Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity

I have always been really insecure with my body, weight, and the way I look. I haven't felt good about my body since....well I'm not sure I've ever really felt good about it. I have memories as early as the 3rd grade of me wishing I was skinnier. This picture is super unflattering, but I'll let myself slide just a little due to the fact that it was taken when I was 36 weeks pregnant. It's been really hard for me watching the number on the scale go up and up every appointment. I know you have to gain weight when your pregnant, and it's helped having a little bit of an excuse, but I also know that I am not going to be one of those lucky girls that is back into her normal jeans the week after. I read somewhere that most people don't really gain any weight the last few weeks. I've been going on walks every day, and eating normal, so I figured the scale would at least stay the same, if not go down. How the heck did I gain 5 pounds in six days? That's just depressing! I'm hoping some of it is just water weight...or something that will go away quickly. Once this baby is out, I'm no longer going to have an excuse and I will have a lot of work to do. Fabulous.


  1. Hey Bobbi, just to let you know I have always thought of you as one of my most beautiful people I know. I am so excited for you that you only have a few weeks left!

  2. You look great, as always! I don't know anyone that was back into their normal jeans the week after. It took me about 3-4 weeks to "fit" into them, but I still wasn't comfortable in them. You just rest up after that baby is born. Then, after your 6-8 week period you're free. Just take it easy. Having a baby is no easy work. :) I couldn't believe how exhausted I was just going to the store for 30 minutes after I had Claire. It completely wiped me out. It's exciting though to have the realization that you won't have to wear those dreaded maternity pants for that much longer! I definitely don't miss those! Anyway, you always look great! :)

  3. I agree with Lizzie. You are one of the prettiest girls I know. Through all the years I have known you, I have never thought otherwise. Don't be too hard on yourself. You are terrific.
