I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with my first child,a little boy. As excited as I am about his coming,I am wildly frustrated by my current shape and size!! Fashion is one of my great pleasures in life,but I don't even want to think of it while I have a physical deformity . Plus I have gained weight just about everywhere. I haven't posted here for quite a while...I thought I'd carry on doing bags,shoes and accessories while pregnant but I need to be dressed beautifully in order to want to wear new accessories too. Don't get me wrong...I have bought the prettiest and most flattering maternity wear i can find and I look after myself and do my best still to look good,but i cannot bring myself to buy anything really exciting. Fortunately I have enough bags and shoes and jewellery that I've never worn,to wear something new each week until my due date . In the meantime my shopping urges are satisfied by buying things for my little boy . Anyway,after this long intro....the day to which I look forward most is the day when I can start losing my bulk!! I need tips ladies...I'll be breastfeeding,so that's good for -500 calories a day...I'll be exercising (what exercise did you do?)....and I'll be busy,I suppose... Any hints,tips,stories about losing weight after baby??? I need ME back!!!
