Losing the weight after baby #2 was much more difficult than with baby #1. When I had Sawyer the weight just kind of…fell off. With all the calories I burned breastfeeding, and the swelling that finally went down after preeclampsia, I lost a lot of weight in the first few weeks by doing nothing at all. 10 lbs or so stuck around, but then I went back to my job at Orangetheory Fitness where I could literally workout whenever I wanted, for free, and lost those last 10 lbs pretty easily after that.
And then, badaboom, my pre baby body was back.
Don’t get me wrong, things were different. I had a C-Section which means I was pretty much stuck with that “mommy pouch” and a giant scar for life but the number on the scale went back to what it was, and I started fitting back into my old clothes.
