It’s OK! I’m still here!
I have just been…lazy/distracted/busy.
I’ve had some amazing things going on and I’m excited to share!
Firstly – I wrote an article and submitted it to a website and they published it! That was extremely exciting for me. You can check it out here. Keep an eye out on that site – you never know when you’ll see my name again. *wink, wink*
Secondly – We got a date for Marky’s (Biggest-Little) surgery! June 6th my little man with be getting the triple whammy. Adenotonsilectomy, hernia repair & tear duct clearance. I can’t wait for him to be able to breathe properly.
Thirdly – I’ve made a very big decision. On June 20th I will be going under the knife myself. I’m having weightloss surgery. More specifically, the gastric sleeve.
I have struggled with my weight all my life. I’ve tried diets, exercise and medication and no matter how hard I work I either don’t lose, or stall and put it back on. I suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome which makes it incredibly difficult to shed the kilos. I’m sick of being this way. I’m sick of being uncomfortable all the time. And while some think I’m taking the easy way out, I am actually making a decision that will affect my life forever. This was a huge decision and a lot of thought was put into it.
I am going to lose some weight, fix some of my health issues and get exercising. I need to teach my children how to be healthy. I’m also hoping that getting physically fit will help me to become more mentally fit.
So there it is. It’s big and scary and exciting. I know that some people don’t get it, but that’s ok. They don’t need to. They just need to trust me, trust that I know best for myself, and support me.
So I’ve had a big couple of weeks (we also got a new-to-us car, sold some big items that were just collecting dust, and had some breakdowns) and I have a huge month ahead. I can handle it (I hope), I have an amazing husband by my side, three gorgeous boys to make me laugh, and a beautiful kitty to cuddle.
Come at me!
Today’s little wins:
Mumma: Made a decision to change my life for the better.
Biggest-Little: He is rocking it at child care. After a rough start he is finally coming out of his shell and enjoying Tuesdays.
Middle-Little: Sang ‘Twinkle, Twinkle’ to me. Actions included. Gorgeous.
Smallest-Little: Had an appointment at the child health nurse today. He’s 67cm long and 7.2kgs which puts him around 85th% for length and 50th% for weight. He’s growing beautifully. And he’s so darn cute! I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to be his mumma.
