Yesterday, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror — something I have tried to avoid doing for the last four months whenever possible. Much to my surprise, I noticed my waist. It was back.
Gone but not forgotten, I was glad to see a hint of my former pre-pregnancy self making an appearance. It gave me hope that perhaps maybe this kettlebell workout regime is actually doing something and that I have a chance to once again fit into my skinny jeans … eventually.
With my first baby, it took a solid seven months before I returned to my goal weight. The pounds came off faster with my second child for some unexplained reason. I don’t recall when I actually hit my goal weight with him, but I do know that I was able to pour my legs into my designer jeans for a girls night out with my sorority sisters when he was 9 weeks old. Sure, I had to hide the muffin top flopping over the waistband but by God, I was in them!
This year, I’d like to slim down in time for a wedding I am attending in April. It’s in Hilton Head and warm weather clothes with dimpled knees is not a good look for me. A C-section scar in a bathing suit isn’t so hot either but what’s a girl to do?
We shall see. At least it provides an extra incentive!
