Its Time

To drag my fat, war weary ass back on that beaten up old infertility donkey! You know, the real stubborn one that refuses to go forwards or backwards, that old donkey that seems to land you in the same place regardless of the bumpy ride or of the ugly ( and sometimes not so ugly) scenery along the way…………

So I got on the scale this morning and got a big freaking fright – 11kg’s total weight gain since my last failed IVF in March – POA – put my big fat butt on a diet like as in ASAP! No more wine and chippie parties all by myself. No more shooters cos hey its fun! No more champagne cocktails cos lets celebrate how suck hairball life can be. Its time to knuckle down to some business. I hear you all going “yeah right – we’ve heard that before” but this time I mean business. I’ve moved out my FET slightly just to try and get into better shape, so now I’m hoping to cycle again late in August or early September (also gives me a chance to build up some moola seen as I”ve been having such a good time over the last few months that I spent it all!!!).

So here is my full POA:

  1. Start following my diet as laid out by the dietitian I was seeing.
  2. I have my first appointment with an Intuitive Healer on Saturday, kinda scared for that but also really excited to see what she picks up.
  3. I’ve found a new Chirowho uses SOT blocks and other far less rough techniques and have already discussed with him working on the nerves that stimulate the blood supply to my uterus in preparation for the FET, also hoping it will help me cope with the stress a bit better. I’ve had two sessions so far and I’m already feeling a difference especially with the almost unbearable tension in my neck & right shoulder.

So help keep me accountable my checking out my progress here!

    That is fantastic! And boy do I know the feeling. I have to get myself back on track as well. I have been overindulging in the bad stuff lately. I’m very interested in your Chiro. I have hectic back and neck pain and constantly have to put heat on it or strech. I’ll be getting on track with you.

    Oh man, how interesting, maybe it’s the cycle of the moon or something but I pulled out my old eating plan too from last year and went shopping on Tuesday for all the right foods, I know my goal isn’t to loose weight but it’s definitely trying not to put on much, which I have done so far, given my need for Chocolate and protein, which I never enjoyed previously.

    I’ll be watching…

    I feel with you. My fat pants felt tight yesterday… 🙁 so I’m also also dragging the old bum back to gym for a whipping three times a week from now on. It’s tough balancing the act of comforting oneself after disappointments yet still being tough on oneself. Wish I can find a replacement for that cupcake (eh, or two, or five, or a dozen a day for a month) after a negative beta. Sigh. See you in the gym.

    Good luck with you weight loss hon! I stared my diet yesterday, and last night for the fist time in 2 months did not have any drinks. My body got such a shock when I had water yesterday, probably the 1st time in two months too. LOL! You can do this! We’ll be behind you all the way! I think your intuitive healeing session will be just what the Dr ordered.
