Losing weight WHILE being pregnant?

I'm a little on the chunkier side(5'6" and 220) and I have been losing weight the healthy way(Weight watchers and walking 3 miles 5X's a week). I was wondering if its okay if I keep on walking eating healthy that if I lose weight while being pregnant is okay. Please no bashing!

  • YES! As long as your not doing any crazy dieting its just fine and very healthy for you. The most important thing is to make sure that your getting all your vitamins and are still eating enough. Good Luck!!

  • You can do all these things while your pregnant because it is part of your normal routine and your body is use to it. Your not having to stress your body by forcing yourself so it's not having a negative affect on you. Your being healthy which is great for you and your baby so keep up the good work. People feel like they can just eat the way they want but they need to think about the bigger picture. You definitely are, good job again!!

  • I'm a big mamma and I lose weight when pregnant without trying. My last pregnancy I lost 25 pounds even though I was eating 6 times a day and had gestational diabetes. I think that as long as you let your dr know what you're doing, eating healthy, and getting enough calories for a pregnancy then it would be ok to lose some.
