I know life isn't going to always be sunshine and rainbows, but when you do get them... it makes it so much more amazing!

I married my amazing husband and best friend 9-4-10. I run a daycare out of my home and work part time at a local thrift store. I have very little time to myself but I enjoy everything that I do. In my free time I am addicted to facebook, love to watch movies with my husband, Tony, and read. I am a new couponer that is trying to build a stockpile so that I can actually make a profit on my daycare this year. I am obsessively organized and tend to have my whole life reflective of my massive organizational skills. The only thing I dont have under control is my weight. I have been heavy ever since I was approximately 11. I was raped at an early age and tend to be an emotional eater. At one point of my life I was an alcoholic. I am hoping to learn how to positively tend to my emotions with things other than food. I gained quite a bit of weight in the last year. I miscarried a miracle baby in October of 2009. I was told for 6 years I would never have children and suddenly found myself pregnant at the beginning of the relationship with my husband. We were so excited, just to be let down. I have been told by my obgyn that if I loose a substantial amount of weight that the chances of becoming pregnant become more and more likely. I am willing to do what I need to do to become the mother that I so desperately want to be. I am starting this journey for what seems like the 100th time but I now have a purpose. I want to be healthier for me and my husband and for our future children!

I started fertility drugs this month and was told today that I still didn't ovulate. This is most likely due to my weight. I have to do something or I will never have the baby that I want so badly! I 'm not getting any younger and I am only getting worse on my own so I AM BACK!

RECOMMIT: 8/12/12
I have been gone for quite awhile for a good reason. I ovulated on my second round of fertility drugs and got pregnant. My son Benjamin (Benny) Daniel was born 7-30-12. My husband and I fell in love with him immediately. We waited so long for him and we decided we would like to try for another child soon. I gained quite a bit of weight while pregnant and topped out at around 360lbs. I want to get under 300 at least before we start trying for our second child. What motivation! I am so excited to be back and hope for an even bigger success than the other times!

    Thank you for your comments on my blog :) When I head out today to walk my 3/4 mile I will do it with pride instead of sadness that I can't do more -- I appreciate your comments so very much :) Have a fantastic week!

    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! The Salsa chicken is awesome! I also give my husband a lot of credit for trying Zumba with me--it certainly is not easy at first!
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog today....I am exactly like you also...everytime I started my weightloss its usually in the summer when I wasnt in school or it was less hectic as soon as i got busy or out of control there went my weightloss. I cant seem to keep it together when other parts of my life are out of balance...I know this time will be better....we will do it...we can feel great that when everything else may be going crazy our eating plan we are in control of....

    Thanks so much for posting on my blog!! I really appreciate your support.

    I read your story and we seem to have some things in common. I too am starting over in a second marriage, who is the love of my life. My dream job is to have my own daycare business, but right now I am stuck in an "office job" because of our finances and most of all I am extremely organized. It is the only way by brain knows how to think! Even when I try, it is constantly thinking......and in control of everything but my health!

    It is REALLY nice to see the progress you have made in your commitment! I am proud of you! One step at a time... That is how I am going to do this! Thanks again for your posting!
