Losing the Weight

I gained 28 pounds with this pregnancy. After giving birth, I am now 137 pounds. So 12 more pounds to lose and you know the last 10 are the hardest. It took me 10 months with my last pregnancy to lose the pregnancy weight gain. This time I’m eating a lot healthier early on. I haven’t had the go ahead from my OB to exercise but I have been dancing around with my 2 year old. I don’t know if that counts as exercise.

A friend gave me a postpartum support band/belt. It’s a stetchy material that velcros tightly around your waist. People have sworn by it. Even celebrities like Jessica Alba. But I’m not sure it’s right for me. I would wear and it would feel uncomfortable. Laying down in it, using the bathroom, changing…. it’s a hassle with it on.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.
