Hi everyone, I am currently 5"5 and 190 lbs and 16 weeks pregnant. I have been trying to find exactly how much I should be eating and if it is actually safe to have some fat loss during my pregnancy. I would think that since I am already obese that it may be possible to lose some fat during this pregnancy. I started the pregnancy at 196 and so far the baby is completely healthy even with a 6 lb weight loss. I have tried some online calculators but they give me some crazy amounts of calories like 2000 + which seem really high for a sedentary woman even though I am pregnant.
Anyone have any suggestions?
