As you can see we have a race. :) My sister Brenda and AJ's sister Tammy are both pregnant. I know Tammy will deliver first but it looks like race. The other ticker is my journey into weight loss. As you can see a lot is gone but I just got over the hump. I started on Novemeber 1, 2008 with this weight loss clinic and lost 30 in the first month. Yes that is a big 30! Trust me when I say it was NOT easy during the holidays and I did allow myself one bite of a cookie (very small), I let AJ pull a piece off and give it to me. The reason I started this whole eating right thing was in part of my fertility Doctor. After almost 7 years of trying for baby it has taken it's toll on my body. Between the drugs and procedures I look like I should have had 3 kids by now. Besides it really is not good to try to get pregnant when you are heavy anyways, to many risks especially with all the issues I have. Well, between 3 different doctors they have finally found all the problems. I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), Endometriosis and endometrial hyperplasia. So even when I was on the Clomid it would have never worked without trigger shots and other pills. My pap came back abnormal as well this month and they had to do a uterine biopsy. I went the other day to get the results and the cells are worse than they were two years ago. Part of this could have been prevented if I did not skip last years pap. Now they have to perform a LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure), basically a more invasive biopsy and scraping the abnormal cells, the samples go to Pathology. I do not have cancer but I am in the precancerous stage, it is a warning sign and some of it can be fixed and reversed. After that procedure two months later I have to go back to break up the scar tissue so we can try again. For the next two years I have to have a pap every 3-4 months depending on what the test results from the LEEP show. We can keep trying in those two years, hopefully I will have lost the rest of the weight by the end of April (I am shooting for a goal of my 35th birthday that month). Well that is enough depressing news for now. :) I am keeping a VERY positive attitude about all this. I do feel very blessed though since I never really get sick or hurt and if this is my only issue I can be thankful. If nothing comes about by the end of this year though we are going to start the paperwork for adoption. :) I will post pictures of the weight loss though soon, so keep an eye out. LOVE TO ALL!!!!!!
