Working to become that strong woman on the outside that I am on the inside!!

I am a professional organizer, a military wife, and a mother to 2 great kids. My 10-yr-old son is a Type 1 Diabetic, which carries a lot of stress and responsibility for me as a parent. My 14-yr-old daughter is extremely bright and is growing up way too fast. My husband is stationed in another state on military duty and has been living apart from the kids and I for quite some time.

I am a professional organizer, a military wife, and a mother to 2 great kids. My 10-yr-old son is a Type 1 Diabetic, which carries a lot of stress and responsibility for me as a parent. My 14-yr-old daughter is extremely bright and is growing up way too fast. My husband is stationed in another state on military duty and has been living apart from the kids and I for quite some time. In September 2013, I finally graduated college with a bachelors degree in business (specialization in project management) and after 4.5 years of hard work (4.0 GPA), long hours, and stresses, I had let my health and body go. In January 2014, I decided to get myself back on track because after seeing the scale read 158 lbs (just 2 lbs shy of my end-of-pregnancy weight with my son!), I just about fell apart and felt so disgusted with myself and my lack of control. Not being able to fit into more and more of my clothes, I continued going up to new sizes and when I got to size 16, I knew it had to stop. In 2004, I had been slim and trim...all the way down to a size 4 with a very tight, strong, athletic body. It is time to work hard again and become that strong woman on the outside that I am on the inside! UPDATE: October 2014 - Made my goal weight! Now onto maintenance. Getting stronger and leaner for life! UPDATE: May 2015 - I have maintained my goal weight within +/- 5 lbs and I am now working on decreasing my body fat %. It is a much better indicator on how well I am progressing on gaining muscle and losing fat than measuring my weight.

You look great and are doing so well with your health. My son has been a type one diabetic since he was 2 years old. he is now 39. because of the long term effects he is going through some health difficulties but in time will no longer be diabetic. he is on a transplant list for kidneys and pancreas which we hope will not be too long a wait.

There are so many breakthroughs in diabetic management and care now than then was back in 1979 when my son became diabetic. I wish you all the best with your son 's health and your own.
