I am starting this blog to help to motivate myself even more on this weight loss journey. I started just after Christmas 2009 and I know it will be a long journey but one I lknow will be worth it in the end. This has been a long time coming....

6 Months Cooked!

Hello there my lovelies, I hope you are all well. I know I said I didn't want to bore you all with baby ramblings, but I also seem to have lost the ability to type anything at all! I do apologise!

Bean is now six months cooked, so three to go (around 13 weeks) to the due date! I hope it takes after me and is nice and prompt...

Here is a picture taken last Saturday before Mr B and I went out for date night, to say I'm now as far gone as I am I don't think I'm huge just yet!

All the changes that are supposed to happen to your during pregnancy are happening, and it's freaking me out if I'm honest. The fact that my body is no longer my own, and I have no control over how much it grows or stretches is really difficult to get my head round. I had got used to the way it was shrinking and the amount of energy I had, and now I have very little energy and a bump that makes it hard to reach things on the floor!

The doctors have referred me for counselling as my head mush is getting a hell of a lot worse. I am so thrilled to be having this baby but I really cannot get my head around it at all. I suppose when you've been told for the majority of your life that you will never be able to have kids, it takes some getting used to when all of a sudden you can. I'm just hoping that maternal instinct takes over once the baby is here.

I was doing a spot of nesting the other day and found all the WW mags, trackers and books from before I found out. It feels like a million years since I was tracking, and to be honest I can't wait to get back on it after Bean is here (obviously after the 6/8 weeks you have to wait). My diet isn't too bad really, fruit is back in favour big style. But unfortunately so is chocolate, I even passed up the chance to have a nice desert on date night as I needed a Mars Bar instead!!! CRAZY!!!

Any way, I shall update you all soon,




  1. Well I for one love the baby ramblings! And accompanying pics - you look all lovely and glowy.

    Hope the counselling helps - it is a MASSIVE thing to have to come to terms with so no wonder you're a wee bit mushy (love that expression by the way)


  2. Aw little Bean is getting big now.

    I'm sure your maternal instincts will be in full effect when Bean arrives so don't panic, us readers know you will be a fantastic mum.

    I hope your counselling goes well too, it must be hard to come to terms with having your bean cooking after believing you may not have one. I'm sure everything will fit into place in time.
