In response to a poof...

I think most women will agree that 15 lbs is stupid. Nothing to freak out over.

Picture proof?

Here is my husband a few months before I met him sailing. His head is not weird, that is the wind or something. But, goofy looking.

Just off the bus from his second deployment.

Still my goofy husband, but now you can see his face.

Ugh, the blurriness. But him in dress blues.

Look, he gained weight and I still got pregnant.we actually tried which meant we had lots of sex. I was 5 months along here.

Closer up just after my daughter was born.

And here he is just before he got his job at a clinic here in town after his last therapy session was finished.

You have to admit that he gained a lot of weight between this photo-

Land this one I took before he tried to throw his twins into the lake. And we even (gasp) had a ton of sex and a second child is proof.

NOT everyone is shallow. I dated a man I first thought looked like a dork because he did things like braided his sisters hair when they were in kindergarten and loaned his mom money to make sure they were okay. I stayed in love because he put his kids first whenever he was home, and got excited about pirates of the Caribbean with me, and so on.

15 lbs is nothing. No adult would be pissed at 15 lbs.

Oh, and his twins are his sisters. I shorten that a lot since they live next door and are the usual sitters and pretty much go with us anytime we go somewhere cool. It is easier to call my mom and say, "the twins are coming" than "Jenny and Kianna are coming." 3 fewer syllables.

Quoting Goodybag1: Ok but girl who cares about your sex life besides you?

It is all in response to a whole nother post that poofed while I tried to find the photos. Not sure if the original post poofed, but a woman on here was upset because her husband gained 15 lbs. and she proceeded to say that if people in the marriage wanted to keep having sex, they needed to stay the same. When I told her my husband gained over 50 lbs and we still did the deed because I am not shallow, she called me a liar. I am not telling you how often or how we do it. Just that we do.

Lol. Does that mean he failed at dunking them in the water?

Nice pics, BTw.

Yes, they ran as soon as I lowered the camera. He chased them but it was more of a hobble. He was still doing the therapy on his knee then.

and thanks. I know some are blurry.

Yeah, I talk a lot. But this is actually more photos than text for once. I just added a bit at the end.

Did you really need that many pictures to prove he's gained weight?
