I did it! I hit my stretch goal of losing 61 lbs to get down to 135 pounds! I actually haven’t really been trying to lose weight these last couple of weeks but I have settled in to a groove. I’m exercising regularly and trying to eat better. I still eat a lot of sweets (don’t hate the playa, hate the game) but they fill me up and I don’t eat as much of them. Consequently, I’m still losing weight!
One thing I have noticed though is that my body does not look the same as it did when I weighed 135 before I was pregnant. It’s true what they say – pregnancy really does change your body. And in my case, having a C-Section was a major factor too. I mean, they literally cut across your abs! No wonder it’s twice as hard to tone them up!
When I was 135 lbs before, I had a flat stomach and some definition (not a 6-pack but maybe a 3 pack…). Now, I have a sort of flat stomach with no definition and instead some saggy skin. It’s kind of frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful to be down at this weight again and that I can wear many clothes that I couldn’t before. But, I will probably never be able to wear a bikini again or a tighter shirt because they would show the muffin top.
But you know what? Having Munchkin and a muffin top is so much better than having flat abs and no Munchkin. She is worth the moon and the stars to me – so I can live with a little extra skin.
