Bikini after baby?

Momentous occasion: Bring out the brew!

I am proud to say that I lost all of my pregnancy weight!

I would like to take this time to thank my son, the Little Dude, for sucking the calories away from me with the intense nursing when he was a newborn. If it hadn’t been for him, I would not have lost 30 lbs in the first 2 weeks of his life. Mind you, I wouldn’t have gained 44 lbs to begin with. Maybe I should rethink this thanking.

I would like to thank the Value Drug Mart for bestowing upon T last January a $4000 scholarship, which I promptly used my powers of persuasion (aka I am having your baby, ergo you do this for me NOW) to get T to buy an elliptical cross-trainer.

I would also like to thank my friend and neighbour, Lynn, who had supper with me and our brood of kids while T was in Ottawa. Thanks to her meals, which always included a great portion of green leafy goodness, I finally tipped below the 130 lbs mark, which I have been above since Christmas 2005.

Thank you to my mother for giving me good genes in the body-after-baby department. I owe you BIG.

And lastly, thank you to my dear husband for allowing me to lounge in our backyard pool and parents’ hot tub wearing this:

  1. Great. Just in time to start chunking up for number 2. And no, I’m totally not bitter or jealous just because I’ve never been able to pull off a bikini, before or after baby. Damn you and your skinniness!

  2. Quick note: Don’t hate me!
    I had purchased my first ever bikini the summer before I got pregnant, and wore it while I was a camp director and we were doing lake stuff (maybe 4 times, tops). Other than that, I have NEVER had the confidence to wear one. Now, I figure I’ve got nothing to lose, and if people don’t like it, they don’t have to look 😛
