Hello! My name is Amy. I am 37 years old. I am married to my high school sweetheart Neil (18 years on June 8th!), have 2 kiddos (Connor 13 and Vada 7), work at an elementary school as a kitchen helper, and also watch my neice and nephews.

I struggle with bad eating, PCOS, and my weight. It all goes hand in hand with me. If my weight is high (like it is) my PCOS symptoms and issues go up and vice versa if my weight goes down.

I recently suffered a 2nd trimester stillbirth (a little baby boy we named Logan) so I am emotionally recovering from that but am jumping back into my Low Carb eating and working out.

Member Since: 12/27/2010

My Goals:
My 1st Major Goal is to get to 170 , then 150, and hopefully ultimately 135. Though I am not as interested in scale/numbers as I am in the way my clothes fit. I would LOVE to fit into a size 11/12 or /10/12 pair of jeans again! I have about 4 pairs in my closet I have never worn. Hoarder, I know but...I just can't stomach to throw them away! Also to wear a shirt that doesn't have an X in first of the size would be wonderful to!

Right now I am a size 16 (depending on the jean) and a size XL/1X (depending on the shirt) . I tend to wear Tshirts as they make me feel the most comfortable though I have been buying different shirts to lean away from those.

My Program:
I am doing Low Carb, walking, some running, Slim in 6, and Focus T25. I have a Row Machine so will use that as well.

Personal Information:
Living outside of Delphi w/ my family (Hubby, 2 kids, and 6 fur kids.)

I work at an elementary school as a server/food prepper. I am on a feet a lot as I help cook and do the serving.

You can always look me up on facebook also. Let me know if you want my link!

Other Information:
I do much better with motivated words from fellow Sparkers. I don't mean to sound needy but sometimes I just need that PUSH from others going through the same thing I am.

    Yah, you're right about me being the primary patient, I just wanted the doctor to get weighed too, haha. It does feel good to get some answers. I feel like I'm trying to find a good balance right now between being proactive and minimizing pressure. You know, after two years, one can assume it's not going to happen unless you change something. Right now I still feel like I'm in control of the process, but I can see how this sort of thing gets overwhelming very quickly!

    Let's see, each Metformin pill I have is 500 mg, so I guess I'm taking 1000 mg X2 a day, for a total of 2000 mg a day. The Emoquette is a birth control pill, I don't know how it's supposed to work other than preventing pregnancy. :) This is new territory for me since I'd never taken hormonal birth control. :( The weird things you'll do to try to get pregnant, huh?

    Woo, if my drinks-besides-water were healthy things like tea and V8, I wouldn't sweat it either! :D Way to go for the no pop thing (or should I say COKE - Texans all say coke for everything)!
