Catch Up

Well hello! It's been a while..... quite a while infact. This year has started out busily and very excitingly for me and my family, so blogging and other things I enjoy seem to have taken a back seat unfortunately. So I have found myself at home, on a Saturday, children away and hubby doing some work in the garden, so I thought this is a time to get on the blog!

So as I mentioned in my new year post, I have been on Slimming World since January, and in total now, I have lost 2 Stone 4lbs :) I am so happy with how I've done so far, I was a little sceptical about how much it was actually going to work after doing diets in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised. For me, it has taught me how to eat more fresh food, and also cooking meals from scratch, such as Spaghetti Bolognase. In the past, I would just cook some mince and through in a jar of pasta sauce. I've learnt about cooking with fresh ingredients and simple dinners that take not too much longer than my old ways.

Then, on the 1st March, we found out I was pregnant! My goal all along was to lose weight so that hubby and I could try for a baby. We had been trying for a few years without any luck, so I thought a change in lifestyle, and health may play a part in us conceiving. And it looks like it worked! I am now 13 weeks pregnant. Still feels weird saying it! We have been trying for so long, I kind of gave up hoping, which I guess could have also helped us, Not worrying or stressing about getting pregnant.

So, I am now in the process of buying maternity clothes and bits and pieces, so I want to share my views and experiences when I do :) When I did start looking a potential clothes, I couldn't find many stores that did plus size, but I will be bringing some information and hopefully reviews when I get some bits.

So now I am going to get writing some posts and sorting pictures, maybe once I'm looking a little less tired - I am suffering from fatigue during this part of the pregnancy - but hopefully that will be ending soon!
