I know life isn't going to always be sunshine and rainbows, but when you do get them... it makes it so much more amazing!

I married my amazing husband and best friend 9-4-10. I run a daycare out of my home and work part time at a local thrift store. I have very little time to myself but I enjoy everything that I do. In my free time I am addicted to facebook, love to watch movies with my husband, Tony, and read. I am a new couponer that is trying to build a stockpile so that I can actually make a profit on my daycare this year. I am obsessively organized and tend to have my whole life reflective of my massive organizational skills. The only thing I dont have under control is my weight. I have been heavy ever since I was approximately 11. I was raped at an early age and tend to be an emotional eater. At one point of my life I was an alcoholic. I am hoping to learn how to positively tend to my emotions with things other than food. I gained quite a bit of weight in the last year. I miscarried a miracle baby in October of 2009. I was told for 6 years I would never have children and suddenly found myself pregnant at the beginning of the relationship with my husband. We were so excited, just to be let down. I have been told by my obgyn that if I loose a substantial amount of weight that the chances of becoming pregnant become more and more likely. I am willing to do what I need to do to become the mother that I so desperately want to be. I am starting this journey for what seems like the 100th time but I now have a purpose. I want to be healthier for me and my husband and for our future children!

I started fertility drugs this month and was told today that I still didn't ovulate. This is most likely due to my weight. I have to do something or I will never have the baby that I want so badly! I 'm not getting any younger and I am only getting worse on my own so I AM BACK!

RECOMMIT: 8/12/12
I have been gone for quite awhile for a good reason. I ovulated on my second round of fertility drugs and got pregnant. My son Benjamin (Benny) Daniel was born 7-30-12. My husband and I fell in love with him immediately. We waited so long for him and we decided we would like to try for another child soon. I gained quite a bit of weight while pregnant and topped out at around 360lbs. I want to get under 300 at least before we start trying for our second child. What motivation! I am so excited to be back and hope for an even bigger success than the other times!

    Welcome to the 300+team. 300 is such a BIG number but if we persevere, focus and motivate one another we can reach our goals!
    We have so much of life ahead of us and it is so much better to work on ourselves and reach for our goals.
    We can do it-- we are worth the effort!
    All we can do is take it one day, one bite, one pound at a time.
    I am looking forward to supporting you in your quest for better health and a happier future.

    Aloha Sparker! I just wanted to drop you a line on here and tell you I am not a crazy stalker. I am just a picture junkie, so I LOVE the 30 days in picture blogs. What can I say, it is the addictive personality in me!!!

    I also love your 30 days in pictures! For your emotional issues, try journaling, getting outside, painting/ drawing (any hobby), walking to running programs(signing up for a 5K this summer... you can do it!), and just learning to accept what your life has brought you. We never forget, but we don't get better until we learn to make the bad, with the good, a part of who we are. Being confident in our own skin is more than a number, it's a state of mind.
