You can lose weight as long as you are eating right. I am 15 weeks and have lost 15lbs. I am also a little bigger and once I found out I was pregnant started to eat much healthier. But I make sure I get enough calories I need for baby and I. I know for me just cutting to those calories would make me lose weight. becaue I was eating more then I needed to before. But if you gain some or not anything. Do not stress about it. You are pregnant. We will put on some weight. You can worry about lossing that weight after baby is here.

A good friend of my SIL sister was diagnosed as diabetic when she was pregnant. Not gestational diabetes but type 2 diabetes. She was overweight to begin with and with the special diet she needed to go on to control the diabetes, after the baby was born she weighed less than when what she weighed before she got pregnant. So yes, you can lose weight while pregnant. BUT make sure that you talk to your doctor(ob) first. He/she may have a special diet plan and will probably want to monitor you and the baby closely.

Would anyone (in their 30's-40's) like to video chat? Can talk about anything...
