373: Sharing

People who do things by route without thinking beyond the why often anger me. I had a doctor's appointment the other day and was told I was 3 lbs heavier than the recommended weight gain for this point in my pregnancy, which would put me on a trajectory to be 6 lbs heavier by the end, 1/5th more than was recommended and thus technically put me at higher risk of diabetes, pre-eclampsia and C-Section. The doctor suggested I practice greater portion control and cut out more whole grains. The insanity of her recommendations eluded her. My heart goes out to anyone who has ever been told they need to drop pounds just because they fall a bit outside of the textbook numbers.
