This is my 2nd child. I did alot better with him than with my first, especially on my weight gain, healthier food intake and staying somewhat active.
My son is now almost 4 months old. Granted I've lost most of my pregnancy weight. But my body hasn't (and wont for another 5 months or so) lose it's roundness in the mid section. This is so frustrating because I don't even feel comfortable wearing regular clothes. Unless it's stretchy I feel like my stomach is buldgin out. And it's summer time, so I don't feel comfortable in a bathingsuit. I hate wearing one of those 'mom' suites with a skirt and oversized to hide it all. Especially when I have a new black and white polka dot bikini (halter top and brief bottoms) sitting in my dresser drawer.
Before I ever had kids, I looked awesome! 5'8 150 lbs. I've always been curvy. But I had a smaller waist. I never had to work out, didn't have to put forth the effort to stay small. Now, I'm just stuck. I can't seem to find any motivation to get up and work out, or go to the gym. I'm the type that I have to have someone else with me to excersize or else I lose interest quickly. Sadly, majority of my friends have their own lives (different from mine) or don't live around here.
I desperately need some encouragement and advice on how to be self motivating. Or easy work outs that i can perhaps do with my children, that isn't extremely time consuming.
Please no rude comments. This is a touchy subject for me. I need POSITIVITY! Thanks ladies!
