About a year ago I began seeing my OB/GYN because of infrequent periods and the thought that I wanted to soon be pregnant. He first mentioned that being overweight probally had a correlation. I was in such denial thinking that couldn't possibly be it! To my surprise I seem to be at great risk of being diagnosed with insulin intolerance due to obesity. I lost 20 lbs and have drastically improved my numbers. I'm scared that I haven't lost enough weight and that as soon as I get pregnant by 3rd trimester I will end up on a drug for the insulin/BS issues. I spent months trying to get my husband on track with a healthy lifestyle. I just feel so defeated because now he has lost 60 lbs (working out religiously, good diet) and here i'm floundering. I feel left behind and still the 'fat one'. I'm excited for him, he looks great. But he constantly talks about how great he looks. Meanwhile I sit here thinking about how I look incredibly unattractive and the fact I might just gain everything I struggled to lose with pregnancy. I don't get how i struggle so hard and work my ass off...and he can just switch his mind and motivation from couch potato to Buff stud in a matter of months. Anyone else go through something similiar?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
