"Shhh Penguin, I'm looking at something"
This has nothing to do with this post
Neither does this one
I have been writing for Fit for Expecting for about a month or so. Doing the circuit and elliptical workouts. On Thursday, the day of Megan's post, I did said elliptical workout and while I was changing back into my work clothes I took a good hard look at my body in only panties (do grown women still use that word?) It was under the always-flattering florescent lights. After this sobering look at myself for a good 5 minutes I thought "this isn't so bad. Yes, you can see my ribs a little more, and my thighs and hips are wider than previous. But this isn't the worst, I can handle this". I know my body is going to be a fluid thing through out my pregnancies, and I think this is one of the most beautiful things about the human body. The way it can change and adapt to life. Don't get me started on breastfeeding, but the fact that my body knows to do that is really freaking awesome.
I did make it out without a TON of stretch marks (I have some from previous weight loss/gain) and they make push up bras for a reason. So I think I'll survive.
