Is 16 stone too heavy to have a baby? Dog holiday swap shock! School catchment area shake-up

Last Updated on : 2nd April 2013

Dear South West London Mum,Is 16 stone too heavy to have a baby

Mr NappyValleyNet has joined a gym.

As opposed to taking it slowly, he did the typical bloke thing of rushing in and signing himself up for every session he could.

The first class was spin.

Whilst not exactly new to this sort of thing, I did think wise to remind him that the last time he was in a fitness studio the “Back Street

Boys” were “Hanging Tough”.

Three hours later he staggered back through the front door making signs that I could easily interpret for water.

“How was it?” I asked the panting beetroot faced gym bunny.

“She moved me to the front” he huffed “my Blackberry went off and once I switched it off I couldn’t work out what I was meant to be doing,

she said she needed to keep an eye on me”

“But did you enjoy it?”

“It’s a bit like living with you…” he gasped.

“Yessss…” I replied, not sure where this was going to go.

“I kept getting told off, half the time I’m not sure what I should be doing but I think it is doing me some good.”
