Myth? Not always...

I realize I am the luckiest person in the universe. After dealing with IF, that is... Easy pregnancy (the GD was very educational, and not a problem at all). Ideal delivery (the tearing wasn't great, but swapping quick for no tear? I'll take quick). Perfect, beautiful, amazing, happy baby. It couldn't get any better, right?

Well now, an unexpected gift. There are pants in my closet now in a size I haven't worn since I was in high school. I bought them last night, and they FIT! And not the "if I suck it all in and don't breathe or sit, I can wear these for a few minutes" kind of "fit." Nope, these fit with no muffin-top, no stressed seams, no un-done buttons. Comfortable.

I realize it doesn't work for everyone, but the combination of BFing and taking care of an infant (lots of walks... she loves being outside) CAN dramatically improve your physique. It's not a myth!

I am afraid of what will happen when she weans...

I sure hope it works for me too! I needed to lose about 20lbs after dealing with IF for 4 years, so I'm hoping twin turbo breastfeeding gets me there!

First up, CONGRATS on the small trousers!

Be vigilant for the weaning though. I lost a ton of weight BF and ate whatever the hell I liked, but when he weaned suddenly following an illness, I carried on eating like a pig and now my ass is lardy again and I'm MAD with myself!!!

Oh wow! How I wish I had lost weight!

Dealing with lack of time with the twin schedule and eating on the go has made me put on a few more lbs after loosing some post PG! I am gonna have to work so hard to get these lbs off!

Some times I wonder if I am going to end up on the "Biggest Looser"!
