Update 2/17/14
This is the year I will begin again. I now have a lawyer to start my divorce. It's very tough because my husband is in total denial and does NOT want the divorce. Hoping it will not become ugly but taking things one day at a time. still struggling to finish Graduate school but hope to be back at it in Sept.

This is the year I will begin again. I now have a lawyer to start my divorce. It's very tough because my husband is in total denial and does NOT want the divorce. Hoping it will not become ugly but taking things one day at a time. still struggling to finish Graduate school but hope to be back at it in Sept.
About me:
I'm a 40 yr old mother of 2. I have a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood/Special Education. A major that is near and dear to me! I'm now working towards my Masters in Special Education. All I have left to do is my Master's project and I'm FINISHED. I work at a school that specializes in working with children with Autism. I am a 1:1 aide. I am certified to teach special and general education, but work where I can...teaching jobs are hard to find. Still looking for that head teaching job.

My daughter is 9 and is in 3rd grade, and she has ADHD. She is a creative and beautiful girl who I swear will make a wonderful actress one day! My son is 13 and is in 7th grade. He is a child with Asperger's syndrome (high functioning Autism) and bipolar. He is in a day school for children with special needs and behavior issues. He is a bright and wonderful boy who can do anything he puts his mind to with the right support. He is the reason I went back to school to become a special education teacher.

I had gastric bypass surgery in Nov 2001. My highest weight was about 340. It was terrible. I got down to 170-180 at my lowest after surgery. After having my daughter in 2004 I found it a bit easier to put on some pounds.

I want to get down under 200 again and then if I can, get to at least 190. Its been a real struggle lately. I have a bad knee, softening of the cartilage and problems with my knee cap so I have to start re-evaluating my exercise habits. I like dancing workouts like Hip Hop Abs and Rockin' Body and Zumba!

Eating is what trips me up a lot so I could use alot of tips! I can work out like crazy but I struggle with making the right eating choices.
