The Making of a MILF: Chapter Three

I think the greatest misconception for new moms is the idea that everything will instantly snap back into place, the baby weight will fall off and everything will just somehow come together. But, that isn’t the case with everyone. Everyone doesn’t snap back, some women never lose their baby weight and some never really feel “normal” again. 

I’m guilty of anticipating this magical snap back that never really came. I had a little gut before, so I didn’t expect that to disappear, but hearing things like “breastfeeding will make the baby weight drop” and tons of other testimonies made me think I’d just feel like my normal self again – but I didn’t.

My confidence levels since having my daughter Zoe have been so-so. I honestly haven’t been feeling the cutest or greatest about myself. And, not having the time to work out, or extra money to indulge in pampering myself when I do feel like a hideous monster, doesn’t help.

I honestly don’t know if I had a temporary case of PPD, but I can say the stress of becoming a new mom and having your body change so much, can be extremely overwhelming and even disappointing for some.

I joke about being a MILF all the time in my posts and pictures, but it wasn’t until recently that I finally got that breath of fresh air and realized I do still look great. Once I find the time to get my body back on a consistent workout schedule, I know I’ll start to feel semi-normal again.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, mom’s. It’s just a bit of a ride until we get there – and we will.
