Baby2 is two months old this week, and I still have twenty more pounds to lose. I look like I'm still six months pregnant, and none of the old postpregnancy clothes from Baby fit me. I won't even go near prepregnancy items. The other day I tried to put on an old pair of pants (a larger pair), and I couldn't even get them up over my thighs. It was laughable.
Everyone says breastfeeding will just melt the pounds away. Ha. I think I'm in the rare category where that doesn't work. I'm starving all the time and even though I'm trying to eat healthier, it doesn't seem to be working.
I was really excited after Baby2 was born because the pounds just disappeared during the first couple of weeks. I was dropping about a pound a day. Then I plateaued.
Have you seen the workout informercials for P90X, Insanity, etc? Well, I purchased HipHop Abs. I am determined to get my stomach flat by August at the very latest. I am currently on week 3. While I'm not seeing results as quickly as I hoped I would, I did lose one more pound. That's progress, right? I'm assuming I'm also building muscle in the meantime, so it's balancing out.
I know it took me nine months to pack on the pounds, so I'm not expecting results over night. It would just be nice if they came at a quicker pace. I want to be able to wear my old clothes again. I think they miss me.
