Sheikh, rattle and roll

A fitting title for my first blog post since our return from the middle east (geddit?). I haven't felt like blogging much of late, and I'm beginning to think of winding down the IF blogging for good. I just find that since I stopped focusing on trying to get pregnant, and started focusing on just getting myself fit and healthy, that I am a far happier person. When I think about IF blogging I just feel so down again. So hence I haven't been blogging much of late.

So what have I been doing? Well I have been losing weight. Since I started in early January, I have lost approximately 18 pounds. I have dropped one dress size, and am on the way to dropping another. This is the lowest my weight has been in over three years. So I am very happy with that. I'm hoping to lose another eight pounds or so, and then I would be very happy with myself.

And then there was the big trip to Dubai. Nine days of soaking up the sun, swanning around a city (what a treat for a bog dweller such as myself!), going to swanky restaurants, eating lovely food and drinking lovely wine, getting pampered to within an inch of my life by a team of Filipino beauticians whilst I quaffed champagne, cruising in an Arab dhou off the coast of Oman, going dune bashing in a 4x4, and generally living it up. Bliss!

Not much more to say for the moment, but here's a pic of us all dolled up and out on the town.

It is good to hear from you. But I get what you mean about blogging. I too seem to have lost my impetus mo late and it is starting to become a bit of a chore, but at the same time I do want to have a record of my IVF so will keep going for a while.

glad you had fun in Dubai you look very happy and chilled out in the pic.

And I too get what you mean about the ole infertility blogging - well you know my answer to that! Start another blog..or two..or three..like me :-) Must meet for a coffee soon xxx

I missed you so much! but I understand that blogging can also come to an end. If it doesn't make you feel better than there is no point at all. Do stay in touch though, I'd love to know how you are. Love, Fran

I am also glad to hear you check in. I get what you're saying though. If the blogging isn't making your life better, it may not be the right thing to do for now. Right on with the weight loss. Congrats on that.

I'll always be here for you if you start back up again or if you every need anything...

Great picture. I loved Dubai, its kind of like a clean western city with a middle east flair. Glad you enjoyed yourself and congrats on your weight loss.
