Long time no post!

I am such a slack blogger... !

Life, it gets in the way sometimes and you get busy... and, as I'm sure I've said before, my lapband isn't a huge part of my life anymore... it's just there.

So I'm going to take my blog in a slightly new direction.

I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). I didn't think I could conceive without help. I was wrong (thankfully... so thankfully..)

The research on diets for PCOS I've done so far suggests that the low carbohydrate and whole food diet is the way to go. PCOS is associated with insulin resistance. I had gestational diabetes during my pregnancy so I naturally am assuming that I have PCOS/obesity related insulin resistance.

So my blog will start to focus on my PCOS, following a low-carb, whole food life style, exercise (of course) and my journey to hopefully falling pregnant with baby number 2 by the end of the year.

I would love to be able to refresh my blog and make it look cool, but I don't know how to do that... any tips would be greatly appreciated.

And a little update on my monkey boy... he is now 10.5 months and has his first birthday next month!! OMG the time has just flown. He is a little cutie patootie.. and I love love love being his mama. My DH is an awesome daddy... he amazes me with the love he has for our son.

A photo of my monkey boy for your viewing pleasure!

Delurking to say great idea to get Insulin Resistance investigated. My experience is that you need an endocrinologist, preferably one who specialises in PCOS. Warren Kidson would be ideal if you are in/near Sydney.

Very cute baby!
