I’ve gone under my pre pregnancy weight. It is a decent amount of weight but I feel more excited about getting closer to double digits. I did this after Matisse was born but with the stress of not getting pregnant initially and generally being flat I ate my feelings. The kilos clocked quickly.
It almost seems like this milestone is a rebirthing of sorts. Now is where the real story begins.
You see I was well on my way when I started to seriously consider my health. I’d complain to friends about how awful I was feeling and get the exact response I would give ‘you’ve just had a baby, give it time’. It was when I was asking myself these questions that I thought the time had come
Should I really be eating another block of chocolate?
If I’m eating this much food and not putting on weight then surely I must be chewing through calories?
What is exercise? I’ve forgotten
Wait! I think I can see my feet
I was in overeaters heaven but I felt like crap and I was stiff and creaky. My body needed to be nourished and I was essentially torturing it by not moving and eating junk.
So I will celebrate the 20Kg by kissing my five month old. Thanks for giving me a new lease on life Willow. Now let’s move on to the next 20!
I’m counting my weight loss from where I started with you all as I had already dropped almost 12Kg at that stage. It’s nice to celebrate the difference in my body post baby but I’m so much more excited about hitting double digits again.
Weight loss this week: 800g
Weight loss so far: 8.4Kg
