When love makes you fat

LilySlim - (5zix)

Let’s make it clear, I am not blaming my husband or the baby… but the side effects of them are not waist friendly, it’s amazing how trying to adapt to a new life can affect your weight, add pregnancy to the equation and I at least, lost control of my shape completely.

– oct/2012/60kg – I meet the man of my dreams +2kg

– feb/2013/62kg – We move in together and get married in the next few months +3kg

– july/2013/65kg – Honeymoon surprise! +3kg

– march/2014/99kg – they check my weight before the c-section, almost 3 digits…

that’s A LOT of love uh?

I lost 11kg with the birth, my baby was 4kg and there is the weight of the placenta, etc. A week after I lost 2 more kilos. That is it, baby is over a month and my weight is stuck at 86kg.

There are many factors that put me here, stress, schedules, pregnancy. I just realized that my husband does comfort eating and I have followed his steps, quite easy to do when the man can cook darn good southern food I had never had in my life… then again as a general rule american food seems to be pretty unhealthy.

Did I mentioned my dear husband cooked for me the entire pregnancy? I was feeling so sick all the time I didn’t have the energy to do it. He is a foot taller than me and when we met he was double my weight, yet he would serve me the same size portion than himself… before I knew it I was eating all of it.

I don’t know how much weight my love gained while I was pregnant but I dare to guess 20kg. I wish we could get in shape together but he is not exactly a team player when it comes to that… so my plan is to reject his food, I hope he understands.
