I WILL do this.

Hi! I'm Kirsten, a 35 year old accountant living in Chicago.

I've had a whirlwind few years. I got married in September of 2011, and 10 months later, my daughter was born. She's the most amazing thing in my life and I love her to pieces.

Unfortunately, I had a difficult pregnancy that required bed rest, and as a result, I gained about 70 lbs. You can imagine my shock when I gave birth to a baby that was only 6 lbs, 6 oz! To add insult to injury, I had a c-section ...
Hi! I'm Kirsten, a 35 year old accountant living in Chicago.

I've had a whirlwind few years. I got married in September of 2011, and 10 months later, my daughter was born. She's the most amazing thing in my life and I love her to pieces.

Unfortunately, I had a difficult pregnancy that required bed rest, and as a result, I gained about 70 lbs. You can imagine my shock when I gave birth to a baby that was only 6 lbs, 6 oz! To add insult to injury, I had a c-section too that required extra post partum rest and recovery, and I have this lovely c-section fat flap that just won't seem to disappear.

Nevertheless, I'm determined to be the best I can be. I've really been struggling to lose the baby weight, despite the fact it really should be off by now. It can be both defeating and inspiring at the same time. Lately, I'll say it's been defeating, but I have to lose the weight. I'm considering a second baby someday and I want to have a starting weight much lower than what my weight is now. It's just healthier for me and for a pregnancy. Plus, I want to be the thinner, more confident woman I was when I met my husband many moons ago!

Feel free to add me as your friend...I am always here for support and encouragement!

Huck lookes so much like my Tikki, so many, many years past. What a sweet kitty Huck was! I'm thankful you gave him a good home, and that he enjoyed the later years filled with so much love.
Thinking of you, and understanding your grief.

I was just thinking about you and Huck and hope and pray you are doing a little better. It takes time, and you deserve this time of mourning your little fur baby. They are so special to us cat lovers. Be well!

Hello!

I'm sorry that I've been away from Spark for so long. I'm working on changing that.

I hope to see you, soon.
