Shrink, placenta, Shrink!


Spill your secrets.  How did you lose the weight after the baby?

Like everything else I could’ve possibly tried to do in life, I was overly optimistic about my post-partum weight loss.  I thought that, once I popped Tony out, the weight would just fall off.  Then I realized that I’d have to work on it, but I was like, “Eh.  I’ll just workout in between feeding the baby.”  I did not realize how incredibly EXHAUSTING having a newborn is!

(Of course, I constantly have to remind myself that it’s only been two weeks.  Nay, not even that.)

So extreme dieting is out (low-carb, I bid thee farewell), as are pills (sorry, Zantrex 3).  The good news is that all I’m craving is salads and fruits; the bad news is that it’s not easy to always have those available.  It’s been too cold to take many walks with the bebe, so I’ve done Pilates.  Once.  And it nearly killed me.

So spill.  What are your secrets?
