Time to get healthy- again. My boys need me.

Well, not sure where to begin. I am a busy stay at home mother with four crazy boys. Noah (6), Ezra(5), Bobby (3) and Moses (1). They keep me on my toes.
My husband and I met when I was just 18, married at 19. We have been together 10 years this summer. We are stationed in North Dakota and my husband is in the Air Force.
My husband deployed back in September 2013, and since then nothing has been the same. While he was gone, my stress level had reached an all time high. It was hard ...
Well, not sure where to begin. I am a busy stay at home mother with four crazy boys. Noah (6), Ezra(5), Bobby (3) and Moses (1). They keep me on my toes.
My husband and I met when I was just 18, married at 19. We have been together 10 years this summer. We are stationed in North Dakota and my husband is in the Air Force.
My husband deployed back in September 2013, and since then nothing has been the same. While he was gone, my stress level had reached an all time high. It was hard taking care of my sweet boys alone. The weather here in ND gets crazy (-40's) and I was stuck at home with my kids often. While he was gone, I lost none of the baby weight that I had planned on losing. Each pregnancy I am unable to workout due to history of preterm labor and early dilation.
In short, I have gained far more than "healthy amount" each pregnancy.
While my husband was deployed I had emergency surgery removal of my appendix. I honestly feel it was a combination of being overweight/obese and insanely stressed. My husband's deployment ended in February, and he came home!!! I felt life was finally going to be "normal" again.
Things never got "normal" again.
My baby boy began to pass out, turn blue and have seizures. The last one was the day after his birthday and lasted 13 minutes, even after emergency meds.
That situation has changed our lives, what we do as a family, and we are now trying to move to be closer to specialist ( hours away) and an Emergency hospital (closest one is 30 minutes away).
Anyway, now I feel myself back where I was. So stressed, so exhausted and having no time for me. Ever.
But, I need to figure this all out, my body weight it unhealthy and I need to be there for my boys, especially now.
Trying to find my healthy way back. We have already switched to organic food and less processed meals. Now I need to figure out how to help heal the inner me, and try to focus on me, when my mind is always on my kids.

Hi! Just wanted to drop in on you to see how you are doing?! Love the photo of the boys, it's just darling! I cannot wait to get a family photo...well, of the 4 kiddos, together. I think we're going to shoot for this around September, then it can double as our xmas cards!

Anyway, hope all is well! Take care of yourself!!

I know you are tired but you know that things will get better so keep taking it day by day with a smile on your face and doing your bestest. I've been ok. My son is a lil sick so I'm bummed but he's doing better. Just off and on low fever. Maybe due to teething...we'll see I'm keeping an eye on him. Girl you're going to be looking fantastic for your reunion!!!! Have a great week. =)
