2014 UPDATE : From September 2012 to August 2013 I lost 58 pounds. 23 of those pounds I lost while on Sparkpeople. I got married and moved to VA, and have a beautiful Boxer Puppy named Lola Jean. I also started a new job, teaching High School Special Education. I was on a role, but with the stress of the new job and changes to my life September to December the weight started to creep back on. I gained back 17 pounds!!! UGH!!! So its the new year and I am ready to get back on target. Sparks definitely works, it is me that needs to change, so here I go!

I married an awesome, loving man in April 2013 and am happier than ever. I reached my goal that I set for my wedding date, but now it is time to get in shape for trying to conceive. (We are not trying right now, but in about a year or so we would like to start, and I want to be completely ready for it on my end).

The doctors have diagnosed me with PSOS, but I am responding positively to a medicine and have increased my chances to conceive naturally by 60 percent! My doctors would like me to lose another 32-42 pounds before having a baby, which I think is 100 % doable. Personally, I would like to see myself down another 50 pounds, but I will start with the smaller goal of 30 pounds.

I am keeping track of my measurements and am setting monthly goals for myself. Measurements are important because sometimes you can lose no weight but lose a couple inches. Anyway that I can say I am getting smaller will be considered a win -win in my book!

I wish you all the best of luck in your weight loss journey, I am on here a lot so feel free to add me as a friend and we can chat!
