Why being a 'Weight Loss Blogger' sucks. Sometimes.


When I originally started blogging it was to kill time and talk about cute little baby Madison. {Yes, that’s her real name} One day I talked about how I was getting into running or trying to jog at least, and my slow success at Weight Watchers and things just kinda went from there. Weight loss and working out became a bigger part of my life and I started sharing more about it. Now I would say it’s the main focus of my writing although I’m still just a girl who was tired of being heavy.



Blogging has done a lot for me, but first and foremost it has kept me motivated. Maybe if I didn’t have you guys to keep me accountable I would have slowly fallen off the wagon, but it’s also more than that, it’s the relationships I’ve made and the people I’ve meet. It may seem weird to some to make friends online, but for me it works. It’s easier to find people with the same interests online than it is randomly chatting up people you meet in real life and as an adult making friends can be hard. Even for someone who has no problem walking up to random strangers and starting conversations, just ask my husband :)

As I’ve come to learn with the good comes the bad. I’ve come to terms with the trash talking that can be done; some call it snarking, whatever it is, it still hurts. The way I deal with that is avoidance, I just don’t read it.


There is another pressure that comes with blogging, especially about your weight, expectations. Readers {not all of you this is a general statement which I will clarify in a moment} expect certain things from me. I talked on Facebook about why I don’t post a lot about what I eat, almost every time I do I get comments about it ‘not being clean’ or being ‘fake food’.  I'm not here to teach you how to eat, I'm just here sharing my life and how I do things.



I put a lot of pressure on myself to keep it up. It being my fitness, my weight, and the way I look. I try really hard to ‘keep it real’, I won’t lie it was hard to come on here and post that I had gained 12 pounds already.  I feel like I'm failing some invisible test that I'm giving myself. Sometimes I look at a picture and think ‘I don’t want to post that! Look how huge my thighs are!’ but I do because this is my real life and I know I look like a real women. To all of you though I'm also a weight loss blogger and I don't know if I'm living up to that title.

I feel a lot of pressure to have a perfect pregnancy, to gain the recommended amount of weight, to look a certain way. I put that pressure on myself, but regardless I’m feeling slightly blue about it all right now. This is an entirely different experience than the last time, some of that is due to how much of my life I share online. I feel judged, probably because I AM being judged by all of you. It’s human nature, especially for women.



I guess I just needed to get this off my chest, if I talk about it maybe it will have less power over me.  Life is all about learning to bake that cake, clean up the mess, and eat it too. Or something like that.

  1. I have been quietly following you for quite some time now and wholeheartedly, there is no judgment. I don't think anyone can you judge you, until they walk a mile in your shoes.

    You have a loving husband, a beautiful little girl and another on the way. Be proud of your accomplishments (your workouts are hella hard woman! love it!) and know for every hater that posts a comment, there is another silent blogger like myself, who thinks you are amazeballs. :)

  2. I feel like I could have written the part about how hard it is to make friends. My husband is in the military and we move every 3 years. Like you said, I can easily walk up to people and strike up conversations (something my husband and kids tease me about a lot) but that's not the same as having real friends.

    Please give yourself some slack. Who cares if you gain 40 lbs this pregnancy? 1- you're human! and 2- I have no doubt in my mind that you will take it back off. I used to joke that the one thing I loved about being pregnant was that it was the only time I wasn't on a diet. Which is true but in a bad way. I let my eating and lack of exercise get out of control. I gained a healthy 33 lbs with my first pregnancy, 50 lbs with my 2nd, and 40 lbs with my 3rd. I'm not proud of that, but I did it and now I'm paying for it. But, I'm not the only that has gained a lot of weight during pregnancy and I won't be the last.

    We look to you for inspiration because you show us that we can be healthy and fit too! Sometimes looking in the mirror and/or at the scale- it seems so hopeless. But, you give us hope. And although my baby making days are over, you give hope and inspiration that it is possible to be healthy and active during pregnancy. There are some of your gym pictures that I'm jealous I can't do those not pregnant and you're pregnant doing them!

    If we ever get transferred to Texas, I'd love to be your real life friend! Have a great day Skinny Meg! =)

  3. Megan,

    Thanks for sharing. I love your posts and how real you are. I think it's sad that we as women don't build each other up more. I think it's our OWN fault for the way women are perceived in the world sometimes. We expect so much. I think you look terrific and the ONLY thing that maters is how you feel and how that baby inside you feels. I honestly think only 12 lbs is amazing. Just think about how you did last time! You have to keep positive and think about how much healthier you are for this baby and for your kids this time around. They have an amazing role model in you, and that is something to be SO proud of.

    You are also a role model for me. As a young 20 something, I am trying to lose weight for the first/20th time. :) I want to make sure I am healthy before kids, and watching you do it is a great motivator.

    Remember that no one is perfect, and no one should expect you to be either. Sorry this is the longest comment ever.

    Thanks for always sharing your life with us! :)

  4. Your post made me a bit sad too. Skinny Meg, you're an awesome and determined woman who will have a healthy pregnancy no matter if you gain 15 lbs. or 40 lbs. Then afterwards you will lose the weight again because you want to. You inspire me everyday and make me want to do better, even when you don't "eat clean". Feel better and you are beautiful inside and out.

  6. Just keep being you. It's what attracted me to you long before you shed the weight and I'm sure others would say the same. Everybody's journey is different. Your's just took an incredible detour and you tried damn hard for it so enjoy it. Don't let what someone behind a computer screen may say make or break you. You are stronger than that! And remember, you started off smaller this time and were having a rough first few weeks. You ate what you could and if it wasn't the best, so be it. You are real. Keep it that way!

  7. Personally, I think you are just wonderful. There are always going to be critics no matter what you do. Even if you didn't blog it for the world to see, people face to face are critics, they just don't have a computer to hide behind. I think your honesty and story is AMAZING. Every part of it, the ups and the downs. I commend you for having such a fit pregnancy thus far, there are a lot of people who do not have that willpower, but don't be so hard on yourself. If you want a blueberry waffle with cream cheese and syrup, eat the waffle and enjoy :) Much love to ya!

