Smaller Me

Back in February I blogged about having a Real Mummy Tummy. I dared to talk about celebrity Mum extreme weight loss post delivery and received some sharp criticism for it. Fair enough. I still stand by the fact that it’s silly the lengths that celebrity Mums go through to get back to pre-baby shape. Yes, some are blessed with good genes but most are blessed with loads of support, help and crazy diets. Anyhoo…I digress.

I’ve made no secret about the fact that I continue to be well overweight and very unhappy with my body nearly six months post delivery of Sam. I have not dieted. I really have not exercised. I tend to wallow in “woe is me” more often than not and then don’t do anything about it. I’m also battling PND and trying to claw my way back to me. Being ill with pneumonia in April made me take stock and realise that there are more important things in life. As the anti-depressants kicked in, I began to feel more myself. In recent days I have been wondering if maybe, in fact, I have lost a teeny bit of weight.

So today, while trawling through my ginormous photo library on the laptop, I stumbled across this photo which I used in the February “Real Mummy Tummies” post. I decided to put on the same top and take a new photo nearly 3 months on…what do you think??











Still not where I want to be by any means. Still mistaken for being pregnant by strangers. BUT, definitely a smaller me! Will wonders never cease!

    Karin you have definately lost weight since February it is very clear to see. don’t be too hung up on it, it will come off with time. I agree with oh about celebs and their perfect figures post bay but I wouldn’t want t feel that pressure to get myself back in To shape so fast. Xxx

    Definitely lost weight, go you! These things take time unless you starve and have a personal trainer (or even better a friend who just happens to be a plastic surgeon), so don’t beat yourself up about it 😉

    Well done my dear. Looking great. Everything is coming together for you in all ways. It all takes time. Haven’t lost the 10 pounds I gained with you! Waiting for that to happen too. ; – )
    Love you…
