On losing your post partum body

I've never been real happy with my lack-of-toned-abs or that air-leaking-kind-of-deflated spare tire around my belly which apparently got popped somewhere in the process of giving birth and is now completely deflated. With the joys of motherhood comes the price of dealing with some strange bodily changes.

For instance, no one ever told me that my wash, rinse, no need to repeat hair cleaning routine would now need that repeat.

That said, I was pretty proud of my self controlled, limited weight gain during the growth of the baby that is now "Baba" or more officially Marcus. I luckily lost it all the day I gave birth which felt pretty awesome. I refused to weigh myself during my entire 6 week post partum timespan because although I felt as if I had lost it all, I still couldn't squeeze into those pre-pregnancy jeans.

That first check-up revealed the truth that I had suspected, all the weight was lost. I never gave into believing that whole "breastfeeing makes the weight melt off" myth that some women are overjoyed with and others despise. But apparantly I can fall into the category of the overjoyed. Not to mention I've been wearing Marcus around most days for at least a couple of hours, including a mile long walk that we took the other day. My jazzersize routine of wrapping the baby, playing ABBA and making Bubs fall asleep has got to help with the calorie burning.

I'm currently weighing in at seven pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight, although those pre-pregnancy jeans still don't fit because once again no one ever told me that my hips apparantly would decide to be shape shifters.
