The last two months and a bit have been a good (and at times hard) time for me weight and health wise, I am officially down to the weight I was before I fell pregnant with Charley which is a HUGE milestone for me.... I honestly didn’t think it was possible! My next goal is to get to the same weight I was before I feel pregnant with Ollie – I never got there after he was born and carried that weight until I fell pregnant with Charley. I think because I knew I wanted another baby I wasn’t too worried about the weight because I would put it all back on again... But we have decided that two kiddies are enough and we are done (I reserve the right to change my mind later) so I am on a mission to feel like ME again. It’s amazing to me how weight can affect so much of who I am.... I didn’t feel like myself, I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin and I didn’t feel like I knew how to dress at all – my style changed considerably after Ollie and Charley and I found myself feeling frumpy and not quite knowing how to change that. I HATED shopping and would end up in tears after trying something on that I was sure would look amazing that ended up looking horrible.
Already, 13kgs down I feel like me again and I am starting to itch for a good old shopping spree – I want to get to my second goal before then BUT I am enjoying pulling out my pre-preggy clothes and trying them on.
This top was my absolute favorite top before Ollie was born and I wore it yesterday!! Happy heart!
(can you spot the photo bomber?)
This is another outfit that I missed - my jean fit beautifully and I tended to steer away from jeans after the kiddies because they were uncomfortable. Before kids I LIVED in jeans....
Mike has been such a major roll in this journey and although we still have a way to go I feel like is possible!
