PET PEEVE:"i get so skinny because i spend all my time chasing after my kids...." BLEECH.

okay, has anyone seen this picture of nicole kidman two weeks after giving birth? and , btw, what the h is keith urban's face doing? is that a big wad of chaw in his mouth? i'm hoping not....

anyway, when i saw this photo i knew it was time to write this post that i've been thinking about.

one of my hugest, HUGEST pet peeves is when a celebrity who just had a baby or has a small child is asked how they lost the baby weight/keep fit/skinny/anorexic and they inevitably say, "oh, i don't exercise much. i just chase after little lulu here and it she keeps me going and in shape!"

oh, puhhhhhllleaase. when i read this, i always want to vomit. as a woman who liked to gain records amount of weight with each 4 pregnancies, (60 pounds. what a proud moment for me.) losing weight after each pregnancy was a long and painful process that included blood, sweat, tears, teats, and more tears. if all it took was running around chasing my kid, then i would have been set. but it took WAAAAAAAYYYYY more than that.

i get that people like kidman up there are blessed with good genes. and personal trainers. and personal chefs. but i still get to be bitter.


THE END.

The consensus on my blog when I posted this picture was black market baby, with the use of prosthetics. More likely than her looking like that after two weeks.

Vanessa said...

Amen to that. 18 months later, I still need to lose 30 more. I have three kids that I chase around and I'm still a fatty.

ps, did you get my email?

buddens said...

Seriously!!!! As if to imply that the rest of us just sit back and don't chase our kids. "Oh me? How come I still look pregnant? I'm still chubby because my children are completely unsupervised and I'm lazy. Thanks for asking!"

Try having 3 sisters that look exactly like that after haveing all of their kids. It's no fun.

MiaKatia said...

I think the personal trainer and the personal chef have a lot to do with it. I know a couple of girls that look disgustingly good a few weeks after pregnancy like that and they make me want to cry.

Kristen said...

Wow! Wish I looked like that...3 years after my last baby! We can't all be sticks!

tammy said...

AMEN! I was just thinking about this last night, as I was looking disgustingly in the mirror. I only gain 20 pounds when I'm pregnant, but my body suddenly loves having that 20 pounds and won't let me get rid of it after and leaves me wondering why I didn't pick parents with skinny genes.

Tanja said...

I hear ya....but I do think that the personal trainers and chefs make up a large part of that. Damn, them!

Tori :) said...

Yeah. That pisses me off. It just makes NORMAL people feel like losers. And you know most of the Hollywood mom's aren't the ones chasing their kids anyway. It's the nanny.

I totally agree, it bugs me too. And I don't even know what it's like to loose baby weight, but I do know what it's like to loose weight in general. And it sucks. Period. Final.

Collette said...

I about died when I saw that picture too! Whatever..these celebrities that are more worried about getting back into shape and not into spending a little time with their newborns is annoying! You don't ever get that time back..no matter how much money you have.

rachel said...

Ha! great minds think alike...I did a similar post yesterday for today....I am with the conspiracy theory that mrs. urban faked her pregnancy and secretly adopted the child. There is NO WAY she can look like that only 2 weeks after, is there?

"tears, teats, and more tears."


Thanks for making my morning. I needed a good laugh. That is hysterical.

I hear ya!

Some people are just blessed (like my (ex)sister-in-law who went home from the hospital wearing her size 2s after all 3 babies). I'm bitter too - I'm still trying to lose the 65 pounds I gained with Bryn, and the 60 from Grace before her. Not fair!

tara said...

chears to a fellow 60 pounder!! I think I hit 65 pounds with number two. Two beach balls with nipples. that was me. oh, and fatty mc-fat face. can't forget that.

Cole said...

Okay I might not have gained the whole 60 lbs...more like 30 with the first and 35 with the second but, my baby turns 6 in a few days and I'm still not back to fighting weight......I got close, once about a year ago.....

Holly H. said...

Complete and utter bull crap! I'm pretty sure she keeps a liposuction machine in her laundry room. WHAT-EV!!!

Holly H. said...

BTW - I gained 50 lbs with my first and my ass looks like a road map now because of it.

Note to Nicole - BITE ME!

Ida said...

Right on my sister from a 64, 39, 50 lb gain pregnancies I am so pissed with those who look like they never had kids.(flat abs) They can suck it.

Omgirl said...

I love that you said "tears, teats, and more tears." Whether that was a type-o or not, I'm not sure, but I know my after-baby weight loss definitely involves teats. I like to nurse my weight off. Because once I stop, my metabolism comes to a screeching halt.

carly k. said...

Not that I have experience in the post-baby madness, but WTF! I read a little thing about that picture and it said she was back in the "yoga studio" ONE week after giving birth! I take poops that take me longer than that to recover from! It just solidifies me ideas that Nicole Kidman is an alien.
