After Kobe’s first game back on Sunday against the Raptors he did comment about how he was a bit overweight and needed to get back in full basketball shape. Well he says he lost 5 pounds after that game and his wife Vanessa is not happy:
Kobe lost 5 pounds after first game back, says his wife isn't happy: "Vanessa (expletive) hates me. 'One game and you lose five pounds?'

So my theory here is that while Kobe was rehabbing, Vanessa learned to cook and was hooking up all the nice home cooked meals. So it was a sign that her food was good with the gained weight. the other possibility is she like Kobe ‘pudgy’.
