So how did we do ladies? I lost 1 pound this week. Its funny how a person can mark time but what they weighed at such and such an event or time in their life. When my son was born weighing over 11 pounds I myself weighed 256. He was a hungry boy and I nursed him night and day. Between taking care of him and my toddler I didn't have time to care for myself properly. My weight plummeted to 211 by the time he was about 2 months old. After that it began to climb and it climbed for 7 years.
Fast forward to this past January. I weighed 252, almost my full term pregnancy weight. That's what scared me. This morning I saw 211 on the scale. I weigh on a doctors scale in our bathroom; one of those that you cant trick by standing one way or the other. The balances arent tricked. Now the last time I saw 211 my son was 2 months old. Today he's 7 and a half. This is the last weight I have in my memory bank to mark the milestones.
The next weight that I can precisely recall weighing was back in 1998. We went to Disney World. My daughter was 15 months old. I had gained 100 pounds trying to get pregnant through invitro with her. The hormones and subsequent pregnancy left me weighing exactly 256 the day I delivered her. By the time she was 15 months and we took that trip I was weighing 186. That was almost ten years ago.
Who knew that when my daughter was three I would again reach 256 through another pregnancy but this time I wouldnt lose it until 7 years later. Its a sad tale. So like I said before, this is is the lowest I have weighed in 7 years and Im happy.
256 is my top weight. I have never weighed more than that. My average adult weight has been 155 pounds most of my life. This time I started at 252 and am aiming for 150, just a hair under that weight.
