A Little Weigh In

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.
