Ok, so for anyone that has read my recently updated SparkPage you already know that I have recently given birth to my beautiful little girl, Lylianah Elysse.
She was born April 27th @ 3:12am, weighing in at 6 lbs 11 1/4 oz and 20 1/2" long. I was only in labor for 2 hours and 12 minutes (tops) and her delivery was actually pretty easy when I look back at it. I did however prove to all the doctors in the hospital and my OB/GYN that when I tell you what's happening with MY body, you should probably listen because I can tell you with almost 99.9% accuracy how things are going to go.
When I brought Lyli home, she only weighed 6 lbs 6 oz. So she dropped 4.9% of her weight in the hospital, which I was told is average.
But enough about my little angel!
The true reason behind this blog is that she is my best motivation to get back to taking care of me so that I can be around to take care of her.
I did decide while pregnant that once Lyli arrived I was going to do my darnedest to get down to a healthy weight so that I can be around for her, and as an added bonus, so I can be a MILF...hahaha! OK, so the bonus is that every man that has ever rejected me because of my weight will eat their words/decision when I get done! But as I said, that is not my true motivation. Lyli is!
I do not want my daughter to have to grow up taking care of her mommy because she couldn't do it herself. There are too many health concerns that run in my family and I am going to do my best to avoid them so that I can watch my daughter grow into a beautiful woman and hopefully live to see grandchildren and possibly great grandchildren in the VERY distant future.
So, while I was supposed to start this past Monday o 6/14, I have a reason for the delay and that delay is no longer needed.
So....time to take care of me!
