That is so true! I had a bunch of houseguests over the weekend, overdid it, and felt aching in my pelvic floor and experienced renewed heavy bleeding-- spent a couple days off my feet and now it feels fine again. But yeah, letting my body heal is way way more important than weight loss during these weeks, so true.

DH and I are planning to try HIIT (high intensity interval training).
We could both stand to shed a few pounds, but we both HATE exercising, so it sounds perfect for us. Anyone else doing/done it?
So you ladies wearing a squeem.... does the rubbery smell wear off? Do you sleep in it? What is the idea with belly binding, to wear it as much as possible or just when you're getting nicely dressed and going somewhere and want your clothes to fit better? Do you also lounge around the house in it?
I wore mine, which came in the mail today, for a couple of hours. Then I took it off and took a bath and didn't feel like putting it back on under my sweat pants and nursing cami and hoodie. But it did make a dramatic difference! I felt so Downton Abbey to be wearing a girdle.
I'm probably going to buy a small- the large has gotten big enough on me that some of the hooks slip open. I think I should have gotten the med to begin with, but their sizing said when in doubt go with the larger size. It has still helped, for sure-and I think it would've been hard to get into the medium right away!
I guess it's supposed to help smoosh your inners back to their original designated places a bit faster than they would on their own I don't really know,. I think you're supposed to wear it every day for 4-8 weeks to get the effect. And of course ab exercises are the best for strengthening your muscles, starting small & gentle and working your way up to more strenuous crunches after you get your Dr.'s ok.
Last time I started weight watchers at 2mo and gained weight! So I'm going to stay away from that kind of thing right now. Good luck to you Serena!
Tilly; I know how you feel. I really want to start eating well but I just don't have time right now.
Annoyingly I still can't get into my normal jeans; I hope my hips shrink back down because I just bought three pairs of new trousers in my usual size, and I can't button them up. It looks like maternity trousers for the foreseeable future!
