My husband and me
Me in my wedding dress
Hello! I am a 26-year-old woman who has been obese since preschool. I've worked my whole life to accept myself how I am. Now that I am comfortable with how I look and feel, more weight problems have come up- my husband and I have not been able to conceive for over three years. So it's time to work on my weight for health and family reasons. I'm looking to meet some friends who are also on a journey to health and happiness so that we can all encourage each other, console during the more difficult steps, and celebrate our successes. If you are looking for a friend to help you through, just send me a hello :)
*Cardio 4x a week
*Weight training 3x a week
*Weight loss of 50 lbs by 1/31/12 (one year from when I rejoined my gym
*Eating homemade (and healthy) meals 5 days a week
I am working out at the gym after work and cooking more at home.
I live in Wisconsin with my husband and our two dogs (Ellie and Odie), two frogs, and turtle. I have a brother who lives in Ohio and sister who lives in Arizona, but I haven't been to visit either one (would love to someday). I was born and raised in Chicago and still feel like that is my second home. I have a bachelor's degree in Therapeutic Recreation and am back in school full-time (while still working full-time) to earn my bachelor's in Special Education.
I love reading, writing, spending time with my dogs, walking, hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, travelling, shopping, cooking, playing board games, listening to music, and watching television and movies.

I saw you added me as a friend. :) I've known for years that I wasn't able to get pregnant without help so it wasn't a surprise. I have PCOS, too, so that doesn't improve my situation. We've been going through treatments for about 13 mth. If it doesn't happen this month, we're taking a 2 mth. break due to the holidays and trips we have planned. Obviously I'd prefer to get pregnant this cycle but if I don't, it will give me a chance to work on my weight loss until we start up again in February. If you ever need to talk, I'm here. I can definitely relate. Nice to meet you. Oh, and my name is Sara. :)

I can definitely sympathize on trying to conceive. I've been trying for 5 years with no luck. So I'm here if you need an ear to vent

I just wanted to say Hi! I'm pretty new here, but my husband and I have been trying to have a baby since we got married, and I understand how tough it can be.
I hope we can be friends! Good luck with your weight loss!
