A Tipping Point
July 28th, 2010
I’m going to share something very personal and very hard for me. Deep breath. Okay. I am poised on the brink of weighing 200 pounds.
Wince. Shudder. Gulp.
I know I’m pregnant and that weight gain is inevitable. And I’m a tall person so I carry a decent amount of poundage under normal circumstances. But let me tell you, there is something really really emotionally difficult for me about weighing 200 pounds, even when there’s a good reason for it.
The heart of the problem right now is that I never lost all my Mouse baby weight. So even though I have gained less weight with this pregnancy, I’ll probably end up weighing more in the end because I started off at a higher number.
And it hurts. Oh it hurts.
