Fat pants

Thursday, March 08, 2012

emoticon I had a baby two months ago. Yes...I had high hopes of fitting into my pre-pregnancy jeans. Why not? I wish I could say that the pants would just tight over my tummy...the result of having a baby...but I could not get those jeans to my tummy because my butt and thighs were in the way! emoticon

So what to do?

It is the same as before, eat right and exercise, only this time, I need to actually stay committed to that goal.

So...I will wear my pre-pre-pregnancy jeans again (size 10) and my wedding rings. It will take time and lots of hard work and encouragement from my Spark family...but I will do it.

Why...because that little voice is telling me that I can't...so I must prove it wrong.


but with emoticon and emoticon and emoticon, I will succeed!

    That little voice is a liar! It tells some people "You're too old" or "You've been this way all your life, you can't change!" or "Who do you think you are, you have no willpower!" That's what SparkPeople is all about, we're ganging up on that little voice and we're going to teach it to mind its own business! emoticon

    You have to give your body time to regroup after giving birth...it will be a process you shouldnt rush...if you concentrate on your health, you will shape up... there are exercises for birth recovery that will pull everything back in pretty well...I know you can do this! Just dont be too anxious or hard on yourself... emoticon

    Aww, you will do this. It takes time for your body to adjust after giving birth. You know it's going to happen but don't be to hard on yourself. Caring for an infant is exhausting but wonderful. I'm still trying to lose some of the weight I put on when I had my son......oh yeah, he's 16!!!

    Have fun with that baby. Enjoy every moment because time just flies by when you want it to stand still and keep their little hands in yours!! emoticon

    I know what you mean, I hate that little voice! "You don't have to work out today, take a break" or "Go ahead you can eat that cake, it's just one piece" or the ever popular follow up "Well you ate one you might as well eat two!" Go ahead and prove it wrong. When you do it is so empowering!
    Go ahead, I dare you! :)
