I'm starting small. I always jump in and get overwhelmed. My husband and I want to make this a true lifestyle change, not just a weight loss method. By making small changes each day/week, we feel we'll be more successful!
We are TTC while facing infertility and received a BFN from our first round of IVF. I'm originally from Traverse City, MI, finished undergrad in Kalamazoo, MI and moved to Chicago in 2008 with my husband, where I attended and graduated from Roosevelt University with my Masters in Education. I teach high school English on-line for K12 Inc. and I love it! I really like to read, write, browse on-line and read some more! I'm looking forward to being a healthier me for my future family. :)

Are you still here? It's been a while since you've updated your status or since I've seen you around... Hopefully you're just lurking and quietly still chasing your own goals but in case you're not, please remember:
People disappear for all sorts of reasons. Life gets in the way, we forget or change our views on what we deem is important, we get buried under stress, frustration, illness. We sometimes give up, throw in the towel, or just promise ourselves that once things get better/easier/calmer, we will hitch up our socks and come back fresh. We've all done it. We've all been there. And if perhaps, you just need a supportive hug, or a helping hand or a word of inspiration, please know that I am offering it to you with no judgment, no guilt. It seems like it's been a while since you've been here and I just wanted to let you know that you are missed.
