All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Perspective… It’s Priceless


I am cleaning out my closet, getting ready to donate all of my “fat clothes.” Last year this time, I did the same thing but with my “skinny clothes” because I thought I’d never be that thin again. I was sort of right… I’m thinner now than most of those clothes would accommodate. But God, I wish I’d kept a few if those things, including a pair of jeans, tags still on, that I swore were impossible since I’d now had kids. Dammit. But I digress…

So I  opened my bra drawer and found heaps of 38D and 38DD bras… Bras I wore while I was doing IF treatments, pregnant, nursing, and just, well, bigger. I was, in a word, stunned. I took one out to show Hottie and asked, “really? They were THIS big?”. He was not surprised and just said, “yeah, they were.”

I’ve been a tiny bit relaxed about food this past week, but started a new challenge today. I needed some motivation, perspective, to get it together again. I got that today.

Here is my old bra (38DD) eating my new 34C for lunch. Geesh!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Wow!!!!!! Big difference & you look great!

  2. Oh and “they” look great 😉

  3. I love it when you can downsize a bra 🙂

  4. Geez, Court, you look FABULOUS!

  5. I just got rid of all my pregnant/breastfeeding/prenatal bras! They were also 38DDs and XLs. Now I wear a 34C or a medium and it’s amazing. I tried to wear a strapless bra the other day, and this was from my pre-pregnancy body, and it was also huge! I love having a smaller chest. It’s one of my favorite things about losing weight.

    Also, you look fabulous! Nice work!

  6. LOL, I totally love this post. I’m working on getting back down in sizes. It’s insane to see how big some of my bras got at my heaviest and postpartum! Also, agreed, my breasts look nice in a bra, but without one… it’s sad. I’m seriously thinking about a $5k boob lift someday. Hm…

  7. You are look smokin’ hot lady!! And yeah, I agree with Josey. I am dreaming of that lift!!!

  8. ahh, i cannot wait to toss all of my giant bras! you look great. I am still nursing though and dealing with righty ginormaboob!

    • I’m still nursing too, but we’re not sure how much he’s getting. I nurse 4 times a day, so I sort of worry how they’ll look once I’m done.

  9. This is so me right now! Now that I am soclosetobeingdonenursing I desperately need a new bra. The bra that I’ve been wearing since having D is a 30F which is completely insane to me that I ever fit into it. Just the other day I told JJ I think I’m smaller than I was before having kids if that’s even possible and he agreed. Gee, thanks honey! 🙂 All that to say, I have got to go be re-sized again and get out of this nursing bra, and probably back to a sad B. I never thought I would consider a boob job, but I told him I might just need one too! And one thing I never knew until being fitted this last time is how snug the bras should fit – and actually support you. Duh, it makes sense, but I’ve been wearing the wrong size probably my whole life! A new, snug bra does wonders doesn’t it?
