I thought this extra weight would really bother me. I'm really short, about 5 one, and a half-ish. So I look like a total porker with even a little weight.
For some reason I just don't care. It's weird!!! I've always watched what I ate and been very fit, and ever since I got pregnant I quit caring. I thought I'd get all motivated post partum, and I'm not.
I bought new clothes that fit my new body, and I'm good with that. I get out and walk a lot and am always on the go cleaning and attending moms groups. I try and eat in moderation like before but I'm not even attempting to "diet." I'm even allowing myself the extras like soda that just add extra calories and sugar and don't fill me up or provide any nutrition.
I don't think I look bad! I suppose I am not officially "overweight" by I look like a mom! I am a mom, with a baby and I intend to get knocked up again!
Am I losing it or something? Should this be bothering more than it is? I mean, I'm not sitting on my butt eating potatoe chips all day on the couch or anything, but I'm not making time for workout videos like I thought I would either!
You know it might be because you want more kids and soon. I wasn't very motivated inbetween mine either . But now that we are done I want my old body back lol or well at least as close as my stretched marked saggy belly can get. If you are happy and health then who cares just ejoy your new mom body.
Thats what I say! If you dont care then just go with it! Im sure you look great anyways. I dont want to look like Im back in high school. I am a mother and proud of it! But I do want to be in shape. At least a little bit.

I feel the same way, I am so unmotivated to exercise. I am still a good 30lbs heavier than when I got married, I'd like to lose at least 15lbs and get down to 150, but I'm only 16lbs away from that goal. I wish I could still shed the preggo weight as fast as I did the first month PP.
I have joked to Mike about how I should just get pregnant again so I'd have a good excuse for the extra pounds LOL.. perhaps I shouldn't jynx myself though.
Hey though seriously, if you're totally satisfied then SWEET. I wish I could be totally satisfied..
I think that is awesome that you feel that way! Way to love your body!
I was feeling sooooo unmotivated at first but that was mainly because I was stressed and slightly depressed. But now Im all up for the losing weight. Im a single mom and I wanna get back into the dating scene...ugh, it gets tough but Im tired of being lonely.
Im not planning on having anymore babies anytime soon so I NEED to lose this weight.
