Belly Blog

As long as I can remember, I have had a big, fat belly. Even when I lost weight, I still had this ginormous belly poking out.

I have no ass. It's flat. Why can't I have a fat ass and a flat belly. I could live with that!

Last week I was in the store carrying a sleeping SJ. A lady made a comment about how nice it would be to sleep like that and then commented that she could see I have another one on the way. (This is not the first time this has happened to me, by the way.)

I said, "No, I just carry a lot of fat on my belly."

She said, "You're just teasing, right?"

"No," I said.

She was embarrassed and didn't know how to recover. I wasn't mad. I have a FAT belly. But people get truly flustered when they make this mistake.

Should I just lie and pretend that I'm about five months along? It would be less awkward.

Remember the maternity shirts that read, "I'm not fat. I'm pregnant."

I want a shirt that says, "I'm not pregnant. I'm fat." Size XXL, please.

Once in Miami I was standing on line at the supermarket. I guess I had my hand on one hip and my tummy sticking out. The cashier was like, "When are you due?" I was so irritated...

I know what you mean, though...I'd like to move all tummy weight to my boobs...TMI, but this is the TMI SPOT!!!!

Ohmigod, Carolyn, we must be related...I have had all kinds of people ask if I am pregnant "again" (with Jude, obviously not with James....I am insane but not so insane that I think i should be skinny two weeks after birth!)

I just carry my fat in the belly. Even when I was prime fighting weight and a size 8 (for someone 5'9" that's pretty good) I still had flabby belly. All the crunches and situps in the world cannot get rid of it. I might just follow my Perfect SIL's example and get a tummy tuck with all my disposable income : )

and we are still beautiful : )

Do you have a belly? I never noticed. I have the same belly but at 60 people realize that I am just fat. What do you want with a fat dierrier, I've got that too. Not so flattering I just look like a barrel. Just think of yourself as a tire that is only flat on one side. Bwaaahhhaaaa

I rigidly follow your advice on women that look pregnant, Babelbabe. I only assume a woman is pregnant if I see a baby actually emerging from her body.
