Pregnant Again?!

Oh no, I am not pregnant again.  I just look pregnant.

To get back to my pre-pregnant weight as soon as possible was part of the plan.  Five months after my cesarean delivery, its all that is... a plan.

I hate exercising.  But, oh, I attempted several times to make it part of my routine.  You see, about 10 years ago, I hired myself a badminton coach.  Together with 3 of my friends, we traveled from Makati to Paranaque just to learn the sport.  The outfits were too cute but my interest lasted just 3 months.

Then I tried hitting the gym.  I boldly enrolled in Slimmers World in 2006.  Needless to say, that didn't work too.  I came up with every excuse not to exercise.  In the end, I realized it was all for show and wasted my hard-earned money.

Today, five months after my CS operation, my self esteem has been tarnished by my post partum belly.  From size small, I have jumped to a loud large.  I almost wanted to put a sign in my forehead "JUST GAVE BIRTH!".  Ooooohhh, I am so annoyed when I see glances (sometimes stares) from people who can't tell if your pregnant or just plain fat!  Though I have finally moved my pre-pregnant clothes out of my closet, I wanted to be small again.  Small means healthy and confident.  I do not want to be typecasted with women who after giving birth has lost the vigor to look and feel good inside out.

After hearing countless comments that I am fat and I look like I'm pregnant again, I will commit to Forma.  Forma is a unique technique that combines pilates, yoga and dance.  I attended my first class last Tuesday and believe me, it awakened muscles in areas that I didn't even know existed!  I am definitely sore now, even after 2 days.  But I will come back later and take the 4x4 challenge.  I can do this!

Plana Forma is located at 6F Jecoprime Building, 20th Drive, McKinley Business Park, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
