Told the truth. I started at 105lbs and when I was at my biggest I was 125lbs. Gaining weight while pregnant is a fact of life, theres no reason to lie or be embarrassed about it.

I don't know if I would have if I had a normal pregnancy. But I had twins so my weight was a little crazy!! I went from 110 pounds to 200 pounds!!!! It was the worst!!! But I actually enjoyed telling people because of the shock on their face heehe.

I was 142 before my son and ended 192. Exactly 50 lbs. 30 of which are still on my body. How lovely.

If people asked I usually told them, I didnt really care. When I started out I was 150 and ended up at 207!! I am now back down to 150 again thankfully

I told the truth, I gained 27 pounds with my son and 25 pounds with my daughter. The 25 pounds came off, but not that first 27 pounds ugh time to work out!

i never lied about how much weight i gained. like 45 pounds, but i did lie about how much i actually weighed. if i was only 120 pounds, then i probably wouldn't but starting out at 180 - i didn't want everyone to know.

I told the truth. Why lie about it? I had the perfect excuse for gaining so much weight!

I gained 44 pounds while pregnant. My son is 14 months old, I've lost all the baby weight plus an additional 16 pounds--and still working on losing more! Yay (just thought I'd throw that in there....lol)

I lost 18 lbs while I was pregnant, so I didn't really have the inclination to lie about it.  I don't think I would have though, had I been gaining the whole time.  My mom and my sister both gained 70lbs when they were pregnant (and both were very thin to start out) so I had a lot to live up to anyway  ;)

You are teeny tiny! I agree tho, there isn't a reason to lie/be embarrassed.

I tell the truth...to lie implies that A. I'm ashamed (which I am not) and B. I care enough about others opinions to bother formulating and retaining a lie in the precious little brain space left to me by four children and a constanlty lost but loving hubby (which I don't) lol....

I find no matter how painful, annoying or uncomfortable the truth may be- it is infinitely easier and wiser in the long run in many, if not most situations for all involved....jmo...

*and I gain a ton of weight when I'm pregnant- I try to eat right, but am guilty of the occasional cupcake binge and I make no excuses for it- I like chocolate, sue me....lol....
