This is my first time on here and I just joined because I need some support from other women who have gone through this. I moved in with my boyfriend about 9 months ago and September 26th we found out that I was pregnant. On October 24 we lost the baby. I had to have an emergency DNC and I was treated horrible by the hospital and my doctor...I was so excited to be a mother and felt like I had everything taken away from me so fast. I have been very depressed and have gained weight since we lost the baby...I want to lose the weight so that we can try again. My boyfriend and both of our families have been extremely supportive but they don't know how I feel. Any advice?

Welcome to SparkPeople! You'll find lots of support, information, and inspiration here. All the best on achieving your goals!
This is my second time on here. I started to track really well about a year and a half ago, but I ended up not having the time or the internet available to keep it up. This time, I'll be here for the long haul.
I guess I'll start out by explaining my situation.
I was a really healthy and active teenager, I'm 5'5 and was never more then 145 pounds at my heaviest in high school. When I graduated I moved in with my boyfriend, now husband. Everything was good for a while and then we got pregnant. I lost the baby and didn't handle it very well. That was my third miscarriage and I just gave up on everything after it and went into a horrible depression. I started gaining weight and just didn't care. Eventually the toll of the weightloss started to show. Around age 20 I stopped getting periods and started getting sick really easily. I knew there was a problem, so that's how I ended up here. It scared me.
We got married last year and now we want to start our family. But I still have too much weight on me [280 pounds] to be in good enough health to have a baby. I atill don't get periods, and I'm just overall not healthy. I keep losing weight, I lost 40 pounds and my body started to regulate itself and we started trying, but I gained it back. When I think about starting our family it really kicks me wanting to get this weight off and be healthy, because it's what I want more then anything. But then, I think about the possibility of me losing all this weight, becoming super healthy again....and losing another baby. That always scares me. I KNOW I keep gaining the weight back that I lose because I get scared and think it's just easier this way. If my body doesn't do what it needs to for me to get pregnant, I can't lose another pregnancy.
I don't want to be scared anymore and I guess what I'm looking for here is encouragement that it IS worth getting healthy. That it's the best thing for me. That it's okay.
Sorry about the rambling and incoherence of this post. I find it hard to write about. But hopefully someone here can give me a hand and I can get this weight off for good and have my healthy body back for my family.