  8. Thank you for sharing. It breaks my heart that people "snark" or leave judgmental comments. I hope you realize that for a majority of us, we aren't looking for perfection. It is nice to see someone that allows herself to have what appears to be a delicious looking breakfast because that is real life! I will never be able to eat 100% clean or paleo or anything, so to see that someone else can be successful while still enjoying all the "good" stuff in moderation, is helpful! As far as being prego, I have never been, but I do know there is no such thing as a perfect pregnancy. Like everything in life, it depends. You may be gaining more than you originally thought you would, but you are still at the gym and being healthy, and that is all that matters!

  9. I think your awesome! I love that you keep it real and I think you look amazing. :) Don't be so hard on yourself.

  10. Girl. I hear you. This is the downside to the internet. You want to share, you do, but when you do, then you're held to insane standards. I think you're motivational and inspiring :) Especially when you get your pregnant tush to the gym, I mean, beyonddddd impressed. You rock.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think you are doing great. The fact that you still make it to the gym most of the time and ran what, 12 miles this past weekend is pretty freaking amazing in my eyes. Love your blog and I would keep reading if you stopped talking about weight loss altogether! Keep your head up.

  12. THank you for sharing this ~ I think you are amazing whether you gain 12 lbs or 70 lbs :) You are a rockstar and a happy healthy you and baby are whats important! I don't get why people have to be snarky and judgemental. Hope their lives are perfect. Be true to you - I love your writing style - I love that you lost all that weight and that you can show that you aren't perfect but you are pretty damn awesome! Please don't let this get you down and don't leave the bloggy world! You are my first read of the morning! And you have inspired me so much :)

  13. You are amazing with amazing thighs. Your message is perfect. Let us find the motivation we are seeking and not you seeking to prove something to us. Keep it just as real as you always have. We don't matter. Twilight Sparkle, the Hubs, and God matter. And Peanut-yes I have nicknamed your belly. Hashtag creep. LOL !! Post your amazing curves, your delish breakfast, and W.O.W. It is your story and "failures" that motivate others. XOXO

  14. You have do to what makes YOU and YOUR family happy. At the end of the day it is about how happy YOU are with YOUR life. Are you happy with yourself and your life? If you are then great and if you aren't maybe you should take a hold of what you put on this blog if others opinions are hurting you that bad......it's not worth it or just DELETE.

    You are creating a life and if you gain more than 25 pounds SO? the only person that has to deal with it honestly is you, and you already have the tools to lose it after the baby is born. Be happy, enjoy your life, enjoy your pregnancy because seriously....those that mind DON'T MATTER and those that MATTER DON'T MIND :) Stay happy love!!!

  15. Love this! I think what you do is fantastic and you are just a real person. Anyone who judges you, really needs to just stay away. I've been following you for a while, we were trying for a while and i'm now 13 weeks as well! So I'm right there with you! I gained 68 lbs with my daughter (now 7) and I'm praying i don't gain as much this time because I started out heavier this time around.
    Whatever happens, I won't stress it and I hope you don't either because you've waited so long for this and in the end, the weight will come off. Right now, just enjoy this time of being Pregnant!
    XOXOXO
    Keep being you!

    PS: What is your due date???

  16. When I first started blogging, I wanted to become a "weight loss blogger" but I realized that it wasn't for me. I just wanted to run and live life!
    It's a shame that some readers are giving snarky comments about you and what you eat and how much you work out with a baby growing inside of you. You are doing YOU! You are AWESOME!!! Please don't change. Those haters can go kiss a cow. You rock and you are doing what is best for you and not sugar coating it!
    You are a real woman and I think more people relate to that than you know!

  17. You are truly an inspiration to many many women. I read your posts daily (and look forward to reading them). I am sorry that people feel the need to be rude and criticize you. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life (nobody does). Just always remember that you are inspiring women and changing theirs lives with your stories and positive attitude. Those of us who are inspired by you appreciate all you put out there for us. So I want to THANK TOU for all you do. Keep up the great work Skinny Meg!

  18. That's 110% why I LOVE to read your blog. It's real life. You help make me feel like a normal woman. I appreciate it enough for myself and at least 2 trash talkers. I'm sure most of your readers feel that way, so your fans definitely outweigh (no pun intended)the haters that can't appreciate your willingness to put it out there.

  19. Don't be so hard on yourself; you (all by yourself) are growing a tiny miracle! Enjoy your pregnancy. You have lost the weight before and you will be able to again after the baby is here!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I enjoy seeing that others that have lost a lot of weight are real people just like me. I don't eat perfect not even close and it's nice to see that you don't either. I feel like a failure because I don't "eat clean" and then I see a picture of that amazing breakfast and I know that I'm going to be ok I just have to keep trucking!! So thanks for being real :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. It makes me sad that you feel that way, and sad that some women are mean and say horrible things and judge other women. We should all be lifting each other up. No one is perfect and shouldn't be expected to be.

    I think you look amazing and I also think it would be really boring if you could never treat yourself! You are eating mostly healthy and working out to stay healthy for your little one and Madison and that's what's most important.

    I haven't had to deal with criticism like you and Brandi have, but I think its because I haven't had the amount of success that you both have with weight loss and my blog isn't as main stream. I know its hard to ignore the rude/mean comments, but I am glad you are trying to. Know that for every mean/rude comment there is at least a dozen women who are inspired by your story and how you are living a healthy lifestyle who are reading quietly! :)

  22. Oh girl! I've followed you for a while now and have never left a comment but I just love you and your blog! Try not to let others negativity get you down. I enjoy reading your blog every day because it makes me happy and that isn't going to change, whether you're eating kale or a Big Mac. ♥

  23. It must be very tough having people you don't even know love AND judge you! The best thing to be is honest, and you are! Have a wonderful pregnancy for you and your baby... not you and your readers! we love you either way!!! xoxo

  24. I love when bloggers share bits and peices of their life- of course I live your weightloss stuff but I like hearing stories about Madison and seeing all your thrifty finds and decorations .. someone will always hate you, but there are more that love you :)

  25. Alright, how do y'all say this again? I super pink fluffy heart love this!? Anyway, I love this entry and you! I have the priviledge of being pregnant 'with' you and I'm thrilled to have you as a role model during THIS pregnancy. When I found out I was pregnant my sis in law immediately said, 'You get to be pregnant with Skinny Meg!' I swiped my 'fat passes' (if you will) during my last 2 pregnancies and am determined to be more cautious this time. However, my body has a great memory and is alllll for my belly jumping RIGHT out and gaining 60 lbs again. It is a fight to stay healthy and maintain some sanity around these parts!

