22 With 3, Starting to Slowly Accept and Change my Body (Anonymous)

January 26, 2012

Previous post here.

When I was 6 1/2 months pregnant with my 3rd, my kids father left me and I in turn fell into a depression for pretty much the rest of my pregnancy. By the end of my pregnancy I had only gained 13lbs, and when my daughter was born at 39wks, she only weighed 6lbs, which the doctors said was under weight for her gestational age, but she is healthy. I was still so down after having her that my weight quickly went down to 170, and now 13months later I am still a single mother to my kids, and as sad as I get with my weight I realize that I have lost a good amount and I believe I look way better then I did before, plus the couple men that I have been with since having my daughter have not complained :) . I am now at 166 and would like to lose at least 20 more lbs, but I’m in no hurry.

The attached pictures are me at 13mos postpartum.

~Age: 22
~Number of pregnancies and births: 4 pregnancies, 3 births
~The age of your children, or how far postpartum you are: 5 1/2yrs, 3 1/2yrs, 13 1/2 months, 13 months post-partum.

    You look lovely. And babies come in all different sizes. 6lbs is within the normal range. Mine were 5lbs 11oz and 6 lbs 3 oz and I have friends who has babies as small as 4lbs 11oz and as big as 11lbs and bigger. All variations of normal.

    Your scale is broken: you look hardly 125 pounds – unless you are 7 feet tall! :)
