Mensagem:  Eu perdi a conta de quantas vezes já me casei.
I have lost count could be used, but I think that, depending on the context "I have even lost count of the number of times I have married" OR "I have already lost count of..." would be better. 
It adds a certain "humour" flavour to it. Humour can be a double-edge, though.
