Dear Doctor: Take Your Lecture and Stuff It

Off to a routine OB visit today, and while I usually do step on the scale with a good dose of trepidation, today will be different. Today holds the potential to break the ‘ideal weight’ range.

A friend put it well:

“You’re beautiful. Let it go.”

I fucking love her.

And if the doctor spends too much time dwelling on ‘healthy weight gain’, I’ll simply show her this:

And yes, I do believe I will have seconds at Thanksgiving this year.
