Postpartum Blue Jeans

I have to celebrate with you fellow bloggers and blog stalkers.

I have been hitting the scale daily hoping to see some semblance of my pre-pregnancy body. Don't get me wrong, I love my new curves but I don't want to wear maternity clothes FORVER! Although, you may remember a time when I claimed that maternity clothes were awesome and I DID want to wear them forever. Times have changed.

I hit my pre-pregnacy weight about two weeks after Chloe's arrival. What I now realize: that weight does not allow me to fit into my old clothes. Pregnancy warps your body in strange and wonderful ways. So I stepped off the scale for a few days.

Today I tried on my old jean Capri pants (granted the largest size pants I own without elastic but whatever...). And...

THEY FIT!!! They are even a little baggy! So, I am well on my way to putting up the maternity clothes for a while (I hope).

Now, if the doctor would just clear me to run and lift. I want to start P90X again!


  1. Happy for you Kim getting back to the reality of life. It shouldn't be too long till you can take Chloe on a special ride. Has Mark lost his extra he might have gained? Most new Dads put on a few pounds too. Give Chloe a hug for me.

  2. Yippee!!! That didn't take long at all. It won't be long until you can warm up your running shoes.

  3. you give a girl HOPE! i know i just had abby but when my tummy started disappearing so quickly i got a little ahead of myself and tried on a few things to no avail, lol.

    congrats on getting out of the maternity clothes!!

    i can't wait to get the clear to workout!


Thanks for reading!
