If you don’t like reading about body issues then I think you should stop here LOL!
Jillian Micheals of Biggest Loser fame recently said that she would rather adopt than get pregnant and ruin the body that she worked so hard for. ( ok i added the worked so hard for part) and I understood what she was saying. Recovering from a pregnancy can be rough… not everybody can bounce back immediately.
Now don’t get me wrong I would never give up the experience of carrying my children and having them, it is the aftermath that I am not happy with. I keep looking in the mirror and am so not enjoying what looks back.The twins sweethearts that they are unknowingly wrecked my body. I honestly can’t look at my stretch marks and say YEAH those are my trophies I see them more as battle wounds. To be fair I recovered quickly after my first two pregnancies. The boobs got too small but everything else went back into bikini- ready place 5 months after delivery. With the twin pregnancy I was a whole lot bigger…of course I was carrying two LOL and I had a c-section (worst experience in my life) And going on 11 mths later I still have a ‘paunch’, no muscle tone, no shape. 😦
No shape ’cause I have lost too much weight (no sleep will do that to you LOL) I feel like one of those older skinny women with skin flapping all around me
Breastfeeding always works for me in terms of losing pounds. And the cup size is also a great side benefit. Though even though I knew it was going to happen it still almost knocked me out senseless when I went from channeling Pamela Anderson ok maybe not as drastic as Pamela but you get my drift to channeling Keira Knightley overnight when the girls decided to stop breastfeeding at 9 mths. <<pout>>
I miss breast feeding. I didn’t normally but I guess knowing that this is the last I would be breastfeeding made me feel really sad. Anyway I digress I lost my body and I am fighting hard to find it back LOL
By the by I am lucky that my audience is small and not male oriented LOL because I think most people would be like what will all this talk about boobs.
Have a great day.
