I have been away from sparkpage quite a while. During that time I was pregnant with my fifth and last baby! While pregnant I had gestational diabetes and this was a wake up call for me. Diabetes runs in my family on both side and I don't want to be next in developing diabetes type two because of my weight and lifestyle. My pregnancy was a blessing in disguse, because I had to change my way of eating, cutting carbs to less than half of what I had been accustomed to eating and no sugar! I had to start eating clean. It was hard at first but,it was the best thing I could ever do for me and baby. Natually my body began to lose the weight. After baby was born there was a twenty pound weight lose, and beautiful healthy baby boy! I feel really good and I feel like I "got this" I can lose the weight and change the way I eat for good. I do have some slips here and then, that's why I am here returning to spark people to stay focused and on track.