    Bottom line--I feel you sister. I like that you are honest. And I swear I won't judge you. I'm excited to have you as a 'fit mom' to model during this pregnancy. It is nice to know I'm not alone in the struggle to 'not gain weight, but gain weight since I'm supposed to because I'm pregnant', especially since I'm a girl who worked SO HARD to lose weight! Proud of you!

  26. You are amazing! I love that you are a real woman telling us about your real life. Keep up the great work. You are AWESOME!!

  27. hugs! just ENJOY this pregnancy and all that comes along with it.

    Keep up the good work, you are doing awesome. I read an interesting article when I was preggo that often your first pregnancy sets the stage for weight gain in other pregnancies. So you could do it all right this time and still end up gaining as much weight as you did last time. Its just your body doing its thing and making sure baby is happy and healthy. Don't worry!

  28. I think you're a TOTAL inspiration! You're pregnant and you still manage to get out of bed soo early in the morning and get to the gym. I find that incredibly awesome. I have the hardest time getting out of bed with no baby in my tummy! I think you're doing a fantastic job of living your life and sharing it with all of us. Your blog is one of my alltime favs! Thank you for sharing and being soo honest! Cheer up buttercup! You're da bomb!

  29. Meg please don't feel like you're being judged by everyone... sure there are some out there that live to just trash people and you can't change them. But for the rest of us, the part that we connect with you on is that you're REAL... you're not fake, you don't pretend to be something you're not... real people are happy for your success and don't criticize your choices, your meals, your weight gain, etc. Sadly, it's just that the negative ones are the loudest ones, that's all. Chin up, buttercup! xo

  31. I think you look astounding!!! Don't let your weight gain get you down. After you have your bundle of joy you're gonna rock that shit and have that post baby body to prove it! Keep your chin up lady! You got this!

  32. I think you are doing a great job! For those that want to judge and be rude, it only shows how they visualize their own lives. It is okay to splurge and have a little fun in life, so eat some junk food ignore the mean people and have a blast being pregnant! I personally love every post you do and have never thought you were doing anything "wrong". Yeah we could all eat a little more "green" or "clean" but we don't, oh well life goes on! Right?? When I blog, I always worry how people will view my photos too, most are of my house...which is not always clean! But you know what, I am not blogging for those people, I am blogging for me! It helps me with wanting to keep up with all the stress a stay at home mom has, and its not all fun and games! Its your blog, do what you feel is right, and if people do not like it, its just as easy to un-follow as it was to follow! Keep at it Megan, I am sure there are way more people that enjoy your posts then there are that want to nit pick everything you do! :)

  33. Oh my gosh, honey. This absolutely breaks my heart that, after trying for so long, you aren't able to enjoy this incredible time. It's so easy from my side of things, to tell you to let it go. Try to let it go. Some people need to just remain a name. No power. No influence. No matter. The ones who love you REALLY love you.

    Do whatever it is that you need to do to put yourself first in all of this. You are growing human life. If we were to look at our own lives, we'd realize just how effed up we all are. At least I am.

    Sending you so much love.

  34. I think you're great! Ppl only judge because they are jealous. I am struggling personally bc I do workout and eat healthy but I have always just weighed alot. Ugh!! Oh well im preggers now and trying to just embrace it! Eat that cake if u want girl. :)

  35. Love ya Meg! Feed 'em fish. Delete and/or block those Bs--no one wants to read their negative crap anyway. You're doing awesome, and that 12 pounds is no. big. deal. You're growing a kickass little baby that's going to pop out doing burpees.

  39. Meg you are an inspiration to so many women. I know you are one to me. I love that I can come on here almost every day and know that I'll have a story to read that will touch me in some way. And you know what, if it doesn't touch someone in a certain way EVERY time, so what? You can't please everyone. What you really need to focus on is pleasing yourself, pleasing Madison, and pleasing Oliver. Soon you will have another bundle of joy to please and your life won't be perfect, but it will be yours and I know you will make it the best life for everyone. You have done so much for a lot of people, just with your words alone and I can't even imagine how you impact people face to face. You rock, lady! Please keep a smile on that face. Much love!

  44. I'm sorry you feel this way. Hopefully you keep blogging because it's something that you find happiness in and not to live up to our expectations. I try to always offer support, rather than criticism or even advice. Everyone feels like they want to be "helpful" and offer their opinion, but not everyone thinks about how it might read...here I go offering advice;-) See I'm very imperfect too! I felt those same self-imposed expectations re: gaining the "right" amount of weight with pregnancy, taking it off fast, etc., but ultimately it didn't really matter (and I don't have a large following). I guess I'm just trying to say I support you as you are and wish you the best life has to offer! The baby (and your current family) are what are most important anyway!

