Just to share…
When I was still pregnant, I forgot to watch my weight because i craved for a lot of food.. Actually, to be more precise, I craved ice cream, cakes and everything sweet and cold =) And my being bedrest for the last trimester didnt help either. I was confined to a bed 24/7. The closest to excercise that I had was to walk from my bed to the bathroom which was like 10 steps away! Sheesh!!
Just so you know, before i got pregnant, i weighed 105 lbs. I was slim and i was always in tight jeans and mini shorts!! Then on my ninth month, during my checkup, i weighed 145 lbs!! That’s 40 lbs in nine months and mind you, my height barely reaches 5 feet. So I was really really fat!!
I actually looked like this after i gave birth:
I seriously looked like a baby killer whale.
But then, motherhood came. It was so demanding that i sleep an average of two hours a day. I had the baby blues so i wasn’t eating that much too. Also I breastfed for six weeks.
And then come seven weeks postpartum, i look like this:
Pero, although i lost 25 pounds already, mataba pa din ako. I now weigh 120 lbs but all of my clothes still do not fit. I still wear my maternity shorts and thankfully i have lots of dresses so i wear them all the time.
Im still working on losing at least the remaining 10 lbs.
