I never thought I would ever fit into my gray/grey jeans again! Ha!
I was 68 kilos while pregnant, the heaviest I have ever been my entire life. Looking at my pre-pregnancy clothes during my last trimester I was convinced that I would never be able to wear them again and consequently I would need a complete change of wardrobe. Surprise! Surprise! Ten months post baby, all my clothes fit perfectly.
Quick advice to new moms out there, don’t, DO NOT stress over your weight or how you look after having a baby. You just made an actual human being! I hope you know how amazing and awesome you are for that, If you have doubts let me assure you now, you’re AMAZING! You’re AWESOME! Yeah, you’re a SUPER WOMAN! Instead of worrying about your appearance, you should relax and appreciate yourself for the fact that you played a huge role in bringing a new soul to the world, put your focus on taking care of, loving and bonding with your baby. F@%* societal standards and shame on whoever wants your body to snap back to how it was pre-pregnancy a day or month after you give birth. It takes 9 months to make a baby, it will take more or less the same amount of time for your body to naturally return to how it was.
I’m working on a health/fitness post which will be up in the course of the month. A little spoiler, I’ll give tips on how to manage weight after having a baby and share my diet as well as exercises I do right at the comfort of my home which help me stay in shape.
