Well lets see....I have been married to the same wonderful man for 13 years, and I am a 34 year old mother to a miracle baby who is 4, and a 17 year old step daughter whom my husband and I have full custody of. I am also a mother to 5 (yes 5!!) angel babies in heaven. After YEARS of miscarriages and heartache, I found out when I got pregnant with my miracle baby Maddisyn Grace that I have SEVERAL blood clotting disorders(Duffy, Antiphospholipid, Anticardiolipin and the Lupus Anticoagulant) on top of a malfunctioning thyroid. My pregnancy with her was awful!! I had to do Lovenox injections (blood thinners) twice a day, bed rest from week 12 due to bleeding and a whole lot of steroids and other meds. My princess was born at 28 week, 1 day weighing a great big 1 lb 12 oz. She spent 2 months in the NICU at RCRMC and was sent home at 3 lbs. By the grace of God, she is HEALTHY! She is actually advanced for her age, physically and mentally. I am sooooo lucky. With all that said, that is pretty much what led me to be in the physical shape that I am in now. Dont get me wrong...I have NEVER been a thin girl. I was on Atkins before I got pregnent with her, and I lost 70 lbs in 7 months, but I gained it all back plus 60 lbs extra since then, and I eventually tipped the scales at 346 lbs. I am the biggest that I have ever been. I want to get in shape for my own good, but also for my family that I love sooooo very much. I want to be healthy for them so that we can do more fun things, and set an example for my girls. Its very important to me.

    Wow, your story really touches home here I'm a gravita 19 para 3 so I know what it's like to suffer through a bunch of pregnancies and always feel like this is the one! Fortunately for me the 3 girls that I have had I was able to maintain my lifestyle throughout the pregnancies and still be active. I can only imagine how hard it was for you to go through such an awful experience with your pregnancy but thankfully you have your beautiful daughter from it. Both your girls are beautiful and you are obviously a proud mom! I wish you the best of luck with your weight loss efforts. You deserve it!

    I hope your headache went away. I find that exercise can most definitely help me lose a headache, depends on what's causing the headache sometimes, but...totally worth it to try!
