I am 35 years old. I am married to my highschool honey and have been for 16 years. We have a 18 year old daughter, and a 4 year old daughter that live with us. And a daughter who would have been 16 that watchs us from heaven. We recently lost another baby at 7 weeks along. After the loss of our 2nd daughter we tried to have another baby for almost 11 years with no luck.....then 5 years ago Wham-o I was miracliously pregnant!!! I lost 55 pounds after her birth but gained about 25 back, I want it gone again and for good this time!!!
I feel that I have had some bad thing happens in my life that hinder my weight loss.But I do have some good thing too!!! Just to give you a glimpse...

September 11,1993~I gave birth to my first daughter at the age of 17(her birth was not a bad thing, just having her so younger)

February 13,1995~I gave birth to my 2nd daughter, who passed away inutro due to her cord being around her neck at 7 months , we had no idea until that morning at 8:30 am and she came because I choose to be induced,(she was already gone) and at 7:28 pm I gave birth to one of the most beautiful baby girls I have ever seen...I love you Baby!!!

February 16, 1995 Said Good bye to "My Baby" for the last time

February 1997 My husband undergoes surgery to help try to have another baby.

October 1999 My uncle Frank(45and my moms brother) was diagonsed with lung cancer

February 26 2000 My gramdpa(Franks dad) was diagonsed with lung cancer

April 14 2000 My Gramps lost his battle with cancer as well...6 weeks after his son

Things were going pretty well for a while but still no baby, so I went to the doctor, it had been 5 years since I lost the baby and was wondering why I still was not pregnant. Turns out I had was no longer ovulating, so I could not and would not be able to get pregnant. I was crushed!!!

July 2002~my aunt Mary(moms sister) was told she had Hepatitus

July 22, 2003 My GRAMS(mom's mom and MY FAVORITE PERSON IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!!!) had open heart surgery, didnt turn out like it should have.

July 28 2009 Jim's back far so good!!!!But still no income(work comp is refusing to pay!)

Ummm...Did I mention that I am a stay at home mom and babysit 8 kids during the day!!Yes I know CRAZY WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!

I found this little saying as I was going through some of my grandparents things.....

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with it's twist and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up thought the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit
