Don't get me wrong - I wouldn't really trade anything for my baby, but do you also go through these after having put on weight post pregnancy?
Don’t get me wrong – I wouldn’t really trade anything for my baby, but do you also go through these after having put on weight post pregnancy?
No body shaming here. This is #Justforlaughs. I have experienced each one of these at some point.
I have had my struggle with weight issues post pregnancy. Sometimes I made peace with it, sometimes I did win over it. But the confidence and experiences that I have gained after being a mother are priceless. I wouldn’t trade these for a slimmer version of myself.
Adding a dash of humor to our everyday issues makes it easier to tackle. So read on ladies – you will relate to this as well.
Should I go shopping and buy a larger size, or should I wait for another month thinking I should lose some and then go shopping and then buy a larger size?
Tremendous pressure on the phone camera for the perfect angle to capture your picture looking thinner, your hair in place and the perfect smile (not too many teeth). And then shortlisting out of the gazillion pictures to put up on social media.
Switching from vodka to mojito (not virgin) cause you can see some greens in your glass.
Convincing your daughter “I wasn’t snoring that sound was due to the eternal cold”.
Learning some reverse psychology like before people say “you have put on weight”. Tell them, “I have put on so much weight” and out of courtesy they would say “no you look perfectly fine”.
Going through an inner turmoil after having booked an uber. “I should have walked back home today but now I’ll be charged a cancellation fee.”
Constantly wondering whether blinking of eyelids and flipping your hair would count as a form of exercise.
Going through your old albums and finding the anorexic you and lamenting over it.
Dealing with the constant urge of posting a before and after collage on social media is the toughest.
Does it happen to you ladies?

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
A man doing a PhD is rebuked for not earning well. A woman on other hand is constantly questioned why she's doing a PhD when she should have been married and raising kids.
Indians have an almost fanatic obsession with the salutation Dr. Even a child who barely understands the world around, when asked “what you want to become later in life?” usually blurts out a teacher or a doctor, as these are the professionals we first encounter early on in our lives.
I too, was fascinated with the white coat fascination alongside with the Dr tag, right from childhood. However, I did not score the marks required for getting into medical college, and my dream landed on the ground with a thud, and I went in for a graduation in sciences.
My graduation and post-graduation were a roller coaster ride and a second post-graduation which I pursued since I wanted to get into the academic career brought with itself a new perspective towards life. That year I shone like the brightest star and became the most meritorious student of the campus. I cleared my Net exam much before the post-graduation results were declared, and became a sort of sensation in the university. One of my professors remarked, “So we see the next doctor in making now” when he congratulated me.
