I'm returning to work in 5 weeks and will have been on maternity leave for year by then.
I want to be able to look good in pencil skirts and fitted tops and finally be able to get back into all the work clothes I had to give up after I returned to work 7 years ago after having my middle child!! I totally gave up on suit trouser/pant bottoms and only ever wore stretch jeans or leggings on dress down Fridays.
I gained nothing with this baby's pregnancy due to being careful but still had 3 stone (42lb) from my previous one which I've been trying to lose for the past 7 years!
I'm already down 14 pounds from January and hope to lose at least 10 pounds more before returning so I'll feel more positive about going back to work and a little less sad about leaving bubba a few days a week.
I also want my colleagues who knew me before both pregnancies to see me back to my normal self (resting weight used to be 140) and the collegues that have only seen me obese to see the 'real me' rather than the slightly frumpy or uncomfortable 182-187 pounder 5ft 2 me.
