Dear Self,

Please stop comparing yourself to your older sister whose pre-pregnancy clothes are too big one month after birthing her children, while you are still fitting quite nicely into your maternity jeans whilst your 3 month old lay in your arms nursing. Also, stop stressing about your upcoming 30th birthday and the cruise to the Bahamas (both occurring the end of May). Instead, remind yourself on how much you love your three little ones (all of whom greatly contributed to your current "pleasantly plump" condition) and paste a picture of Marilyn Monroe to the bathroom mirror (this will especially help your post-shower ego). Keep exercising, eating tons of vegetables, and drinking silly amounts of water. Embrace your curves, dearie.

love, moi

p.s. also, please can you find a bathing suit like marilyn's for the cruise? hhhhhot!

I have to admit, I was in the same boat as your sister with my first 2 pregnancies, but now I'm right there with you Kat! In fact, I'm going to D.I. today to find clothes that fit:( Let's motivate each other to keep exercising, drinking water, and chasing the 1st two kiddos around. We can do it!

There's a swim suit just like that at LandsEnd that I've always thought was pretty cute!

Melissa said...

Wow. Totally feel your pain. I can't walk by a reflective surface without thinking..."BLECH! Who IS that?" I always think you're super cute, Kat, and I think you look fabulous now.

I've been eyeing this suit all season:

I love those 50's swimsuits. I've seriously considered making one for myself, but I've never gotten around to it (sigh... like so many things).
