I am always having to tell everyone how much Boaz or Lorelei weighs. Strangers ask.
Today I am not writing about them. Shocking, I know.
I have not been able to exercise for over a year per dr orders. I have been able to do the exercises from physical therapy and that is all. So my only course of action to control or lose weight is through my diet. I promise I will write more about that later.
Now here is the number part. When I met Chris I was 119 lbs. When I went on birth control and got married I gained 30 lbs. 30! And a tumor that had to be removed via surgery. Then when I did 3 months of Clomid I gained 30 more lbs. And another tumor that also had to be removed.
I was 182 when I got pregnant with Lorelei. I gained 20 lbs. which put me at 202! I never thought I would be over 200 lbs in my life!
When I got pregnant with Boaz I was 172. I gained 32 lbs for a total weight of 204. Boaz will be 4 months in two days and I am happy to announce that I was 162.5 this am.
While not weight obsessed, weight does matter. I am healthier and feel better when I am in my ideal weight range. Around 150. Not 119! I also want to honor the Lord with how I take care of my body. Which is what has lead to my decrease in my diet coke/coffee intake. Which I will write about on another day.
