"Where do I start! When I first met Mike I was unhealthy, unhappy and very overweight. There are two parts to my journey with Mike. The first part is that I had extremely high blood pressure and was on high medication for this. After a year of eating a healthy diet and following Mike's fitness plan I have come off all medications and my blood pressure is now fine. The second part of my journey has been a life changing one in every way. I was diagnosed with fertility problems at a very young age and was told I would probably not conceive naturally. Me and my partner didn't want to go down the IVF route straight away. After been together for 7 years, we made the decision that we would start trying for a baby and see what happens. I am a believer in if it was meant to happen it would. After 7 years of trying, we started to believe it was probably not going to happen for us and we'd come to terms with that we would probably never become parents, unless we went down the IVF route, which scared the hell out of me!!! Me and Jamie decided to live life and enjoy every minute. In September 2012 I suffered a few medical issues and was referred for some scans. In October 2012 I had to go for a follow up appointment and also meet with my doctor to discuss the possibility of IVF. Just before meeting him, I had to go for a scan, which would be a life changing one, as I was told that I was 4 weeks pregnant!!!! :) hoooooray. Shock is an understatement!! The doctor that I saw after the scan said that it was most definitely the weight loss, the healthy life style and excercise program that me and Jamie (Jamie has lost over 8 stone with Mike) are on with Mike had to have played a massive part in conceiving naturally. On the 7th July 2013 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl called Alicia Bella. My journey has not finished with Mike as I still have a lot more weight to lose but I'm sure Mike didn't mind the little detour I took of having a baby lolll. I'm back on the program and looking forward to the future. Thanks for everything Mike!!!"
