Well lets see....I have been married to the same wonderful man for 11 years, and I am a 32 year old mother to a miracle baby who is now 2 1/2, and a 15 year old step daughter whom my husband and I have full custody of. I am also a mother to 5 (yes 5!!) angel babies in heaven. After YEARS of miscarriages and heartache, I found out when I got pregnant with my miracle baby Maddisyn Grace that I have SEVERAL blood clotting disorders(Duffy, Antiphospholipid, Anticardiolipin and the Lupus Anticoagulant) on top of a malfunctioning thyroid. My pregnancy with her was awful!! I had to do Lovenox injections (blood thinners) twice a day, bed rest from week 12 due to bleeding and a whole lot of steroids and other meds. My princess was born at 28 week, 1 day weighing a great big 1 lb 12 oz. She spent 2 months in the NICU at RCRMC and was sent home at 3 lbs. By the grace of God, she is HEALTHY! She is actually advanced for her age, physically and mentally. I am sooooo lucky. With all that said, that is pretty much what led me to be in the physical shape that I am in now. Dont get me wrong...I have NEVER been a thin girl. I was on Atkins before I got pregnent with her, and I lost 70 lbs in 7 months, but I gained it all back plus 60 lbs extra since then, now I tip the scales at 346 lbs. I am the biggest that I have ever been. I want to get in shape for my own good, but also for my family that I love sooooo very much. I want to be healthy for them so that we can do more fun things, and set an example for my girls. Its very important to me.
