The Dreaded Question.....

....I received the dreaded question the other day at Wal-Mart. I was standing at the counter getting something to eat and there was this lady(someone whom I knew) beside me and I could tell she kept looking at me, but I was talking to the person behind the counter so when I got done and turned to tell her hi and she asked the dreaded question.....Are you having another baby? I said excuse me and I could see the look on her face change, knowing that she had just stuck her foot in her mouth, so she asked it again since I didn't quite understand what she asked, I guess I just wanted to make sure I heard her correctly. I proceeded to tell her that I wasn't and she apologized. I wanted to say "No I'm not pregnant, I'm just fat thanks for reminding me how much weight I've gained lately". I know it wasn't intentionally, but I sure didn't need to be reminded of how big I have gotten. I guess I have probably gained 20-251bs since the wreck. Dustin found me an elliptical and I have to say I have not used it as much as I thought I would, but I'm trying to get started back on it because I have never been this big except for the time that I was pregnant and I'm not liking it at all. Anywho I just thought I would share this funny little story with y'all.

Well.... your child pinched my belly roll when I was bent over her chair at church the other day and said "Your gettin' fat Drea..." lol..... let me know when you find a good way to loose it all in 2 days because that is as long as my diets last :)-

At least people still ask the two of you if you are prego...people just look at this fat chick and say Lord have mercy Lacey is having another baby..??..her baby is only 8 months old...LOL...and I agree with Drea...you are not fat at all

Don't feel bad Melissa...u do not look like your expecting! I will say in your defense (because it is mine as well) that when you go through stressful situations gaining weight tends to happen because you are not able to take care of yourself. You eat when you can what you can. I tell Michael all the time that we are LIVING proof of the trials that we have been though because of how big we are..lol You are beautiful; Michaela and I have always thought so! Luv ya!!

Girl, I know exactly how u feel - that happened to me at church one time and the bad thing; it was my Aunt that ask me! I just looked at her in disbelief too. I just tell people now; "I've got a whole lot of money invested in this figure, what makes u think I want to put it all to waste....!!!" btw; if I was ur size I'd flaunt what I had. LOL

I was so mad but I just politely said no then he tried to cover it up by it was my glowing face... yea right he meant my round cheeks that I will never get rid of!!!! oh yea where did you find the eliptical?? I want one so bad! I love them.. my work has some that I use occasionally

First - you do not look Prego. 2nd - that is the one thing you do not EVER ask a woman unless you know without a shadow of a doubt that they ARE expecting. 3rd - in response to Tara's comment on here, round cheeks you will never get rid of? Who else wants to pound this skinny girl with me!!!!
