2 Boys, 1 Stretchy Belly (Becky)

September 7, 2011

Age: 25
Kids: 2 Boys, aged 4.5 and 2.5

I am not going to get into a huge, long story. Many other women have been through a lot more, and deserve to be heard. I just want to say…I LOVE MY BODY!
It took me 5 years total to get to this point, and I wanted to celebrate by participating in SOAM :)

I didn’t work out, didn’t diet. I just put on a smiley face, lived my life and reminded myself every day that each of those awful stretch marks gave me my two wonderful sons.
I’d much rather have the marks AND the boys than neither!

So when the going gets tough, I tell it to P!$$ off and go play with my kids, complete with sprinkler and bikini ;)

I love SOAM! It has helped me overcome my negative feelings towards my stretch marks. I hated them for a long, long time and even cried over them. I honestly owe my new found self esteem to this site and am so SO glad it exists! =D I’ve been reading it for over a year and been in tears so many times, I just wanted to maybe help others like I’ve been helped =D

    I play in a bikini too. life is too short to care what others think about my stretch marks. When I look back on my life I want to remember all the fun in the water and sun we had, not how much I fretted over a few damn scars on my stomach.
