I know Heidi Klum and many other genetically blessed mamas are back in their skinny jeans just weeks after giving birth, but my body doesn't like to give up weight that easily.
For me the rule seems to be, 9 months to pack it on, 9 months to work it off.
With Cam I put on a solid 43 pounds.
Now that it's finally off, I thought it would be good to post some before pics to remind me to go easy on the Twinkies next time I'm pregnant.
Big Mama carrying Cam in my belly
9 months later carrying him in my arms.
Chubby chipmunk cheeks at a restaurant 7 months prego with Cam
9 months later the "cheek swelling" has gone down : )
Somebody probably should've told me to put down the cake (8 months prego)
And here I am 2 months after he was born,
still holding on to 25 extra pounds
8 months of Weightwatchers, a 5K, 10K and half marathon later and I'm finally ready to get back in my bathing suit : )
Of course it was all worth it for this guy.
Who wouldn't pack on 43 lbs to get this? : )
