Adds Pounds

I copied this off of a friend’s facebook.
It portrays perfectly
how we let society influence
our sub-consciousness.
I’ve lost about 40 pounds in the past year
and I’ve been feeling pretty good about myself.
Not because I’m skinnier
but because I am healthier and stronger.
And then I got pregnant.
Happens every time.
It’s a good thing I don’t let society
tell me what to do.
Or I probably would have stopped a few kids ago
or at least at #4 when I was 36.
I miss you my bloggy friends.
I think I am going to start blogging more.
It seems to help me through pregnancy
and the newborn blues.

  1. Wow!I am so excited for you. Are you rooting for a boy or girl? I want another baby, but I have to get married first. :-)Going into the pregnancy 40lbs. lighter was an awesome feat!!! -Katrina Navarro

  2. Well… I haven't had a baby in 24 years… I still struggle with my weight. I know there are other life health issues. But I want to be healthier… so I am going to try to pull myself out of my depression and the mindset I am in that I am a total failure… and cannot win this battle.

  3. Dang! My baby is almost ten so it's hard to blame 60+ pounds on that. Good luck and we'd all love to have you blog your pregnancy. Or at least blog once a day 🙂

  4. Congratulations on the pregnancy and on all your hard work to be healthier. Hopefully it will make the pregnancy a little easier? Hope you're feeling well. Also, love the picture. I might have to steal that one too.
