Trista Sutter and son Maxwell land the cover of this weeks edition if US Magazine. This is Maxwell’s second cover shot in just 6 weeks. Trista talks to Us about her struggle to loose weight and her disappointment about not being able to fit into her pre-pregnancy clothes yet.
How are you feeling about your body?
“My friend said that when I came home from the hospital, I’d be back in my old jeans. Fifteen pounds did fall off immediately, but the fact that it’s been three months and I’m still not in them is a bummer.”
What bothers you the most?
“My belly. It has a layer of fat, which, of course, your body has to put on, but it’s blubbery and I hate it. I want to be able to go bathing suit shopping for a vacation and not feel totally disgusted…I just don’t feel good in a lot of my clothes.”
Does Ryan help?
If I eat something that I shouldn’t, Ryan shakes his finger at me and says, ‘Uh, uh, uh!’ He’s been awesome, 100 percent supportive. He watches Max when I go to the gym and is constantly saying that I look great. But when you don’t feel good about yourself, you don’t feel like you want to be intimate. I want to feel, and look, sexy again for him. Even though he is being nice and saying he’s still attracted to me, I want to feel like he’s telling me the truth and not just saying it because he’s a good husband.”
Stop stressing about the weight. Be happy that you have a beautiful, healthy baby. The weight will some off soon enough. We think your new curves look great!
Ryan probably really does still think she is attractive. After all, she just carried his baby for 9 months and successfully delivered him after being diagnosed with HELLP syndrome (a complication of pre-eclampsia).
