There’s something that I am afraid of. I’m not talking about roller coasters or spiders (*flails wildly*), I’m talking about failure.
Yes, I realize it has been six months since my son was delivered via c-section. I never thought it would take this long or be this much work to get back into my pre-pregnancy jeans. It’s been a bit disheartening seeing other moms get back to their pre-pregnancy size, or even smaller, months before I have. But, it’s time to put all that behind me because it’s my time now – I DID IT! Today I was able to button my pre-pregnancy jeans!!!
I was really hoping that by now I’d be able to comfortably fit into my pre-pregnancy pants. I can button them! I just can’t breathe.
I’ve been working out once/day (sometimes twice!) for the past few weeks and have lost inches…but not enough off of my waist.
Have you tried the 30-Day Shred workout DVD by Jillian Michaels? I first tried it before my wedding and it definitely delivers. I figured that since I’m in much worse shape post-baby and c-section, I might as well give it a shot.
I completed day two of level one today and my muscles are screaming for mercy! My ab muscles have never burned so much during a workout. I find myself cursing my c-section during every ab-focused portion. Argh. I’m glad that I’ve done this before, because I remember that days two and three are the most difficult.
I was going to wait until after my 6-week checkup with my OBGYN on Thursday, but I couldn’t wait any longer – I joined WeightWatchers Online and got started! Their PointsPlus program has a breastfeeding option, so I figured it was okay to start it since I’m not depriving myself of what I need to keep producing milk for C.
