One day @ a time

I turned 30 in September 2005 and have struggled with my weight since I was 20. In Dec 2003 I found out I was pregnant. I had not been to a Dr. in awhile, just avoided them as much as possible. I knew I was overweight but didnt know how overweight I was. I went to the Dr. for a check up and I got on the scale and was 280 pounds ....WHAT 280!!! OMG I couldnt believe it, I was IMBARESSED. The Dr. told me I was MORBIDLY OBESE and if I had a healthy pregnancy it would be a miracle. She also told me ...

The Dr. told me I was MORBIDLY OBESE and if I had a healthy pregnancy it would be a miracle. She also told me I would not be able to hear my baby's heartbeat untill about my 6th month because of my weight. She told me I did not need to gain any weight "I was big enough for my baby to grow into my body". I got in my car and cried. Nobody had ever told me the thigs she had and I was crushed. In my fifth month I went into labor and on April 3, 2004 I had a premature little boy, he was stillborn. I blamed myself. I said to myself IM NOT HEALTHY how can I have a HEALTHY BABY? I went into a deep depression. One day I got out of bed and said to myself only I can change this. I started walking 1 hour everyday. I noticed I was losing weight by the way my clothes were fitting. I wanted more, I started Tae Bo in my garage 5 days a week. I wanted more, I started strength training. I lost 70 pounds ...WOW 70. I felt good & I slept good!! I went from a size 26/28 to a size 16/18 and it feels good. I have since gained back some extra pounds and today my weight is 228 pounds.

1/24/08 UPDATE: IM BACK!
Hellp SP Im back. Sorry had to take some time off to deal with the trails and tribulations of life. IM A DIVORCED WOMAN NOW! It was my choice and I couldnt be happier with the descision I made for me and my children. Got on the scale this morning and it read 228 pounds. I imediatly thought something is wrong. So I got on it again ..nope it was right ..228. So now my goal is 175 by Dec, 08. I CAN DO IT!! So here I am back at it. WISH ME LUCK!

Hey there, I just wanted to stop by and invited you to join my brand new SparkTeam. It is called No Topic Off Limits and I plan for it to be a very active and diverse group to not only talk about weight loss but ANYTHING else under the sun. It would be great to have you there! Just copy and paste the link if you are interested. If not at least check it out before you turn me down ;)
