Without futher ado, let's get down to the winners!
The GRAND PRIZE winner is....... MEG!
Meg had an harrowing story to tell, and almost didn't have a tomorrow to start her healthy lifestyle. In case you missed it, here was her entry.
Okay, here is my story...
My beautiful son was born on June 18, 2010 after a low risk, uneventful pregnancy. I was a little anemic, but other than that, it was a healthy pregnancy. I was 40 weeks, 5 days when I was induced. The labor was long a tough, and after he was out, I did not stop bleeding. I had 5 blood clots in my uterus preventing it from contracting back down. I lost a LOT of blood. I had a terrible headache we all thought was tension headache from labor, and a bruise 6 inches wide wrapped around my shoulders like a scarf. It was not an easy delivery. My son had to be in the NICU for 5 days, and on the day we were supposed to take him home, my headache was so bad it took me to the ER. Within 5 hours at the ER, my lungs had completely filled with fluid. I was drowning. Because I lost so much blood and I was anemic before that, no one could tell that I had preeclampsia. My blood pressure was dangerously high. I was dying. I spent the next 3 days in the ICU, completely unaware of my surroundings and away from my brand new baby who had to go home without me. However, I made it! And I'm healthy now! No high blood pressure! My son and I are completely attached to one another and I have a new way of looking at life. I realized that I need to love myself completely and give myself the chance to do things I really want to do, to have that little black sexy dress, to be who I really want to be. The time is now, not in the future, not someday... I almost didn't have a someday.. That is what has inspired me to become healthier this past year.
