Hubby came home in March. He was completely unharmed except for that one mishap during a rollover. He and I are doing wonderful. I missed him every minute he was gone, and welcoming him home was one of the most powerful experiences of my life.
We began seeing a fertility specialist in April. Turns out that I have severe PCOS, and was not ovulating at all. Also, the PCOS is the reason why I got so damn fat. ugh...well, that and the fact that I hated the gym. lol. Anyway, I was put on a Metformin, clomid, HCG, progestrone regimen. And also, lots of sex. HA! It took almost no time to start ovulating and then....
I got my big fat positive on JULY 4th! I lost 30 lbs, and with the help of the meds, we conceived our first child in June. We will be finding out the gender next week.
We now live in Hawaii. It is a HUGE change for me, and at first, I didn't like it at all. We have been here for 2 1/2 months now, and I am adjusting much better. We have a beautiful home, and we are so ready for little love to be here. Also, a huge plus is that hubs will not be deploying while we are stationed here. That means he won't miss the monumental events that happen in the first few years of a childs life.
My best friend and her family are stationed here as well, and I could not be happier. I hated the idea of being away from my beautiful Goddaughters, but then God saw fit to send them here with us.
I must say that I live a truely blessed life. I have never been happier than I am right now.

Also, dont assume that, just because someone is fat, that they are lazy. I know for me, I cant lose weight on my own. It's very difficult. The doctors believe I have an illness that is causing this. I eat healthy, I work out, and I DONT do the fast food thing. Not everyone who is fat got that way on their own. Personally, I had a lot of trials in my life that helped lead to where I am. I was hit by a car when I was 12. I can only do so much before my knee and back say, "NO MORE!" I have 10 screws and a metal plate in my left femur, and arthritis in my lower back. I've had two reconstructive surgeries on my femur, and I've broken my neck in two places, which sometimes still gives me trouble. Im lucky to be walking. Hell, Im lucky to be alive. I have depression and PTSD (which is NOT just something that soldiers get), which also can cause weight gain. I have a lot of stress. I may have PCOS.
All of these are excuses, or at least they seem to be, but I can assure you that NO ONE has a right to say whether or not a fat person is lazy, because a lot of the time, its something else entirely.
Dont judge a book by its cover. Try reading a chapter or two.

I think this is where I run into problems. I dont appreciate the peace. This is an issue Ive had my entire life. Im always going, going, going. I never stop and smell the roses. I never stop to appreciate the little things. Because of this, I cannot understand why people are perfectly content just sitting around and doing nothing sometimes. I cannot look out a window and just comment on how gorgeous the snow looks as the sun reflects off of it. I am always wanting to go somewhere, do something. I cant sit still. This, apparently, gets on the nerves of some people, just as their "slothfulness" gets to me.
There has to be a happy medium though, and through communication, we will find that medium. It will take time, and with what is looming over our heads, its going to take longer than either of us would like, but it will happen. When its meant to.
The first 2 years of a marriage are hard. You throw the military into it, and you will find that the first 10 years are hard. But God hand-picked me to be married to this man, just as he hand-picked him to serve our nation as a soldier. Our life isnt perfect, but its real.
This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use
