I'm not pregnant, I'm just fat.

It doesn't help a person's self esteem much when their MIL informs them that people have been asking when you are due. Especially when you have had the last two months I have. First off I gained 12 pounds in one month, went to the doctor, found out my thyroid had stopped working and I have diabetes. Had to go on meds and begin to count cabs like crazy. Then there was the hormonal depression and anxiety that comes from said problems. Then the next month I lost 9 pounds. So now I get to add to that that I am not just fat like I thought I was, I am fat enough that people think I am having a baby! Oh vey! That just bites. I guess I better increase those sit ups and push ups. And until and if I ever stop being the fatter of the two pigs just remember, I am not pregnant, I'm just fat! (Thank Heavens, I don't think I could throw another kid into my messed up equation right now).

I soooooooo don't get how anybody could mistake you for pregnant. You have a great figure!! I'm constantly amazed that people don't ask if I'm due any day. I carry my weight in my tummy and I hate it! Joseph told me one time that I looked pregnant and I was like, "Yep, I know I do. But I promise I'm not."

You DON'T look pregnant! I can't imagine anyone even thinking that! I think you are beautiful, and doing such a great job of keeping it all together during some difficult health times. Please let me know if you need anything!

Type I or II? Chad was recently diagnosed with late onset of Type I. At some point he will be insulin dependent. Not fun...but as a family, we are eating healthier!

It is type 2, I too am eating healthier. I am lucky it can be controlled by diet. Both my mom and my grandfather have it. My mom controls hers with diet. My grandfather ate whatever he wanted be he walked everywhere and live to be 80.

I'm guilty of asking someone before if they were pregnant,and they weren't! Never again! I'm still trying to get my foot out of my mouth from that one.

You Do NOT look pregnant! Who would have come up with that? I'd probably fall apart with all the things you're handling right now! Hang in there, Chin up :)

I am sorry to hear about your health problems. Those are no fun. Sounds like you're getting in the groove of the lifestyle change. Keep up the good work!!! (Even though I haven't seen you for a long time, I can't imagine you looking prego but not being prego-you are so cute!)

Oh my goodness... I love and miss you. I am so sorry to hear that you have been sick. I too have been having Thyroid problems... NO FUN! I love to check up on you with your awsome Blog.
I do have some great information on a Health program my Aunt with Diabetes uses that also worked for my mom (she lost about 50 pounds and has kept it off) I don't want to be all sales-y but let me know if you would like more info and I can send it to you or have my friend call you.
Loves your crazy friend from a former life,
Amanda
