What I wrote when I first joined Spark

Hi. I am a 25yr old mom of one and I work from home. I don't ever remember being a "healthy" weight but am trying very hard to get to my "healthy" weight now. I am a member of a gym, I eat pretty healthy.

I have always been a little chubby. Then in 2002 I had a miscarrage and fell into depression and gained 45 pounds. Then I had my wonderfull son who is now 4 (I gained 65 pounds with this pregnancy as I was afraid of having a miscarrage). I got married in feb 07 and gained the newly wed 20 (extra 20 pounds). Just recently (may 07) I just had another miscarrage. The doctors told me that it was because of my weight that I got pre-eclamptic before the baby was 8 weeks along and that forced it to abort itself. That sent me into depression again and I am just getting over it. I have gained another 45 pounds.

I am now looking for others who are in my age group and looking to loose 100+ pounds.

Right now I am at my most at 270 and the dr say I need to be 160-140. That is my goal. I want to acomplish my goal by my 27th birthday.

    You can do it. Several on the Alaska want to lose about the same amount of weight and are about the same age, too (not me - I'm older).

    Im sorry to hear about you miscarriges. Im sure that was a vary hard time in your life and it is completely understandable that you gained weight from depression.
    I know that you can get to a healthy weight by your 27th birthday. I believe you can. You know you can. If you need support keep me in mind. I am here anytime.
