Here’s an update on my little “get skinnier” project. It’s now about 9 months post-baby and I am back down to a bit less than pre-preg weight (I was a bit heavier than I’d prefer pre-preg). I’m a bit more jiggly, but that comes with the territory. I stuck with the situps pretty good for a while, then faded out. So now I just have dance, walks while babywearing a 20lb baby, and not eating food because there are more important things to get done when the happy is happy and/or napping. So I’m really pretty happy with where I am now. I even got to unpack the ‘skinny pants’ from the shed…and I’m wearing a belt with some of them! I am VERY lucky to apparently not be very genetically predisposed to stretch marks etc, which I am super thankful for (I got a few on my butt and boobs, but even those are barely visible). There are also some beach bod (ha) pics on the beach wrap-up post (but they’re mostly of the baby’s beach bod). I took the afters right before we left for vacation.
Here is the AFTER…then we’ll do a little comparison.
Now here’s the comparison. I was doing only my standard “for posture” suck in, promise.
So it takes time, but you CAN get your bod back. Sure, it won’t be exactly the same, but eh that’s life.
