After having a baby you should be focusing on your new family. The beauty of your baby, not the pooch on your belly. While some women will be back in their pre pg jeans in no time most women won't, if ever, be back in them. I have never been the size I was before I got pg with my first. I probably shouldn't have even been the size I was before I got pg. It took working out 3 times a week, no breakfast, only coffee, a lite lunch and most times no dinner. I was in my final semester of college and would be there from 6 am till 10 pm. I lost 25 lbs in 3 mos. I am sure I was the envy of women everywhere. I looked dreadful.
Now, while overweight, I am pretty happy with how I look. I am not sure I would give up my ample curves to fit in my pre pg jeans. It would be a tough choice. But apparently I am supposed to want to. And my body should be a rubber band, able to bounce back the moment a baby leaves my uterus. Well its not, nor should it be. We are women, not rubber bands.
