I am 6 months post partum and I am finally starting to feel good in my clothing, isn't that crazy?
We need to stop allowing the world to tell us when we should be back to "normal".
I don't have money to pay someone to consistently train me and tell me what to eat. I'm doing the things my gym offers and my life allows. Doing your best is better then doing nothing at all.
I have loose skin because I rapidly grew the first few months I was pregnant and put on 30lbs pretty quickly. Everyone at 6 months would ask if I was due any day now, my answer was always nope 3 more months.
C-sections are no fucking joke, you are sliced open in an area you use to do a lot of things, sitting up being one of them. And honestly you don't realize how much of those muscles you use until you can't use them or it hurts to do so.
Before I got my membership I felt like I was never going to look good again, my ass was flat [still kind of is 🤦🏽♀️], my love handles were huge and I just felt like shit in general. Going to the gym has helped me so much feel better, and eat better because let's be real who wants to eat the little calories they burn during a workout. You eat better, you drink more water, and you exercise you look and feel better.
Now I'm starting to feel better in my clothing and old stuff is getting a little less snug but it took me 6 months and it will take even longer for me to get where I want to be.
I don't feel pressured I just know I can do better and look better.
But I just wanted to put this out there for anyone who felt like they aren't living up to societies standards, because honestly society isn't living up to my standards now a days so fuck society.
What do/did you do to make yourself feel better after baby?
