As you would of read in my introduction we are completely ready to start a family. However I have to get fit for fertility first. Monday’s will be the weekly Weigh in days; I have to have a BMI of 30 or under according to my meeting with the doctor before I can get referred for IVF. I was a little annoyed at first, not at the doctor but at myself go getting this bad. But hey I’m overcoming it now.
A little background information?
I started my ‘healthy lifestyle change’ back in Novemeber’16, eating as healthy as I could and going to the gym. Between 1st November 16 to 12th June 17 I’ve lost a total of 26lbs I started at 18stone 8pounds (260lbs) and on Monday the 12th June 17 I weighed 16stone 10pounds (234lbs). From Monday the 12th June 17 I’ve now decided to do a low carb diet which involved cutting out all carbs.
7lbs giving me a final weigh of on the scales 16stone 3lbs (227lbs).
That’s one whole week cutting carbs and increasing my water intake. I will be updating with this every Monday. I normally get weighed in with my consultant however she is only holiday so this monday coming up will be my own weigh in.
Welcome, Aloha. The Nias-Taylor’s do life; the title of our blog is quite self explanatory. This is our life and I’ve decided to share it with the big inter-web.
So I guess you’d like to know who ‘we’ are and a little bit about us.
I’m Georgie Taylor, I’m 27 and the main writer of this blog, I love chai tea latte and sitting with a good book. I’m an avid gamer and have a new found fondness for fitness, health and overall wellbeing.
Then there is Bex Nias, she’s twenty six, also an avid gamer, loves graphic design and anything todo with computer edits and a complete cat enthusiast; haha she’d kill me if she saw this.
But that brings me onto our final members; Nova & Lilo our fur babies. Nova is the most calmest and sweet cat who’ll say hello to anyone. Whereas Lilo scarpers and any noise or person that enters her space; extremely shy.
So add us all together and we become ‘The Nias-Taylor’s’ and what we want to do is add to our family; we want to have a baby, we want to share this with anyone who is willing to read. We have to go down the IVF route so hopefully in the process of keep memories of the good, bad and ugly to also help people that might be in the same situation as us.
