    ...is so weird for me. I was wondering if I was getting a bit bloated so I checked my period tracker and discovered that I'm 7DPO. Normally I'd be over analysing every little "symptom" and probably peeing on a stick by now! My best friend has been talking about her little boy who was born the day after my due date a lot recently and I'm definitely still clucky but it doesn't hurt like it used to.

    I know now that I'm definitely doing the right thing by focusing on my health both mental and physical before getting pregnant. My concern is that I have always been looking for happiness in outside events, my relationship, my wedding, a BFP. What would've happened if I'd gotten a BFP in the frame of mind I was in before I started this challenge? A BFP wouldn't have made me a stronger person. I would've been happy in being pregnant but I still would've been sad within myself. Learning to cope with that inner sadness, address it, become stronger and happier as a person is something that will still take time after this challenge has finished but I am absolutely on the right path for me.

    In other news, we had yet another Christmas dinner tonight, only two more to go this week! I'm hoping it doesn't affect my weigh-in tomorrow too much, I had lots of salad but I also had some of the absolutely divine French onion potatoes that my husband's aunt makes.

    I'm ready to go hard this last week and I'm still aiming for my goal of being "overweight" at the end of this challenge! My friend weighed in today and she's lost half a kilo this week which is great considering she hasn't made any changes to her diet, all she's doing is the Zumba with me after work three nights a week!

    You sound like you are in a good head space right now. Your right by focusing on health before you get pregnant, you and your baby will be better off.

    Thanks hun, I definitely am doing the right thing. As much as I'd love to be pregnant now, I think it would just end up causing me to be sad and depressed again once the baby was born. My future baby is going to be lucky because he or she will have a strong, fit, confident and HAPPY mother!

    Your turn around is nothing less than spectacular!
    You should be so proud of what you have and are achieving.

    Thank you so much, I really appreciate the support!

    I have so far to go still but I've come so far from where I started. I was a quivering mess at the beginning of this challenge. I would literally cry for hours at random things that reminded me that I wasn't pregnant and don't even get me started on my fear of mirrors!

    I just noticed your siggie, London! Are you still not saying anything on FB? I've been careful not to put my foot in it!

    Also, for anyone who's playing at home, London's the friend who told me she was pregnant the other week.
