I don’t remember the last time I weighed myself and I don’t think I ever wanna do it. I think I might be surprised whatever I’d see on that scale. Eversince I started my new work, I stopped pumping for my breastmilk and only latched the twins when I’m home. But then after that, I realized that I started gaining weight.
This was one of my OOTDs during my first week and I can’t wear this skirt anymore.
I know a few of my friends are just going to laugh this off and always tell me that I’m not gaining any weight or nothing has really changed. However, you won’t really see it or realize it until your clothes started to not fit you anymore.
Just this afternoon while I was getting ready, I changed about 10x because it felt like nothing good fits. I looked big. For someone who was used to always being skinny, that can fit to any clothing thrown at me, it was such a huge change. And then right then and there, I realized its already affecting my self esteem.
Some people tell me that it looks better on me though rather than seeing my old skinny self. I can’t fit into my XS sizes anymore and kept on returning clothes in Zalora because some doesn’t look good on me just like how they looked on the models. When I go to stores, the usual clothes that I don’t need to fit doesn’t look good anymore. I know it seemed like its such a petty problem but it’s kind of affecting me personally.
I do hope that I learn to embrace this change but also do something about it. I did try to do some home workouts about two weeks ago but I wasn’t able to sustain it. I felt super lazy. I was not interested at all. I hope I’d find time and interest to be active again. I also didn’t realize what breastfeeding had done to contribute on burning my daily caloric intake so I’d have to think about my diet for now. Gone are the days when you can just eat anything and let your young metabolism do its own magic. Or when you just lose weight without even trying. It comes to a point where your age contributes to it as well even if I’m only 31. Sigh. Food in the office are so good pa naman!
So guys, I need some suggestions:
1. What interesting workouts can you suggest that can fit my daily weekly schedule? I leave the house at 6am and am usually home by 8pm. It’s so hard for me to squeeze any workouts because by the time I get home, I’m already tired.
2. I loved Yoga and TRX when I used to be very active. That was before I got married and got pregnant! I am looking for ways how workouts can be interesting that I’d look forward to doing it again.
3. What diet is best when you don’t want to give up food? I never tried intermittent fasting but is it worth the try? Or is it best to limit the portions of food I’m eating instead?
Please keep them coming! 🙂
