Ok chums. A quick note just to warn you that I am getting a little bit personal in this post. Apologies in advance. But my life has changed a bit and I thought I’d share. Or over share.
So on Friday the 7th of March, after suffering with quite a bit of pain for the last couple of months I was diagnosed with PCOS. Polycystic ovary syndrome. It’s not life threatening, and after a bit of research I found out it’s quite common.But a few factors in my life have changed.
Firstly I have been given a 3-5 year period to have kids.. which is slightly daunting, it’s been brought forward a few years but I have comes to terms with it. As has Richard. Just mean’s I may need a little extra help when we decide we want to start trying.I have a few friends who know people who have it who have had kids without any trouble. So I am not overly worried. Guess we will see what happens.
Secondly due to factors related to PCOS (weight gain) and the fact that I have always been a bit of a porker anyway, My liver isn’t too good. It’s a little fatty, which to be fair gave me more warning bells then PCOS to start with. So my healthy life style resolution has been kicked up a big notch with a diet of fresh, filling and healthy food. With no steak or alcohol, or cupcakes I am on my way to reversing it. Shouldn’t take too long as I was advised it’s no where near critical stages. Thank fully. Anyway I have actually managed to loose 5 pounds which I am pretty chuffed at as I was told it could be difficult so I am happy. Missing steak and cake. But happy.
If you have PCOS or know someone who has leave us a comment. Would love to know your story, as I am still trying to understand the whole thing myself. Also if anyone knows any healthy cake recipe. PLEASE leave a comment with details.
I leave you with a picture of the most delicious cupcakes I have ever had in Vancouver. Thankfully I don’t live there..otherwise I’d be like the shape of a cupcake.
Enjoy your weekend all! happy non-rant posts next week I promise.
