Nathan, my nearly three year old, went to the ER yesterday because of his asthma. They needed to give him some steroids (at 4 o’clock in the MORNING!) and I didn’t know how much he weighed. So they carted him off and back. Anyway, he weighed right at 30 pounds. Now, I put my 31 left goal as 25 pounds. But 30 would be more accurate. Maybe more. I looked at my kid and thought – wow… that’s a lot of weight. At first I was discouraged a bit. Thirty pounds. My kid is heavy. If I have to carry him around the mall much, I’m feeling it. Then I realized how important it is to lose my kid – well, not literally, but the weight of my kid. Though some days he makes me wonder if losing him – okay, he’s two. I digress. I get tired lugging him around. How much more energy will I have when I’m not lugging around my OWN 30 pounds that I can’t just put down when I’m tired? So while I’m still frustrated at myself for getting back to this point, I realize that I need to do this. I *need* to.

    omg. I need to lose 73 lbs. Thats my 5yr. old plus 13lbs. I can barely pick him up! When you think about it that way, you wonder how could your body carry that much extra weight around all the time. Amazing.
