Well, besides wanting to lose the baby weight, I will say that exercising has helped with my “we were robbed” blues. Gotta keep those endorphins up. This is part of the batch I taped right before my move. Enjoy the last looks at my old house. And half of that furniture is in storage.
But, about my waistline…
Pretty soon I’ll be getting used to NOT being pregnant. Each transition is a mind and body adjustment. Lately, my adjustment has been to feed my face to my hearts content. It will come off with nursing… I hope.
A couple of weeks ago, Miss Cheryl Tiegs was our guest on The Fashion Team. In addition to be being a modeling legend and judge on the reality show, “True Beauty” (guilty pleasure), she also has her own skin care line.
In the above picture, you will see how good she looks. She is still a beauty and I think she is almost 20 years older than me, and look at her. She looks younger than I do. She gave Lawrence (co-host) and me some of her wrinkle cream saying, “It really works,” and we have been slavishly slathering it on since.
Now, I don’t expect to be a Sports Illustrated model like her, but I asked her about how it was for her post-pregnancy in regards to her body (she has a son in high school). She said it took her 6 months to lose the weight. That made me feel better. Because I would half-expect someone like her to do it in 6 days. I’m at two months now, so I will try not to totally freak out till I’m past the Tiegs threshhold.
Today, the Momversation ladies dig into a big pile of “Did this baby make me fat?” When it comes to baby weight, where does the wear-and-tear of pregnancy end and personal responsibility start? Maggie Mason of Mighty Girl starts the conversation.
