Same, I've put on 2 stone. :(
I’m the same, just feel so deflated 😞
I got so down about it recently i actually cried in middle.of primark and made my partner think i had delayed post natal depression. Ive ordered about 30 things off shein and sent 22 back. Ive managed to find some nice tops that i can show pics of if u like? Im a size 16 now id say with large upper arms that im trying to tone. Its my muffin top and bingo wings that make my overall look horrible
I am defo much bigger than pre pregnancy and as this is second baby nothing is shifting! I’m doing avoiding as much sugar as possible and doing some mum and baby spin/aerobics classes at the gym. The way I lost the weight and built muscle last time was lots of body weight exercises and using the baby as an extra weight. Got to build muscle after having a baby rather than going for it on the cardio because we lose a lot during pregnancy. I don’t want to be super skinny just strong and physically fit so I can keep up with my children! You are all amazing for growing a human and it takes time to for your body to get over the shock of it and get back to ‘normal’.
You’re not alone. I hate my current body and hate looking in the mirror. I don’t even have the support system for me to have time to workout. I’m 2 dress size up and my belly is still giving 4 months pregnant at a minimum. Annoyingly people feel the need to comment on my weight. I just stay home and hate having to go out. I’m force to miss all the events that are happening this year because I don’t feel comfortable in anything I put on. It’s a constant struggle
I could have written this 😩 I feel so disgusting!!!! My hair is so greasy, skin is awful and I just feel so uncomfortable in all my clothes it’s awful
I am the same! Being at home on Mat leave means I am eating more than I did when I was pregnant! Looking at this post and all the comments I don’t feel so alone in how I feel with my weight! X
Same here. I’m hating the way I look I’ve stopped going out
I’m the same. I just feel like I throw on anything I can find and I’m so fed up with the state I’m always in but I just get no time to do anything about it. You’re not alone x
You are not alone. I feel when looking in the mirror it’s completely someone different looking back then before.. I completely understand where your coming from trying things on etc. I think us women just have to be kind to ourselves. We have just gone through one of the most life changing experiences and the most amazing one at that and I just think try and accept it. You have introduced your workouts etc so in time you may start to feel like you again. Just try given yourself a break ✨
Same here 🙋🏻♀️ The amount of clothes I've ordered that are packed and ready to return is untrue. It's not even the weight I'm bothered about because I'm trying to be kind to myself, it's like I am in a new body! It's a new shape. My old clothes don't fit and I can't find clothes that do! It's made me upset a few times because I just feel like I live in leggings and jumpers. I think the nice weather is triggering it for me, because I wouldn't be bothered about jumpers in the winter!
I am the same. I went shopping today, and everything I tried didn't feel right. I want to exercise, but due to sleep depreviation, I am struggling to recover from exercising. I hate this PP period and feel like I have been putting too much pressure on myself for losing weight. I am hoping in few months things will be different :(
I've been struggling with this myself, I'm in the same dress size as before but theres alot of fat on my stomach I'm struggling to get rid of with exercise and diet, I was basically starving myself, and terrible advice I know, but one day I sort of was able to see the reality of the situation again, you still JUST had a baby, your body needs more time than this! It's ridiculous to think it will be the same immediately, I'm positive your body is amazing and not as different from before as you see it is ❤️ your hips are looking better than ever, your body is more womanly than it ever has been 🥳🥂 give yourself some credit and some extra months to let your body get itself bakc
You are not alone! I feel exactly the same! I find I’m living in leggings and gym clothes.. really hard to get clothes to fit my new shape that I like! Though I am trying to be kind to myself!!
Thanks for all the replies ladies - sad to see so many of you feeling the same but I guess it’s part and parcel of becoming a mum and our babies are worth it ❤️ hopefully one day soon we’ll all be feeling a little better about ourselves. I think for me, it was a very unsuccessful shopping day for summer clothes, and packing for a holiday next week where none of my old holiday stuff fits
