Don't be a moron


Just don't be a moron. Don't be an idiot. Don't ask a woman how far along she is unless you're dead sure she's pregnant.

If you've been following my blog for a long time, you may recall the last time I was mistaken as pregnant. That was nearly a year ago, and when I weighed 30 pounds more then I currently do. I was actually somewhat forgiving because I could admit that I actually sort of looked pregnant.





Since I'm not going to post a picture of myself in a bathing suit, here's one of me in my new tri top and shorts. Pretty darn form fitting.
Now, I'm not an idiot. I know I'm still overweight, and I need to lose some more. But pregnant looking?

Just for the hell of it, here's a "belly shot":

I'm not entirely thrilled with where I am, but surely, surely, even if somebody thinks I might look pregnant, there would be enough doubt in their mind that they wouldn't ask. Right? Surely, I don't look pregnant enough that you would be enough of a dumb ass to ask how far along I am?

For the hell of it, here's my before picture:
NEVER refer to a woman's pregnancy unless you KNOW she is pregnant.

That is all.


  1. OMG, I can't believe someone was that stupid!! You have come so far and you look absolutely TERRIFIC!!! Don't let some idiot get you down. Seriously, you have done an amazing job and you are fitter, healthier, and happier.

  2. That person needs a head slap. You don't look the least bit pregnant. You look fantastic.

    I hope you have a fabulous tri. I'll be cheering you on from afar.


  3. You look Fantastic!!!!! I don't know what that person was thinking. There is no pregnant belly going on there. Girl don't waste any more time thinking about this, you are strong, healthy and about to kick some serious butt!

  4. Oh!! I agree!! People are so dumb! I'm still not talking with a neighbor who asked me that a couple years ago. I gained like 10 pounds on what was then a pretty scrawny body and I actually looked pretty normal and a good way ;-)
    (at least I thought so) and she had the nerve to ask me if I was pregnant. I was SO MAD! I'll probably never forgive her.

  5. Holy cats, you look amazing!

    And yes. That question should be outlawed, forever.

  6. Some people should just never open their mouths! You look pretty darn amazing and I would have back-handed that person if I was in your position!

    So what did you say to him/her?

  7. Hi Deb, I started following your blog just recently, since you are also starting Tri's like I am (I am doing Christina Lake Sprint end of this month) :) Let me say, from someone who's known you since baby #2 was expected, YOU LOOK FANTASTIC!!!!! Don't let idiots ruin how far you've come. I am so proud of you!

  8. Deb, you look AWESOME. And definitely NOT pregnant! You should have said "Yes, I'm gestating some kick ass quads that are going to help my fly through a tri! BOO YA!" People are morons.
