This was three days after Breezy was born a year ago. Aside from the fluids they pumped into me pre and post c-section I weighed approx. 350lbs! Wholy Heck! 350lbs on a small frame of 5'3 n 3/4" is NOT healthy! Look at my face! Hi swollen!!
I remember feeling gender neutral even though I had just had a baby and only a few months ago did I feel feminine again.
Now, I'm happy to report that I am quickly reclaiming the self I had lost. I'm wearing makeup again. I'm doing my hair. I'm not wearing t-shirts and sweatshirts interchangeably to every occasion and my yoga pants sit folded in the top of my closet unless I'm exercising or wearing them to sleep.
So now I don't feel like this:
I feel like this:
I feel pretty and feminine and myself.
I just want to post those comparison photos because I was literally shocked at my size. I mean, I knew I felt huge and horrible but didn't realize how huge I actually was.
