I don't love the way I look in this photo...apart from my little boobies 😂
Being bed ridden for a month took its toll and a change in my professional activities saw me sedentary for the better part of 2017 but with more autonomy in my work, less time commuting and more time to exercise I am taking control!! My expectations are admittedly high. On my wedding day, I was 20kg lighter than my husband and I told myself that's what I would be for the duration of our marriage but one of the many recent trips to my GP resulted in a conversation about my weight and some fertility testing. Fortunately, I am not pregnant (Kevin and I have decided we don't want children) but I am apparently, at the height of my fertility which is dangerous considering the cocktail of antibiotics I was on pre and post surgery. Luckily Kevin didn't want to go anywhere near me with 4 drains coming out of me so I was pretty confident I wasn't pregnant!
I think it sucks though that my body didn't get the memo that I'm not having children! My GP tells me that even though, I only want to loose a small amount of weight it will never be harder than it is right now and when I'm approaching 50 so I have that to look forward to. I know that sounds sarcastic but I really mean it...had I not put myself through this experience, a little weight gain later in life might have been the least of my worries! .
