall!!

Hey 40 minutes is something! Great job. Smile

I highly recommend the Couch to 5K program, which you can find through a Google search, and Sparkpeople.com is great, and it's free! You can get food plans with a grocery list to print out, and calorie-counting is a breeze. I used those two things, plus Jillian Michael's 30-day Shred (which I did 3x a week, not every day), and have lost 25 lbs. so far (am now in a healthy weight range). I hope to lose about 10 more lbs to get to my ideal goal weight.

Good for you!! Smile It's a fantastic start! My downfall is exercise. I've promised myself I will do better. I've got weight to lose as well. We took ttc breaks over our 7+ year journey. It's good to take a break and refocus for a bit.
