On body image issues.

Specifically, mine.I've had the same body type all my life. I've fluctuated from where I am now -20 to +10. No matter what, I will never, ever lose my belly. All the women in my family (mom, sisters and cousin included) have it. Thanks, Grandma!Due to the feedback from you guys, I picked out an outfit that I haven't been able to wear in a while and it fits great (pants are a little lose - I'll be taking them to the tailor). You guys gave me what someone needs, model discomfirming evidence of a false notion from trused peers.But also know....the other day I had a particularly large lunch. I was looking for some CWs and when I found them I didn't realize I was rubbing my tummy. I noticed them looking and said, "I ate my weight in Thai food. This is my food baby."The Ogre said, and this is a for realsio quote, "You scared me, I thought you were pregnant for a minute." Yes, the lady with the front butt said I look pregnant. So I also have this to deal with and it doesn't help. This isn't the first time someone has asked if I am pregnant. For the record, to my knowledge, I have never been pregnant.

    I think it was the rubbing of the tummy, not the actual tummy. Pregnant women rub their bellys all the time around here.

    Quite honestly, MinM, i think you could do with putting on about 10lbs. But that's just me. Your "belly" is really not there. That little curve gives you a feminine softness rather than a "gut" - which I know you think you have.

    Hooks - Can I hit you up after lunch, or you can call me after work? Whatever is better for you, cheddar.

    They're probably asking for the same reason people ask me: you're young and married. I don't think it's sizeism you're encountering - it's sexism. And don't knock front butts. If it weren't for front butt, I'd have no butt at all. ;)

    I don't think she was saying you looked pregnant. She thought it because of rubbing your tummy, there's a big difference. You honestly have no tummy!!!

    BMom - One of male CW has put a hex on me getting preggo. This AM, when I came in and wasn't feeling well, he brought me some ice and put my ginger ale in the fridge. I said if I get preggo b/c of his curse, I'm going to be the biggest AW and PITA to him about it. I'm not going to lift a darn finger. "Oh, you need me to print out my hours....ah, in this condition I can't possibly find the print button! Can you be a dear and bring it to me over here on my fainting couch and I'll initial it."

    All the women in my family have the pouch on the lower stomach, below the belly button. All of us. I've been asked if I'm pregnant before but that's because I'm chubs mcgee. Don't worry about it, she was just saying that because you were rubbing your belly. You don't look pregnant at all.
