Since you've had to be a step-parent, deal w/ blended families, and the stress of what comes w/ it all, have you found that you've gained or lost weight? or...have you stayed the same?

I've gained, for sure.

I lost weight. I get upset, and I refuse to eat. Except, now I'm pregnant, so, I gained a good part of the weight back. And I can't refuse to eat when I get upset now.

I've gained but not from stress - but because Dh is a chef. Homemade veal ravioli last night with molten lava chocolate cake for dessert.

Not really. I try not to let the stress of it all eat away at me. When I first went through my divorce, I did lose some weight and then gained some. It was a cycle and I kept going up and down.

With Will & Clayton, I always knew they would end up in our home and so it wasn't a real shock to my system when they came in 2009. And actually since they live here, I've been forced to cook better and have actually lost some weight.

Gained. I was never able to lose the last 20lbs of my pregnancy weight and with all the stress I managed to put myself back past my highest pregnancy weight.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤
