I turned 30 in September 2005 and have struggled with my weight since I was 20. In Dec 2003 I found out I was pregnant. I had not been to a Dr. in awhile, just avoided them as much as possible. I knew I was overweight but didnt know how overweight I was. I went to the Dr. for a check up and I got on the scale and was 280 pounds ....WHAT 280!!! OMG I couldnt believe it, I was IMBARESSED. The Dr. told me I was MORBIDLY OBESE and if I had a healthy pregnancy it would be a miracle. She also told me I would not be able to hear my baby's heartbeat untill about my 6th month because of my weight. She told me I did not need to gain any weight "I was big enough for my baby to grow into my body". I got in my car and cried. Nobody had ever told me the thigs she had and I was crushed. In my fifth month I went into labor and on April 3, 2004 I had a premature little boy, he was stillborn. I blamed myself. I said to myself IM NOT HEALTHY how can I have a HEALTHY BABY? I went into a deep depression. One day I got out of bed and said to myself only I can change this. I started walking 1 hour everyday. I noticed I was losing weight by the way my clothes were fitting. I wanted more, I started Tae Bo in my garage 5 days a week. I wanted more, I started strength training. I lost 70 pounds ...WOW 70. I felt good & I slept good!! I went from a size 26/28 to a size 16/18 and it feels good. I have since gained back some extra pounds and today my weight is 228 pounds.

1/24/08 UPDATE: IM BACK!
Hellp SP Im back. Sorry had to take some time off to deal with the trails and tribulations of life. IM A DIVORCED WOMAN NOW! It was my choice and I couldnt be happier with the descision I made for me and my children. Got on the scale this morning and it read 228 pounds. I imediatly thought something is wrong. So I got on it again ..nope it was right ..228. So now my goal is 175 by Dec, 08. I CAN DO IT!! So here I am back at it. WISH ME LUCK!
