It’s so great to have you visit my little blog.
I’m Pennie – a firsttime mother, blogger, housewife, kitchenwitch, lover of nature, good food & icecold beer!
And this is my lovely family…
My husband and I have been married for 13 years and together for almost 15! Where did the time go?!? We had tried for 10+ years to get pregnant, and trust me, we tried EVERYTHING?! Anything that was ever posted on the internet or written in a book – we tried it. We tried insemination, IVF and lastly we applied to be adoptive parents.
The IVF and inseminations were really tough on my body and the constant let downs of not being pregnant made me depressive and I gained almost 40 kg(!), which of course didn’t help on my state of mind or body. I am an emotional eater, so of course I sought comfort in food when I was sad.
I was depressed, overweight and unhappy and I remember thinking:
“Having a baby would be great – but I have to be happy without a baby as well…”
….and then things started to change for me.
I did alot of reading about lowcarb and the LCHF-lifestyle and haven’t looked back since. My goal was to have a body in balance and to be happy again with who I am and how I look.
I can honestly say, that I have never felt better after 4 years of eating a lowcarb diet, and as an added bonus, I gave birth to a healthy, happy little girl in march.
I have no doubt that i have the lowcarb-diet to thank for our beautiful daughter and if I can help just one woman out there, who is as unhappy as I was – my mission is complete!
