kourtney k's unretouched post preg tummy

Like Tree42Likes

Once at the gym, I overheard a personal trainer talking to his client, about how his wife was due soon, and how he'd have her back to 110, "A tight 110," in 12 weeks. Can you imagine being married to that? And then have a baby, which means you're stuck with him for the foreseeable future? That kind of pressure will where most women down, no matter how good their self-esteem.

I gained 75 pounds and lost it w/in four months and gained 90 the second time and lost it w/in six months. And I didn't do anything drastic. (But I had a small jelly roll that wouldn't go away.)

That is true. I thought of it as the husband saying that if his wife wasn't back down to a "tight 110" in twelve weeks, it wasn't acceptable. That's what was vomitrocious to me.
This thread could pretty much be about my ex-SIL. She's had 4 kids. FOUR! And every single time she had them, she walked out of the hospital in her pre-pregnancy clothes. Not pre-pregnancy yoga pants. Pre-pregnancy Lucky Brand jeans. And they weren't her fat jeans. And the hag has a 6 pack and wears a bikini at the age of 41. I would say I want to be her, but I only want to have her body.

Come to think of it, my mom came out of the hospital wearing her pre-pregnancy clothes for all of us but the youngest.

I think I found ALLLLLL their pregnancy weight. And I've never had a baby and never want to.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

And the fact that a man has the nerve to put those expectations on a woman is just unacceptable. I could totally picture him being a complete ******* if his wife didn't lose the weight and tighten up on his schedule.

Um, no. you can prevent them. NOT everyone, sorry I forgot to say that, but you can take preventive measures with certain creams.


I know people who've had them and then didn't have them the second time.


I know people who know they can get stretch marks and used creams to prevent getting them.

I don't know what you're um, noing, but your statement doesn't really go with mine.

I used it religiously like the bottle says, with its directions, but that doesn't count because it was magic.

But my examples are invalid because the people who have not experienced the magicalness that is wizardy creams will never believe because they have not experienced it. This is common occurrence for anything, in which people will make your statements invalid because they haven't experienced it, we've seen this numerous times, especially in nonhair.

You have to experience it to be a believer. You guys just didn't get the letter, from the hogcream school of witchcraft and stretchmark removal.

But maybe it was because I magically believed so hard that they went away, maybe, because I am magic.

My hubby (mind you has an advanced degree in anthropology so you think he would be sensitive to post partum recovery) wouldn't bat an eyelash at me taking hour plus long hikes days/weeks after giving birth. We had our smackdowns.

As a new mother, it's our job to protect ourselves by giving the finger to these so-called social pressures. When we're cool, we can be there for the babies (and the hubbies).

murrcat, I thoroughly enjoy your posts.
It's kind of sad that a magazine has to clarify that a picture isn't retouched.

Also, y'all have seen NOTHING in terms of post-baby body nonsense until Kate Middleton has her baby. Get ready.

I think what bothers me about this is more the idea that all women and their bodies are, or should be, the same. Sure, SOME women bounce back quickly and others work really hard to do so, but others don't or can't. These magazines simultaneously send the message that these are exceptional Superwomen who lose the weight and that other mortal women can follow their tips and do the same and are lacking if they don't.

I do agree that not everyone does or should buy in to this warped thinking. But it is a problem for society as a whole when women are on magazine covers for having baby bumps and losing the baby weight.... but not nearly as often for their exceptional parenting, or their educational achievements, professional success, special talents, philanthropy, etc.

As to stretch marks, I don't believe anything other than genetics can prevent them. I have heard that bio oil can significantly lessen them if it is used early enough, so that's likely what happened to murrcat.

Sure I'll buy that it's real aka "un-photoshopped" But as others have pointed out that doesn't mean that there wasn't flattering camera angles, good lighting, and maybe some touch-up makeup at play.

That being said, sure, she looks darn good.

Yeah, if I had a bajillion dollars from being on a crappy show and inheriting a
lot of money from my father and was living with someone who is a trust fund
baby, I'd be able to pay for a hardcore trainer and personal chef or
nutritionist or whatever.
LOL. We all say that. But if oodles of money was the key to everybody's weight loss success, Oprah would be ... well, you know the rest. Ya still gotta put in the work.

Also, she probably worked her ass off because of inside and outside influences. I watched a show *hangs my head in shame* where Scott the dick wanted to have sex with her and she told him no and that she felt ugly and fat when she was pregnant. I know it's not uncommon for pregnant women to feel that way, but if she felt that way to the extreme that she wouldn't have sex with him, then the motivation to "get her body back" so she can feel desirable is a huge motivation.

It also probably doesn't help that she's surrounded by thin, materialistic, vain people in her family. Her two youngest sister's are models and hyper thin, her mom has no qualms about telling her kids if they're starting to look a little chunky or not looking their best (I don't know if Kourtney is part of her mom's passing comments about looks and weight, but I can't imagine she would be exempt).

I think celebrities have totally different situations than other women. They have people, dieticians, cooks, personal trainers, skin specialists, plastic surgeons ect not to mention they probably have products available to them that we haven't even heard of. It's great that she can look that good after having a baby but everyone is different so you have to work with the body you have.
Maybe when I have kids I need to get people too lol....although I had a personal trainer once and got tired of him...I pretty much knew what I wanted and what I had to do to get it on my own so after a few weeks I just worked out on my own...not to mention he was annoying.
lol scott the dick.


scott dissssick is my favorite.
