The Gallery.. Birth










Today’s theme on The Gallery is “Birth”. I could easily have done something about the birth of either of my lovely boys but decided not to. Instead I’m posting about the birth of a new me!

I’ve struggled with my weight for years, partly because of pcos, partly because I’m an emotional eater. If I’m tired or pee’d off, I find myself pigging out. After Taylor was born in November we knew we didn’t want more children. I have spent years being poked and prodded, trying this and that, countless disappointments when trying to get pregnant. All the while struggling with the pressure of losing weight and exercising more to help the process.
Enough! We are thrilled to have two happy and healthy boys, and I’ve decided it’s time I see myself as a woman, rather than a prospective incubator.

So, 25lb off, I feel great! I’m slowly picking up the exercise (because I want to!) and feel like the Nicki who used to be around before the word “infertility” started to define me. And you know what? I’m here to stay! I’ve sacked Fatclub and use ThinkingSlimmer now to help with my food issues and am loving the extra energy I have.
So, the birth of a new me… I’m still growing and aren’t quite where I want to be yet, but all is feeling pretty damn good!
