An eventful 8 weeks.

So its been an eventful last 8 weeks to say the least, since I last spoke to you all I’ve had surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy as the methotrexate worked to stop the pregnancy progressing but my body did not reabsorb it the way it should have. They have told me my left fallopian tube is blocked with something called Hydrosalpinx. This means along with my right fallopian tube being damaged that we are going to struggle to fall naturally if we try for another baby and if we do fall the chances of another ectopic are extremely high. :( So the last few weeks I have not really been focused on my weightloss… In fact I’d probably go as far as to say I’ve not really been eating right at all! It feels good to get all this out so forgive me if it’s not completely on track to do with weightloss, I am however going to get back on track this Wed. I feel like I’ve got all of the junk food cravings out of my system and I have a freezer full of meat and poultry ready for me to cook up a storm. ;) So starting this week I’m going to dig out some of my old recipes to give them a go, if anyone has any lovely low pp recipes they’d like to share, I’d be happy to try them!
Well that’s it from me today, I’ll be back on Wednesday with my dreaded wi result!

Much love,

Feeling rubbish! 😔

Hey everyone, just a quick one today. After my hospital appointment on Monday that I mentioned in my previous post, the doctors told me I didn’t suffer a miscarriage but in fact have an ectopic pregnancy ! 😔
I didn’t know what to think, and it all went so fast as they wanted to operate but because I have had previous abdominal ops from when I was born I am classed as high risk so they went fine the alternative route of giving me an injection called Methotrexate

You can read about it here if your interested at all.
The long and short of it is that this drug is making me feel quite ill, I’ve been sick and I have no appetite hence why I won’t be on track this week, as it’s just another thing on my mind to worry about. I’m hoping that this goes as smoothly as possible but knowing me it probably won’t!
Anyhow I may come on and have a little rant about how I’m feeling again this week, but things will resume normal order soon as they can, I promise more reviews and recipes when I can!

Have a good ww week peeps, onwards and downwards!
Much love Gems xxx

Happy! 😊

Morning all, I’m feeling good this morning as feel very much back on track this week, feels good to be back in control! I have weighed in and am very pleased with the result, even after going out for Chinese on Sat night.. Here’s the result this week, drum roll please…

Ta daaa!!

Amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it! I’ve got my 5% this week but I lost a pp, boo!! I plan to do just as well this week too!
Happy Monday peeps, enjoy a fab week on track with me.
I plan on staying on track again this week although I have to go back to the hospital today for more tests as my blood tests from the hospital yesterday show the hcg pregnancy hormone has risen so now they are concerned that maybe it’s an ectopic pregnancy not a miscarriage as first suspected! 😔 I’m trying for positive thinking but I just wish it was all over now.
So depending in how that goes today I may be using a few weeklies on a nice hot chocolate with marshmallows later from Starbucks! 😜

Much love

Weigh in tomorrow!

Hello all, I’ve had a great week on track, scales are being kind to me so far even after going out to Chinese for dinner last night!! 😉 I had This for dinner the other day and it was totally … Continue reading

What a difference a year makes!

Well it’s been a long year and 2013 hasn’t been the kindest to me so far, what with being hospitalised the beginning of the year, my grandad being diagnosed with cancer and suffering a miscarriage recently.. I’m about ready for 2014 to come steaming in, bringing with it better tidings I hope! In the last year I have put back on all of the weight I lost a couple of years back and feel utterly rubbish if I’m honest.
After the last couple of weeks, I decided enough was enough and weighed my self on Monday and started ww pp once again.. I’m having a pretty epic week so far if I say so my self! I’m glad to be back and will bring you guys and gals more recipes and reviews pronto, I may not post every day but you will hear from me a few times a week!

With that I bid you goodnight,
Much love
Gems :)

Coming home

So I’m back. It’s been a while I know, I have been messing around for quite a long time now and I really really need to get my head back in the game. I have a wedding to go to on 21 September so I’m going to work as hard as I can to try getting a nice dress for that wedding, Weight watchers has worked for me in the past so I’m going to give it another go and really really knuckle down. Be prepared for loads of random posts about exercise, food, drinks and just pretty much anything to do with Pro points. Tomorrow is my weigh in day I’m hoping that I stayed the same this week, I haven’t had a brilliant week I’ve not been on track very well and I had a rubbish lunch today, I am writing my blog again it makes me accountable for everything I eat also having my new iPhone means that I can track everything in my weight watchers app So literarily soon as I eat something I can track it which is brilliant. I can’t wait to share with you all tomorrow what my menu is going to be, I haven’t worked out completely yet but I’m going to sit down and do that in a little while, so I have a fabulous evening and your hear from me again tomorrow.
