picture paragraph – “my weight gain”

“Picture Paragraph.”

You take a picture and write a paragraph (or two) telling us a little more about it. What was going on that day, your thoughts behind the picture, why you bought that (hideous) shirt you’re wearing, etc. It gives the author a chance to ramble and the reader a chance to get to love the rambler a little bit more. They say a picture is worth a thousand words – I’ll try a paragraph. Here goes.


Like any good sister, I recently begged Katy if we could borrow her Wii – duration undetermined.  And like any good sister, she said yes, but that she’d want it back.  It’s been FOUR years since I stepped foot on that Wii Fit board.  FOUR years that have seen four pregnancies (two lost) and more than a few weight fluctuations.  I was a little reluctant to get on the board because I haven’t known my weight in a very long time.  But I got on.  And the Wii board welcomed me back.  And then told me I’d gained 19.2 pounds since my last check-in.

Weight gain used to freak me out.  Defining my mood, how the day would go, whether I felt sexy, what (and WHETHER) I could eat that day.  But yesterday, I just laughed and moved on with my play time (AND beat ALL of my previous records..and most of Travis’.).

To simply brush off a gain?!?!

Yes, I’m pregnant and I know that I’m supposed to be heavier.  Even so, I feel so different these past few years in regards to my body and numbers.

Like I’ve finally grown up.

19.2 pounds-and-four years grown up.
