I think it's time to lose weight

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Tonight me and my boyfriend went to get pizza and the girl working at the pizza place was a girl that I used to work with. When we were ordering, she asked me if I was pregnant. I was like ummmm...nope just fat. She tried to cover it up by saying "oh, well everyone around here is pregnant, and I am trying."

I think it is time to lose some weight. I really am not that big, and I only weigh about 10 pounds more than when I used to work with her.

If you're only 10 pounds more than when she last saw you, that isn't bad.

But take if from me - if you have 10 pounds to lose, do it now, rather than wait until you have 60 to lose!

Yikes! I Guess it just depends on where you gain your weight.

I remember feeling bad for my SIL a few years ago. She had gained most of her weight in her belly, so my parents kept asking me if I thought she was pregnant. I kept telling them no she wasn't.

Just do a little at a time. I need to lose about 5-7 pounds to feel better. Not as easy as it seems.

I"m so sorry I know how bad it makes you feel about yourself.... I had two customers ask me that this year....

I am overweight, but I don't consider myself excessively so. I just keep all my excess weight in my midsection and hips, so it give that horrible appearance that I might be preg. (which isn't a horrible thing in itself, but it's horrible when you're NOT!)

I need to lose 20 lbs, but my goal is 30.

The whole thing has taught me (which I never would have anyway!), NEVER to ask someone if they are preg. if you don't know!!! Let them tell you if they are!

Hence why I don't ask when the baby's due until she's really poking out!

I believe the healthiest way is to lose a pound a week. That way it's gradual so your body weight won't swing back and forth, which makes it even harder to lose the pounds. Hey, you could do what I do and walk dogs at the shelter on the weekends! Now that is a workout!
You don't walk them, they walk you.

I feel for you! I had the same thing happen to me several years ago. I was embarassed, and I know the person who said it was too!

I recently had the same thing happen to me when I went to Cali for a visit. I decided to go see the gal who always did my nails and eyebrows and get a little touch up. One of the women in there ran up to me and immediately placed her hand on my tummy and was so excited. So I had to tell her that nope since I moved 7 month ago I packed on the lbs. Since then I've been very committed to the treadmill.

10 pounds isn't bad. This #@!* medicine I am on has put 20 pounds on me in three weeks! I have been going to the all you can eat pizza almost every day for those three weeks!

If it ever happens again, just say this,

"The only thing I'm expecting is an apology"

That ought to shut them up.

A-mazing. Love it.

I've been asked if I'm pregnant before...I'm 5' 4" and I weigh like 115 pounds, so it's not like I'm remotely chubby. I think it's those gosh-darm empire waisted cotton dresses that are popular...they could make Keira Knightley look pregnant!

I thought it was an unwritten rule that you don't say that to women under any circumstance..it is not worth risking the embarrasment of both parties involved.

Yeah. Even the tops are like that but those things are super comfy for me whenever I feel insecure about my body.

If if makes you feel any better...a few months ago, I was in line at the pizza place, which is staffed by ethnic Italians. A pretty young lady, NOT 1 ounce of fat on her, was wearing one of those peasant-type blouses that are popular--the ones with the Empire waist. The guy behind the counter, trying to make conversation in broken English (I honestly think he just arrived here, and perhaps those tops are not popular in Italy), asked her, "Boy or girl?" She stammered, "Neither!" I think he just assumed it was a maternity top! She certainly didn't look pregnant to me.

And, when I weighed 80lbs more than I do now, many years ago, I took full advantage of a empire-waisted summer dress I had. There's a mall across the street from my job; I often go there for lunch. Well, it's hard to cross, because of the traffic. After I wore that dress a few times, I realized that folks stopped to let me cross--which they seldom did when I wore anything else. Then it dawned on me--with my belly at the time, if I stood a certain way, I must've looked preggers! Well, I started pooching out the old gut even more when I stood there, put my hands on my lower back, like heavily-pregnant ladies do, when their backs hurt. Worked like a charm! And, it was a hoot to start waddling, THEN break into a run, like a gazelle--must have annoyed the poop out of them!

If it isn't it should be. What an embarrassing situation. It's not worth risking, just wait it out, if the person is really pregnant thier probably going to tell you anyway.
