Thwarted

By It_gets_better - 11/10/2020 23:55 - United States - Las Cruces

Today, I weigh the same as I did the day I gave birth six months ago. I'd been working out and finally making progress, until I fell off a horse and injured my hip. I can't work out for at least the next two weeks either. FML
I agree, your life sucks 1 090
You deserved it 177

Oh wow, my FML finally got published! I know it takes some time to fully heal from the baby, it just hits me harder because both of my sisters had babies after me and they're both back into their nonmaternity wardrobe. So I am a little jealous that it took me a while to start making progress- and why it was such a bummer to move backward so fast. Really, I know I picked up bad habits during pregnancy and I gained a lot of unhealthy weight, not just baby weight, so I'm exercising to be healthier overall. The riding in the first place is part of my course load at university. I fell off because the stirrup snapped and I hit the ground with it. My husband had to wheel me to urgent care and they did X rays to make sure I didn't break my pelvis. So while the good news is nothing was broken- I couldn't get off the couch for days and it still took me about three weeks to be able to walk around the house. I'm feeling much better now and should be back in classes at the end of this week!

It’s ok! Be kind to yourself.

It takes 1 year before you body is healed after childbirth, the Hollywood quick fix mommy body is actually not healthy for in the long run. Let your body heal and enjoy the baby.

Who asked you to get up on a horse? Those fuckers are dangerous! Ever heard of Christopher Reeve? A horse killed Superman!

OK. So your hip is injured. I’m sorry to hear that. Any reason you can’t build up the muscles in your arms?

The point is not to build muscle but to lose pregnancy weight. You don't think you get pregnant in your arms, do you?

If you had a baby six months ago and your main concern is your weight, you're probably doing something wrong...

Or maybe the actual parenting part is going decently well and there's room in her life for her to address her weight? Not everyone sucks or has a hard time with babies. Not all babies are difficult either.

Complaining about your hip being injured because it prevents you from losing weight ain't an ad for a balanced lifestyle, I think. I had an exceptionnaly easy baby. That doesn't mean my wife should have made losing the few pregnancy kilos an emergency...

Thank you! My son is actually the easiest baby I have ever seen. And my husband is also a student so our schedule is much more flexible than if I was the only at home parent for most of the day.

You were able to make progress and you will again soon. I gave birth 6 months ago too, and would bleed with normal activity for some reason. So I ended up keeping my max preggo weight from taking it easy and confining us upstairs because our stairs are a big workout and somewhat dangerous. I started getting back into my regular swing of things last month finally and I'm seeing good progress. Once you get back on your feet from your injury you'll be making progress again too. Please don't be too hard on yourself. It's more important to rest and heal right now so you can better care for yourself and the little one.

Weight loss is 70% food intake. Try incorporating significantly more vegetables and cut back a bit on the stuff that’s not as good for you. Exercise will helps tone you up better when you’re in better shape to. Good luck and get well soon.
