Ok, so I just want to state that it really takes guts (and a desperate need for accountability) for someone to post their weight on a public blog.
But since I am really READY to lose all this extra weight - I decided this was a good a place as any to let people know how things are going.
Just a bit of history: I have almost always been overweight - a chubby kid, to say the least. I was this weight when I married. I always return to about this weight after each pregnancy.
I have not had weight-related health issues (yet). No high bp, no diabetes (even while pg), no hurting knees, back, joints, etc. I don't have trouble playing with my kids, getting up and down off the floor, or doing any other physical activities. It seems I'm quite strong and the doctor's charts have always said "healthy, obese female" (kind of an oxymoron, no?). But I'm smart enough to know what's coming....
I also am dealing with the recent conviction that this is gluttony. This is *not* a measely 10 extra lbs. This is not the testimony I want people to see. And this *is* what people first notice about me. Sure, there's lots more to me than my weight - but hey, it's human nature - it's the first thing people notice.
So there ya go. I'm done. I'm tired of it.
I will be updating my ticker at least once a week, on Tuesdays. I've been doing this for four weeks now. I've lost 30 lbs and I feel great!! Who knows if my goal weight is feasible or reasonable? I've never been that low. How exciting!!
~So be kind, okay?~
