frustrated!!!!!!!!!

It's extremely frustrating when I keep being told how great I look for being 6 weeks post baby.... I feel like crud and cant find clothes that fit. my maternity clothes dont fit right and I can't get into jeans becuase the excess at my stomache squishes up and out Sad Im hoping Im cleared for exercising at my appt on Friday!

I was really starting to consider doing a body wrap. Anyone on here familiar with these? I have a friend that sells them and I have so much excess from stretching so far out I thought about trying one to help a little....

6 weeks is NOTHING! It took your body 40 weeks to get to where it is, it isn't going to instantly pop back!

For the record, I think you looked great in the picture you posted. Accept the compliments! Embrace the love.

Personally I think all those wraps and 'get skinny quick' things are a waste of money, but that's just me.

I know it's hard to embrace a post-partum body. I'm not super happy with mine either...but it is what it is. Our bodies just did an amazing thing...it will take time to be normal again.

Its just extra hard knowing I have to go back to work in a couple weeks and I have no clothes that fit me. I literally altrnate between 2 different shirts right now and have 1 pair of jeans that fit "ok" and that's if I wash them every day. (after the first day they are too loose to wear but the next size down (in maternity) dont fit past my thighs/hips) I just want to be abel to get dressed!
