I weighed myself this morning and the scale read


I cant' believe i'm in the 150's already. Another 4 more pounds and that's how much I weighed when I got here to Germany and right before I started having my babies. Not that it was good that I was 154 but it's a start. About 8 months before I got to germany I was about 138 or something like that.. i put on about 20lbs when my dad started chemo.

I totally stopped exercising... I used to get fast food because that was all the time I had for... I was still in the Army (reserve), working full time, and going to school full time.

My days started at 6am... go to work until 4pm... then go to school until 10pm... then I would head over to the hospital to relieve my mom that had been at the hospital the whole day with my dad... I would stay there until she came back which was pretty late at night. I would get a couple of hours of sleep here and there but that was it.

Towards the end of my dad's life.. I had stopped going to school, put in my resignation at work and spent most my days at the hospital. A couple months after, my dad passed away and I was a total mess on the inside but I had to remain strong because I've always been the one the family leans on for comfort... my dad passed away June 04 and in August 04 I came to join my husband in Germany.. that's when I broke down and went into deep depression for the first 6 months I was here.

By the way... almost that entire time.. me and my husband were trying to conceive and werent' successful. I used to cry for days because all my dad ever asked me was.. when am I going to get a grandson. I would tell him.. we're trying dad, but it's not happening.. I'm so sorry. I knew that I wasnt' going to get pregnant before he passed away and there was nothing I could do.

When I hit 154.. i was like..wait a minute.. what am I doing. So I started working out and then Oct 04, I saw my first BFP.

Anyway... sorry.. I like went way off on a tangent.. but I needed that. I miss my dad so much.. it still hurts as if it just happened yesterday. The tears just roll of my face whenever I talk about it. Okay.. I need to stop crying.. my kids are about to wake up and my daughter will sure ask me why I'm crying.

Sorry for rambling off like that.. but I gave ya a little bit of my background
