Don’t Need New Pants Hahah

Jealousy is good when used in a positive manner. In my case, it is a good motivator!

Earlier I blogged about how jealous I felt upon seeing a friend who slimmed down drastically after giving birth and my frustration towards my stagnant weight. Guess what? This week I did a little change in my diet and by the end of it, I finally could wear my old pants!

Even though I could barely fit (tight as sarung nangka 😂) but the feeling of fitting in my old pants, my pre-pregnancy pants is just so thrilling! I can finally say bye-bye to my maternity pants for good….for now 😅

So what did I do? It is not a big change but still could produce results and that’s what I want. I just reduce my coffee/sweet drinks intake to twice a day (before, I drink as much as I want) and control my carb intake. I just eat as usual but I don’t take seconds. If I really want to eat somemore I just eat lauk and drink lots of water after that to keep me full. I did snack in between meals but all I eat is just lactation cookies or brownies with water. 

My milk supply fluctuated a bit at the start of this new diet – maybe because I eat a bit less or maybe because I drink green tea (milk killer?) but I just persevered and a few days later, my supply returned to normal. But I also stop drinking green tea 😞 I’m afraid that my supply will not return to normal if I keep drinking.

I did take a few supplements to help with weight loss; Shaklee Omegaguard to help burn calories faster and VCO to flush it out because I was a bit constipated ever since I give birth.

So yeah, I managed to lose some weight faster with a little change and I hope I could maintain this! I would love to lose 2-3kg more so that my pants would fit comfortably but I am pleased enough as of now 😁

(Update) Baby A

Haven’t been able to update my blog as much as I wanted to 🙁

Baby A is really, really cranky and fussy right now she really tests my patience to the limit. I guess two major developments are coming our way; one is rolling over, and two, (didn’t see this coming THIS soon) teething! I swear a teething baby is such a pain to deal with 😣

Her upper gum is starting to look swollen and maybe that’s what making her so uncomfortable. Dunno when her first tooth will cut through – how soon does a baby get her tooth? 5 months? 6 months? Anyway, I guess I have to deal with her fussiness until the first tooth comes out 😣

She has rolled-over on her own a few times but it is not perfect yet. She always got her hand stuck under her body 😂

She grows up so fast 😭 She will be 4 months in 3 days 😭😭