  45. Just want you to know that I found your blog threw Mama L.. you are a true inspiration! One of the HUGEST reasons I choose to follow the two of you is because of y'alls HONESTY!!! You are a freaking rock star, people are always going to judge. From my experience the problem is typically with the person that is pointing the finger or doing the judging. They are either jealous and or they lack something. Don't let the critics get to ya. Keep being YOU and be very proud of it because for every hater you have, you also have double or triple the ones that LOVE ya! Me being one of the MANY that love ya! (;

  46. Meg--as someone who also struggled to get pregnant, (twice) I just hope you're able to relax and actually enjoy being that way. It goes by so quickly. Just eat! And post it or don't, but just know that you WILL gain weight and you SHOULD gain weight and anyone judging you for that is a moron. Not your problem! You know what's healthy for you, no one else does. (Except your doc) And you are so dedicated to working out, that the weight, regardless of what you gain, will come off. It will. Just enjoy this time. You deserve to! :)

  48. Megan... I am sorry that you feel like this. I want you to take a minute and think about a few things... 1) how long have you been trying to have a baby... 2) how many treatments you had to go through to be pregnant 3) how many ups and downs that meant for not only you but for you heart and soul... 4) what this means for you.... YOU are having a baby!!! a blessing from God something that you and your hubby deserve something that you have been trying so hard for.. I know it is easier said than done but don't let people steal this from you, don't steal it from yourself.. this is a blessing.. don't think you have to have a perfect pregnancy eat what you want in moderation do what you need to do and let that lay.. or lie or whatever hahaha.. This blessing that you worked so hard for and prayed so hard for shouldnt be anything but amazing, and an amazing experience... You should enjoy eating, rubbing your belly and enjoying the time with Maddy that you have while she is your only baby. Your doing amazing mama :) keep it up and dont let anyone bring you down.. there is no test, no invisable test... you're just a preggo my eggo trying to be fit and grow a healthy baby... I mean what did everyone else do today.. ummm because I am pretty sure it wasnt make some ones lung :) Hahahahah this is what I would tell my husband when I needed something or he asked me what I did all day... " I made a liver today what did you do!" :) So chin up buttercup... your beautiful and this is a blessing dont let anyone take that away from you <3 Crystal Michelle

  49. I just want to say that I think you're awesome. You are a real life blogger and that's why we come back. I'm pregnant (31 almost 32 weeks) and I've put the same high expectations on myself because my mother and mother-in-law had no issues with weight during or after pregnancy but when I'm thinking clearly I can honestly say "I'm doing my best. I eat mostly good stuff and I'm still exercising, that's okay for me". Your body is busy creating the miracle of life that you’ve tried so hard for, so don’t put undue pressure on yourself, your baby or your family. Just keep on keeping on…I think you’re doing great!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I started following you because of your DIY decor projects. Those are still my favorite posts. :)

    I'm not a blogger, so I can't speak of those added pressures. But I can say that women judge far too frequently. Once I quit comparing myself to other, I found I was also judging them less and in turn became a much happier person (to myself and to be around).

    Enjoy your pregnancy because you are growing a miracle!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think you look fantastic! Just remember how far you've come from your first pregnancy, and that you have the knowledge and motivation this time around to keep yourself healthy. I'd hate to see you get down on yourself for gaining weight during a pregnancy! Your best readers will still think the sun shines out of your ass (Juno quote, anyone?) I just got married last Nov, and feel like part of the reason I don't want to have kids yet, is that I don't want to be huge AND pregnant...I just need to find the motivation in myself to get healthy now so it's not that much more diffcult later.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think you are amazing for putting it all out there and being so real with everyone! You have come so far, and are a true inspiration to others. I wish you nothing but the best of luck with the pregnancy. Don't think of how far you have to go, look at how far you have come! :)

  53. You know, I don't consider you a weight loss blogger - I think of you as a healthy living blogger. And that involves so much more than the pounds gained/lost. For me, healthy living includes a combination of physical and mental health. Your positive spirit AND your fitness aptitude are what draw me to your blog. And now that you're pregnant, having a healthy pregnancy is something I'm following (for you - I have 4 year old twins and an almost 2 year old - I'm DONE!). I think you are setting a fabulous example of a healthy pregnancy with exercise and eating, all guided by a physician. Real life has ups and downs, good days and bad, donuts & egg whites. :) I appreciate that you share all of those things with your readers. Anything less would ring "fake" to me and lose my attention and respect. Keep up the wonderful inspiration. Twelve lbs doesn't change that (especially for a pregnant lady). Wishing you sunshine and smiles today and every day. Courtney

  54. I'm a weight loss blogger too, with a 100 pound loss before I got pregnant with my daughter. I understand where you're coming from - it was so hard for me to blog while I was pregnant because I was gaining, and a lot faster than I would have preferred. I actually quit blogging during most of the pregnancy because I didn't have much to talk about except the pregnancy, especially since I wasn't eating well out allowed to work out. :/ You're still an inspiration and even though you're gaining, I think your dedication to your body and your readers will help readers that are pregnant or will get pregnant to keep up a healthy lifestyle. :)

  56. If you were to post about a "perfect" pregnancy...or only how awesome your journey (pregnancy or weigh loss) was..I would not come here & read you. I read you because you are REAL and I can RELATE. I can not relate to perfect. I need to know I'm not the only one that struggles, has set backs, & fails. I need the encouragement to keep going..to do what you don't want to. That's why I read you. Watching you hit the #5amclub on IG for a year has motivated me to finally suck it up & do it! I've been doing it for about a month & a half and feel better than ever. Just the fact that I get to hashtag that chit #5amclub & be a part of your IG group is motivation! Ha! Shake the haters & keep being you! That's what I'm here for.

  57. Thank you for sharing your life. Your and Mama Laughlins blogs have helped me to better myself and to remember to keep going. Thank you for still blogging and sharing despite the negative feedback from others. Your like me I put a lot of pressure on myself for things and I hope you have a healthy happy pregnancy :)

  58. Think of it this way -- it's a journey, not a destination. When you lost your weight, you didn't stop working out because you finally met your goal. You continued to work your ass so you could stay there and not end up right back where you started. I don't have children, so the concept of being pregnant is completely foreign to me, fit or not, but I feel this is just another bend in the road that is YOUR JOURNEY!

    We all eat bad every now and then. We all carry a few extra pounds now and then. It's ok!

