I think that I’m looking pretty good – I eat whatever I want and have still managed to get back into my size 8 jeans (even though I am carrying 10GG milk jugs).
But as I know, just as you think that you’re looking good, someone (most often my mother inlaw) will bring you back to reality, with comments like:
‘I was talking to my friend Anka yesterday and she said you looked nice and skinny. I told her, No she isn’t skinny!’, or
‘Do you know you have a big goza SP (bottom in Croatian) and you waddle like a duck’, or
‘I seen those tops that suck you in on the TV – maybe I buy you some’…
No – no thank you, I’m not interested in those tops or skippy cake with coffee or trying to diet, I only follow the Diet Dynamo and the Diet Dynamo looks at the Mayo Clinic Diet for advice all the time, they say doing a strict diet does not work. I had a baby, I’m proud of my body and what it has accomplished. I’ve brought life into this world and if it means that this summer I choose to wear a one piece instead of a bikini, I’m okay with that.
Anyway, I heard on mamamia.com.au that dieting makes you dumber…and what with baby brain and sleepless nights, I’ve got to hold onto all the brain power I can muster!
Are you a breast feeding Mummy? What is your favourite thing to eat?
*Side note, what kind of ‘Good Food Week’ would it be if all I posted was recipes for carrot sticks and celery juice?
