Pounds gained, pounds lost

Okay so tomorrow is Thanksgiving day. (By the way, Happy Thanksgiving to you all!) It is the day I will eat a lot of goodies and all. Is it healthy? Nope but I'm going to enjoy my delicious meals.

If you're wondering, yes I've lost 19 pounds already. I found out how much I've lost about two weeks ago when I had to see the doctor (for my 6 weeks "healing" period).

Oh yes! I really, really did looked pregnant after I gave birth!! But only a few people saw me like that. I've gained a total of 32 pounds. It's been 7 weeks now and I'm starting to notice my stomach is shrinking down but it isn't to my exact size yet. In order for me to be the same exact size I was before getting pregnant, I need to lose 13 more pounds. I don't know how or when that will happen. I haven't been able to exercise yet or anything but then I haven't exercise in years. The only thing I am doing now is breast-feeding. I'm told that'll help lose some weights. Only time will tell if I will ever get back to my same size.

Just out of curiosity about my baby fat, I asked the nurse if my hips will go back the way they were or if my tummy will shrink back to where it was. She said "no" because it's part of being a mom or something like that. Okay, I understand that but... for real?? Really?? Are you serious?? I'm never going to go back to my original size? Are you saying I have to get rid of all the clothes that don't fit me anymore?? I have a hard time believing that. I know this was only one person's opinion. But it's making me wonder... What if I did exercise and all, do you think I'll get back to my normal size? Because she said "no", I am determined to prove her wrong. But then, she could be right. *sighs*

Yep, my zipper skirts doesn't fit anymore. I have a hard time zipping it but my elastic skirts fit just fine. Most of my clothes are too tight now and my hips has gotten big which make it hard to fit into some of my clothes. Although, I've noticed after a few weeks later, I've tried on the same clothes that were tight and noticed that I can almost fit into them again... well, almost! I just can't zip completely... yet.

I know that this is all part of motherhood and I'll have to admit that having Joanna is worth it!
