First Time Mom and Losing It: How I am Confidently Bringing Up my Exercise Game!

How I am Confidently Bringing Up my Exercise Game!


When I went to the doctor to make sure everything was in working order before I tried conceiving my daughter I was told to lose weight. I was very determined and lost 70 pounds to be healthier and to have a healthy pregnancy. Losing 70 pounds didn't come easy and I had to eat right but most of all exercise like crazy. It started with walks, then joining a gym and then attending classes like Zumba. I had a healthy pregnancy and my beautiful daughter will be 3 years old in a few days!

There are things that are never talked about when you are pregnant and after giving birth. After I gave birth my body felt a lot different and I noticed that I had to go to the bathroom more often. Then I experienced slight bladder leakage. Did you know that 51 million women go through bladder leakage? Now that we are thinking about baby #2 it's time for me to bump up my exercise, but with my older and changed body I need some confidence and protection so I decided to try the Depend Silhouette Active Fit.

The Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs are made for adults of all ages because is it not like a bulky diaper but a thin comfortable solution that looks and feels like regular briefs. Since it has a lower rise and made of fabric like material I know I can wear them discreetly. I also love that they come in black and beige which is what I typically wear anyway.

Depend is entering year two of Underwareness which is a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma. As part of the campaign, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that educate and research bladder leakage.

Head on over to the Depend website to try a sample by clicking on the "Get a Sample" button. Then pick which one you want to sample and it gets mailed right to you.

  1. I don't have leakage issues, but there is a whole group of moms in my zumba class who do & there is always a collective sigh when a song with jumps comes on!

  2. I certainly don't exercise but I do sneeze at this time of year especially and cough which has the same effect on my bladder that exercising has on yours! Tine to try the Depends.

  3. I had no idea that they would be that discreet. I guess I had pictured something much bulkier. It's good to know there are options out there.

  4. What a great and stylish idea for women dealing bladder leakage. This is much better then those bulky adult underwear.

  5. I love that they're giving free samples for people to try these out. The silhouette is much nicer than ever before.

  6. That is cool that they have an active fit kind!

  7. I love that they are donating some of the proceeds to charities!

  8. I'm amping up my excercise game too! Bring on the swimsuit!

  9. I was fine...until after child #2!
