  • Ladies, please don't judge yourself by how much you weigh. I weigh between 255 and 270 and have for over 20 years. I never pay attention to pounds. I go by the size I wear. I have went from a size 24 (almost a 26) to a size 18/20 jeans and a regular 16/18/20 top BUT I still weigh around 265 or so.

  • You can if you need answers from a specific group. I had gastric bypass 5 years ago - before that I weighed just more than you do now, and I'm still plus-sized. If I can help, I will :)

  • I guess only if your questions are affected by your weight. I think as mothers it doesn't matter how much we weigh we all go through similar problems. Even the stuff with weight I feel like I can still relate to. I worry about my weight on a daily basis.

  • I'm sorry, not plus sized, but a great idea would be to check out cafemom groups.. check out plus sized moms.. if they dont' have a group, it might be a great idea to create one yourself to share common questions and shopping tips, etc.

  • oh and i was raised by a big momma too she was 420 at one time but unhealthy 420 so everything i know including (when you start to show) came from her. and i didnt start to show till i was 5 months pregnant (some tiny girl told me that i would start to show at 15 weeks) no offense skinny girls but none of us are the same.

  • That would draw the right ones to you

  • Not a plus-sized mum but only address it as such if it affects your post. Also please know that very thin people have weight issues too and might be able to relate.
