COLIN MADE FOOTBALL WEIGHT!!!!

CAN I TELL YOU HOW PROUD I AM OF THIS KID....

He worked so so so so hard and HE did it!! He needed to be less than 90.9 lbs and he weighed in at 90.4 lbs! He watched what he ate...no sweets, soda, or carbs, he swam laps every night in the pool as well as had football practice every night too!!!

So now what happens....he will get weighed before every game and they will give him 7 lbs for his pads as well as 1.5lbs for growth! So if we keep up and maintain what we have been doing for the last 2 weeks...it is a win win situation!!! We are healthy and Colin plays football!

Thanks for all of the well wishes and prayers; they are greatly appreciated!

Outstanding!! Good job, Colin and mom. Enjoy another season of football.

Thanks for dropping by and enjoying some of my posts this week.

I cannot use my teeth to do anything but eat. It hurts if I try to bite things and I'm afraid I'll break them. I'm loosing them fast enough.

Did you or do you chew ice too? I was a big ice chewer.

Be careful with your pearly whites.

More later.
