Video Conversations with Sarah.

Posted: June 7th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Misc. | 3 Comments »

This is a response to Sarah who requested VIDEO comments to her latest post. The question: Do you feel pressure to get back into shape after having a baby? (or something like that)

So here it is…

I realize I didn’t answer the question entirely so here’s the beef. I have never felt the need to look like celebrities. Seriously, they are all like 5’2″ and weigh in around 100lbs…never going to happen and who says that’s what we should look like anyway? I have never felt pressure from my husband to be thinner or dress a certain way or workout more or anything like that- he did like to make up workouts for me when we belonged to a gym but that was just something he liked to do. I rarely did his routines! I understand the pressure from seeing friends and family get back to their weight fast- my sisters (even though they don’t have kids yet) are both teeny tiny. I imagine they will both shrink right back down…but my Mom was teeny tiny too, so who knows!

Thanks for starting the conversation Sarah! What’s next?

    I *LOVE* this! 🙂 I laughed out loud when you said you would rather do laundry and the dishes than workout. I workout to avoid laundry and dishes! haha I am so interested to continue to get different takes on other subjects too. Any new topic suggestions, or if you want to start a topic would be awesome!

    You rock my socks, and you don't hardly have an accent!

    You are too cute! I love this idea and your response.

    I don't feel pressure to lose weight, I want to lose weight so that I can get back to doing the things I enjoy . . .running and soccer!