    Good luck and prayers to you. :)

  59. I can't imagine the amount of pressure. I think the negativity that comes out of people's mouth is just inconsiderate and should be kept to themselves. I hope that you're able to get over this hump (yes, I said hump)and really enjoy your current journey. You've worked so hard and waited so long for another baby that you should beable to enjoy and cherish every second of it. This blog is about you and your life, and that's why I keep reading!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love that you keep your blog real! I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would EVER post negative comments on someone's blog - if you don't like what someone is putting out there, just don't read it. Duh. Nothing good comes from putting someone else down.
    Your blog is not only inspiring, but funny - and I wish you a very happy and healthy pregnancy!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I need to comment more but I do love your blog. It must be so hard sharing such a personal journey! People tend to forget that at the end of the day your are a human being - AND YOU ARE PREGNANT!! Not everyone gains the least amount of weight while pregnant, the thing is you know how to lose it once not pregnant. Just because you put it out there for everyone doesn't mean they have a right to be mean and hurtful with your own journey! I don't know many pregnant Mama's running 8-12 miles so keep doing you, because it's pretty inspiring!

  62. I think you look beautiful! I love reading your blog - all of it no matter what you have going on. If you are working out or eating a cheeseburger you are a fab person! I am sad to hear you are feeling blue! I hope you never quit blogging and it's nice to know that you are human too. Then I don't feel as bad if I eat fast food or miss a workout because that is real life. Even the people that inspire you the most do those things!

  64. Megan, I can't imagine how hard it is to keep it up. I've been a reader for quite awhile of both you and Brandi and it always amazes me the ridicule I see in the comments on both Instagram and your blog posts. I just wanted to tell you that you are awesome. I felt that same pressure when I was pregnant, and I don't even have a blog! (Well, not one that I post regularly to or that has any sort of following.) Something's wrong with our society...and it's just too easy to be judgmental, especially when there's the veil of the internet to hide us. Keep it up!

    ReplyDelete
  65. It sucks that people can hide behind their computers and be so dang mean! Being a woman should mean you are in an exclusive club where we hold each other up when we are down, and cheer each other on when we are succeeding. We all know how hard it is just to be in our own skin sometimes.. without beating each other up.

    You rock skinny, fat, pregnant or not. Be who you are that's why we read your stuff!

  66. I wish I had some amazing thing to say that would cheer you up. Focus on yourself, your growing baby, and your family and all will be well. Will you gain weight and more than you want? Maybe! But you now have the power to lose it after your pregnancy. Plus, you are super duper cute with your pregnancy bump!

    ReplyDelete
  67. For the record, I think you are amazing and I hope these crabby people will shut up and let you be you! You are doing a great job during this pregnancy and those who have nothing nice to say should keep their mouths shut!!! :)

  68. Sometimes people who make nasty comments are unhappy with their own lives and jump on you to be able to vent. You are doing fantastic and I, for one, love to read your funny, insightful, and encouraging blog. I will probably never meet you in my lifetime, but I do consider you a friend. Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing your beautiful baby belly and the wonderful little life that will be extremely lucky to have you for a mommy

    ReplyDelete
  69. Well I'm glad you're not perfect. I'm glad you don't eat 100% clean. I'm glad you talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly. Because that's relatable. I don't think you'd be as motivating if you portrayed yourself as perfect.
    You just keep on keepin' on doing what you're doing! Because for every "Negative Nelly" out there, there are at least 100 "Happy Hollys" that look forward to your posts. Whatever they may be about!

  70. I've been following your blog since Decemberish. I'm the quiet follower type. Now I feel like I need to, I don't want the negative people to always be the ones commenting.

    I have a lot of weight to lose and reading your blog gave me the confidence and the encouragement I needed to actually get my shit together and do this. This whole process is overwhelming and I feel like most of the successful weight loss stories I heard about are from people who had 20 pounds to lose...while that's awesome for them, it's been so nice to read about your journey and know that it's possible!


    Just wanted to let you know that I'm so thankful that you blog and have a great day!

    PS. I'm in Plano and if I lived closer to you I'd totally want to join your gym so you could kick my ass at a freakishly early hour! So instead, I follow some of your workouts you post and try not to die while doing them:)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I think you're GREAT! and I love checking my email everyday to read your blog =) and OMG I wish I was eating that wonderful looking breakfast right now...

  72. I just want to say that the stuff that makes you feel bad sometimes -- showing what you really eat, talking about your normal pregnancy weight gain -- is part of your honesty, and why you are terrific and much more fun to read than a weight loss blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Awww...Megan, you are a sweetheart and we all love ya!! For those who think it's their place to let you know what you are eating isn't this or that, WTF? You are not asking for anyone to 'ok' them. Seriously, I don't know how you put up with the things you do. But I give you soooooooooo much credit for doing it!! You ARE remarkable!! If there is a way to 'block' those snarky people from your blog, do it! As for your 12lb. gain, girl you look WONDERFUL! You are carrying a new life in you! I can imagine it HAS to be hard and scary to gain, but you KNOW your goal is to make this pregnancy a different one, a healthy one. Sheeetttt....as soon as you have that little one, any extra few pounds, you are totally going to lose asap! As for making friends as we are older..... :( unfortunately I know what you mean........

    ReplyDelete
  74. You are amazing. We do live in a society of "judgers" and it's hard. There are times I have caught myself passing jugdement on others. Keep your head up and just do you! People love you for that!

    ReplyDelete
  75. You went through a lot to get pregnant, enjoy it! It makes me sad that people are so rude and feel like they can say whatever they want just because they aren't saying it to your face. Vent away, but know that we love you and don't care how much weight you gain during this miraculous time! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  76. No one should have shit to say if you gain 15 or 75 freaking lbs.. ya know why?? Because it's YOUR body, not theirs!
    And even if you DO gain 75 lbs. (lezbehonest, you totes won't) you and I both know it will be gone in due time.
    So keep your head up. You look amazing, you are healthy and MiniSkinny is healthy. That is ALL that matters. :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Here's some irony for you, when I read your post yesterday about gaining 12 pounds, my thought was "that's it?" and I wanted to post to you not to restrict your food and to eat up because your baby needs you and blah blah blah....

    I was being judgmental :( I don't want to be like that. I trust that you know what is best for you and your baby and you don't need some on-line person preaching to you.

