Once upon a time, I was reading an interview with Angelina Jolie, and she said something like this (I'm seriously paraphrasing here) in response to people's criticisms of her post-pregnancy weight loss: I'm breastfeeding and I haven't gotten my nutrition back on track, so I've lost a bunch of weight. My first thought was, yeah, right, skinnypants.
Well now I'm breastfeeding myself, and I swear that at least today, you probably wouldn't think I'd even been pregnant. I feel like I get a bit skinnier every day. Now, I don't actually have any confirmation of this, not having a scale, though I have plans to bust out my pre-pregnancy clothes any day now. I'd like to get some exercise, but I don't have any time for that, what with the running back and forth between the hospital and home.
The whole easy weight loss thing will probably change some once she gets home and I can, as Angelina said, "get my nutrition back on track," but for now it's kind of funny. I've always had a tendency to put on weight easily. Now it's melting off.
