Unless you are one of those lucky few women who look exactly like they did pre-pregnancy as soon as they have their baby, postpartum dressing can be a little tricky, particularly during the first few weeks. After all, it can take 6 weeks just for your uterus to return to its normal size and position. Until that happens, it's pretty unlikely that you'll have a flat stomach. Also, you're probably a little larger than you were pre-pregnancy which means that your pre-pregnancy clothes might not fit yet. You could keep wearing your maternity clothes but, if you're like me, you're more than ready to pack those things away / burn them (okay, maybe not anything that extreme.)

An outfit like the one I'm wearing here is a pretty great for the postpartum stage for the following reasons:
1. The loose, flowy tank hides my midsection
2. The leggings are comfortable and much easier to fit into than a pair of my regular jeans
2. The tank top is long enough that I can wear leggings with it without angering too many people in the "leggings are not pants" camp (although I'm sure some still wouldn't approve ha)

While it's not fun to post pictures of myself during this postpartum period, hopefully some of you will find it helpful! Also, I thought it might be fun to share a little bit of my weight loss journey as I try to get back to my pre-pregnancy state. So, each week I'm going to share my progress during the previous week and my plans for the current week. I can't exercise for the next four weeks, so my focus will mainly be on my diet for now.

2 Weeks Postpartum
Height: 5' 6"
Pre-pregnancy weight: 128 lb
Max pregnancy weight: 163 lb
Current weight: 143 lb
Plan for the week: eat 1800-2000 calories per day; walk every day
