“How much do you weigh?” is a question most men know better than to ask a woman, unless he’s her doctor.
I’ve never been all that open about my weight because at my height, I’ve generally weighed significantly more than most of my friends. I mean, 110lbs just will never be a reasonable weight for me. Even for my height, I’m probably heavier than average, though.
Ok, so I’m going to be brave and tell you my stats so that I can have some real accountability, soon… But before I do, I just want to recap: I’m not looking to be waif thin. I want the clothes I already own to fit me better, I want more energy to keep up with my kids, and I want a body that stands the test of time.
Jeanette said it well in her comment on yesterday’s post, “I by no means want to be a toothpick, I think a curves are what make a woman sexy! so I just want to be fit, and tone up my body!” Exactly.
It’s my responsibility, as Mommy to Dylan and Wyatt, to take care of myself. If I don’t take care of myself, I let my family down by not giving them my best. I’m also not helping to show them what it looks like to live a healthy lifestyle if I eat junk and sit in front of the TV.
Ok, so the stats:
- Weight: 172lbs :/
- Waist: 33″
- Hips: 42″
- Bust: 40″
I’m not exactly sure what my measurement goals are, but I’d like to fit into my size 8 stuff again. I think my ideal weight is 150lbs.
So there you have it, brutal honesty as promised.
This week, I gained two pounds because I forgot to adjust my points for non-exclusive nursing. I also made it to the gym THREE times, so I may be building back some muscle as well.
How was your week?
