| || | 2/21 I don't know why, but lately I've been thinking about Luna's size compared to mine and how well she will be able to carry me. Her original owner is quite a bit bigger than me and she is the one who saddle broke her... She's probably 5' 7 and weighs about 188ish. Maybe more. I'm only 5'1 and weigh about 155-160 (Not plus sized at all. I wear a size 8-10). I would like to weigh 115-120. Luna is about 14.1-14.2. I think I started thinking about it because I have a doctor's appointment on thursday and they will have my test results back. I have hypothyroidism (hence the extra weight on me) and I lost a little bit of weight when they put me on meds (a few years ago) but they stopped working a while ago, so I gained the weight back plus some. Now understand this. I only eat 1500-1800 calories a day. Sometimes less. I am an active person, going to the barn everyday and all that. But my hormones are seriously screwed up. Always have been. One of the things they tested for is Polycystic ovary syndrome, which I think I probably have. They also tested my glucose and a whole bunch of other things (they took 10 tubes of blood and I got 5 needles stuck in my arms). I'm not going to tell you my whole life story and all about my various ailments (that would take years, ha ha) but that is just a little about me and what's going on right now.
Anyway, I think it will be fine. I've always been a worrier once everything starts going well for me (I always think I'll to screw it up). I have a very (very) blurry picture of me on her and I look about the right size. I also have a very light seat, so I'm not going to be flopping around on her back all day. Once she gains more muscle she'll be bigger and stronger.
That's all for now...
