Today Kate told me I have an eating disorder. I find that amusing because I eat a bagel sandwich a day and probably a pint of ice cream a week. In fact I want both and some pickles right now.

It’s more about how I view my changing body and how my mind resembles the mind of someone afflicted with a disorder. Yes I am almost 30 weeks pregnant, and despite the fact that the scale hasn’t changed in weeks, I feel enormous!

So far I’ve gained much less than I did with my first pregnancy and actually I’m still close to what I weighed when I even started that pregnancy.

I confess that this is probably my fourth or fifth attempt at a blog. I don’t know what exactly prevents me from maintaining them after a few posts. There’s a big risk in putting yourself out there and the self-doubts can come rolling in.

This time I am going to ignore those thoughts, or just roll with them. When I started this blog, I signed up with Blogher’s NaBloPoMo, making a commitment to writing one post every day during the month of March. I’ve never done anything like this and I’ll be honest, I’m scared. But I made a promise to myself that I would do this and I really hope that I do! The theme this month is “Risk” and so, here I am taking the risk and putting myself out there in the blogosphere!

Please be gentle.
