I've worked HARD for every pound!

So I went to the "female" doctor yesterday for my annual check up. And I mean, honestly, is it REALLY that bad people? It takes 20 seconds, if that. It doesn't hurt. But why do we dread it for the remaining 364 days that follow? I would like to know when they will ever make a plus sized paper gown! Because I ripped mine yesterday just putting it on before the doctor ever came in the room. Nice! When that nurse told me to "wrap it around me" I just had to laugh quite frankly. Because I knew that thing wasn't going to go around me! But I do want to share my experience on....THE SCALE! Now, I am NOT a skinny woman. I've never been a skinny woman. I will never be a skinny woman. And I'm really okay with all of that. I was born wearing at least a size 14. I have come to grips with the fact that I am a beautiful woman, no matter what the number of the scale says. So yesterday at the doctor, when I stepped on that scale, I was actually quite shocked to see that I weighed the EXACT SAME as I did on my wedding day! That was a little over 7 years and 2 babies ago! Now, for a skinny person, that would be total bragging rights. For a fat girl, it's more like, "You haven't managed to lose not one pound in 7 years??!!!" Well, I've lost a few pounds here and there, but they always manage to find me. So ladies, I've come to grips with my weight and the fact that it really hasn't changed in 7 years. And I'd just like to say, I've worked HARD to keep every single pound!

I think for every women being the same size as you were on your wedding day, especially after having two beautiful babies is an great accomplishiment!!! Go girl!! I however was my smallest ever at my wedding day..cuz of work stress and just plain being in love, not because I was actually trying...even smaller than when I was in middle school.

Praise God, my sweet hubby loves me even more than that day so long ago...maybe its because there is so much more of me to love, ha, ha!

You have a healthy perspective and I admire it. I struggle with my size, no matter what the scale says. I was nearly sick with dread of going to the doctor this week because I knew I'd have to stand on the scale.

I think you're gorgeous and have the best hair EVER. Your blog about your hair is one of my very favorites.
