Yay!! I felt the same way lol... I wanted to post on FB when I fit back in mine but then I remembered that when I was griping about my maternity clothes not fitting anymore someone commented that when she was pregnant she wore her regular pants the whole time. I didn't want her to burst my bubble lol.

So jealous.

I'm scared to try mine again because it will make me cry.

I looked into my closet and literally trembled in fear. I could not even bring myself to try on any pants. Sticking with the free flowing hippy skirts for now.

yup, I got into mine about a week ago. Although, they are a bit tighter in the belly than before. I have just 3 lbs to go to pp weight. I feel pretty frumpy though. Ahhh, the ups and downs of hormones.

Not working so well here. A couple I can fit but not much. I'm only 6 lbs from my pre-preg weight, and my stomach is looking pretty good. However I think baby #3 has done a number on my hips. They are much bigger now for sure. I was a 2/4 pre-preg and I'm thinking based on hips alone I won't be making it back there.
It's particularly frustrating right now because we leave for Florida Tuesday and I don't fit my shorts. Maybe planning a trip for 6 weeks after baby wasn't the best idea....for my self esteem at least.

ahem ... I wore my regular pants the whole time. Mostly because I'm hippy and pants are usually big in the waist to fit over my hips, so I just ended up with pants that were snug in the waist. That and I was so sick during the pregnancy. Don't be too jealous - I'm a big girl and we don't show as much.

Married to a wonderful man and we have 1 adorable baby girl (8/30/2010) and 2 furbabies.

for me, it's only because breastfeeding....it doesn't just "help me lose weight" in some beneficial way. It totally wastes me away to skin and bones and then I start getting comments from the peanut gallery about how awful I look. I looked emaciated and unhealthy the whole time I was bf'ing dd1 and it took a few months after to get back to my normal, healthy weight. It's not good. I think I have some hormonal problem. It also makes me feel tired and crave sugar like mad.
