Well I am returning properly again. I have been having a little looksy through the boards throughout my pregnancy and period breast feeding knowing that I would come back. I stopped breastfeeding about 2 weeks ago after Emma was getting increasingly irritable and then she was hardly putting on any weight and I thought to myself she's had a good solid 3 months of my milk now she NEEDS to put on more weight so went to formula. It's been quite good as her irritability has lessened (we ALL know what it feels like to be hungry and irritable is the word) and leaving her for a little bit is easier knowing others can feed her. So I feel at peace with that decision now and ready to work on me again.
Strangely enough it would seem that pregnancy has been reasonable on my body as I craved fruit and salad and still went out alot walking, so after the (horrendous) birth I was lighter than before I got pregnant, and what with breastfeeding and still walking everywhere I am the lightest I have been in years, and only a stone heavier than I was on my wedding day 6 and a half years ago. So I am embracing this opportunity and going to the only eating plan that I really enjoy and have been able to stick to on a longer term basis. So back to induction. Day 3 today and I feel fine, although even starting this my hunger level was not bad, I am again feeling like I don't need to eat that much but still going and just eating small amounts really just getting a good amount of what we can have in induction, but looking forward to being out of induction for my strawberries, mmmmm.
I'm going to try to make it on here at least once a day, but what with baby Emma, and me going back to work next week it's going to be hard as my smartphone has packed up and rather than putting any cash aside for a new one all of my money magically seems to disappear but Emma's christmas present pile is getting larger and I need to stop it.
Any how, hello to my friends old and new, but Cokes is back on it (and on day 3 I feel more confident to say that, lol!) xxx
