my post partum body - my anniversary...

David and I will celebrate three years of wedded bliss on Tuesday, June 2nd.  We are celebrating tonight though : )  We are going to Red Prime Steakhouse downtown.  Neither of us have ever been there, so we are excited! We have a sitter for the bug and are ready for a night out just the two of us.  Marriage is such a blessing.  It has it's ups and downs, but at the end of the day - David is the best thing that has happened to me (Paige comes a close second!).

We had a beautiful wedding in Maui, HI on June 2nd, 2006.  We also had a reception at home that was so much fun, but nothing will beat that day!

These are of me - 5 weeks post partum.  Yuck.  I have lost 35 pounds (remember, I only gained 30), but my body is so different.  My stomach is mush.  I just don't look good.  Forget getting in a swim suit.  NOT HAPPENING! However - I am doing something about it.  I hate when people complain about their body, but do nothing to change it.  I started working out again last week and Monday I will start eating better (I refuse to start a diet the day I am going out to celebrate my anniversary!!).  I want to lose 10 pounds, lose my love handles, and get that pre-marriage and baby stomach back! Wish me luck : )

A) Happy Anniversary! Your wedding pictures are gorgeous!

B) You look AMAZING! Seriously!

I, too am trying to lose a bit more. I gained 20 with my pregnancy, but I had gained a good 20 before that from IF treatments. I've lost about 25-30 so far. I'd love to lose another 10. I'm starting the 30-day shred. I hope that at the very least, it will tone up some of this flab. Good luck!

Jill - weight is all from infertility! Another reason to hate it!!! : )

I think you look fantastic! Seriously. I look way worse and I haven't even had a kid. I can thank the IVF drugs and PCOS combo for my chubby tummy now. :(

Happy anniversary!

Your wedding pics are gorgeous, congrats on your anniversary. I think you look fabulous but I hear you on the belly flab. Good luck!

No worries Megan. I promise the mushy tummy will firm up before you know it, just by running around after that little precious. Then BOOM, one day you'll wake up and see your abs again without even really having tried. It's a beautiful thing! Just be patient and healthy.
