It's actually been a couple weeks since I've been out.  I have been spending a lot of time at home with the kids since Elliot has been traveling without me.  However, I did thankfully get out without the twins the night before Elliot's designation from the Indians.  

I took just Blake and hit up the game on that Friday, feeling good that I had finally gotten down to my pre-pregnancy weight.  I know all you moms know what I'm talking about.  You seriously want to rejoice when the scale says the same number it said before.  Hallelujah!  

I bought the peplum I'm wearing from Piperlime during spring training.  I love wearing peplums, but I hadn't been to where I wanted to be post pregnancy until now to wear it.  I decided pre-pregnancy weight status was a good reason to celebrate and wear it.  

It was chilly in Cleveland that night, so I threw my favorite Velvet by Graham and Spencer jacket over the top, and paired it all with my Joes Jeans.  I finished it off with some Jessica Simpson peep toe pumps and I was ready to get out and celebrate.  

I have to admit that I haven't been as concerned this time as I was after Blake to get back in shape.  Maybe I'm too tired, or maybe there is just no time with the kids yet.  After Blake, I was 30 day shredding and running on the treadmill as soon as the doctor said it was ok.  I gained 50 lbs in my pregnancy with him and I was ready to lose it.  With the twins, I actually only gained 30 lbs. 

This was me just a few days before I had the twins in October.  Holy Belly!  You may think I look small for twins, but my belly was seriously much bigger than it was with just Blake, and I also had the twins at 33 weeks.  They were small when they were born, weighing in at just 3 lb 12 oz and 4 lb 2 oz.  Itty bits.  But that's another story for another time.  

I think it's funny that I was so concerned with my weight when I was pregnant with Blake, and I gained 50 lbs.  With the twins, I assumed I would get bigger and didn't feel the need to worry about it much, and then ended up gaining way less, even though I only had them 3 weeks earlier than I had Blake.    

I knew the weight would eventually come off, and it definitely took longer than last time.  My current workout consists of carrying twins and swinging on a swingset with a 4 year old.  I know I have time to get back into the shape I was in before I got pregnant with the twins (I ran a half marathon a month before I got pregnant).  I'm glad I went into it in the best shape I could be in before, but for now, I'm just focusing on trying to make healthy food choices and leaving it at that until I have more time.  

How did you lose the weight after babies?
