So when I first started working out at the gym, I was 165 lbs and carried most of it in my belly. I got up to 189 lbs my first pregency, which is a lot on my frame considering I'm only 5'2. By the time I got serious about losing weight my youngest was about 2 and a half, so I was sort of amazed by the women I kept seeing dropping off small babies in the kids club. Like 3 month old babies and their tummies looked like they never gave birth!
I saw another mom who took the same yoga class and i did and said something like, "Aww she's so cute! I can't believe you just had a baby, you can barely tell!"
She glanced at my tummy and responded something like, "it just takes a little hard work and self control..."
At time I sort of laughed it off and left really quick but I will admit that bothered me. I was complimenting the woman and I couldn't help but feel kind of insulted by her response.
Fast forward to today, it's been about a year and I've lost 40 lbs and ill admit that my hard work is paying off and I'm looking pretty damn fit and toned. I saw the same lady in yoga today and I do believe I'm smaller than her. I know that it sounds vain, but I feel vindicated.
