this is what i look like almost 4 months after the birth of my son. i gained about 45 pounds while i was pregnant and stopped working out altogether. i was in really good shape before i got pregnant…i weighed about 140 or so and i am 5’6, but i worked out 5 days a week and had a lot of muscle tone….i quickly learned that is goes away quickly once you stop exercising. :) i am down to 152 right now (as of the pictures) but my pants are a lot more than 12 pounds away from fitting me..,.funny how that works :) anyway, i have started working out and i am eating really well so I hope to be back to my old size within a few months….but i’m being realistic. i got a few new stretch marks on my hips while i was pregnant and a couple on my inner thighs. i gained almost all my weight in my butt and thighs…i didnt look very pregnant at 9 months…people kept telling me that i only looked 5-6 months pregnant….but my normally bubble butt was EXTREMELY HUGE! and these thighs….well, lets not even talk about them! it was for a good cause though. i have the cutest, sweetest, most wonderful little baby boy in the whole world!
