I think my 👖 size went up again. I’m sad.

In the big scheme of things, it’s not a big deal. But it feels like one right now.

    1. Thank you, Jo! Love your wording: “what does up can come down.” Yes, it can! I’m trying to shift my focus to better health than weight number and jean size. I have gained so much after both kids, that any number increase gives me heart palpitations.

  1. I understand that. My scale broke last summer and so was without until last weekend of April. I bought a new one and when we got home stepped on it. Nigh on had a heart attack until it was pointed out to me that weight is really just a number and it has to do with how healthy you look. I admit that I am at what is considered a normal weight for my height and I have been at this weight a year after giving birth to T. But it was different then. Now it is muscle as I am far healthier. So remember weight is just a number. What did people do way back when there were no scales????

    1. Being healthy is more important than a weight number! I refuse to get on a scale. It gives me a heart attack too and demotivates me. I’ve been eating more salads and been more active with the kids, but when the nurse checked my weight last month, no change. I was sure it would’ve gone down, at least a pound. 🙂 lol
      That’s great you are healthy and have gained muscles! Health is way more important.
      Thanks for the encouragement and support!

  2. I have struggled this past year with work/life/parenting balance and my health has definitely been a lower priority. I agree that size doesn’t indicate our value as people but I struggle to accept this version of myself.

    1. Thank you Cindy! I’m feeling better about it today. I decided to get new jeans that is one size larger. The solution is simple but the process of getting there was hard. Better to be comfortable than miserable, right?! How a number can get me down like that.
      I like your wording: “don’t be down with the ups!”
