Here’s the story:
I go into Bruegger’s Bagels to order a Cinnamon Sugar bagel with cream cheese. As I’m waiting for my bagel, an older fella walks up to me and says, “Oh, so you have a little one on the way?” Caught completely off-guard, I look down at my tummy and respond, “Oh, I had one a few weeks ago.” He then points to his own tummy and asks, “Oh, so you still…,” before I decide to cut him off with, “Yeah, it’s still going down.” It was obvious he didn’t know what to say (although he should have apologized), and he asked whether I had a boy or a girl. I answered that I had had a girl. He congratulated me and then walked out the door. I just stood in awe for about 30secs when the cashier handed over my bagel. I quickly said, “Thanks,” and rushed out the door.
And just so this is clear to everyone, before this incident I was already quite aware of the small pouch (or so I thought) that sits where my waist used to be.
Also, I want to add that I forgive that man. I know he wasn’t trying to insult me. I’m sure he really did believe I was a few months pregnant. But for Pete’s sake, he could have apologized!
P.S. If I weren’t against littering, I’d have tossed the damn bagel out the car window!
P.P.S. And yes, I ate it.
I know, I know.
“where” are your posts?
Come on Tally were are your posts????
I definitely agree with Jennifer. And hey, you honestly look amazing after having a baby just a few short weeks ago. You are my sexy babe as always =D.
Connor is 15 months and I still have my pouch. Granted it has gone down quite a bit but I still feel fatish every once in awhile (like when I’m having a bad day). I was wearing a lot of baggy clothes that covered my belly but found myself giving excuses to others around me. I thought to myself, hey I had a baby and even though it takes no time to gain weight it takes a lot to lose it. I don’t have a personal trainer or the $$$ to go to a gym. I don’t have a lot of free time to do the kind of exercising I want so it’s slowing coming off. I plan to lose the weight but it will take some time and I need to remember that and not let anyone get under my skin. It’s hard to do in our society but we have to remember that we got this way bringing a life into this world and that is more important than anything else. We are beautiful in any shape or size.
