In April 2010 I joined Sparkpeople. I was very dedicated to making life changes that would improve my health, fitness and hopefully increase my fertility. I have been overweight my whole life. I tried every diet and system out there. I knew everything there was to know about losing weight and healthy eating. But I did not practice what I preached. Over the year I lost about 25 pounds. That was 25% of my ultimate 100 pound goal and over 10% body weight lost. It may not seem like a lot to some but I was very proud that in one year I lost weight and did not gain any! One of my ultimate reasons to losing weight was so that I could get pregnant and hopefully sustain a pregnancy. I had suffered multiple losses since 2006 and since 2008 had not been able to fall pregnant again. In February 2011 I discovered I was pregnant but it wasn't meant to be. However, silver lining is that some miscarriages will boost fertility and I conceived a new pregnancy at the end of February (Happy birtdhay to me!) UPDATE: She is here! My baby girl arrived 6 weeks early on Oct 8. She weighed a healthy 5lbs and 14oz. I had probably developed gestational diabetes and this is why she was big. She was and still is very healthy and after a 3 week stay in the Neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) she came home on Oct 30! UPDATE 2 We added to our family in April. A handsome fella who came 6 weeks early like his sister. Healthy and happy and such a good baby. I am motivated to make this happen!
