Tomorrow Oscar has a playdate with Darwin.

I'm nervous.

Not because our children will be playing together (as much as an 8-week old plays, lol!), but because it will be the first day I will not be wearing maternity pants. I am going maternity-waistline-less for the first time since August, 2008.

I'm in that awkward stage where I've got about 10 lbs to go. My mat clothes don't fit. My normal clothes don't fit. I have low self-esteem and horrendously low body image right now.

I have a flabby belly and dimples on my ass.

For the first time in my life.

And I find it quite disgusting.

Worth it:

But still disgusting. I loved my body before pregnancy. I loved it EVEN MORE during pregnancy. But after?

Not so much.

I just want to fit into a size two four again.

I'd even take a six for a little while.

As much as I love yoga, it does nothing for the waistline. And I'm not into Bikram's. I'd die.

And my stroller is not made for speed walking - poor Oscar, it'd feel like he was on an amusement park ride!

I know it's only been 8 weeks, but God, I just want my body back. (Except the boobs... I'll keep these ones thank you!!)

Lose the stroller, get a baby carrier (Baby Bjorn or similar). You walk faster, can take stairs, and burn more calories from carrying the extra weight of the baby. Although, as you'll see later today, I still need to lose 10 lbs myself...

I'm not one to comment on how to lose post-baby weight since I look like I've had 5 kids without ever having been pregnant! Ha ha!

There are strollers out there meant for joggers, bumpier terrain (the 3 wheeled ones that look a bit like dragsters!). I like Lexi's idea too of carrying his weight, although that won't last for long as the little dude grows, lol!

Are there baby-and-me exercise groups in your area? Those look cute, and makes the baby part of your exercise routine.

That's it from me. :)

You're gorgeous at every weight...honestly. The ass will come back.

Who links to me?
