PCOS Diet Battle

So as always my weight has been up and down, so I decided to do a detox week.

Meals included (not in order)

Homemade Kebab with Sweet Potato and Carrot Fries

Watermelon and Yoghurt

Homemade Cottage Pie with Peas

Chicken Pizza (No Bread) With Sweet Potato Fries and Scrambled Egg with some Cheese

Beef with Rice Noodles and Carrot

After this week (we were naughty and had two takeaways, smaller than usual portions!)

This week resulted in a LOSS OF 2.5KG!!

I am so happy with this but cannot gain anything now, I need to get to 94kg by my hospital  appointment in July (letter just came through) for project baby!!

After this week I joined Slimming World and I am getting use to their system and trialing some food this week before starting gradually week by week to incorporate SW completely into my life!!

Plus I found a voucher for £35 off!!

I’m also starting to get my courage up enough to brave Youtube again, so keep an eye out for me!!

Healthy Food Shop


Diet Week one….here we go

OMG having visitors over resulted in a 1kg gain…. 
This is my highest weight since 2011.


Breakfast: this involved a weight watchers lemon yoghurt – WOW This tasted exactly like the icing on those Mr Kipling Lemon sponge cakes!! Delicious!!

Lunch: the shop didn’t have the wholemeal wraps but the nearest thing was best of both wraps so I had four of these, with diced ham (needed using up) then two had diced cucumber (I am not a fan of cucumber!!) and the other two had shredded carrot. Only 3 eaten as was too full.

Dinner involved the chinese style chicken noodle soup, I forgot to take pictures butit was   yummy, however I will NOT be putting spring onion in next time as I really do not like it. The chicken in the soup I fried off before adding to the soup and added the Heinz (fish free) Worcestershire Sauce and it was actually really flavourfull!

However I do have a picture of me making the soup!

I was also a tad naughty and ate my last wrap from lunch! No point in wasting it is there !?!


I was off work today, I am still suffering from being ill so I had a slight lie in, then had to run to the post office to collect a parcel before it closed and I completely forgot breakfast.

Lunch involves four ginger biscuits!! My sugars were low from running around and not fueling myself, a mistake I won’t make again!!

Dinner was my roasted veg soup, I went for the first batch I made whilst the wife took the second  batch. Mine was lovely, the wifes’ was way to Parsnip flavoured, meaning I need to cook more veg to add to it as we have another two portions of it!! I had two kingsmill wholemeal thins with a bit of butter (these are also clogging up the freezer) Dessert was a strawberry weight watchers yoghurt, this was also really nice and low calorie compared to other yoghurts!! Will definitely carry on buying these!!


Yoghurt thrown in bag for breakfast, didn’t get a chance to eat it!! Work waits for nobody, my job doesn’t involve an office or sitting down in order to eat.


Lunch was KFC!! Sometimes workmates and work location mean you grab what is available!! My lunch for today will last until tomorrow!!


To be continued!!

Plan B going well …….. so far

So plan B is full steam ahead!!

We have made

My roasted veg soup in four VERY LARGE tubs ready for freezing.

Chicken noodle soup in two large batches for either freezing or for tomorrow evening, we haven’t quite decided as of yet.

Two portions of chicken in a smoky barbeque sauce, this will also be frozen.

More soup is to be made at some point soon.

Plan B….

So I haven’t been very goal orientated lately, even after my last optimistic post.

I have been hit by some sort of cold/infection/chesty type bug so had to cancel yet another hospital appointment with my Gynecology Consultant. 

I have rearranged the appointment and I have just under 4 weeks to get my BMI from its current 37.6 to a first goal of 35 but with an ultimate goal of 30 for the complete go ahead for my fertility treatment. 



Me and the wife have sat down and planned our meals for the week ahead. I will also be undertaking these 30 day challenges through apps and attempting to undertake extra exercise. 

This is my last week to get organised before I start my new job! So lots of change this month set to happen!

The new filofax is purchased and on its’ way!!

For the sake of my sanity and moving on in life, I need children! I need a family. 

I have to get my act together!! And keep it together. With NO TEMPTATION.


Be prepared for recipies and lots of food pictures! Yes it may be annoying and you may not like people that upload images all the time but please remember this is how some of us motivate and feel like they can help others in similar situations.

Let’s find me a hobby….step 1 of new beginnings

I have decided that I won’t get the family I have longed for since my teens without making a big change. My change will begin with finding a hobby, socialise and interact with others because my feeling about myself, my situation and my body are overtaking my mind, I am not in a great financial situation but I need to set some money aside and do something for me. Which benefits the family in the long run.
I have chosen Yoga.

My decision comes from always being interested in yoga. I have been suffering with back pain due to an incident about 6-8 weeks ago and want to stretch and strengthen my core muscles. I need to lose weight and gain confidence and find a way to deal with my stress and recent work related stress and short temper.

Thanks to PCOS I have not had a period since February 23rd 2015. Becoming less stressed, upset and concentrating on something meaningful.

  1. Research Yoga
  2.  Finding a group and contacting them (just literally done)
  3. Arrange to do some yoga
  4. Buy an outfit – don’t think any of mine are suitable. My wardrobe is full of clothes too small, too big, work related or full of holes.
  5. Decide whether I enjoy yoga
  6. Make this a full time change, continue to take part.

A healthy mind makes a healthy body.

I am at work tomorrow for ages!! (Literally at least 12 hours) so will be starting with the library Saturday Morning.

And I will start there. Hopefully there’s a class that fits in with my job starting next week.