    It's ironic because I was being judgmental in the opposite way of what you expected.

    But still, judgmental none the less. And so I didn't post a comment about it because you know what, what you gain or don't gain is your business. You share with us because you are real, not so that we can preach at you for this or that. You love yourself and your baby and you will find your way through this all in a healthy happy way, whatever the weight gain or not.

  78. I feel the same way as you but in the music world. For the past several years, particularly the last 2 years, my music career has been very busy, very publicized, and the expectations from my followers has been high. I compare myself to other musicians who are single and don't have families and see how much they are accomplishing in their careers and I can get quite down. and when I post a lot of family stuff, I feel a lot of my fanbase feel like "Well she must not be doing much with her career right now" and feel like I have let people down. I feel this invisible pressure to always be doing something or be putting on a cocnert or writing a film score or something. I also have lost a lot of weight, and feel a lot of pressure to look a certain way. now that I am pregnant, I have had to cancel a LOT of projects because I just dont feel confident in how I look right now and feel like I would get a ton of negative comments on my body.

    Anyway, my whole point, is it is HARD when people are watching you and have expectations on you. But the good news is a lot of that pressure, I think, is what we put on ourselves to be honest. When I am open and honest and REAL with people (like you have been here), Ifind that most of them are actually very understanding and are relieved to see that i am normal and human too).

    Being pregnant is so freaking hard! Every day I have some minor freakout about gaining weight, or what have you. I definitely do not feel pretty and feel fat. I have to take selfies all of the time just to show myself that I don't look as bad as my brain seems to think I do, or as bad as my FEEL. I'm sure it is the same with you!

    If it gives you any hope, my friend just had a baby and she gained 15 lbs the first trimester, but then only gained 10 for the rest. So overall she only gained 25 lbs total. I have now gained about 10 pounds the first trimester and like you I am disappointed in myself about it. THe ONLY thing I can do is just keeping to try my best. My trainer recently told me "You have no control where the weight is gained or how it goes on your body, you can only TRY to control your nutrition when you are not wanting to barf and try to be active here and there the best you can." That made me feel better. ANd after these babies are born, we can get in the best shape of our lives again and feel more like ourselves again. :)

    You're awesome, I hope you know that. I feel like what I said was all jumbled and weird, but I hope some of it made sense. ANd sorry for typos. Didn't feel like going back to fix LOL.

  79. PregMeg, who gives a shit about thye haters even though I know it sucks. You are a badass. Anybody who's up at 5 and burns more calories while I'm sleeping is a winner to me. Plus I'd much rather hear about Twilight Sparkle or your junk than about how I need to be running my ass like you ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I think you're awesome! I wish I had stayed in better when I was pregnant both times. It's hard to keep it up and you have days where you want to eat everything in sight. Don't give up. I just started following your blog and I love it. I can't wait till I get home from this deployment so I can make mine own food again. I have missed cooking or at least eating better with my family. I gained weight here and now I have to work to get it back off so I can fit back into my pants for fall! Thanks for you and all the other bloggers for being an inspiration to all of us!

    ReplyDelete
  81. There is no judgement, you are just plain awesome. I'm in awe of how much you are motivated and can run circles around me and I'm not pregnant. I think you are an inspiration to so many and I love seeing that you are "real". I want to know that my "real" self can do it too!!! Keep smiling :-D

  82. For every one of those followers out there that make you feel that way, there are nearly 100+ that know you are a real woman, with a real life-We understand and are just like you! *hugs*

  83. I think you are amazing, Megan! I've followed you for quite awhile and love your posts. I know it must be hard to go through this pregnancy in the public eye, but I just wanted to encourage you that you are doing great! I appreciate your openness about everything. Truth is, most women aren't going to look like supermodels while they're pregnant, but it is almost like our society has come to expect that and praises that body type. You are healthy and take great care of your body and that is the best gift you can give to your baby right now. I think you are awesome! I really can't say enough about how wonderful I think you're doing. I'm behind you, rooting for you & sending my love from afar. :)

  84. Also, I really appreciate that you share that you don't eat clean 100% of the time! It makes me feel more like a human that I can still be healthy and not have to eat clean all the time.

  85. Awe Meg - you are amazing. I respect your honesty and bravery. It is hard to put yourself out there but you do it in the best way possible. You are relatable and to so many woman that is something we need. So WE feel normal too. So we don't give up on ourselves. So we are less critical of ourselves. Your honesty makes it possible to brush ourselves off and keep going. Even if you didn't have a blog there are always going to be haters. I can attest to that. Nine times out of ten, the people passing judgement on you (or anyone for that matter) has more to do with themselves and nothing to do with you. You're beautiful! Inside and out. (I've met you - I can attest to that too) just make sure you are doing what makes YOU happy. Life is too short!

  86. Girl! I just want you to know that I have followed your blog for a long time...and you are an inspiration simply because you are REAL!
    Don't let others get you down...you seem like you are hard enough on yourself as it is! I gained 70 pounds with my pregnancy, and I am finally getting serious about losing all of that...because of you and your DietBet!
    I love that you are approaching life with a healthy attitude! Don't beat yourself up for falling off the wagon or giving in to temptation. Just remember that this pregnancy is starting on a whole different level than your first...you are so much healthier off the bat with this one. I bet it will surprise you how much easier it will be to get back into shape afterward.
    Do what you can...be happy...don't stress...live your life for you and your loved ones <3

  87. You are really fabulous & a true inspiration. I will not be pregnant again but you inspire my non-pregnant self to be better about fitness & nutrition & frankly just generally being HAPPY! So to all the complainers, protestors, criticizers, negative Nelly's, and haters, please try to remember what I hope we all learned when we were children, "if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all." Life is hard enough without other people trying to bring you down or rain on your parade. "Blowing out someone else's candle will not make yours shine any brighter." Keep being true to yourself Megan and do what makes you feel proud, good, happy. In the grand scheme of things, only you, Oliver, and TS (& the rest of your fam, I'm sure) matter in this equation. The rest of us are just fluff and we should all be thankful that you give us the time that you do.

