Well, my blog is all about being brutally true to myself, so I gotta write about it all.
We were just at dinner at my in-laws' place. My two little nephews were over (aged 5 and 3). The five year old ran up to me when I walked in the door, and gave me a giant bear-hug. And then he asked, "Why is your tummy so big?".
I honestly felt my heart crack a little. My eyes welled up with tears so fast, I just didn't know what to say. How do I begin to answer that question to a five year old when I can't even explain it to myself?
Needless to say, I'm embarassed beyond belief. There's only one way outta this - and that's to do something about it. Onwards and upwards, as they say.
