Don't rain on my parade!

WOW! I can't believe how long it has been since I've used this site. I kind of miss it now that I'm back and using it again.

What else you've missed since I last logged on:

-I'm way past all the crap I was dealing with when I first joined spark people. No more Debbie Downer! WOO. I love myself and love life a lot more. My relationship with God has also improved quite a bit.
-I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. It hit me really hard. After I got past the years when I thought I wanted to have 12 kids (2 of my own, and adopt the rest) and I decided I didn't want children, and that my 3 older siblings were procreating enough that I could live a little vicariously through them. My doctor thinks even if I do lose weight (which she added, will be even harder with having this condition), it may not help my results having a child someday. She said I have a lot more cysts on my ovaries than she has seen on most women. It makes me feel ... sad. I love kids. Back when I decided I didn't think I wanted any children, I just started to think what a horrible mother I would be, and I used to think that the world is too corrupt to bring children into the world. Once I got the news from my doctor I thought completely different. I don't think you should always focus on the bad in the world. I mean, amazingly wonderful things are happening around the world, and I know it would be a better place if everyone focused on the good instead of the bad, and they would realize that there are WAY more good things than the bad.
-I've moved out of Manhattan and now live in Olathe. THANK YOU,LORD!!! I love it here so much. I'm attending JCCC for Graphic Design and LOVE it. I love love love my professors. Have I used 'love' too much? Nah.
-I dyed my hair back to blonde. I think I def look better. Sigh, the things you do to your hair after you get out of a relationship ...
-I've lived here for about 3 weeks now. And, what's that? 2.5 pounds lost? Yes, I think so. More to shed as the days go by!
-I want to make a shout out to my sister-in-law, Kim for being a great inspiration and helping me achieve this. Love you, sistah!

Okay, so PLEASE comment or send me a message or whatever. I would LOVE to meet new people!

    Thanks MRE! I felt a little weird just putting it out there for anyone to read, but that's nothing to be ashamed of.

    I hope your journey has been worth it and I can't wait to read more of your blog!

    Welcome back! Seems like you've had a lot going on while you've been away, but you see to be strong and resourceful, and handling things quite well....perhaps it's that Midwest attitude/spirit showing through.....

    Sorry about your PCOS situation..I can't say I relate but I have no doubt that as a young person it must have its impact on you, whether physical, emotional or both......n

    Now just sit back (perhaps not Sit, but get moving instead!) and enjoy the Spark "ride" - you won't regret it for a moment!
