I'm a daughter, sister, mother, and wife. I work, go to school and rule the roost. I eat, sleep, work, study and occassionally watch TV. I have 4 dogs, 3 cats, and a 350 gallon fish tank.

I was always over weight "fat girl" is what my brothers called me, "miss piggy" is what my mom called me. When I was 15 (170lbs) I lost 35lbs on a medifast diet, but as soon as I hit my goal and stopped the medifast, I put the weight back on plus some. When I was 20 (248lbs) I had gastroplasty and lost 90lbs. The weight flew off and I never learned how to maintain and never exercised. When I was 24 (175lbs) I realized that I was gaining my weight back and started an exercised program and eating healthier and lost 25lbs. I stayed within a 10lb range until I was 28 when I decided to get some plastic surgery (I was at 155lbs). I had a breast lift and augmentation, brachioplasty (removing the wings from my arms), tummy tuck and lipsuction on my outer thighs. I was supposed to also have a thigh lift, but did. All in all about 15lbs of skin was removed and for once I felt like I looked human!! Almost a year later, I met my husband. Of course over the next year I had that 8lb gain that happens when you get into a relationship, but I was very happy and OK with it. 21 months into our relationship, when we started our wedding planning, I got pregnant. We were both very excited! We went and had a small ceremony with our parents and decided we would have to big celebration a year later. My pregnancy was fairly easy. I didn't get very big and about 7 months into my pregnancy the doctor noticed that the baby wasn't gaining weight. He put me on a high protein diet and I got monitored weekly, but her weight gain was very slow. So at 37 weeks, I was induced. My weight was 185lbs. On August 26, 2008 Gianna Breanne was born!! The next 4 months were very hard because she was so colicky, but I made it through it and then started putting my wedding together (and started smoking again). On my wedding date in April 2009a, I was down to about 162lbs! Then in July my position at work changed (I wasn't walking around the office all the time any more), I stopped smoking on Gianna's 1 year birthday and in October I went on anti-depessants. I gained some weight, but the realization of how much didn't hit me until I saw the pictures from Easter 2010! I decided to join Weight Watchers on April 23, 2010. I didn't have the time in my schedule, nor the energy or money to get back to the gym and start eating the way I did when I lost weight before. When I joined, I was 186.2lbs, 1.2lbs more then when I gave birth to Gianna. With Weight Watchers I've got the support that I never saw in any of my previous weight loss endeavors. Between the knowlege I'm getting with sparkpeople.com and WW, my drive, self esteem and knowlege are increasing daily!
