Safe weight loss during pregnancy
sweetoak10 posted:
Hi! I'm wondering if I can safely lose weight and best plan for doing so to have a healthy pregnancy. I am 5'4" and 180 lbs so obese and only 5 weeks pregnant. I'd like to know how many calories I should consume to stay safe but allow weight loss to have a healthy pregnancy. Any suggestions?
