The Postpartum Physique

At any given point throughout the day, you could probably walk up and give my pants a little tug and they'd come right down. I'd ask, however, that you please not try that.

What I'm getting at is that my post-partum fat pants are way too loose and baggy on me now. When I wear them, I look like MC Hammer, circa 1992. Good news, right?

Except I went to try on jeans in the next size down last weekend and while they fit beautifully in the legs, they're still a too snug around the waist. Boo. So, fat pants it is for a while longer.

I am frustrated with the fact that five whole months have passed and I still can't fit into the things I'd like to, but truth be told, I haven't tried very hard. I tried to start working out regularly before Christmas, but then the-most-wonderful-time-of-the-year hit and I never really started it up again.

And, to be even more honest, I pretty well eat whatever I want. And what I want is usually fried, sweet or accessible through a drive thru window.

I really have lost quite a bit of weight since I had Ben (obviously) but I still have about 10 pounds to get back to my pre-Ben weight. And a lot more than that to get back to my ideal weight.

Honestly, I'd be happy with any weight that would get the wii fit to stop making fun of me.

Keep up the good work, it is such a hard adjustment! And yes, there are many times where I would like to throw the wiimote at stupid wii fit for a. making my mii get fatter, b. telling me that i'm overweight, and c. trying to make me provide a reason as to why i gained weight when "i was pregnant" isn't an option.

ha! i played wii fit a day or two before I had aaron JUST so that when I got to play again i would have a huge loss in weight so they would STOP making fun of me. :) why isn't pregnant an option when they ask you why you think you have been gaining weight?

:: While I don't feel your pain on the post-pregnancy part, I do know how hard it has been for me to lose weight. That is one of the reasons I'm trying to lose it now, so when I do get pregnant, it won't be so hard to lose it afterwards? That's the idea at least. We'll see how it works out... ;o)

I think post-baby pants are just a problem. I lost all the weight according to the scale but my stomach is still gushy and I still get "muffin top". Sigh.

They need to have post-baby pants that aren't "mom" pants!

The Wii Fit makes fun of everyone. Case in point: It tells ME that I'M obese! Go figure!
