REALLY CONFUSED CAN I TAKE LT WHILE TTCing?

#1
Hiya Everyone

I was planning going back onto LT today. I wanted to ease myself into an official start on 8th January after my last Christmas meal out on Monday 7th January. This I have to say is my way of not pigging out until the 8th January so my nonsense has some sense!!! I have put on 8 lbs over Christmas and want them off asap.

I went to my Chemist to get my week supply and because I am trying to conceive they said they can't give it to me and need to phone me back. They haven't phoned yet so it looks like it will be tomorrow.

I spoke to them before Christmas and they said no to LT until after 6 weeks. (Unfortunately I suffered a miscarriage in November) They said come back in the New Year and I am more likely to conceive if I am actively dieting.

I have now called back to start on LT again as agreed and now they are suggesting I can't have it as I have a week to go before I find out if my Christmas bonking has worked!!! Wish they would make up their fecking minds!!!:mad:

Help - this is driving me crazy - surely I can do LT until I find out for definate.

If what they are implying today is anything to go by this would mean I can do LT for two weeks, then eat normally for two weeks then LT for two weeks, then normal for two weeks etc etc - how the hell will this work? :mad::sigh:

Really need your advice girls as I am fuming and really p*ssed off.

Hmm, I'm not sure what the official medical stance would be but I'm afraid I don't think LT is a suitable diet is you aer trying to conceive.

Part of the reason I am on the diet is because we were unable to conceive, but I am using birth control until I achieve my goal and am maintaining.

Although slower at losing weight, I would have though trying to eat sensibly would be a better diet for you while you are trying to achieve and supporting a new life in the first couple of weeks.

Sorry that's not a very positive response.

Rachelle - have you had a chat with your doctor about dieting when trying actively to concieve? I would take his/her advice on what the best thing to do is....I did get pregnant while I was on LT but I though I couldnt get pregnant....

Would you consider giving yourself a three month break from trying to get pregnant - which means you can concentrate on the diet and loose up to 3 stone or more....

Big Hugs - this is a difficult one!

Hiya

I really don't want to waste months to lose weight. I would like to do it while trying. My time is running out to have children as I suffer from endometriosis that is worsening so I feel torn. Stopping trying for a couple of months may be an option if I need some treatment for it like a Laporoscropy with diathermy but they still won't give me LT then will they?

I really am in a sticky situation and it looks as though Slimming World may have to be an option again for me as this is the only one recommended by Doctors. I hate Slimming World to diet - I lose weight so slowly if at all on it and the leader just goes on and on about herself - I never get anything useful from staying to class. Hey hum - back to the drawing board.

Lipotrim HO have come back to me and said they will not give it to me for the final two weeks of my cycle.

I can have it the first two weeks of my cycle so it looks like I will doing it the hard way. Two weeks off and two weeks on.:sigh:

The first week kills me on LT until ketosis kicks in and I will have to do this every month. Not sure I have what it takes but I will give it my best shot.

GOT TO FEEL POSITIVE, GOT TO FEEL INSPIRED, GOT TO GET UP AND GET MOVING!!:D

Lol

Oh hugs honey...thats tough....although you could try an Atkins type diet for the other two weeks and that should help to keep you in ketosis....Shazpaz has being doing a mixture of LT and Atkins and had good results......

Thanks Bea
Could you get Shazpaz to contact me if poss? Haven't a clue how to do it and would like to hear from her as doing both is music to my ears!
Hope you don't mind.
