I was healthy before, during and after pregnancy. I really did live my "naturally thin" lifestyle that I speak of in my book and I made recipes from my second book. As far as exercise, I try to do my "Body by Bethenny" DVD twice a week. I'm lucky if I get 15 minutes of it done. I'm quite overloaded. Always do what you can when you can, don't obsess, don't be extreme and it will all fall back into place. Bingeing and starving are the problems.
I wrote Place of Yes when I hadn't yet completed the most major milestones of my life. The point is that by coming from a place of yes, I got to where I needed and wanted to be. It would be inauthentic to not write from that perspective and after those experiences. Now I am back in the thick of it and it is going very well.
