Post partum recovery, the belly bandit did it again

My post partum recovery has been awesome this time around. I used the belly bandit after my last pregnancy and I was super excited about the result so this time around I did the same thing. The results are amazing, the belly bandit is definitely a must have. I know I am only 2 weeks post partum and I have plenty of time to get back to normal but it feels good to be making some noticeable progress.

I started wearing the belly bandit the day after I gave birth and have been wearing it everyday since then. Within a week I was already loving my post partum belly. Not only it helped with shrinking it, it also helped with the appearance. My belly looks less wrinkly than it did with Tman. I am also breastfeeding exclusively and my baby is so efficient, maybe that is also helping with the recovery.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. It feels good to love your post partum body so soon after birth. YAY belly bandit.

As far as the weight goes, It's been a pretty good ride too. I gained about 26lbs this pregnancy and I've lost all of it so far, wowzer. I am not quite at my goal weight, I like to be between 135 and 140lbs, so I want to lose another 10 to 15lbs but I think that might linger with breastfeeding and all. I don't care really, as long as my belly looks good :).

Post partum recovery the third rime around has been good to me. I am still sore and recovering but I am so loving the progress right now. I am going to continue to wear the belly bandit for the next 2 to 3 weeks. I am excited to start working on toning things in a few months. I hope my next pregnancy is this good to me
