But not best.
So my bubba...
...turned 3mo old yesterday. So I am also 3mo postpartum. And despite the gym time, I cannot seem to break into the 140s! I teeter from 151-154, depending on how much I ate over the weekend. I'm eating healthfully but some days I'm just not satisfied until I'm on the verge of being uncomfortably full. BUT, not focusing on the numbers, I have seen plenty of results. My pants are looser. I even made sure they were freshly washed and dried when I tried them on, so that I wasn't playing mind games with myself with jeans that were sagging because I wore them twice already (because I will wear a pair until I inevitably get food or spit up on them LOL). My ab muscles though are still pretty weak. They ache after runs and I still can't do walking lunges. I'm not sure if I should take it easy or work them more... I didn't attempt real exercise until my daughter was 6mo old, so I don't have a frame of reference for what to expect at 3mo.
So here are my 3mo postpartum progress pics, a self portrait session attempting to gain some appreciation for the "curvier" Amber ;)



  1. You are in the 150's? How tall are you? You look fantastic!

  2. Thank you! I'm 5'11" so 150's is perfectly healthy for me, I'm just used to being in the 140's post modeling career and want to be in the 130's. I've made peace with the fact that I probably won't model anymore and so don't need to be 120 ever again. But I wouldn't complain if it just magically happened LOL Oh, and if I got to keep all my boobs LOL
