Thank you so much for sharing! Congratulations! I just started my weight loss goal, I am on the third day and this day is proving to be a difficult one. But then I read your story and I realized that I really can do this. You went through surgery, had to heal, and STILL reached your goal! That inspires me so much! I cant wait for the day i can post in this forum saying "I DID IT!". Thank you again!

What an incredible story-- and yes, I cried too.
I know that you will be blessed with a baby at some point-- I hope it's soon!

I also went through infertility-- and now I have two daughters that are 21 and 17. After two miscarriages and almost losing my daughter (I miscarried her twin), the doctor still didn't know why. After my last child was born, my endometriosis was finally discovered--- it was in the lining of my uterus which is what likely caused the miscarriages and the contractions I experienced the entire time during my succesful pregnancies. Infertility may now be far behind us, but the painful memories are still there.

2018 workout goals:

150 Bikram yoga classes

400 workouts minimum

So far:

32 bikram yoga classes
200 workouts total

What is the news on IVF front..one good nes is when you get pregnant you will not have glucose problem. Keep your workout under proper guidence after you get pregnanat. You will have definately a healthy, intelligent and hardworking child like it's MOM.

I honestly can't thank all of you enough for your kindness and your very, very generous words. I am truly touched by them. I looked at this Goal forum so many times when I first began, and it was so motivating and inspiring for me to see all the amazing stories of success - and it is such an enormous honor that my experience could make someone else feel the same way. But here's what I have learned after 14 months on this forum: we ALL have amazing stories, no matter where we are in our weight loss journeys, and we are ALL incredibly strong. It takes so much strength just to start (I know, because I never thought I had enough strength to start at all), and great determination to continue day after day. I am proud of every single person here who begins this battle and keeps up the fight, whether just at the start of their journey and facing what feels like a long road, or at maintenance and determined to stay there. I am proud of all those who fall and slip but get back up and keep going or start again. It can be HARD at times, but we are worth all the work and effort; we all deserve the very best we can give to ourselves.

To the many of you who commented on my attempts to conceive and desire to become a mother - thank you. We have gone through two rounds of IVF (one fresh cycle and one frozen embryo cycle), and both were unsuccessful. Some days I handle it better than others, but it is another fight that I am unwilling to give up - I will keep going until we are out of options, and we're nowhere close to that yet. We'll be starting another frozen embryo cycle later this month, and I am hopeful.
