My very first post about fertility. So as I’ve wrote about a fair few things I’m going to reintroduce myself. I’m on an incredible journey and I thought, you know what, why not share this with the world, well the select few who will read this anyway. 

As stated above I’m 27 and from the UK, however I wish that said USA I’m completely in love with America but that’s a whole new story. I’m from a little village, it’s beautiful, I live in a cottage, how cliché but true. I have a partner of 7 years and two cats, Nova & Lilo. 

We are so ready to be parents, however I have something called PCOS; that again is another story. If you want to know more right now then take a look at this. 

My main reason for posting is because I recently purchased some fertility testers and today was day three for the dreaded monthly, yep good old Mother Nature. This is the test below, in person there was a very faint line. The camera didn’t pic it up. But it basically means there is nothing wrong. I don’t have high FHS levels at all. Which put my mind at rest. From here I’m now going to be taking a ovulation test everyday until I’m ovulating and keep doing right up until my next period. Where I will jot everything down. I want to get a feel for my own body and when I’m ovulating. Last time I just tested on the recommended days but it never worked. So let’s see if this does. I’ll be keeping you guys updated on a weekly basis every Sunday. So please keep checking in.

April?

Goals for April. Maybe I’m being very optimistic but I’d like to lose a stone. Right? Who wouldn’t. I think the real question here is; would it be possible? Am I jumping the gun and thinking this is healthy? Is there even a healthy way to lose that much weight? So many unanswered questions. 
You know what I think, let’s just flipping try shall we? April is that step close to summer, a step closer to that bikini body we all dream of yet that’s still about SIX STONE, yes six whole stone away from that. How will I even know if I’ll like my body or even have the body confidence to strut my stuff. 

One of my main reason for losing weight isn’t that bikini body, that would be nice. However I’m just losing weight to have an even bigger belly, yep you got it. A big pregnant belly. 

I have 124 days to get to lose 4-5 stone! Now that’s the real question. Can I do that. You see I can’t have a child naturally and need to go down the IVF route. 

Motherhood; bittersweet.  

One of my main goals in life is to become a mother. But my main goal is so far out of reach, I have PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome. I’ll do a post in more detail about that at a later date. 

Watching all these status’s on Facebook from people who I went to school with showing the things there children have gotten them and the things they have done today is extremely bittersweet. My main aim is to become a mother and in doing this I have to be 100% healthy, not only for myself but for my child as well. I’d never want to bring a child into the world when I am this overweight and another main issue, I have to do it via IVF and for this to happen I have to be at a very very lower weight that what I am at now. 

Since joining the gym for this reason I’ve also found a new love for the gym and exercising, to become the best I can ever be and after I become a mother I will continue to go to the gym and get healthy to give an example to my child. 

By this time next year I want that card from my bump, and in two years to have so many amazing adventures with my family. 

Blue Monday, & not the YO! Sushi kind…

Hopefully people get the YO! Sushi bit or I’ll look crazy. 

Blue Monday? What is that I hear you ask, well it’s officially the most depressing day of the year… 

It’s pretty much the day where we are missing Christmas and the summer is to far away, we come to the realisation that this is it till sunny weather. 

It’s also around the time we start giving up on our New Years resolutions; I hope all you guys are sticking to yours. So glad I started my healthy lifestyle change back in November, I’ve been a little rubbish with food due to moving house, it’s the worst not being able to cook or anything. 

For me it’s a good Monday, even if I am working, I’ve already been up to the gym, wasn’t the best session I’ve had but at least I got moving, my personal trainer is such a super star for putting up with me. 

So there is a little update, let’s hope we are all sticking to your healthy living. 

Catch you all later you lovely bunch

Oh hey!

The introduction post; it’s an unwritten law that we write these, or even a brief explanation of what this is all about. 
New year, new blog oh and new me… blah blah blah. Yeah, we’ve heard it all before, I hear those whispers, this isn’t a new me though. I’ve been on my journey since 1st November 2016, it’s almost been two months and now I’ve decided to blog about my highs and lows, my achievements and failures. I’m going to show you what it is like to be 260lbs and to start a fitness journey, it’s been so hard but totally worth it, I’m currently 248lbs with a loss of 12lbs, not a lot but I am well on my way to becoming so much healthier. 

I’ll be blogging about fitness, health, gym & life

 I’m excited for blogging my journey and recording every step of the way. So let’s say goodbye to 2016
