Default Thanks so much guys!

Guys thanks so much for thinking of me!

Yes I have lost 41 lbs since my surgery 10 weeks ago and I feel great! Have gone from a size 28/30 to a size 22 and I am throwing away old clothes left right and centre!

This really was the best decision I have ever made it is so good being free of my addiction to food and stuffing my face. I eat 3 small and sensible meals a day and yes I can eat what I like with no problems. I dont think about food, I dont crave any foods because I truly can eat what I like so it becomes a non issue. I can not advocate this surgery enough I cant believe the years I wasted being so obese.

My mind now however wanders more and more to ttc again. I feel a bit of a fraud lurking here daily while on such a long break but cant tear myself away. I am desperate to be a mom and its so hard with my dh sister being newly pregnant and lots of folk at my work getting accidentally pregnant. I have been told by my surgeon that I need to wait 7-12 months before ttc again which I will do.

I actually have a councelling appointment with my nurse at our fertility clinic tomorrow at 2pm to chat about my feelings about it all and plan for next years treatment. I am one of these folk that can only be settled when I know what I am doing. I want to start ttc asap but also want to be as thin as possible so as to maximise my chances of it working. We have had 7 DIUI and my clinic truly believes after testing me for EVERYTHING possible and it all being more than perfect that it is my weight affecting the outcome.

So for the moment I have to wait and hope the future holds our dreams, my dh is finding it very hard this break he just wants to be a dad. Dh has taken it quite hard his baby sister being pregnant after 2 months trying and getting to do the telling his mom the good news routine it is cutting him up inside.

Sorry my post got longer than I expected! Thanks for reading if you got this far!!!

Time will fly - just continue to take care of yourself and before you know it you'll be TTC again. I know that right now it seems like forever but it WILL come soon. I can't wait to see a pic - I bet you look fabulous!!!
