Body After Baby
Kourtney: After I had Mason, I wasn’t in any rush to lose the weight I gained during pregnancy. Breastfeeding takes a lot of the weight off, so I lost a lot of it easily, not changing anything. In fact, I never had cravings while I was pregnant, but when I was breastfeeding I craved sweets. And I’m normally not a sweets person, I go for things like chips with fat and salt. But sweets were all I wanted. My mom would come over and bring all these Christmas cookies and brownies and I would eat them all day long. And I still lost twenty pounds.
Then I went back to working out again. I really like to run, though lately my knees have been bothering me so I do the elliptical, too.
I have changed the way I eat some. Now I have breakfast every morning, which I think is good for your metabolism, and then throughout the day I make sure I eat something whenever I feel hungry. I’ll have a cup of cherries, or peanut butter with banana. And I’ve really gotten into nuts and dried fruit. Even though I lost the baby weight a long time ago, I’m still eating that way. For my meals, I eat whatever I want.
I definitely never deprive myself. If you asked me how often I indulge myself with a food splurge, I’d say everyday. Absolutely. A cheeseburger with fries and a shake is always good. I also love DoubleStuf Oreos. And New York-style pizza with the thin crust. And I love having Mexican food and margaritas.
While I was pregnant, my butt got juicier, which I loved. But about three months or so after I had Mason I felt bad about my body for about a week. It was the only time in my whole life that I felt insecure about my body. I didn’t realize that after you had a baby your stomach wouldn’t just completely flatten out immediately. Especially after losing the baby weight. It was in Miami, I was like wait, what’s with my belly? But then I thought, who cares? I’m breastfeeding. I’m eating for two. Then I was past it.
