Is my husband kidding? Seriously. . .

My husband thinks that if I eat well and exercise regularly, I can have my 20 year old body. WTF!?! I can rewind the two c-sections, defy gravity, and spit in mother natures eye, right? What do you think? Is he right, or stupid, crazy, and insensitive?

  • Turn the question back on him. Tell him to do it and see if his twenty year old body comes back. If he manages it you will give it a try.

  • Exercise and eating well is all fine and great but it's not gonna make our stomach look like it did before we have children. He must have hit his head.

  • We are always debating, that if I was serious about looking like I did when I was 20, I would eat better and exercise more. I wear a bodybugg. I am at the gym 5 times a week. I dance 2 times a week. I have had a trainer, twice. I see a nutrionist and take natural vitamins. I can't remember when I ate a carb. And YET. . . . for him, that is not serious enough. Granted I barely eat. I AM BUSY!!!! I hate to eat. I am always getting up, my food is cold, kids talking, spilling and throwing food, so I inhale it with a lump in my throat, because I don't enjoy eating with my kids. It's called being a mom.

  • Turning the question on him!?! He has been the same underweight since high school. He can eat whatever he wants, and he is still underweight. That's why I get so mad when he says this to me. He seriously tells me I can get my old body, if I really wanted to.

  • you need to tell him to eat shit! you are beautiful the way you are. i had a c section too and everything changes. i hate my tummy. but my partner loves me the way i am, i gave up my body so we could have a baby. and i would not change that, EVER. he needs to grow up. good job for going to the gym and taking good care of yourself! you are awesome momma!!
