I am Samantha and I love life, but I despise the fact that I can not live it as I want to. My weight hinders me, so I would like to go from 291 to 140 by NEXT christmas! I think I can do it! But I will need a lot of help! Im a 29 year old who has been married 5 years. I am unable to bare children but with God all things are possible. Candace Cameron Bure is a godly example of allowing Christ to head our weightloss attempts. I am striving daily to let Him have the reigns in every area of life...imcluding weight loss. Please pray for and encourage me every chance you can.

    I wanted to tell you how truly sorry I am for the deeply sad news that you have been given by doctor(s) about having children. Please remember that just like you or I, doctor's are only human and they are not always right, but even if God forbid they are, to never give up hope either.

    If I may share a story with you, then I would like to tell you mine...

    After I married, I was anxious to have our first child, but I could not seem to become pregnant even though we had tried for a quite some time. Finally, I saw my Ob/Gyn who saw something wrong in my tests and sent me to an Endocrinologist who ran more tests and said to come back in a few weeks.

    Upon my return, the Endocrinologist came into the room and in a matter of a minute, maybe two, he told me that my test results were back. At that time, he proceeded to say that I had something called "Insulin Resistance" causing me to not produce an egg each month, therefore, I had no chance of ever becoming pregnant. He then turned and left the room, without another word, as if it did not matter that I was only 23 years old... I was completely devastated.

    For the next two years, I did not have a single period and then I had a death in the family, someone who was very dear to me. At which time, I had my first period in two years, but I assumed that it was because of stress and thought nothing of it. Two months later, or 8 weeks to the day after my cycle had ended and my husband and I had been intimate, I became sick, with what I thought was food poisoning. Three days in a row, I was sick in the morning and eating just fine by afternoon, but never did I think that I was pregnant, not in a million years. Until the fourth night, when a nurse I worked with, who had five children told me, "You're pregnant."

    Miracles do come true and doctors are not always right, as proven by my one little story... My children are now both grown and in college, as well as, very familiar with being called my two miracle babies.

    So if you have given up, perhaps finding comfort in food, as I clearly remember that I did during that very sad, sad time in my own life, then please consider getting a second opinion. If you have already done that, then my advice is to do a few things, first stop trying, because as long as your mind and your body are under the stress of wanting a baby, it may not happen.

    For me, it was two years later, I had given up on the idea of having a baby and began focusing on making our home a place for just the two of us to enjoy. We got a puppy, then a second puppy which kept very busy, almost like two babies and I felt happier at home again. I began to walk in the park with my husband, started eating healthier, losing weight and my stress level went down, which I think all of these things combined helped me to conceive my first child.

    My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you as I can only imagine how you must feel and I hope that my letter might give you comfort.

    Many Blessings...
