After having Jack I immediately lost the average 15 lbs within a few days, but that left a good 25 lb to get back to my pre-baby weight. My doctor advised not to hit the gym for 6 weeks after giving birth and being the paranoid android that I am, I heeded Dr. Malone’s instructions.
At the month in a half mark (6 weeks) I was eager to get my gym schedule planned. After much consideration and research, I decided to try Memphis Fitness Kickboxing (aka Memphis Judo and Jiujitsu).
There were men and women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and experience. I was instantly motivated and ready to get on the ball, or should I say bag! Now in order for one to understand how transformational this class can be, I must show my body at the 6 week mark post birth.
My Post Baby Body
I am not trying to put my post baby body down because I truly believe that a woman’s body after birth is beautiful. It just created a human for 9 months and then delivered that little being into the world. I have a new love for my body. After meeting my son Jack for the first time, I couldn’t get over the extraordinary miracle that my body, uncontrolled by me, had created. With that being said, I will point out the obvious weight and structural changes.
loss of almost all muscle tone
loss of skin elasticity in the back, side, and stomach area
hips are noticeably wider
overlap of skin on my back and side
The only place that remained unchanged was my calfs and arms.
