She is probably rocking my CRAZY girdle under that dress, at least I hope so!
Who has time to go clubbing TWO MONTHS after a baby? And would you look at that stomach? The belly button alone AMAZES me.
You bitch, put down those damn weights. Now you're just showing off.
Yes, yes, I know. They are celebrities. They get paid a enormous amount of money to just look like this (and act in movies/tv shows/whatever they still get paid to look good in my mind). Yes, they have trainers 24 hours a day, nannies to watch their baby while they work out and plastic surgeons that will never leak their tummy-tuck/breast lift/thigh lipo secrets due to doctor-patient confidentiality laws, but damn it ladies, can't you just let the pooch hang out a little two months post baby? Must you wear tight pants with no apparent saddlebags and crop tops without a sign of a saggy belly, stretch marks or a c-section scar and say it is all due to working out and "eating right"? No? Fine then! ::sulks::
I do admit, I don't think my body looks THAT bad post-baby. I meant really, I gained something like 42 pounds in the end, and Lucy was only 7 lbs 3 oz, so I did pack on a little extra padding on during my pregnancy. Maybe it was the cheesecake that I ate everyday...mmm, cheesecake, God I love cheesecake.
I started out at 140 lbs pre-pregnancy, I am now at 137 lbs but STILL do not necessarily fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans (I think I've got two pairs on steady rotation out of like...oh... twelve!). That is frustrating. I am still holding a lot of my weight around my middle and, let's be honest, a bunch of it in my boobs (formerly A's now C's, I'm not complaining about that!), so mathematically speaking I should be thinner somewhere else, right? Now if I could only find out where that is and highlight it... does anyone know how to highlight thin ears or skinny feet?
Anyways, you are now officially warned, I'm posting pictures of my bare stomach (::gasp::). Here are the before, during and after pictures:
Ok, it's not too shabby, right? I even think it doesn't look THAT different in the pictures, (you can't see the stretch markets that MAGICALLY appeared only AFTER I had Lucy!), but I definitely notice my extra baggage around the middle, especially when I sit down. Also, when you look at my stomach from the front my belly button now looks sad think :( instead of surprised :o.
Ideally, I'd like to get down to 128 lbs. It's the weight where I've felt the most confident and I haven't weighed that much since Rob and I were dating (damn him and his culinary training!). Any ideas on how? Is anyone out there doing the 30 Day Shred? I've heard about it in the blogosphere and am thinking of giving it a whirl.
