    Default Wow a section with my name....feeling famous!

    Firstly, thanks so much BH and Healthy Mummy for choosing me!

    A bit of background - I have constantly battled with my weight. I think the real issues started when I met my now DH when I was 15. Having a boyfriend with a car meant no more walking to school, and lots of late night krispy kream and maccas runs! By the time I was 18 I had gained 30kgs.

    Before our wedding I went on duromine to lose the weight, going from 94kgs down to 64kgs in about 6 months. Once my doctor stopped prescribing it to me I got friends to get it, bought it from others....I was addicted. It took DH leaving me for me to get off it, and the weight gain started again. When I fell pregnant with my DD I was about 70kgs, ballooned to 90kg while pregnant. When she was 1 I went on a seriously strict diet and got back down to 68kgs, but I was starving myself, living on around 800 calories a day while breastfeeding....not healthy at all.

    And once again, when I stopped that diet I gained it all back SO this healthy mummy challenge is not going to be one of those crash diets. It is going to teach me how eating healthy can still be delicious and fun. Looking through the recipes I am very impressed already!

    I'll check back in tomorrow with my menu for the day!

    Ok so I finally found how to find this section on my phone! This will make it much easier to update regularly.

    So I've had a pretty crap week to be honest. Got some bad news which definitely proved to me how much of an emotional eater I am, as my first reaction was to reach for the chocolate

    In good news though, I received my healthy mummy vanilla smoothie mix and it's really good! I love the convenience of smoothies and they are very pleasing for my sweet tooth!

    This is the first smoothie I made - vanilla smoothie mix, banana, handful of baby spinach leaves, skim milk and lots of ice. I had it for breakfast yesterday at 8am and than had a lot to do, at midday I realised I hadn't even got hungry for my morning tea (unheard of lol) so it's very filling, and a long lasting 'fullness' too.

    Finally back with another update, writing this as I enjoy my healthy mummy vanilla banana spinach smoothie.....so good in this warmer weather!

    So the reason it's been awhile since my last update is I got some exciting news, I'm pregnant! DH and I have been trying for 2.5 years and I was lucky enough to get my BFP first cycle after lap. We are over the moon!

    Of course this now means my diet is even more important, just not in a lose weight way, in a 'get some nutrients' sort of way! Thankfully Bubhub and The Healthy Mummy have assured me the smoothies are still find to stick with, which is awesome coz they are making the best afternoon snack and breakfasts!

    Even better is having access to all the recipes, I'm a very plain cooker and it's even awesome to get new ideas for ways to get in some more vegies. I weighed myself this morning and I have lost 2kgs since last Monday, which I'm so happy with. I'm starting this pregnancy much higher than my last, and have been told I'm fine to lose a few kgs in the first trimester by eating healthily.

    That's awesome! Congratulations

    I'm just going to hijack for half a second to post a statement from the Healthy Mummy so anyone reading along knows what the go is with pregnancy and also breastfeeding while doing this challenge.

    The smoothies do not have any caffeine, chemicals or artificial sweeteners in them and are safe as a one a day snack in pregnancy or nutrition boost. However, we do not recommend following any weight loss plan in pregnancy unless under your Doctor's supervision. Please note that one smoothie contains 180mcg RE vitamin A. The RDI of Vitamin A for pregnancy and breastfeeding is 700-800mcg daily, while the upper level of intake for pregnant and breastfeeding women is 2800-3000mcg.

    The meal plans are healthy, balanced meals and also great for pregnant mums to use - but pregnant mums should increase portion size accordingly for an increased calorie intake in pregnancy and avoid too much fish and certain cheeses throughout pregnancy.

    Carry on!

    So its been a bit of a crazy week.....

    From finding out I was finally pregnant to finding out my levels aren't that great and being told it could be an ectopic or a miscarriage....so from super extremely happy to really down....

    Have still managed to stick to the program pretty well. Went to a wedding on the weekend, and although I did enjoy the yummy meal and dessert, I didn't have anything to drink and its amazing the difference that makes! The next day I wasn't all bloated and craving greasy foods which was great.

    In the last 5 days I have lost another 400 grams which is good enough for me. I have been experimenting with the smoothies, today I am having the vanilla smoothie mix blended with ice, banana, dates and skim milk. I have been feeling really exhausted in the afternoons and its weird that something without caffeine energizes me so much, makes me last till 8pm when I can crash!

    So since 1st September I have lost 2.4kgs. Lets hope I can keep it up!
