Yesterday, my sister and went shopping for groceries. It was relatively hot, things worked out fine and I was more or less content with the little outing. However, lately I've begun to whine a lot about having put on so much weight - rather unexplainedly, I think. It's occurred to me that it might be a side effect of my medication against high blood pressure, that I got from being pregnant. I'm not sure about that, but it might be an explanation. In any case, I'm pretty unhappy about looking the way I look. For instance, I've had to put away most of my clothes and had to try and get new ones (not quite successfully, at least yet). Anyway, to cut to the chase, I decided to take a photo of my shadow, or at least part of it because it seems to be better looking than I am.

I've also started using my new handbag. It's pretty big and not my usual style (I'm not really a handbag person, to be honest). I've just been thinking I should develop my Moomin Mama traits. :) I'm going to be carrying around more stuff, that maybe my children will need (other than the contents of of the changing bag). What do you think? Is it too big for me? I thought it would be difficult to carry it, without a shoulder strap, but it wasn't.

Silly trivial stuff, I know. Just ignore this post if you think it's boring.

From what I've heard, it can be really hard to lose pregnancy weight. It must be even harder when you've had twins and are taking medication for high blood pressure. Don't be so hard on yourself, okay? I'm sure it must be frustrating and disheartening, but there will come a time when you can lose some (or all) of the weight. You could ask your doctor if weight gain could be a symptom of your medication. Maybe your doctor could suggest another medication or provide some weight-loss tips.

I think there are very few women who are happy with their bodies. I know I could certainly lose some weight.

Your new bag is beautiful! I'm a big fan of bigger bags, especially shoulder bags. However, it looks like yours works just as well with the shorter strap. I hope it continues to suit your needs. :-)
