I'm feeling really positive and excited. We've discovered that I have polycystic ovaries which explains several problems I've had. It feels like a real breakthrough - a Eureka moment.

For the diet, I have to ration my carbohydrate intake and eat more protein. That's difficult as I'm a bit of a carbo queen. This morning, instead of cereal, I had an omelette with some vegetables. It feels strange and is a challenge in the kitchen, but if I can get to grips with my weight then I'll be delighted.

I've done a couple of half-hour power walks this week and some strength and core work. I'm aching a bit but in a good way. I'm also going to try skipping. I'm enjoying it - it's just a question of getting a routine to fit in with work and my son.