  88. Weight gain is expected in pregnancy. Don't let it get you down. You are still living healthy and doing what is best for you. That is all ANYONE should ask from you. For you to do what is best for you. Hugs!

  89. Thank you for being real and not fake, and it helps us!!!! Here is a little saying that I learned in my Jazzercise class:

    Don't let the crabs in the bucket get you down. One crab can get out of a bucket when he is in there alone by crawling out, but when he is in there with other crabs they pull him from the edge and won't let him out, thereby suffering the fate with the rest of them...sort of if I'm not happy neither can you be.

    So...don't let the crabs in the bucket pull you down!!

  90. I love your blog!! Seriously one of my top reads. Actually I save your new posts to read last because you (and MamaLaughlin of course) are my favs! Mostly because you keep it real annddddd because I am 14 weeks along so pretty much we are bump buddies! ;) I totally understand where you are coming from about the judgment feelings. People can be so hateful... but I am SO inspired by all of your workouts. You are doing a great job of staying active which is so hard for me at this point and so I love reading your workouts & knowing I am not alone in my blah, I feel like a jelly roll, I want to eat a grocery store feelings! I'm like hey if SkinnyMeg can do it at 13 weeks SO CAN I! :)Keep your head up lady!

  91. I don't have time to read all the comments, so I'm sure this will re-iterate what everyone has already said, but it sounds like you can't get too much positive right now, so... Please know that though you are often lumped in with other bloggers who take a different "tone" to their weight loss/mommy blogs, that does not mean you are LIKE those bloggers. You are real, you are humble and kind and sweet. You are a great mommy to both of your babies. I don't know many other moms who would have their asses up at 5AM while pregnant. You are doing your best. Every. Damned. Day. and no one can ask more of you. Not everyone's body is the same. If you gain 40 lbs. while pregnant, you will lose 40 lbs. after your healthy baby is born. Don't let it get to you, girl. Just one older woman's opinion... =)

    ReplyDelete
  92. I know how you feel, sort of. I had a weight loss blog, but on a much smaller scale. The pressure can be good as a motivator but bad because of the guilt you sometimes feel.

    I think you look great, you are so lucky to be pregnant. I am still waiting on a positive cycle, almost at the 1 year mark. Enjoy growing that baby & eat what you want in moderation, you will lose it fast once the baby comes. From reading your blog, I can tell you have amazing willpower & the fact that you are working out 5 days a week is incredible. With my first I could barely make it home from work before falling asleep on the couch at 5pm. You're doing great!

    p.s. The signs your Mom makes are awesome! Would she consider making them & selling them on Etsy? Not sure how the chalk would stay but maybe something generic in a permanent ink/marker, where someone could fill in the numbers, etc? Just an idea. I would totally buy one! I see them on Pinterest all the time but I can barely sign my name legibly! :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. PregMeg, you are an awesome inspiration to all women and some men (HJ!). Keep up the great work...you look amazing. I'm 19 weeks pregnant and have always struggled with my weight so this is hard for me as well...just knowing you're "supposed to be putting on weight" isn't enough to make it ok...I understand completely. I, like many others, encourage you to continue sharing your life because it makes us feel normal :) Thank you for all you do and have done!!

  94. From one Texas lady to another, no judgements here! I, too, quietly follow your blog....for motivation to workout!
    Honey, you have a Little one you are feeding as well as yourself. Eat what you want & what that little one is craving!! :)
    Please don't let your weight bother you during your pregnancy. Each person is different! I love reading about "pregnant Meg", your workouts, etc.. You have an admirer here. Stay true to yourself & you'll be happy. There's always a bad seed (hater) in the crowd....you can't let them bring you down. <3 your blog.

  95. I don't post a lot of what I eat either. I recently decided that I plan on competing next year in a figure competition. I've seen how people are snarky towards HLB and people that compete, so I've just not going to even bother. I've seen how people judge other people's food choices. No one can "eat clean" 100%. People are human beings. There's no way that I'm going to give up x food, because person A deems it "unhealthy." I like food, and I'm going to eat what I want. The key is moderation and making smarter choices.

    I'm sure the people judging have excellent eating habits all the time. (sarcasm)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Well, I'm a fairly new follower but what keeps me coming back is that exactly: you keep it real. There is no judgement or anything to be embarrassed about. We all go through hard times and then life happens and we fall off the wagon to get back up. I love it because that is part of having fun. So what if you ate a cheeseburger? You are accountable only to yourself. My question to you if you told me about the cheeseburger would be: PLEASE tell me you enjoyed it! Woot! Life is too short to judge people on how they look when they are trying really hard. I guess this is a long winded way of saying: DON'T LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR SPARKLE! You are totally awesome, momma!

  97. I have loved reading your blog from the moment I came across it (back when you did a guest post on ML's page). Your blog is so many things and I love that you keep it real. I feel bad that there are people out there that are soo insecure with themselves that they feel the need to lash out at others. You are an amazing blogger! Keep up the good work! And don't let the weight gain with a baby put you down-- You worked so hard to get that baby and you need to just enjoy every second of your little miracle growing inside you!!

  98. I have never in my whole life "followed a blogger" until my daughter told me about you & Mama L. I love what you write and it's totally real and motivating to me, but I totally see where you are coming from by not wanting to read what people have to say. Just know that there are "real" people out here, like myself, that you inspire!!!

  100. You are creating a life inside you.. you are supposed to gain weight! Don't feel guilty about and try not to freak out about it. You have all the tools and drive to lose whatever you gain after you have your baby. I've been reading your blog for a long time and was right along with you wishing for you to finally get pregnant.. so just live, eat what you need to eat, exercise if you can, enjoy these precious few months without the stress and anxiety of balancing every calorie and worrying about every lb.

    ReplyDelete
  101. You're Pregnant!! Don't worry about letting people down... You are a HUGE inspiration to hundreds/thousands already! <3 There is no perfect way to do anything in life and anyone who comes on here and judges you is just mean! Only you know what is right for you, your body, and your baby!

