As other things in life are getting better, one thing that's really bothering me is the baby fat I'm still carrying around with me. I've lost 30lbs since giving birth, but I have another 20 I'd like to lose to get back to where I should be.
I thought I was looking pretty good until I saw pictures from L's Baptism. Ouch.
We have a wedding this weekend. I was hoping to look smashing, instead I'm afraid I'll look a bit chubby.
While I was pregnant a friend gave me a "Fat Card" - the permission to gain weight. And I think that women can still have that Fat Card for the 6 weeks after birth (which I'm still in) but then the weight needs to be gone. And really, I wish it was gone already. No more full face, big thighs, back fat and round, round belly. Give me back the body I used to have!
I'd like to say that my full face is from me smiling at Avery so much; you know, I built up my facial muscles. :)ReplyDelete
It didn't take me too long to work off my "baby fat," I just did a ton of ab work. :)
You'll get there, just give yourself a little time (six weeks seems stingy*). Get out there with the stroller and work it, girl.ReplyDelete
*Says the lady who still carries her 'baby weight' almost 2 years later. can it even be called baby weight anymore, or is it just plain fat now?
