Welcome, Christine (and anyone else who joins)!

I guess I can start by introducing myself...I'm Jimmie, 26, married for 4 years, and DH and I are ready to start a family...but my body is not. I've been putting off seriously losing weight for far too long, and I'm not going to let it stop me any more. :-)

Also, I'm obsessed with anything baby-related, including baby gear, nursery themes, birthing methods, you name it...

Hi Cintia, welcome to the group!

I think we will also try to get pregnant in the spring. Ideally, I want to be due in late November (I don't know why, really, but I do want Christmas to fall in my maternity leave), but we'll see what Mother Nature has in mind as far as that goes. BUT...before we can even think about actually trying, I do need to get the weight off. My goal is to lose 85 lbs or so before we try, but I'd "settle" for 65 lost before trying if it's taking too long. :-)

Hey ya'll! I'm Saucy, I'm getting married on Sept. 21st. I'm almost 40 and my fiance and I are planning on re-starting our family in 2009! I too want to get pregnant in the Spring or early Summer, but I DON'T want a Holiday baby (I'm one myself on Dec. 18th :P). I'm hoping for a January - April baby seeing as everyone in my fiance's family seems to have been born in the Fall!

I could stand to lose about 45 more pounds before we start on the baby quest, and since that's NOT going to happen in the 4 weeks prior to the wedding... I'll work on it more right after!

Pssssst... is there such a thing as an online group baby shower?? *hee*

OH! And I've had that doctor's visit before. My doc was even trying to get me to get pregnant before the wedding due to my age!! I understand where they're coming from, but we're pretty firm in our standards for marriage before children in our case, just because we KNOW we're going to get married. Strangely, if we weren't going to get married, likely I would have just asked him to father a child for me, no strings attached :P That's what I get for having a biological ALARM CLOCK!

OH MY GOD! I am putting it out there...we want to have a baby next year :O)

Whoo Hoo! Bring it on. I soooo need to be part of this group. We have been trying to conceive for about 2 years. Two years ago the doctor told me to lose 50 pounds. I have gained like 30 more since then. I am trying to lose about 80 before we get pregnant. My dream would be to lose 100. We will see. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Wow, it look like we are all basically in the same boat!! I, too, have had "baby fever" for quite awhile, but this past May, out of the blue, my DH told me he was ready too. I seriously cried out of sheer happiness (and then about cried again when I realized the monumental feat in front of me with losing weight first).

I haven't really told anyone else about it, except on my blog (and that was the very first time I put it out there!), and I already got a very excited phone call from my mother this afternoon after she read it (haha).

I'm so excited all you guys have joined the group here! Today was my first day joining Blog to Lose and I'm so impressed with the response! We will definitely have to keep each other motivated!

I'm going to start a couple of discussion threads so the conversations will be easier to follow.

Would any of you be interested in doing a "Wednesday Weigh-In" each week?

I could start a discussion thread to get it going. We wouldn't have to post our actual weight, unless you wanted to, just pounds lost or gained...basically a place for us to cheer each other on and provide encouragement each week.

Let me know if you are interested!

Wednesday works for me!

Hi ladies! Wow! What a great group. I have worked to lose about 20 lbs over the last year. I had a miscarriage last year and gained some back. We have been working with a fertility specialist and now we are trying a new treatment. I have two more months before we pull the "big guns" out. So... I am going to work really hard to lose more weight in the next months.
