My name is Elizabeth and I am NOW 35! Still married and mom to a NOW three year old girl. I joined Sparkpeople in May 2009 . I lost 40 pounds before I joined SP. I lost an additional 20 with SP. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and Hypoglycemia in 2003. This past year I was also diagnosed with Hashimoto's.
My life changed drastically a few months ago. I closed my home business, left my daughter to return to a regular job and then started my regular job as a Kindergarten teacher in a low income/poverty school. It has been tough.
I am trying to reconnect with SP and my friends on SP because I really do draw inspiration from their success and struggles.

    Hiya, Your Zumba comment made me smile. They are starting it at my gym in September. I just know I would be rubbish at it. I can't do more than one thing at the same time. Move my arms AND my hips AND my legs? No chance!

    HEEEEY! emoticon Seems like its been forever! So much has gone on in my life. Good things, kinda emoticon Overall life is good. Just had a hectic 30 days . . . daughters 3rd birthday, our wedding/honeymoon, and son's 1st birthday all between May 29th to July 1st . . . in-laws came down twice and even tho I love em to pieces, it's always so hectic when they are here. On the weight loss front, it was a 10pounds weight gain! I gave up all control and just went with the flow, enjoying all the junk food and eating out. It was nice but it came at a price. Yesterday was my first day back on SP and i weighed myself this morning for the heck of it - lost 2 pounds so maybe half of the 10 is water weight?! We will see :o) Hope all is well with u. Whats new on ur side of the country?

    Your message made me go back onto Spark for this first time in ages. How irritating is it that life gets in the way of living well?
    Thanks for your kindness. I want to say it is easier now, but it isn't. She is at 32 weeks and massive and complaining all the time about how much hard work it is, and all I want to do is shake her and ask her if she knows how lucky she is.
    I've pledged to myself that I will track for the rest of July, just that, and see how I get on. Tiny steps again!
    Love Caroline

    Hi Liz,

    Thanks for your concern. I think I did finally get over the vertigo bout. I don't get them very often and they don't ususally last very long, but this one did. I had to take meclizine for it and I hate that because they make me soooo sleepy. But, I'm doing o.k. now. Thanks again. Love, Susan
