I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!

This website definitely hhas all the info I needed about this subject and didn't know who to ask.

I am pregnant with my third kid now, and this has been the hardest pregnancy to watch the number go up. Because I worked so so very hard to get so very skinny after baby #2, when I briefly considered being done having kids before changing my mind, somehow shang-hai'ing my hubby into wanting another baby...and well, here I sit in elastic waistband pants! Again. For some reason women get so hung up on that silly number. Those stupid jeans and that damn scale. My husband doesn't care if the pants he buys are a 36 waist or a 40. Just as long as they're comfy and look good. I wish we could be as comfortable in our bodies!

Ugh! So true. I recently had to go shopping because I was down to a single pair of jeans in my entire closet. So I took the kid and my dad (to keep the kid entertained) and went shopping. Halfway through the horror of not fitting ANYTHING I grabbed I stomped back out to the rack muttering (very loudly) about how it sucks to be a woman and to have hips and a butt and why do they have vanity sizing. Meanwhile my dad was staring at me as if I grew a second head and every woman in the store was nodding along sympathetically.

This is so so true. I especially dread going to stores where sizes run small...the effect is amplified!

I was in my car today thinking- It's ok. I'm never going to be a 4 or a 2 ever again. I will never be 114 or 117, which I was when I got married. I've had three kids and gained a ton of muscle. So while I was super small a decade ago I couldn't lift for shit or run at all. I think the size I am now is going to be my sticking point.

I couldn't agree more. I used to be active and underweight. Once I stopped playing sports, I gained 20+ pounds and am now at a healthy weight. I was so consumed with the number or letter that was in my clothing and I was not happy. It took me a while, but I got used to the fact I wasn't my super skinny old self and I am okay with that. I am now finding womens clothes that are a bit bigger than I wish but I am okay with that. The clothes look good on me and help give me the confidence I need. That's what women should worry about. Finding the right size clothes that they feel confident in, not clothes they have to stop eating for a week to fit into.

Thank you for this. I need to remember this.

I am glad that you posted this b/c being tall like you and always needing a bigger size quite frankly makes me feel BAD.

Just like pageviews - I also feel like everyone lies about their true size, so thanks.

In your humor, I find comfort :)

I was all set to get indignant but I'm sitting here wearing THREE pony tails because I was imitating a TRICERATOP dinosaur for my nephew and I stuck tampons up my nose earlier in the day to pretend I was a walrus.

So.

You're right about the penises and you're right about me.

Dammit.

I know, Kim W. I gave away a bunch of jeans that were my faves after kid 3 and I dropped all that weight. I'd still love to drop a good 5-7lbs, but I don't see a 6 in my future. I like food too much.

You know what is really really really bothering me lately? The fact that I still have size 4 and size 6 clothes in a box, just waiting for me to get back down to size. That's the size I wore after two kids. I'm pregnant and due in a month with my fourth. I'm going to give those clothes away *before* I have the baby. No more of this "when I get back down to size after the baby" stuff.

Oh, don't feel like a smacked ass, Julie. I'd still be pretty excited if I fit into a 2. Though I'd probably be collapsed on the ground from not eating. Ha.

And yes, a BFF-ish + new underwear, always a pick me up.

Now I feel like a smacked ass for telling you I bought a size 2 skirt. Anybody who's seen me knows I'm no size 2.

I need to take your smart advice. Better yet, I need a BFF-ish and some new underwear.

Wait....you mean I can't just grab what I think might fit me off the rack at Target, buy it without trying it on, and think, "good enough" when I get them home?

Wow. I'm doing it wrong, then, huh?

Wait, you shop for penises? I'm doing this all wrong.

And, yeah, I was getting really down on myself for going up a size and then realized it makes not one hot damn of difference. Plus, sizes for women are all over the place, so it's even less useful to care about the number on the clothing labels.

(My husband has used the Nordstrom personal shoppers and LOVES them. And he's only a little bit metrosexual).

looooooove this. If my division chief weren't my friend on facebook, I would absolutely post (with credit to you, of course) your last sentence.

Should anyone tell Erin that our feet spread during pregnancy and no, those cute boots might not fit? I went up a half size with each kid. Decided to only have two kids! (shoe size as birth control?)

There is shifting, too, Erin, after the babies, so keep that happy revelation in mind.

And Alyssa -- I know, I kinda want to slap them too.

My new life motto "So stop shopping for clothes like penises, ladies, because size doesn't matter."

Seriously! This couldn't be more true. And while I am hoping and praying that I can squeeze into some of the clothes from my pre-pregnancy wardrobe, I won't be too disappointed if I need to buy some larger. At least my cute boots still fit, right?

Thank you for this. Times a hundred. Seriously. It took me forever to realize that I'd rather look nice in something that actually fits, regardless of the number on the tag, than look like crap in something I squeezed my ass into because I "had to be a size __". And can I just say, when friends post pics of themselves on FB saying "look at me in my new size 4 jeans" I kinda want to slap them.
