I am Kimi. I am a 24 year old mom of 2. My DS is 2 (8-3-06) he was born 8 days late. DD is 10 months (1-25-08) and she was 2 weeks & 2 days late. I gained & lost over 100 pounds in about 2 years. As you can see my children are close in age & as many mothers know that can take a huge tole on your body. I loved being pregnant. I took advantage of it. I worked out during both my pregnancies to keep healthy. I nurse my son from the time he was born, through my pregnancy and right along with my daughter after she was born. I contribute that to a huge part of my weight loss. That and the fact that once my daughter was born I had a wild 18 month old boy to chase around.
I was very unhappy with my body after my son. I was by no means over weight but I had stretch marks & hated them. I got pregnant with my daughter shortly after & I forgot how much I hated my body since I loved being pregnant so much. After she was born, I wore my stretch marks as a badge of honor. I didn’t get that many compared to some women but I do have several on my hips and bum. I was so self conscious in front of my husband but he assured me that I am more beautiful than I was before I had children. That I should be proud of my body!
I went on to work out with my child and get my body to the shape that I was happy with. As a gift to my wonderful husband I had some pictures taken in lingerie. I was 9 months PP in them.
