There where a couple of times that I wanted to just sit down and cry or did go home a cry due to being embarrassed about my weight.
Anyways I have two times that I will never forget and it keeps me inspired to keep the weight off.
#1: Nolan was about 7 months old and I went home to see some old friends, left Nolan with my parents and went out with a couple of friends. I am from such a small town when you go out everyone and there moms are out. You can not go to Wal-Mart without seeing 3 people you know.
Let me remind you it was such a small town everyone including the people that I no longer keep in touch with new that I was pregnant and that I had a baby.
We were out and I was talking and making my rounds with people, when I came across not a mean guy but a really sweet guy from high school when he look down patted my belly and asked how far along I was now! :O What do you say to that?
I replied no he is 7 months old now and I mean this guys face turned red and could not stop saying he was sorry, which in a way made it 10 times worse. Yep I went home a cried... All my friends were just saying its ok Erica you just had a baby, ummm no I had a baby 7 months ago. It is not ok to still look pregnant that long after you have a baby, that is not baby weight anymore that is just over weight. In my opinion.
#2: This story is not as long but still so embarrassing. I was ready to get out of my maternity pants that I have been wearing for a good 4 months. So I walked into Express (where I got my last pare of pant form) I went up to the desk and asked the lady where I could get a size 12 long and she replied we do not sale that size anymore...
yep went home and cried how embarrassing, the store does not even sale your size!
Now these story's are just some of the things that I went through and they are not that bad compared to others. If you have a story that you feel like needs to be shared, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can post it for you, sometimes it is nice to know that you are not the only person that goes thorough things like that and help people understand that they need to think before they talk.
