Or is it the breastfeeding?? Most likely my perspective and attitude! I'm still 10 lbs away from pre-preg weight, but lately I'm feeling really good about where I'm at w/ my "shape". :) I went for a run tonight (a SHORT one) and wore prepreg running garb.. a tank and a pair of shorts! I wanted to wear a sign that said, "I had twins THREE months ago!" Not as an excuse for my appearance, but to brag about my appearance!! WOW! That is the FIRST time in my ENTIRE life I've ever felt like bragging about my appearance! I'm just so amazed to have my waist back already.. I'm sure having boobs doesn't hurt my attitude! :0 Sure makes my waist look small.
So to you preggos out there that are worried about your body going to shit after this... fear not.. there is a chance you will feel even better afterward. Don't get me wrong.. things w/ my body are certainly different.. when I sit down my once flat belly now kinda rolls over the tops of my pants.. these days more b/c of skin than fat, but hey.. I look good when I stand up .. oh, and hold my tummy in.
All in all I feel good! AMAZINGLY good. And running is going well. I dont' feel like I'm starting ALL over again... my body remembers. I'm trying to take it really easy b/c I don't want to be really wiped out at night or the next day when I have to do baby duty all day... being physically exausted really isn't an option at this point. I run walk, but when I'm running I feel great and like I could run longer, but like I said, i don't want to push it. I feel there may actually be another half marathon in my future... or dare I say another marathon somewhere down the road. Maybe I'll even do that triathlon I keep saying I'm going to do.
The best news is that "I still got it".. and I don't mean my shape... I mean my ability/desire to keep on running and being active. I saw a guy on the trail running along side his kid on his bike.. some day Jason, Lily and I can do that.. w/ Phoebe too!
Okay... enough rambling... damn... getting out on my own has turned my attitude around.
