For the 2 years after my wedding in 2011, I went on a honeymoon, gained back 20 pounds of the 75+ I lost, got pregnant in 2012 (January) discovered I had type 2 diabetes while I was 2 months pregnant with my first child. Was on a very strict diet and insulin routine for the rest of the pregnancy. I had a very hard labor with my daughter which resulted in her being placed in NICU for a week. I concentrated on being a good mom when we were finally able to go home,... Sun, 22 Jun 2014 12:37:47 EST Body by Vi challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5316767 I went to a new doctor yesterday, because when I was pregnant with my baby girl Isabella, I developed gestational diabetes. After she was born 5 months ago, they were still giving me insulin to help, my numbers were in the low 20's, and I couldnt deal with those numbers. When I was released from the hospital I stopped taking the insulin. 3 months later I decided to see what my HA1C was. I went to express care to be seen since I had to wait to see the health department doctor for 3 months. <B... Tue, 9 Apr 2013 07:38:46 EST Body by Vi challenge day #4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5311896 4/4/13 Today is the new shake day. We decided to just do the shakes once a day. So we both started out with a chocolate banana shake. Nothing too exciting, it tasted good, but a egg would have been nice as well. <BR> <BR> weighed in and I gained back the 2 pounds I lost. All I had was meat....anywho, this is what happens when your starving and you will kill someone for something to eat. I don't like that feeling at all. I hate that starving feeling. I am drinking 10 glasses of water a day,... Thu, 4 Apr 2013 20:42:16 EST Body by Vi challenge day #3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5311887 4/3/13 I can't take this anymore :( I am soooooo very hungry, about to eat a hole in the wall, and my dog is hiding because I keep looking at her like she's tender LOL <BR> <BR> No weight lost today, so I was discouraged. We got some snacks to eat between meals because we are so hungry. I think my hubby and I were under 1,000 calories a day. So last night we couldnt take it anymore, and I grilled up some hamburgers. We had no buns, no condiments, nothing. After I ate it I was full. But we ... Thu, 4 Apr 2013 20:37:46 EST Body by Vi challenge day #2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5309731 4/2/13 I am starving! <BR> <BR> not sure whats going on, I am doing the same thing I did for day 1. I am about to eat the kitchen thats how hungry I am. I went to bed because I knew if I stayed up I would attack that kitchen. (but having a baby makes it hard to sleep even if you tried) <BR> <BR> Having diabetes, I need to make sure I am eating all the time, doing this body by vi challenge only works if you buy the shakes, and snacks. I could hardly afford to do this one, I need to have a b... Wed, 3 Apr 2013 06:50:04 EST Body by Vi challenge day #1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5308520 Yesterday I decided to start a new diet program called the body by vi program. What you do is drink shakes 2 times a day, and then eat a sensible dinner. I started yesterday, and I have to do my measurements once a month, and weigh myself as well. I should have taken before and after pics, but I will take one today and post it for tomorrow. This is supposed to be a 90 day program, but at 50.00 a month for just a bag of mix, I can't afford to do more than a month. I was then given a free bag o... Tue, 2 Apr 2013 08:23:21 EST Long time since I blogged http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5185838 Well yesterday I started my new years resolution which is to get the rest of this weight off of me! <BR> <BR> Yes Isabella Faye Cavaiuolo was born on October 20th 2012, I had a very rough delivery, and was in the hospital for 5 days. Isabella was also in NICU for those 5 days as well. She is doing GREAT now! We just celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas eve and day with her. (as well as new years eve and day) She is such a blessing to me and my husband! Here are a few pictures of he... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 10:38:30 EST First looks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4896063 I really miss sparkpeople, but being pregnant I can't do as much walking and dieting as I did when I was getting ready for my wedding. 80 lbs lost all together was a great big deal for me! Putting back on 20 of those 80 lbs lost was a big deal but not as big as finding out I am pregnant. I found out March 1st of this year that we would be having our first (and only) child this year :) We were both shocked due to the fact we were both told we could never have children. well GOD shocked us all!... Thu, 24 May 2012 11:42:52 EST the news :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4790976 So I went today and found out that I have type 2 diabetes. I have to do the finger prink 3 times a day and I now have to take insulin 2 times a day :( This is for my first trimester because of the baby. Hopefully when I get to my 2nd they will put me on pills. <BR> <BR> Today was ROUGH. VERY ROUGH. There were TEARS, and I was SCARED! I still am, but after I found out that I can do something to make sure my baby is ok I am on board! I have to do this for myself and my baby! I just wish thing... Fri, 16 Mar 2012 16:45:40 EST Some bad news :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4789641 So on Wednesday I had my appointment with my midwife. I had to do a urine test and they found out that I am spilling sugars into my urine. So they were going to do a glucose test on me (making me drink a sugar drink) but they decided to test my sugar first. When they done the test it was 246....I was shocked! The nurse asked me the obvious questions like have you felt tired? Well yes but Im pregnant.....do you drink alot? I drink 8 8 oz glasses of water a day sometimes more than 8. Do you fee... Thu, 15 Mar 2012 20:28:12 EST Excited Excited Excited http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4779486 I haven't been on sparkpeople in over a month, and its because of me. I had so many things happen lately that I just havent been into the computer much. From enjoying my new married life, my great family and friends, so many things have kept me away from sparkpeople. My mother in law went through a surgery (which in the end didnt help her pain at all) but the surgery was a success in other ways because they found another issue at the time. So going to gainesville and being with her in the hos...

With 28 pounds added back to my waist line I needed to get back to sparkpeople as quick as I possibly could! <BR> <BR> I had a set back on monday when I did my weigh in, after we went on our first walk of the day, I broke down to my husband :( I cried, I screamed and I cried alot more! <BR> <BR> I have a issue with being HOT or sweating. Now I know both are needed to lose weight, but I have Hemochromatosis, (too much Iron builds up in the body) and one of the issu...

I find that I NEED motivation! because I left and I gained back 28 pounds :( Yesterday I was in my size 18 jeans and I was so uncomfortable that I looked at my husband and said I need to go back on a diet and lose this weight!
