Motivation anyone?

While at church today, I had a lady come up to me and ask me if I was having a boy or girl.

Ouch.

It turns out, she knew I had been pregnant, but didn't know if I had the baby or not, and she was wanting to give me some clothes if I had a boy.

Still.....

Some other zingers I've gotten since I HAVEN'T been pregnant:

"You look so good! What month are you in?"
"Why are you still waddling?"

Seriously people? At least this latest offence had a purpose, and when she noticed her faux paux she apologized, and had the decency to appear like she actually was sorry. (I think I felt worse for her! How horrible she must have felt!)

So anyway, what a huge slap in the face of motivation I have received! Expect to see a new me in the future! A less-pregnant looking me that is.....unless of course I become pregnant again. But that shouldn't be for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG while my friends!

Most of the time people mean well, but seriously!!!! they need to process their thoughts internally before speaking them. Maybe your motivation will help me get motivated. :)

I say this with 100% honesty: I saw you just 2 weeks ago, and you DID NOT look pregnant...at all! Really. So there...but in my experience any motivation to get me excersizing is good motivation, even if it's not true :)

I was going to make a joke and say something like "I thought it looked like you were expecting quadruplets", but realized that would be in poor taste. So instead, I'll simply say: since when did you have a baby? I know, that's not funny either.
