it's a ...................


I had a beautiful baby boy, under pretty stressful circumstances in late January. He was a week late, which didn't surprise anyone considering I am always so late for things! After everyone, and I mean everyone, thinking that I was having a girl for the whole pregnancy (including me), I had a little boy and called him S#am#s. We had quite a few names picked out, but I have named him after my brother who has the Scottish equivalent of the same name. He is simply perfect and has been absolutely no trouble for his baby stage! He is 4 months tomorrow, and therefore, I feel that it is time for me to get back into my weight loss mission. So, i was about 85kgs prepregnancy, or bouncing around there somewhere and 79kg was my lowest weight during my weight loss mission. I put on about 40kgs in pregnancy but a lot of that was fluid. I blew up like a walrus! The day after birth I had already lost 15kgs and he only weighed close to 4! But I have since just stayed at that weight. So, I am on the path to losing again because, to be honest, it has been getting me quite down. I wonder how much weight I'd have put on if I didn't workout and work until I was 38 weeks!!! For now, I am using the I quit sugar program, mostly because I really enjoy the meals and recipes and that once you've made a dinner, you have the lunch the next day too. So, I'll finish with a picture, which is taken after a long day of labour and an emergency Caesar, so I know I don't look the best best, but they placed him on e and he wrapped his hands around my hair, and I was in love!


  1. Congratulations, he is gorgeous :-)

  2. Awwww honey I'm so relieved to see all is well with you and baby.... I was worried! I love his name, I love how cute he looks... you look knackered! But, hell ... delivering a baby is hard work! Well done Mummy. Don't push yourself with the weight loss, it will happen soon enough running around after your darling wee man. CONGRATULATIONS... and enjoy the precious time with your baby.
