I hate to admit this but I am still wearing my maternity clothes 10 weeks post partum. I'm beginning to think I'll never fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes. I have lost the majority of my pregnancy weight, but my body doesn't resemble its old self in any way, shape or form. I gained a total of 60 lbs when I was pregnant and I have since lost a total of 54 lbs. My weight loss sounds impressive but I have a long way to go before I can wear any of my old shorts or spaghetti strap tank tops. I think bikinis are a thing of the past.
I look alright with a long sleeved shirt and pants on. Good thing it's winter. It's when I take off my clothes it's scary. I definitely have a cellulite problem. Don't let me fool you, I have always had a cellulite problem but now it's out of control. My stomach has the consistency of a bowl of mashed potatoes. No rock hard abs for me. My thighs are a little on the lumpy side.....they have the consistency of a bowl of lumpy mashed potatoes.
I am 28, about to turn 29 so I can't kid myself thinking I should have the body of a 19 year old. I'm not a young little thing anymore. But I can't believe that I've resorted to wearing mom jeans. Yes, as I sit here typing I am wearing a pair of mom jeans. I have on a pair of Gloria Vanderbilt jeans that my mom picked up from Costco for $10.99. They come up past my rib cage. Seriously, they sit a good inch and a half up from my belly button. Apparently, style was the first thing to go when I became a mom. But man, they are comfortable. I guess I should be happy they aren't maternity pants. I only own three pair of pants that I can squeeze into that aren't made for pregnant ladies. I had to break down and buy new pants before I came back to work. The only thing is they're 3 sizes bigger than my pre-pregnancy pants and come up to my chest.
