Just a quick update…. in case I don’t make it through the night! 🙂

I’m officially “full term” at 37 weeks tomorrow – although I think I am already over 38 weeks based on my dates. I am delighted to say that this pregnancy has (so far) been AMAZING compared to last time.  I am pretty sure that is in large part due to my improved health and fitness levels, normal pre-pregnancy BMI and ongoing use of Herbalife nutrition products everyday which have prevented any cravings or excessive weight gain. Despite having a large bump now, I am still feeling really well and have energy – I’ve been out walking and playing with my son everyday that the weather has been fine this week!!!! (At this point in my last pregnancy I’d been in and out of hospital, was very unwell and was about to have an attempted induction.)

Apart from a slight blip following on from a very unexpected family bereavement in February, my blood pressure has been great and my liver function is still totally normal – no sign of either pre-eclampsia or Obstetric Cholestastis returning…. so only a short time to go now and I am really delighted!

I’m feeling like I don’t have too much longer to go (maybe just wishful thinking??) so if the posts dry up over the next few days – you know why!!!!!

There’s an interesting article in the Times today by a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist who talks about the need to think like a thin person for your new healthy diet to be successful.

If you’re following our Herbalife Weight Management programme, or will be starting it on Monday, you’ll already have great nutritional support to help you achieve your goals, and a clear eating plan incorporating adequate snacks and protein levels to keep your body functioning at its optimum (and ideally including regular exercise) but having the right mind-set will certainly help you get and stay on track! Here’s an extract…

Do you ever find yourself thinking, “I know I shouldn’t eat this, but I don’t care?” Or maybe, “I’ve had such a bad day, I deserve to eat this”. Or, “I’ve eaten something I shouldn’t. I may as well blow my diet for the rest of the day”. Having worked as a cognitive therapist with dieters for the past 20 years, I know that these are some of the most common “sabotaging thoughts” that get in the way of successful weight loss. For many people the reason diets don’t succeed is that they don’t know how to diet, or to lose weight permanently. The good news is that by applying the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to any healthy, well-balanced diet of your choosing, you can learn how to continually follow a diet, avoid cheating, resist tempting food and cope with hunger, cravings, stress and negative emotions. You’ll do all this by changing the way you think.

I’m 18 weeks pregnant today and feeling great so I thought it time to share my pregnancy story to date…

It took us a matter of years to conceive my son so despite using Herbalife nutrition for ages and being a healthy weight AND much fitter (exercising 3 or 4 times a week), we were astounded to find that I was pregnant after literally the first attempt this time. (more…)
