Weighty Issue Quiz – guessing closed

In 2010 I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy and also became the not-so-proud owner of an extra 40 pounds.  This is the year I’ve decided to get rid of 30 of those pounds.  It’s too hard for me to be the mother I want to be with the extra weight.  I’ve lost 10 pounds so far and can fit back into one old pair of jeans, only 10 or so more pairs to go 😉  I’ve been too skinny and I’ve been obese (according to those stupid BMI people) and I’m shooting for somewhere in the middle.  It’s not vanity but a health thing – Gage needs me around for a long while and I need to quit stress eating at the drive-thru.

Let’s see if you can match these fictinoal characters who have all struggled with their weight or body images issues and the books you find their stories in.

    I’m a little late for the quiz, and I don’t know any of the answers anyway 🙂 but just wanted to leave you an encouraging word about your weight-loss efforts. I waited until the second beautiful 9.5 lb. baby I delivered was in college before I decided to get rid of the excess. It’s a long process and it takes work and commitment – but kudos to you for doing it now while Gage is young. If I can be of support in any way – just ask.
