I don't like the word fat. Like what's the cutoff? You just feel fat right now and the scale is a bit up since you just had a baby.
Congratulations, by the way.
Writers write how they are feeling and you feel fat. I get that.
BMI is bullshit. I am 5'1" and pretty tiny, but I have muscle. According to my BMI though, I'm obese. Like beyond overweight. I simply weigh more than that stupid chart wants a 5'1" person to weigh.
Go enjoy that baby and your husband. Your hormones and brain are all over the place right now.
