Look how skinny I WAS!

I almost stared in astonishment as I looked through some photos (mind you , this photo was only about 7 months ago!)...I was like, "what the hecklers"...."look how skinny my legs looked!"
If graphic pattern leggings made my legs look that thinny....I'd invest all $50 of my dollars in graphic print leggings!
BUT alas....not geometric pattern can slim down my "plumping" thighs now.....
my last appointment at my midwife's last week...sent me into a face grabbing-state-of-shock...
"Ummmm....I think your scale is broken.....these numbers on here are all wrong.."
ha ha ha ha
I know, I know...I'll breastfeed and all my weight will fall off...but, sure it was fun when I saw my boobs growing to unusually large size..but when your butt and hips do it-
it doesn't seem as such a gift!
the only thing that's the same size in this photo as the one above...is my phone case is the same size! Notice how I tried to hide my "leg-awareness" by drawing the attention to my awesomely graphic, Keith Haring top! ha ha ha

So instead of "pimp my ride".....I'll be "plump my thighs" ha ha ha ha
Here's to awesome new curves....and then hooray when I get to run like the wind, after baby is here....me and my double jogging stroller are gonna log some running miles for sure! ha ha ha

It's ok...with Jordan my first...I gained like 50 pounds! And I got in the best shape of my life after he was born!

big thighs and cupcakes.....your kandee

I just found out last Tuesday I'm preggers with baby #2. I'm 4.5 weeks and already want to unbottom my jeans. Bye bye size 5! LOL!

And I'm SO glad you're going to breastfeed! That's how I lost my weight with my first and it's SOOOO good for baby. =) Be happy and healthy!

You've done it before you can take the weight off again! I'm up so much weight right now at 31 weeks. I keep waiting for my Dr. to give me "the talk". I can't wait to breastfeed and burn some calories! You look wonderful :)

I can't see an ounce of extra weight on you anyway (except for the actual cupcake bump). You are beautiful and healthy and simply glowing. Enjoy this magical time =)

Kandee you look absolutely stunning. I think you are one of the most beautiful mothers on this planet right now !!! Not only looking to your body, but also into your soul... you spread love and shine around you by all the laughs and smiles you're giving us everyday : that's really amazing.
Take care of yourself and all of your precious family.

you're a beauty !!!!!!

Melissa said...

Whateves! You are one hot mama! You look fab with or without a little plumping and yes, as you know, that breastfeeding helps. Celebrate that you are doing the most important and amazing thing us women can do, bring forth new life! YOU are beautiful inside and out and all of your babies are fortunate to have you :) Peace, Meli

americancowgurl said...

Kandee, I really hope I don't need to tell you this, but you are one of the last people on earth that has to worry about gaining a few pounds. You are BEAUTIFUL just as God made you, even as you carry around a few "extra" pounds because of the baby (which, by the way, I can't for the life of me see any "extra" pounds on ya in that second pic anyway).

God bless!

You know its funny because generally when Black women get pregnant they get happy about more curves, bigger butt, bigger thighs, bigger breast. But when women of other ethnicities get bigger in the hips butt & thighs they are upset about it! I love curves, be happy! And congrats on the baby! Your beautiful!

Ashley said...

Kandee - you hardly look any bigger than the other picture! You're beautiful!! You don't look big at all.

The Irish Maiden said...

I would be happy to have a butt and hips. I got boobs but NO butt...I wished it was the other way around. I look like an upsidedown pear....hehe. You look great Kandee!

SaraGibbons said...

I'm sure you hear this all the time but I feel the need to tell you again....YOU LOOK AMAZING! I know it's hard to look back and see pic's of yourself and see how little you were, pre-cupcake but remember....not only do I and all your fans think you are beautiful, I'm sure your kiddo's think the same thing! They know better than any of us, what an awesome and amazing person you are, not just on the outside but inside as well! I know my kids always lift me up when I'm feeling down and not looking my best and no-matter what, are kids love us unconditionally! So, take it easy lil Mama and enjoy baking that cupcake!!!!!
God bless you & yours-

~Sara

Andrea said...

Your going to a midwife!?! Oh yay, that is super awesome!

Bitter B*tch said...

Kandee, I don't think you can have a bad day you always look sweet as a peach :)

Thanks for the advice on the Mama Mio, I think I will try a few of their products. They sound fantastic!

Random Things and Our Family Life said...

Growing a healthy baby is the key! You look great! My baby is almost 3 months old and I have 20-25lbs to loose! You're right...breastfeeding burns a lot off! Best Wishes...
Love your YT vid's and blog!! I have learned a lot from you! :) xx
