Hello everyone. I am a 25 year old married mother of a beautiful girly girl princess. I am morbidly obese. I am now the largest I have ever been at 338. I have always been a larger girl, but could always carry the weight well, was very healthy and had a lot of energy. I was a cheerleader in school, had a lot of friends and no one ever knew I was close to 200 lbs. After high school I was on a roller coaster battle with my weight. Gained 30 lbs, lost 50 and so on and so forth. When I became pregnant I was 280 lbs. It was not until after I had my daughter that I the weight started getting to me. I actually lost 20 lbs when I was pregnant and ate the best I ever did in my whole life. I had tons of energy and everything. I had to have an emergency c-section with my daughter and had a horrible hospital experience and hard recovery. (they didn't give my any medicine except for ibuprofen the whole time I was in the hospital and they treated me horribly.) When I got home I started feeling much better and actually within 5 days after the surgery when my staples were taken out I walked about a mile and was feeling well...sore...but well. The area where they cut me has been a problem ever since. I have horrible pains every day and I have seen myself emotionally and physically wearing down. I do not have energy anymore. I know I am depressed. I couldn't fit into any cute clothes anymore. I was really down. I am really glad I have a supportive husband who loves me for me and actually is attracted to me after everything I have went through he has pretty much had to carry me through. He has waited on me hand and foot pretty much since I gave birth. But, that is the bad thing. My body has became weaker. It is just hard to wake up in the morning let alone run after a toddler all day. I am the largest I have EVER been and the weight I am carrying around is taking its toll on me. I am wanting to loose weight even if it is 30 lbs. I know it would be a start. I am wanting to find people who would like to loose weight too and have support on I know what will be a long journey ahead.
