I realized yesterday that it was possible that I was wearing "mom jeans."
I asked Jim, and he, of course, refused to make any negative comment on my appearance.
I am quite frustrated with my appearance these days: my hair, untanned body, jelly belly, and wider-than-usual hips.
My clothes don't fit right, my shirts are too tight, I still wear maternity panties, and I find myself in workout clothes and sporting a ponytail just about every day!
I decided to go ahead and buy a few clothes a size bigger while I'm "attempting" to lose the final baby weight. So, back to the mom jeans reference. I actually picked out these pair of jean capris because they were advertised to have a "comfort waistband" and when I tried them on sure enough I could squeeze all that loose jelly into the waistband without sporting a fat roll. (While I'm on the jelly belly topic, the c-section really kills the idea of ever having a flat tummy again.) As I wore these jeans last night, I really just felt like a "mom" in them with the comfort waistband holding me in tight.
So, this week in an effort to get out of my mom jeans quickly, I am heading back to the gym on Wednesday to work out with my trainer. I also hope to work out atleast one more time if Jim can get home in time to watch Grant. My gym does provide childcare starting at 6 weeks, but I'm a bit leary of exposing him to all the germs. I could certainly work out more if I took him with me.
Hopefully by the end of the summer, I'll be able to wear all my cute pre-baby clothes and can pitch my "mom jeans".
