|Henry Robert Carter (5 Months Old)|
November 7, 2012
9 pounds even 21 3/4 inches long
We are getting ready for Mattie to be a flower girl in not one but two weddings in November. November is going to be crazy busy. We have 5 family birthdays (two of which are my children) and two weddings (one being my brother) Other than that just everyday life and all sorts of fun that comes with having two sweet children.
The main reason I started my blog again....
I have been convicted lately about weight loss, well not so much weight loss as much as being healthy. I recently joined Weight Watchers on-line and I am seeing results but I wanted an extra something to hold me accountable. So I figured what better way than to put it out there for all to see. Let me start by saying I don't have all the answers but I do know that if you put out more than you put in you should be able to lose weight. Well that is what I thought, I tried very hard this summer and lost a grand total of 5 pounds. I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) when I was 21 and other than a couple of symptoms I really hadn't had a lot or trouble, that was until after one, Henry Carter was born. Let's just say a lot of things happened after Henry was born and losing weight became ever harder. I went and saw my doctor and was horrified at the number on the scale and after a very honest conversation with my doctor he suggested metformin, a drug used for people who are diabetic, but also insulin resistant like myself. I am writing and telling you this simply because I want to help and be helped. Whether it is a woman trying hard to get pregnant or a woman struggling to lose weight I want to tell you what has worked and what hasn't worked for this girl with PCOS. Please pray for me as I go on this journey that I will number one find time to workout and number two take the time to eat healthy. I know, with the Lord's help I can do. Thanks for your time and any suggestions or help you could give I would greatly appreciate.
