I have struggled with my weight since I turned 17 years old. I found how one day my size 8 jeans were tight on me and I didn't know how or when it happened. I decided that day on my way to 12th grade that I needed to lose some weight before graduation. I started to exercise and eat less and lost the weight. Graduation now over I decided to go to work instead of going to college and I joined the workforce as a clerk for Morgan Stanley. I suddenly started gaining weight and getting headaches. My menstrual cycle was non existent and the doctor couldn't figure out what was wrong with me I was 19. An MRI showed a tumor covering my pituitary gland and surgery was scheduled to remove it. I the girl with the curvaceous Puerto Rican body who never wore anything but a size 8 was now size 16. Surgery went well, the doctor told me that I was going to have problems having a baby. In 1997 I married my Junior High School friend. Two months later I started to feel sick and I was petrified that the tumor was back. i went in for some blood work and 3 days later my brother who works at the lab I went to called me to tell me that I was 1 week pregnant. Me? are you sure? YES, you are and I am going to be an uncle! That was 8 years ago and I have a beautiful daughter. My miracle baby!
