Loosing weight while pregnant safely
I had my daughter 8 months ago. I weight 120kg when i gave birth to her and i really strugle with my pubic bone from week 28. I have since joined weighless and lost a few kg. We just got a huge suprise to find out i am pregnant again! I want to know if its okey to still lose weight while i am pregnant as i am about 105kg now and i am eating alot. How can it be wrong to lose weight if i am just eating healthy...i am not restricting my body of any kalories. I am not doing this because i want to loose weight to look skinnier because i am tall you dont notice i weigh that much. But i am doing this so that i can have a healty baby and healty pregnancy, not a pregnancy filled with pain and discomfort!
On weightless i eat ALOT more than what i usaly eat but its not the fried chips and Junk.

As long as you eat healthily it is fine. Weighless may have a special diet for pregnant women. Check with them.