  102. The only score for a perfect pregnancy is if mom and baby are hoy and healthy. Every thing else will change after delivery. Stop being hard on yourself and enjoy what you've worked so hard to accomplish!!

  105. Greasy cheeseburgers are yummy. Doesn't make you a bad person enjoy them sometimes. I actually think it's super annoying if a weight loss blogger never eats anything other than fruits and veggies. Because that's not a life I can relate to. Don't let mean people get you down.

  109. I've been following silently for awhile but I had to comment on this. Pregnancy is hard. It's not one-size-fits-all. People who judge pregnant womens' bodies are just a**holes. Plain and simple.

    I had a very difficult, high-risk pregnancy and I was an anxious, emotional mess - I pretty much just gave up on myself and gained 60 lbs. Yep, 60. And people said terrible things - "are you sure you're not pregnant with twins?!" Ugh. I just held my head up, said, "Nope! He just has a big house," and smiled. Because who the eff cares what they think? They are no better than me. I may have been fat but at least I'm kind! And I made a perfect person who was worth every.single.pound.Now, that's not to say I should have gained 60 lbs...but I did the best I could do at the time.

    You just have to do your best, Megan, for you and your little one. No one else matters. And believe me, sister, you kick ass. I have never run 12 miles, let alone while pregnant! You look amazing and you really do inspire us gals :) I'm even in your DietBet! I'm 40 lbs down postpartum and feeling so much better.

    You know you'll lose the weight. You've done it before. So don't sweat the 12 lbs. so far or whatever you gain. "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." <3

  110. Jut wanted to chime in with the chorus and tell you how awesome you are. :) I like the fact that you keep it real and don't pretend to live off of plain kale and raw almonds like some people!

  111. I *am* judging you, but the only judgments I have are about how awesome you are, and how I love reading your blog. Seriously, be please nice to yourself. You are growing another human being. Even if you weren't, we all have "blah" moments and times where we aren't being as healthy as we should. So what? That just makes us human. ((hugs))

    ReplyDelete
  112. You are one fabulous lady! Love reading your blog & I hope you see how positive of an impact you are making on so many women! I truly can't understand why women tear one another down instead of supporting each other, it just blows my mind! Thank you for being such a wonderful example of what a balanced, healthy & fit life style looks like! :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. I think the inspiration lies in people who are exactly like you. Who admit that they struggle and who hop right back on the horse. Even if it is just mental struggle. Fact is you are creating another little human and you cannot control some things. I know people who had a super healthy pregnancy and workedout the entire time and still gained 40 pounds and then I know people who gained 25. There is just no telling, so please be kind ot yourself. I much rather read blogs/instagram feeds of people who say “Hey, I had some fun this weekend, I made some not so great choices but they were oh so delicious and now it’s back to the normal grind”. I think that inspires people because failure is inherent and if we were surrounded by people who are perfect all the time, every tiny discretion would feel like such a HUGE failure. So I think you are doing a lot to inspire and you are everything but phony.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I actually respect you and like you more! (If that was possible) lol because you are a real person! We gain weight with pregnancy! So you've gained 12 pounds.....you may gain in the beginning and then taper off. But, however it happens......when that little bundle of joy comes you will be so happy, a little weight won't get you down!! And we all know you will work harder than anyone to lose it!! No worries, you got this!!

    ReplyDelete
  115. :) I hope you're feeling better today.

    I've already written and said that if I ever become a mom, I hope I am as cool as you!

  116. You are such an inspiration to me with your healthy lifestyle! You are human...no one is perfect and we aren't supposed to be! Don't be too hard on yourself, you are still exercising and staying healthy through your pregnancy so who cares what others say!

  117. I feel the same way with my weight loss blog. You should feel proud of yourself, at least you are STILL working out. I'm not due to my placenta previa, but its hard because you worked SO hard to loose the weight and eat right and now here we are .. gaining weight. I gained 50 with my 1st daughter and its hard to not beat myself up about the weight gain this time. But you can't. Hang in there! We are all here for you!

  118. Seriously...I feel like we would be BFF's in real life. I love you so much! All of the negativity pisses me off. You are truly such an amazing person and I think those who talk the most are the ones who are just jealous (high school for sure). You have worked your ass off to get to where you are at now and you didn't do it so you can have some anonymous asshole leave a comment telling you that pancakes are going to kill your fetus and make Twilight gain a billion pounds by the time she is 16. You are also a phenomenal parent, and you know SO many think that about you! Love you!!

  119. Totally agree you are amazeballs!! I think you are such a inspiration. I hope if I get pregnant I am able to workout like you still do. Heck I am not pregnant and still haven't worked up to doing one of your workouts. Most of the time people that want to be hatters are trying to deflect from there own insecurity. Just ignore and keep it up you are awesome

  121. I've been so excited to share this journey with you. You kick my butt every day and I get jealous you can still run 12 miles. I am 17 weeks and ran a full marathon 1 month before getting pregnant. While I haven't gained any weight because of being extremely ill, I have totally lacked on the energy and ability to work out like you have. I look at your Instagram and think if I can just get 2 days in like her, I'll be okay. Keep doing what you do!

  122. Hi Megan!

    I dont really comment ever, but after reading this post, I had to. This blog (as much as we all love you) should be such a secondary concern. ENJOY this pregnancy and watching your baby grow big and strong; we all know how much you've wanted it! Enjoy eating delicious food and don't forget to enjoy your life. You are an absolutely amazing person and I for one, have never read this blog and have judged you. I love who you are and all that you stand for. I like that you're a real person and so down to earth. You're awesome! Don't forget it! :) You rock!

  123. As hard as it may be, don't get caught up worrying what people think. Especially not about your pregnancy, make it as enjoyable as possible. We all know that nobody is perfect, it's actually reassuring to know somebody that is such an inspiration for weight loss still has treat meals and isn't 100% happy with her body. We'd all feel a lot worse about ourselves otherwise. Plus it shows that your whole life doesn't have to revolve around weight loss all of the time, it'd be scary if it did! Theres more to life so don't dwell on the bad things, focus on the good :-)
