Re: Weight gain & self-esteem
I'm self conscious about it too. I grew up as the chunky one in the family. I finally slimmed down about 4 years ago when I joined the Air Force. Then I got into a car accident and haven't really been able to do upper body exercises. I had shoulder surgery in March and that made working out even more difficult. Now I'm almost 8 weeks pregnant and feel like the more I eat the fatter I feel. I don't like it but my husband says that I'm not fat and it doesn't look like I've gained anything. I've gained almost 10 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. I know it's all in my head I just don't know how to get over it. Especially after one of my co-workers has already called me fat since I can't button my normal work pants. To me it looks like I'm already showing a little bit...but that could just be me and wishful thinking! Alix
