It’s no secret that I’ve been trying to lose weight (and was making headway until a few weeks ago – we’re plateaued out right now..). But one thing I noticed, and everyone said this would happen, is that even though I’m getting back to my goal weight, my clothes just don’t fit the way they used to. I understand the hips/butt/belly thing…that took the brunt of the impact during pregnancy. However, what I don’t understand is that I seem to have become longer in the waist. All my sweaters from just prior to my pregnancy are all like crop tops now! I’m trying to pass it off as a cruel joke where someone went and washed them all so they shrunk but seriously….they’re all too short! Bums me out because I had a bunch that I really loved:( Oh well…off to wrap presents and figure it all out later.

And here’s a picture of Noey for good measure…he was watching daddy change the light outside the door.

  1. It’s all just so weird, isn’t it? I had a long torso to begin with, and you’re right, my shirts felt short, too. I’m trying to be more careful about my weight gain this time around because when I went 7 lbs over “the limit” my OB said that the last 7 pounds was mine to keep. He was right! Even after 2 years, I never managed to get rid of it!

  2. My tops all feel too short, too. I think it’s an illusion, though. I got so used to how long maternity shirts were (to cover the HUGE bulge in front), and now nothing seems long enough in comparison. Plus, while I’m also back to pre-preggo weight, my middle is, uh, a little jiggly, so I like to know I have plenty of shirt coverage lest something be seen hanging out!
