First of all, thank you so much for your kind words on my last post. You guys sure know how to make me feel good =). To be honest with you, I haven’t done anything trying to lose weight. I am very fortunate that I am one of those lucky people who have a fast metabolism. I gained 25 pounds with my first pregnancy. I left the hospital with only 5 pounds left to lose. I eventually lost all of my baby weight within 3 weeks.
What I am wearing:
Jacket: Ann Taylor - size 0P (buy similar)
Pants: Old Navy Rockstar denim - size 2
Shoes: Target suede wedges (buy similar)
Tee: H&M - size 4 (buy similar)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Gayla
With my second pregnancy, I have gained 20 pounds. I was 98 lbs pre-pregnancy. I was 118 lbs right before I delivered. After I came home from the hospital, I weighted 113 lbs. I wasn't disappointed but surprised. I thought for sure I would lose more than 5 lbs. I have been told it's harder to lose weight after your second baby compared to the first. Surprisingly, I dropped 1 lb a day for the past 2 weeks. I weighted myself this morning and I am currently at 103 lbs. I still have 5 more pounds to lose but I am in no hurry to lose my baby weight. To answer your questions about weight loss – I did nothing - no diet, no exercise! All credits go to breastfeeding and a good metabolism.
I gave birth to baby Madelyn via a C-section and it was incredibly tough on me. I have never experienced that much pain in my life. I was basically begging for pain meds for the first 2 weeks. This is the first week that I'm finally off the pain meds. Exercise is out of the question even if I want to. My body may weigh what it did pre-pregnancy but it certainly doesn't look or feel like it did. My OB told me to wait at least 6 weeks after surgery to start an exercise routine. I will certainly share my tips when I am up for it.
Today’s outfit consists of several old pieces that I bought last year. To be honest, I am super thrilled to be able to wear my “normal” clothes that have been shoved aside for months and months. I don’t mind a bit if they’re “old” =)
