Update 9/5/16 Ok figured I'd update things here. I'm started a new job tomorrow. I'm a lead special education teacher in an integrated pre school. Very excited. Closer to home. Bigger salary. Whole new adventure. I also have a new love in my life. His name is Michael. He's 18 yrs my senior but we are very good together. We were on and off since June of 2014 but since April of 2016 were very on!!! He and I make each other very happy. We still take every day 1 at a time but I haven't been this happy in a while. About me: I'm a 43 yr old mother of 2. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood/Special Education. A major that is near and dear to me! I finally finished it in May 2016! It was tough work but I did it!!! My daughter is 11 (soon to be 12) and is starting 6th grade, and she has ADHD. This is her 1st yr of middle school 😯 She is a creative and beautiful girl who I swear will make a wonderful actress one day! My son is 15 (16 in January) and is in 10th grade. He is a child with Asperger's syndrome (high functioning Autism) and bipolar. He is back in district school, He is in high school right now and finally in integrated classes. He is a bright and wonderful boy who can do anything he puts his mind to with the right support. He is the reason I went back to school to become a special education teacher. He's been giving me some challenged lately but we're trying to hold on as best we can. I had gastric bypass surgery in Nov 2001. My highest weight was about 340. It was terrible. I got down to 170-180 at my lowest after surgery. After having my daughter in 2004 I found it a bit easier to put on some pounds. Im finally under 200lbs! Granted it just 199 but still counts. Working on T25 right now and doing the Portion Fix eating plan! Eating is what trips me up a lot so I could use alot of tips! I can work out like crazy but I struggle with making the right eating choices.
