So, operation lose the baby weight by my birthday (which is 12 days away) is not going so hot. I have been eating pretty healthy, which used to be enough. But I am quickly realizing that it is going to take some more exercise to lose these last 4 lbs. And exercise is not something I am good at, nor do I have much spare time for. The Husband is really sweet, he thinks I look exactly the same as I used to, but only about half my pants button at the moment so I know there is a little chub to get rid of. He actually didn't believe me until I showed him my sweet muffin top from buttoning my old jeans.
The bigger problem is that I HATE all of my clothes. It has been almost a year and a half since I really bought anything new - when we started trying to have a baby I stopped buying new clothes because I didn't know how long I would fit into them. I don't know what it is about my wardrobe but it all seems boring and out of date! Both my work wardrobe and my casual clothes suck!
I plan on shopping on my birthday for some new stuff (I saved up a bunch of gift cards from Christmas) but I am not sure what I want my style to be. And my new Pinterest obsession is not helping. Who are these people that have time to Polyvore an outfit, down to all the accessories? I am lucky if I even remember to put on my wedding ring in the morning! And I am wondering if I should accept my body with these new lbs and just buy stuff that fits or if I will lose some more?? I know 4 lbs doesn't sound like a lot, but for me it means I need to buy the next size up from what I used to wear. Or get one of those button extenders! HA!
Readers, did you fee like this post-baby? Did you hate your wardrobe???
