Hey! Did you see the latest daily spark article? I really like it! Good to keep in mind when the scale is not moving (or moving in the wrong direction like mine!!) or you are dealing with med conditions that make it especially difficult. :-)

Welcome to the group!!! Special education is a tough but rewarding field. I just left a special ed position to teach and advise college students but I miss the little kiddos. Good luck as you work toward your goals.

Hi Sue. PCOS is Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. It causes all sorts of problems. The major one being infertilty. It took us 3 years to have our son and were told prior to that, that we wouldn't have a biological child. Insulin-Resistance is a symptom of it as well as carrying excess weight in your abdominal area. It's a nasty disease all around.

Welcome, Shanon! I'm 5'2. I hear you on the height issue. We are all just funsized here! emoticon I think it's good to be on a team with similar heights. Our taller sisters/brothers have a slightly different take since they can carry the weight better even if they are the same weight as us. We just look heavier with it! :( My sisters area taller than me.

Sorry, what is PCOS? I carry weight around my lower stomach area, too, but that's probably a genetic thing for me since my mom and sister have the same thing going on.

I'm sure your 2.5 year-old son keeps you busy! :)
Oh, I'm a teacher, too! :)

Hi! I'm Shannon. I am about 5'3" which is tough for weight. We all know that when you are short, every pound shows. I also am insulin-resistant. My last doctor said she's fairly sure I have PCOS. A symptom of the disease is that you carry weight around your stomach and have a really hard time losing it. Yep. That's me.

I am married and have a wonderful 2.5 year old son. I have taught elementary school for the past 5 years, but we recently moved and I am taking the opportunity to substitute teach and work on my Masters degree in Special Education.
