What does a new married life, difficult medical issues and not having a concrete place to rest my head equal? STRESS.

I'm sure a lot of you have gone through, or are going through, hard times and new challenges. My life took a turn when my fiance was diagnosed with Stage 3 brain cancer last July, then we fast forward to October we got married....and because of medical bills and other finances we had to remain at home with my parents in their downstairs basement apartment. For a few months it was fine because I was (and still am) dizzy in love. But now....

I'm going insane! I thought I could handle this, I thought I was better than this but the newleymarried joy is wearing off. I kept the wedding weight down to 145 for awhile...then slowly I crept back up. It was a measley 5-7 pounds at first and I hovered at 155 which I was generally okay with. But then, I got tired of not having my own place...my job was not working out...my husband was spirling into cancer depression and I was going down with him!

I'm calling out for spark people help. I know I can't do this diet thing on my own and I am desperately seeking a friend and confidant that I can work with and grow with. I now weigh about 165-170 which is a lot for my little frame.

So, if there is anyone out there that wants to fight with me to get control of life and work hard I am definitely wanting to put in the time.

I wish all of you the best of luck in your journey and continued success!

Much love,
Amanda

    I am so sorry to hear about what you are going through. It must be very tough. Spark people is a great site for support and you will find a lot of it here. I'm on this website a lot, so if you need someone to talk to or help motivate you, feel free to message me or add me as a friend! I would love the motivation of another person as well.
Best of luck with everything that is going on in your lie.

    Hi, I just came across your blog. My heart goes out to you! Just reading this short blurb, I can tell that you are stronger than you realize! I'd love to have some accountability as well & it's understandably hard to find consistency in that accountability. I'm right there with you; msg me if you'd like!!! :)

    So sorry to read that you are going through so much! I'm tempted to be a spark diet friend with you, but am over-swamped right now, so just don't have the time to squeeze anything else in. I wish you all the best on your journey, though.
