2 years PP (Anonymous)

I was 18 when i had my daughter. i gained over 75lbs. My daughter was born at 9lbs 5oz. i’m having a very hard time accepting my PP body. my husband keeps telling me that my body is beautiful, but i don’t believe him. i lost all the baby weight within 4 months. i don’t have issues with the stretch marks or my weight, it’s the saggy skin.

    Always believe your husband when he tells you you’re beautiful. He sees something in you beyond the saggy skin. He’s sees wonder in you b/c you gave him his daughter and so much more. He couldn’t do it, so he appreciates what your body has done so much more than any man or person ever could.
    Also it beats him telling you you’re ugly, which would be very untrue.

    Take care and job well done

    YEah I am kinda at the same sit. my post was trapped in my own body and my body after c-section…. I went from 135-235 ..my daughter is now 8 months old and I only have 9 lbs to loose but I can’t help but feel annoyed at the fact that everyone assumes it can be fixed with excersize ..my biggest pet peeve. I have a hard time with my fiance with intamcy and feeling beautiful. It’s fruserating to not be able to do anything about it and have peopel assmung your not garteful to have your child or that you would take it back..at least I feel that way. I donno were made to feel so guilty when the pressures are surrounding us in every direction we look. It kind of contradicts itself. I donno what advise I can give becuase I feel the same way. I keep telling myself I’m the same inside but i feel lost in my body.

    I happen to google saggy skin and came across this, and was like holy crap! Someone gets me. I’m lighter than I was with my first 8 lb 12 oz boy… yet still.. saggy skin. I could care less about stretch marks. The saggy skin.. man.. I’m 24.. this is BS.. that is what I always say to myself in the mirror. I’m still battling with myself for self love toward my PP body. Seems like all my friends had small children which seems to equal zero saggy skin… I secretly wish I set them on fire sometimes! LMAO..Anywho.. just letting you know.. there is someone else out there with the same battle as you. Maybe one day we can afford 10 thousand dollar tummy tucks ;)
