I was slim my Junior & Senior year of high school & remained so, until I was about 20. Living on my own & eating ramen, macaroni & hot dogs because of my meager budget took a toll. Add to that minimum wage jobs I HATED, trying to work my way through college, and a few failed relationships that broke my heart & stir!
I lost a lot of weight when I joined the Navy as an attempt to pay for college, but HOLY CRAP!! Did I ever not know what I was in for!!! After failing at that, I came back slimmer, but I was back to working crap jobs & the "fiance" I thought loved me. He broke up with me after 3 years of broken promises & never setting a date.
I went through a self destructive phase, lost some weight & started to look good again only to get into a 2 year unhealthy rebound relationship. I had actually gotten my first decent job, but experienced some heart-breaking times with my family. My world felt like it was falling apart, and you guessed it, I packed on the pounds!!!
I had more ups & downs in the years that followed that. I got myself a dog, my best friend, a black lab named Lizzy! I think dogs are just the most wonderful creatures in the world!! Who besides a dog jumps for joy when ever they see you & thinks you're great no matter what!!
I started Mary Kay in the fall of 2005 & was over-joyed to be around positive, goal-oriented women!! I went through one more rocky relationship & struggled while living on my own. I took me awhile to to get the hang of how to make my business work & I worked minimum wage jobs in the summer & sometimes 2 jobs during the school year.
In March 17, 2006 I was matched with my husband Gabe on eharmony.com!!! We communicated for 6 months before finally meeting in person & in October of 2006 I moved to Gillette, WY. Gabe is the most wonderful man in the world and we were married February 10, 2007!!!
My family lives almost 2,000 miles away, however, & I managed to put on another 30 or 40lbs due to homesickness!!! Sheesh!!
So, can you say "emotional eater"?!!!!
My husband and I have been trying for three years to get pregnant. I've lost 29lbs, got my blood sugar & insulin issues under control, but I just found out I have high triglycerides. So now I have to get that under control before we can have a baby. I feel like I've been waiting forever!! I just have to take a deep breath, count my blessings, and put my nose back to the grindstone.
I have a wonderful husband, two great dogs, I work for myself as an Independent Beauty Consultant in Mary Kay, and we have a lovely home. I do miss my family, but I'm doing great in Mary Kay should be able to take more trips home. The only thing missing is the pitter-patter of little feet! And it is with-in my power to change that!
I'm losing the rest of my weight and getting healthy!!! And I'm going to work Today, NOT Tomorrow!!!
I am losing weight to improve my overall health, hopefully cure my sleep apnea, and get my body ready to start a family!!
I am logging everything I eat in the nutrition page, and taking my dogs for walks every day!! I work & workout at Curves twice a week, and just got a Wii Fit that I plan to use on the other days.
My name is Jessica and I'm orginally from Salem, OR. I am currently living in Gillette, WY with my husband and 2 dogs. I actually met my husband, the most wonderful man in the world, on eharmony!! Yes, yes, it does work! And no, I haven't put in to be on one of the commercials yet!!
I am also a Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay. I love being my own boss and yes, I will drive that Pink Cadillac when I earn it!!
