I never cared about numbers before, but then, I never had my Wii Fit tell me I was overweight before. It's not really about numbers anyway, but about how I feel. And I feel overweight.
First, before I get to today's numbers, a little history.
In 1999, when I entered college, I weighed 110.
In 2006, when I married my husband, it was 120.
And in 2008, right before I found out I was pregnant with Bjorn, I weighed 130.
20 pounds, one decade. Let's hope that trend doesn't continue.
So, starting weight for my pregnancy was 130. Ending weight: (are you ready for this??) 181. Yup, that's right folks. I gained 51 pounds during my pregnancy!!!! I would blame it on Bjorn, but I really think it was the french fries and three avocados a day that really did me in.
I started tracking my numbers on July 6 - one month after Bjorn was born.
July 6: Weight - 159. Chest - 41. Waist - 37. Hips - 42.
October 20: Weight - 144. Chest - 39. Waist- 35. Hips - 39.
And for the final weigh-in. . . . . .
January 11: Weight - 146. Chest - 38. Waist - 36. Hips - 40. (Yes, that's right. I went UP in everything but chest. Unacceptable.)
So, there you go. For all the world wide web to see, those are my numbers. My goal weight is my wedding weight - 120. (But my ideal weight is 112. Yes, I know that sounds ridiculously low, but let's face it folks, I'm barely 5 foot 2. And the 8 pound difference between goal and ideal shows alot on a five foot body.)
But, then again, even though I have an ideal and a goal weight, it's mainly about how I feel. How my clothes feel. How comfortable and happy and confident I am. It's not really about the numbers on the scale. (And if you believe that, I have some ocean front property in Arizona I'd like to sell you. . . . . . . )
