Post-pregnancy Clothes

I did it. I bit the bullet and bought some non-maternity pants.

It’s not pretty, people. I’m two sizes larger in pants than I was pre-baby. Sigh. I was going to wait, but I’m getting tired of wearing my maternity pants. Seriously tired. I just bought a pair of jeans, so I’m still wearing maternity pants for work, but I guess I’ll start phasing those out too. At least the jeans I bought don’t make me look as large as I am.

On the bright side, when I was weighed in at my rheumatologist’s office yesterday my weight was the same was it was about a month ago at our weight loss class at work. Although, since I weigh-in at work with my shoes off, I’m hoping that having them on yesterday added a little bit. Maintaining or having a little bit of a loss is good considering I can’t do anything active right now with my knee problems. At least I’m not gaining. I wish I could find some kind of quick weight loss diet to lose the extra pounds, but I know those really don’t work in the long run. Slow and steady.

    I was just talking about this to my husband today! We’re headed to my nephew’s first birthday party this weekend, and I have *nothing* to wear…my maternity jeans are big and my regular jeans don’t fit yet. Good luck on the weight loss!

    im back on nutrisystem starting monday. i lost 12 pounds the first month last time. i dont like canned meat so im mainly doing the vegetarian option. considering we spend six hundred a month on groceries, i am actually saving money by doing it. it’s $269 a month and gets cheaper every month thereafter.

    Look at it this way…when you get pregnant again, you can wear these jeans during the early days of your pregnancy :). There’s no shame in not having all your weight lost at this point.

    oh my gosh, absolutely worth every penny. I bought a size up after Amelia and unfortunately, never got out of that size… but the bonus is, this time they fit soon after! And I am OK with that. I am not a skinny person nor will I ever be, and it’s important for me to feel comfortable in my clothing whatever the “number” of the size.
