So you may or may not know this so if you do bare with. I have struggled of the past 15 years to accept who I am, some days I’m happy, some days I’m not, but I think most people are like that. 

I recently spoke to a friend who is experiencing something similar and after a long chat I felt much better about it all. however it doesn’t take much to get me questioning myself again.

one area I’ve struggle to accept my situation is babies. That’s right those little bubbles of joy and happiness. Sadly I can not conceive naturally, due to a few different reasons, which I won’t go into in to much detail. TMI and all that

However I can influence some of them through weightless. Now as I’m sure some of you may have experienced yourself it’s not just as simple as eating salad for a few days. In my case this requires a mental, physical and emotional commitment that can be hard to start and harder to maintain. My end goal in terms of weightloss is huge (double digits people!). And the support you get it variable. Some people think they are helping when saying ‘having a baby should be the biggest motivation’ yeah of course it is but also a huge pressure! 

I digress. So where was I……… oh yes so again I have set off on a mission to shed the pounds and start my family, that old bio clock is a ticking after all.

my beautifully kind friend Liz made me these following our chat.
