June 6th

That the last time I posted.  I have things I want to write about but I am struggling getting the thoughts out of my head and in to a post.  For now I will do a quick update on my weight loss.  The one thing I have kept up to date with is updating my ticker.

If you have been checking my page you will have seen that I am now only 4lb away from my BMI being 30 which will mean the IVF clinic will allow me to start treatment.  I am still months away from hitting the top of the list so I have plenty of time to lose that remaining 4lb plus some of the extra 30 I want to lose to get my BMI down in to the healthy range.  October is officially 18 months of waiting and technically when I should reach the top of the list.  Knowing the NHS as I do it will take a little longer than that.

Friends of ours are getting married September 2013 in Rhodes, Greece.  We would love to go about 20 of our friends have booked or will be booking to go.  Until we know what is happening with the IVF we can't book.  If we start treatment in October and it is successful then it we would have an July baby but if the start dates get delayed until after Christmas and is successful then we may be due a September baby.

Don't get me wrong even as much as I would love to be there for the wedding I want to miss it even more if it means I get the baby we dream of.

Did I mention I wanted to do a half marathon here?  I need to check my posts!  I am hopeful that I may be able to get there for October 28th.  A half marathon is 13.1 miles and yesterday I ran for 5.2 miles and felt good.  I will be adding another mile on to my next run and see how I feel with that.  I have hit the 5 mile point a couple of times now.  Some days I just don't have the energy because of endometriosis and this is a big worry for me for the actual day of the marathon.  Will my body be up to it?  It isn't something I can control which is frustrating beyond belief.

Oh dear I am starting to ramble.  I will post soon about our Race For Life fund raising day with pictures!

  1. Wow you've done so well for yourself. Maybe I'll get off my duff soon enough and start moving more.
