So I will start at the beginning so you know about the journey I have had before joining Mamavation.
In 2007 I had some pretty major stuff going on. I was still coping with the loss of never being able to have children again. I had to have a hysterectomy. My marriage was falling apart. I felt frumpy, unattractive, like a whale. In all honesty I was that whale. I had in 7 years taken my 125 pounds and ate myself to 350 pounds.
January 1 I never make resolutions. That year for whatever reason I did. I haven’t looked back since. I called the 4th and made my first appointment with Dr. Darren Tishler. I love this man more than anyone can know. He gave me my life back. I went through all kinds of testing and proving I was worthy of Lap band. It was the hardest time of my life but I was fighting to get me back. I was sick. I had diabetes,high blood pressure. I was also able to get a true accurate diagnosis of my remitting and relapsing ms.
In six months of this surgery I was off my meds for high blood pressure and diabetes. I felt great. I was loving my new life. I still am. I had lost 160 pounds. I gained 16 back from stress and not caring. I am so angry with myself for that.
So I got back out my Jillian Michael’s wii game and will be getting my eas active thanks to the mamavation twitter party. I am so excited and so thankful for that. Now to wear my husband down on the shoes by earth footwear. Insert evil grin here.
So that is my journey this far.
