I can’t seem to stop thinking about how much weight I’ve put on since coming back from holiday in August and what effect it’ll have on my IVF cycle being successful.
I had hoped to be 8st 7lbs before my first clinic appointment on the 07 September but alas that wasn’t to be. I started off very well and managed to shift 3.5lbs in 2 weeks but now I’ve gained 5lbs more than what I was before I went on holiday! Go figure… I was on a cruise where the food and drink was plentiful…how can this be!! I’m kidding myself on, I know how it happened…I just don’t seem to care what I eat. It’s like “sod them all, I will have chips with everything”!!
So now I’m thinking “if only I could lose some weight before I start on the injections”. I’ve only got 10 days to lose a stone…that’s not going to happen!! So I was thinking even if I could lose some weight by then, surely I’ll feel better (I keep telling myself how I’ll feel so much better if only I were to lose half a stone!).
I’ve got out an old Scottish Slimmers “Double Boost Week” planner and I plan on sticking to that for a whole week (I’ve never managed one day on it before)… am I kidding myself???
I did read on the web that your changes of IVF being successful where increased if your BMI is under 30, luckily at the moment mine’s is only 26.7! I say ONLY but I am appalled that it is as high as this!
And to make things worse a friend of mines has told me about her cousin who “ballooned” once she started injections??
I honestly dread to think what I’m going to look like…Jabba the Hut springs to mind!!!
