Being formally a chunky girl, i was finally happy with myself, after having lost and maintained 25 lbs weight loss for 2 years. BUt, then I got pregant, and I quit smoking, and I quit taking adderall, and then, MY THYROID quit. So, that 25 lbs has already came back, full force. So, trust me when I say, I feel ya!!!
Luckily for me, i've always had chicken legs and usually gain all my weight in chest and belly anyway, now everyone just says, WOW you look really pregnant for 3 mos. ahha
I think the trick is, to embrace the chunk. Just tell yourself, NO MATTER HOW BIG I GET, I'M GONNA BE CUTE!!! I've vowed not to retreat to the frumpy,no makeup wearing, husband old tshirt and sweatpants attire of pregnancy. I'm buying plenty of clothes on EBAY for reallllllyyy cheap and I'm doing different things to my hair(different styles) and trying out different make ups. It really does make you feel better, I promise.
( I'm also blessed with a great Husband, who tells me everyday, how beautiful I am. And, he gets excited the bigger I get, because that is HIS baby in there. : } )
