Sure, I could lose a few pounds, but do you think I am obese?
If you do, fair enough, but let me tell you, I actually like my body. I like being 14 and a half Stone. I like having big boobs, I like the fact that my husband loves my big boobs.
I have fucking awesome boobs.
So, the fertility doctor, in our last appointment, explained that we are in the category of “unexplained infertility”.
We have to wait 3 years, and I have to have a BMI of 28. Apparently I am at a BMI of 32. So, I need to lose 1 and half Stone.
I’m not very good at losing weight.
And over the past year (the last year before the 3 years are up), I’ve tried EVERYTHING.
Did not work for me. Ended up spending too much time trying to input food onto the app, whilst eating snacks.
Weight lost: 0 pounds.
Did not work. I have a FitBit and all it did was tell me I could eat loads as I was doing so much walking.
Weight lost: 1 pound in 3 months (SCORE)
Went on a week-long boot camp in the summer and bloody hell that was hard, felt sick the whole fucking time. Also spent £1000. However, it worked!
Weight lost: 9 pounds in one week (WOOOOO)
4. Book by Paul McKenna, How to lose weight
This book made sense and worked for me, but only for a while.
Weight lost: 10 pounds in 6 months
5. NHS: Eat less move more
This works if you have willpower. I have NONE
Weight lost: 0 pounds
So, the three years are up in January and my appointment is coming up then. I need to be BMI 28 by then. I am currently BMI 29. Nearly there, but I’ve now stopped at 13 Stone and nothing will shift it!!!
But you know what really bugs me? the fact that I was told that I should not be happy with my body the way it is and I have to change it because I am slightly overweight.
Also, people who don’t deserve children get pregnant and I can’t because I need to lose a few pounds? How is that fair?
I. Hate. My. Life.
