Healthier Lifestyle for a Young Family

Before giving birth to my son, I weighed in at over 200 pounds. I lost weight the whole time I was pregnant, then giving birth, I lost more. I have about 40 more pounds I NEED to lose! I want to have a healthier lifestyle for my family and myself. I deserve it and they deserve to have me stay around longer!

Before giving birth to my son, I weighed in at over 200 pounds. I lost weight the whole time I was pregnant, then giving birth, I lost more. I have about 40 more pounds I NEED to lose! I want to have a healthier lifestyle for my family and myself. I deserve it and they deserve to have me stay around longer!

When my husband and I started thinking of having children we had no idea that it would become a challenge. I became pregnant in August of 2007, just a few months of trying and we were very excited. However after only a few days of being excited I experienced my first miscarriage. It was a painful experience both physically and emotionally. With the help of my mother I turned to God during this heartbreaking experience. I learned to trust in Him and have Faith through difficult times. I was seeking God and His Will through it all. I prayed everyday that it would be God's will for me to be pregnant. Oh I want to be pregnant more than anything!!

Well in January of 2008, I learned that I was pregnant again! I was excited but I was scared at the same time. Well, before we could even tell our parents the news I had my second miscarriage. I was devastated. I went to the doctor and had multiple tests done and learned of a few problems that could be taken care of with just a few pills.

After the first month past and I still wasn't pregnant, we decided to wait because my Dad had a heart attack and I had lost my job all in the same month. I didn't want the stress of it all.

Well, of course when it wasn't my timing it was God's timing. I became pregnant in April 2008. It turns out that with God you don't need a medication! He did it on His own.

I learned so much during my pregnancy about God and His timing!!

Now I have been blessed with a healthy beautiful baby boy. I thank God for him everyday!!

I am changing my lifestyles for my family and myself!!

Hey Charity love the gloves thank you so much I was teaching my boxing class yesterday and it felt so good. I really gave my clients a great boxing workout I love it so much. I cant thank the Lord enough for you and your mom knowing you both are there for me is truly overwhelming. I told your mom next spring Im coming out to spend a week with all of you I cant wait for that. God is truly amazing as I go through this and I give him all the GLORY for what he is doing in my life. Im praying for you and your family always keep Jesus close he loves you so much and so do I.

Jesus first
