I want to be "bony".... but I'd rather lift.
I have NEVER been what could be called "skinny". I have no recollection from my childhood of a time when I looked around at my peers and thought I looked as thin as they were. I was ALWAYS the "big" girl. I was ALWAYS the girl who didn't fit ... Read more

Hair today, gone tomorrow, back in a year or two.
So in addition to changing my body, I also decided about 6 months ago that I'd like to re-grow my hair. I had long curly hair before my wedding in 2012, but over the years I went shorter and shorter and after we had our son, I chopped it right ... Read more
Aaaawwww, thanks babe! And also..... Really?
Yesterday, I overheard a conversation between my son and husband while they were playing outside on the deck. My son asked whether he's getting bigger and, of course, daddy replies yes he is. So my son asked whether mommy is also getting bigge... Read more
Why do people have to be so negatively positive?????
Okay, let me explain! I really want to lose another 8kg. When I look at my body and gauge the amount of fat still on it, that is a reasonable amount of FAT to lose. I also take into account my body shape, my body composition, BMI, past weight... Read more

Feedback after last visit to weight loss specialist.
So she was very happy with the 8kg that I had lost since our first consultation five weeks ago. She increased my dosage of Victoza to the maximum per day, 1.8mg. I have been on the increased dosage since Thursday last week (today is Monday) an... Read more
I've had tick bite fever, but I'm better now. Missing my workouts!!
Last Monday afternoon, 12 August, I started feeling really sick. I thought that maybe my lunch had been too big or too fatty (although it was really not), since I felt like I had a bloated stomach and I felt dizzy and a bit nauseated.

So the IVF doc's gone and moved the goal posts AGAIN!!!
He phoned me yesterday to discuss my really poor AMH results. He is very worried that I won't have any eggs left to even DO IVF in November, so he encouraged me to get the procedure done sooner. It freaks me out that he thinks one month could ... Read more
I didn't get the job I so badly wanted!!
I'm so bleak. Today I heard that the company I'd interviewed at on Monday, had given the job to an internal candidate. This was in spite of the fact that the regional manager who interviewed me had recommended they hire me, because he liked me... Read more
