Sympathetic Weight gain !!
Most of you have probably heard this phrase. It refers to the husband of pregnant women putting on weight !
Today, I purchased a brand new digital weighing scale. This scale is so smart that it remembers your last weight measurement, shows you body mass index (if you program in your height) and also tells you if you are overweight or underweight !!
Now, scary as it is , here is my readout !!
This smart weighing scale has declared that I am overweight in a nice 12 point Bold Font !!
Why did this happen to me ? I used to be a 140 lb guy before my wife's pregnancy. When she got pregnant and got all those cravings, we frequented all the local bay area restaurants (special mention has to be made of all the Indian ones which put extra butter and ghee and to olive garden!), order a lot of stuff and then realize that her stomach is too full too soon !
To top things off, the wife always forgets to carry a purse since her loose fitting Indian clothes dont go well with her purse, and that means yours truly always gets the bill paying experience. My conscience always fights my body when it comes to wasting all that good food, especially after I see the bill. So, I end up eating all the stuff that is left. Little wonder then that I added a nice 17 lbs compared to my wifes 27 lbs on the day of delivery.
Now that the C-section is done and she is getting back to normal, she is losing weight faster than me and I actually look like I am pregnant now !
There has got to be a law against this people !! Husbands should be allowed a free lyposuction (tummy tuck) the day before the wife's C-section as part of health insurance. I am planning to collect a million signatures from sympathetic weight gain husbands so this can go on Arnolds next ballot measure !!
Please support this overweight husband in this cause !
