Jack will be 10 months old in a few days, and I haven’t really done anything about my post pregnancy body.
I realize that I only made it to my 28th week of pregnancy, and shouldn’t have gained that much weight, but I did.
As of this moment I am approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, I weigh 163lbs, and I am very unhappy with my body.
Until recently, I simply avoided mirrors, and tried not to think about my body. I tried not to think about what other people thought of my body either.
Lately though, I have been feeling especially down in the dumps with my weight. I’m well outside of my comfortable weight range. I feel like I’m outside of my husbands comfortable weight range too. Not that he has said anything, he’s been rather sweet and sympathetic actually, but that’s just it, I don’t want him to be sympathetic about my body.
My mother was outside of her own comfortable weight range, for most of my life. Granted she carried 3 healthy babies to term.
But I just remember her always feeling bad about her weight, and my dad being sympathetic.
I want to feel good about my body, and I want my husband to feel good about my body.
