Posted in date night, Note To Self | 6 Comments »

Before you plan a date night with your husband, make sure you fit into something besides yoga pants and a “I’m a pepper” t-shirt.

I am seriously bummed, eight weeks in and I can’t fit into a thing. I plan to lose the rest of the baby weight, so I really have no desire to buy something new. But since it’s winter, I need jeans and such. I have been wearing the same black preg pants since Baby Z arrived.

The sad thing is that I thought I was looking decent, but now I know how far I really need to go. And while I’m not one of those self-loathing women who hate themselves because they get fat, I am one of those women who likes to be thin. With my boobs, I have to be a small size to look small. Simple fact of life.

So off we go, Lance looking hip, me looking like I’m still pregnant.

  1. From Fidoz:

    Well could be worse. 2 days before my college graduation I tried on my cap & gown only to find out I had gotten too fat to fit in the gown I had ordered.

    At least you had a baby. I just had a bunch of donuts and cheesecake.

  2. From Nicole:

    The cookie dough I had earlier didn't seem to help things.

    Three weeks till Old 97's…my goal.

  3. From Cajun Cowgirl:

    I just had my first, so not too much experience, but I still can't really fit into old clothes. They just don't fit right if they fit at all. 7 months and baby weight is gone, but I'm ready to be as "firm" as I used to be! Good luck and just smile for a date night. You know Lance thought you were beautiful!

  4. From Nicole:

    Lance was very complimentary to me, which I so appreciate. And I was happy to have some alone time with him. I wouldn't trade this life for anything, but it is nice to have an actual conversation w/o our attention being pulled elsewhere. It was really a romantic night.

    Firm…good word! I'm not sure how many crunches I am going to need to do to get there! But I'll keep trying!

  5. From Lance:

    She honestly looked SUPER beautiful and hot. There were no compliments here.

  6. From Lance:

    That is supposed to say "no complaints here". Uh oh.
