To date, I have lost 8 pounds! This is exciting!


More later:)




I HAVE LOST 3 POUNDS!!! I know it’s a small number, but its huge to me.

See, I love food. I just do. Especially anything that has chocolate in it.

well after just 3 days of diet and exercise, I have dropped three pounds.

I could jump up and down I’m so happy. I think I’ll go swim some laps instead!

Love, Saira

PCOS: How I am kicking it’s arse right out of my life.


About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and I was told to go see a specialist for help concieving.

Well the other day it hit me: it was all unnecessary.

Here’s why:
PCOS is brought on by drastic weight gain… When I got married I gained quite a bit of weight (around 60 lbs). That’s when my fertility problems started.

So here’s what I’m doing about it.

I have set a weight loss goal, and a time frame.

I have changed my diet to be more healthy. (No soda, sweets, fatty foods, etc.)

Once I am back down around 130 lbs, I will actively start trying again to get pregnant.

Seeing as that’s the one thing I want more than anything in the world, I figured that’s good incentive.

So stay tuned as I track my progress!!

Thanks y’all:)

The title of this post has nothing to do with the post itself, I just happen to love that song.

Anyway, I just finished my first workout in a long time, because I’m trying to get back in shape to help my chances of getting pregnant again.

Here’s the info.

Day 1 Exercise:

1 minute wall sit

40 calf raises

100 jumping jacks

5 push ups (haha I know, pathetic)

10 minutes on the elliptical

160 curls

1 set basic bridges

1 set leg lifts

I have been eating low fat foods with lots of protein and iron.

I can’t wait to make this journey!

Thanks y’all
