I know that I am overweight, there is no denying that I need to shed a few pounds.
Here is the thing though, as you know, I am 8 weeks pregnant with my fourth child.
Usually, I am OK with my “fluffiness” but right now, it just makes me feel really self conscious.
If you have had more than one child, you know that you start showing earlier.
But when you are overweight and pregnant you don’t get that cute little pouch or the slightly bloated look as other women seem to get… your fat seems to be pushed up into a permanent muffin top that is there whatever you wear, even if you are wearing nothing. I can’t get away from it and whatever I wear can’t hide it…
I just can’t wait to start looking pregnant instead of just fat… the worst of it is that I have even lost about 7 lbs since I found out…
Petty complaint but it feels good to voice it….
It’s certainly not petty, especially if it helps to say it. I’m looking forward to when you’re feeling like you look pregnant so you might be willing to share some photos… maybe some with that cool bike?
You know I just did a post today on body image and fat talk. It is so hard to accept our bodies some times. I bet you’re beautiful and just can’t see it!
