Over the course of 1 1/2 years since moving in with Mr. Joe, I’ve slowly been gaining some weight. Not too much, but about 5 pounds or so to put me at 125. I’ve also softened up, if you know what I mean lol It’s a result of having my own money to spend on food, and, being in NYC, I’m surrounded by good food everywhere! I don’t have to “fight” my three siblings for the junk food anymore either, so basically I just have more food (but to be fair, a lot of it has been better quality as well). I’ve softened up also because Mr. Joe does all the heavy lifting and stuff for me, so yeah. A perfect combination for weight gain lol So I went home to visit family for Christmas and we had a big family gathering like usual. I last saw them in May for the wedding so it had been awhile, but I haven’t really gained much weight between then and now, just a pound or two maybe. Well, before my Grandma left, she told me that I looked really good. It was kind of an odd comment at the time. The way she said it made it seem like she expected me to look bad for some reason and was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t lol I kind of just let it go and said thanks but I was talking to my mom just now and she said my grandma told her that I looked very healthy, like I gained weight, and happy. I’m just hoping she doesn’t think I’m pregnant or something and doesn’t want to say anything! Makes me laugh a bit though. I’m definitely much happier now though, so maybe that’s why I look different (plus, last time when they saw me I was in my wedding dress with a corset back that totally sucked everything in and made my waist look tiny).
