What I've been working on

I've been a little busy lately. I've been making decisions about what I want my life to be like. I can't live my life and not have thrown absolutely everything at having a child, and my weight is holding me back from doing that.

So on September 21, I will be having a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, also known as weight loss surgery. It's drastic, but so is 16 unsuccessful IVF attempts, and the thought of not having children. It's also drastic to think my life expectancy is lowered by a decade because of my weight, and that the only direction my weight is going is up.

I've started a separate blog to follow my progress, I'd love for you to pop over. It's called Lose and Hope and I'll be blogging everything to do with surgery, recovery and life losing weight.

The not blogging thing

I'm feeling snarky today. Possibly it's just my period being a bitch. But I'm in a foul mood, which somehow makes this easier. I'm just not in a blogging mood right now. No doubt I'll be back in a week or month or two. I can never stay away for long. And it's not a 'break', I'm just gonna do what I want to do, when I want to do it. Work is hard, I'm back studying at night trying to get my degree, I had another papsmear came back abnormal which of course has skyrocketed my stress levels, and to be honest, I have enough on my plate. Hopefully I'll get back into some blogging rhythm when winter is over and the sun comes back. Hopefully. Always hopefully.
