This is my first blog entry after a couple of weeks of starting Sparkpoeple. Along with it being my first week to start tracking what I eat and my fitness etc. I'm really enjoying that I can see the numbers in front of me, even after a day it has really helped to show me and tell me when I need to stop eating. After one day I can already tell the difference with the way I feel when I woke up. My main issue is I LOVE to snack, especially late at night, after work, with a good kung fu movie and some cookies, cake, pb sandwhiches, basically whatever looks like a snack at that time of the night. I work the evening shift and my job can be physically demanding at times but really more so mentally demanding. I work in an assisted living facility and help take care of the elderly. I love my job not to many people can say that in the world, but a lot of times it contains a lot of emotional stress. Plus I get stressed because my husband and I are on the mission to concieve our second child. I have PCOS and this time it isn't so stressful but more frustrating. I got pregnant the with my son on Clomid and Metformin, I was also taking a womens one a day at the time. But also when I got pregnant with him I was working a much more physically demanding job and had lost 20lbs which I think helped in the baby making process. This time Clomid didn't work. I did the 6 months of it and no pregnancy. So I'm on a mission to lose some more weight and I see my Doctor for a pre specialist appt on wednesday. I'm worried that I won't be able to have more children but at least this time around I'm not as freaked out about it since I do have my beautiful son. I just want him to have a friend for life, and someday when both my husband and I are gone I don't want him to be alone with out any siblings to talk to. Hopefully Sparkpeople, my doctors and God will allow me to have a second child.
