2 years pp and finally… (Anonymous)

2 years pp and finally at a “healthy” weight…

I was overweight before my first pregnancy. I all the pregnancy weight plus 20 pounds after that delivery. TWO YEARS after my second delivery I am finally at what is considered “normal” weight for my height. What I should have weighed before conceiving #1. I am generally happy with my body except for my stomach. The faded stretch marks don’t bother me so much. It’s that grossness that hangs over my c-section scar. What’s up with that?

    Wow, you look amazing! Gorgeous body. Congrats on getting to a “healthy” weight. I’m working on that myself!

    Hey, I just wanted to let you know you look great! I have that same pouch, and I didn’t have a c-section! I’m also 22 and have a 17 month old. I’ve heard it goes away eventually a little (I hope), but for now… eh. I tell my husband I hide snacks under there! =)

    I loved what Sarah said I tell my husband I hide snacks under there! I wish I looked like you I have had two babies and look like a cow! I too though had a c section and was not blessed with my skin that sags over my belly. I want to lose weight but I hate working out alone! My story is opposite of you as well. I was looking good before babies I was a size 7 to 9 and then had babies now I wear a 16 to 18, what I wouldn’t do to just fit in a size 12 lol… You look great babies are great!

    You look great. I have a squishy overhang, a stunning little boy for it. Fair trade I say!

    I have the same stomach! It made me feel so great to read your story. I too am finally at a healthy weight and I tend to get so bummed out by the way my stomach looks. Thanks so much for sharing your story. I often feel as though I am the only one with stretch marks and saggy stomach skin. You look beautiful!
