I recently read a blog that referred to the "wobbly bits" of a well-known actress. Clad in an itty-bitty bikini, the actress looked strikingly normal with cellulite on her thighs along with a little jiggle - amazing what some airbrushing and clever wardrobing can do to hide those wobbly bits. It made me wonder though if that actress obsesses as much as I do over my less-than-toned parts these days.
I'm still fighting 5-10 lbs. of baby weight. I have been less than diligent in my quest to get back into the gym, but I'm working on it. Unfortunately, this means none of my summer clothes from last year fit. Even more unsettling for me is that even though I was able to pull on my 7 for All Mankind jeans yesterday, my pudgy tummy was hanging over the sides and I was sporting a dreadful muffin top. ACK!
I have to admit, I certainly don't look horrible. Ryan is loving all my new curves (I reminded him that if I stay at this weight, I'll have to replace my wardrobe - I don't think he'd be too happy about that). People have complimented me on how good I look for having an 11 week old child. I'm often reminded of the theory that it took me 9 months to put the baby weight on, so I can't expect to lose it quickly. But I feel all at of sorts right now and I want my body back.
The lawyer in me wants to present you with some evidence to bolster my case. Yes, I'm about to expose my wobbly bits. I had Ryan take some "after" pictures (as in 'body after baby' pictures) this evening. We'll compare those to my 'before' pics. This is why I'm all in a tizzy these days.
The after pictures...
And the before picture, which I can proudly say has not been retouched!
It's amazing what difference 10 lbs can make. But I'm working on it. Really. Gotta get rid of these wobbly bits!!!
