My Weight

I am normally not very serious on my blog but today I am going to be. I was not even going to put this on here but after thinking about it over the weekend, this has been bothering me and I just have to get it out.

On Friday afternoon when I was leaving the building here at work I was walking past someone and they proceeded to put their hand on my stomach and say I looked like I was expecting a child. I wanted to break down crying but I did not want the person to see that they upset me. NOW normally I joke and say it is food baby and I forget about it. But this time it struck a cord..you see how I say this time. I was wearing capris with a top that was stretchy and I may have not been sucking in my stomach,hey we can't do that all the time. 

This has happened more this once. I have had a few people over the past few years say something about my stomach. When I gain weight/carry my weight it is in my stomach. I have a baby pooch if that is what you call it and I think I look damn good for my self but I guess others think I look like I am about to start getting a baby bump. 



Do I look super huge? Nope..but some people feel the need to ask if I am pregnant and feel the need to put their hands on my stomach. I warn everyone right now...NEVER EVER PUT YOUR HANDS ON ANYONE'S STOMACH. EVER. If you do not know if someone if pregnant..do not ask. I also believe that pregnant women do not like it as well..so stop doing this. This gives non-pregnant women complexes and pregnant women hate it. 

Just remember the next time, if someone looks like they are gaining weight in only one area they may not be having a baby. Have some respect and do not ask that question!

  1. I had a sales person ask if I was expecting this weekend. It really made me want to burn the shirt I had on...can't say I will wear it again!

  5. First of all, you do not look pregnant AT ALL. Have these people never seen an actual pregnant woman? Second of all, I can't believe how incredibly rude people can be and I'm sorry you had to deal with a dumbass. I hope you don't sweat it, you look great to me! Next time put your hand on their forehead and say 'you look like you're missing your brain'

  9. You don't look pregnant at all, and I'm in the same boat as you, I always gain weight in my belly. My mom says it's because I've always slept on my side since I was a toddler and that the skin stretches out. Whatever! :)

    PS, I'm totally jealous of your boobs, can you share some??? ;)

  10. I can't even believe there's people out there who think that kind of behavior is ok. You do NOT look pregnant at all, and I hope that jerk comment doesn't bring you down =)

  11. What in the hell?! I would have punched that person. You seriously don't look pregnant! I had that happen to me once when a guy asked me when I was due & I told him to f off & learn some damn manners. Best part, I was super skinny at the time. Geez dudez

  12. why do folks do that? i usually try to be pretty nice to folks that i am talking to, but come on, what are folks thinking by saying that or anything so unkind??! RUDE!!

    i say if you are happy with you, you feel good, healthy, you are happy & all that jazz - you keep your head held high & keep loving life!! i know i have changed since i was young so i have to remind myself that i have to see myself in my new age of life - stop looking at what i use to be. i wonder if it is a women thing that we look so critically at ourselves. why do we do that?

  13. Are you serious?! Did you know this person? That is not OK... EVER. I would have had a hard time not punching this person in the face. Some people have no manners whatsoever.

  15. I would have ripped that person's hand off!! How dare they touch you? That's crazy. And it's so incredibly rude to comment on anyone's body, especially if you don't know them. I think you look great, seriously!
