Amber's World

I am a 40 year old military spouse and mother to four amazing kids, ages 17, 15, 13, and 6. We live in the San Diego area. I am a stay at home mom who is "volunteer-centric" as my husband likes to say. I am a Navy Ombudsman, a photographer who specializes in special needs families, a parent contributor to the military's EFMP Cross Functional Team, and a full time care giver to my youngest daughter who is severly disabled.

I am a 40 year old military spouse and mother to four amazing kids, ages 17, 15, 13, and 6. We live in the San Diego area.

I am a Navy Ombudsman, a photographer who specializes in special needs families, a parent contributor to the military's EFMP Cross Functional Team, and a full time care giver to my youngest daughter who is severly disabled.

My weightloss journey has been a long and winding road! I have been obese as long as I can remember. I topped out at 320lbs in my late 20's. In 2002 I underwent open RNY gastric bypass suergery and lost over 100lbs. Little by little I began putting weight back on. Before I knew it I was back up to 250 lbs!! That's when I got serious. I've made some drastic changes to diet (Cut out red meat, hydrogenated oil, saturated fat, and high fructose corn syrup) and started working out regularly.

I am now down to about 215 pounds and so happy to have found Sparkpeople. I have high hopes that this tool will help me meet others on a similar journey and STAY MOTIVATED!!
