howdy! i just joined the team after receiving a goodie from APPALACHIA28...um...i posted a blog entry a few days ago that pretty much covers my PCOS/TTC story so if you're interested, feel free to dive into that.
beyond that stuff, my name is anna, i'm 28 and i just celebrated my 8th anniversary. i went to school to be a special ed teacher (but didn't graduate for a variety of reasons). i'm currently working as a direct care worker in a couple AFC homes with people with developmental disabilities and/or mental illness. some days it's a really hard job, other days, i basically get paid to hang out and do some cleaning. :)
i live in northern lower michigan with my husband and some cats....i want to say five cats, but one of them has been missing for just over a week so i think i need to start saying four now.... :( my husband is a student and will be working on commercial ships in a couple years.
i've been trying to lose weight basically my whole adult life. my highest weight ever (known) is 320 lbs....i may have actually been just a smidge higher than that tho. my official goal is to "cease to be obese" which would be 170 lbs or less. i've never been skinny. i don't think i'd feel like me if i lost enough weight to not be considered at least a little chubby. ;)
i guess that's it for now. i look forward to getting to know you all!
