A few days ago I stayed at my parent’s house. Since they have been so good to me I decided to help them with some work outside. The problem was I didn’t bring any clothes that were suitable for yard work, so my Mother found me some. Now I am not bragging (well, maybe a little) but my Mom pulled out a pair of size 2 shorts that I had bought when I was 20 (she has a bit of a problem with holding onto things but it hasn’t gotten bad enough where she needs her own reality show…..yet). I FIT INTO THEM!!! My Mom stopped and said, “You make me sick. It took me 6 years to get my baby weight off and you have done it in a few weeks!” I was thrilled. Then she gave me an old faded beer t-shirt that I had given my Dad 10 years ago. Perhaps I should reconsider that reality show?????
To all my pregnant friends here is my advice (not that I think it is worth a lot) eat right. Some women think just because they are pregnant it is a pass to eat whatever they want, not true. Eat healthy things and watch your portions. Stay active. I was walking at least a mile up until 2 days before I had my baby. Finally, breast feed! Talk about melting the pounds off, that will definitely do it.
I have lost most of my baby weight but am still out of shape so next week I am starting P90X! Will keep you posted on how that goes.
