Low Iron – joyous!

Low Iron really is a killjoy, I know it is a natural side-effect of pregnancy for a lot of women and to be fair combined with the Ulcerative Colitis (even if I haven't been flaring it still causes problems) it's probably not that surprising that at my latest pregnancy check-up my Iron levels were low.… Continue reading Low Iron – joyous!

I am sorry for the absences and the lack of updating I just missed quite a few sessions this month due to work and life so just haven't had anything to post about, and I haven't been in the right frame of mind really.

Ok, so at present I am currently out of target range, I was last week and I was this week however I have stayed the same over both weeks so that it is a win.

Week 1 @Target – +5lbs

So I am going with this week as a new beginning, and starting it as being Week 1 of my Slimming World journey as a target member. I am not surprised I have put on 5lbs, which is annoying but with being ill I think I'm absorbing food a bit and with the UC (Ulcerative Colitis) I… Continue reading Week 1 @Target – +5lbs
