A work in progress… (Anonymous)

October 9, 2009

I was so glad to come upon this site and will share it with other moms. I have ALWAYS struggled with my image, always have tried to keep up with the magazines, etc…..never really felt 100% confident except maybe my wedding day….I’m 5’3″ and weighed 120 in High School (really thin for me…Ive always had a more athletic build than a skinny one)….after college I was at 165lbs and worked really hard to get down to 135lbs for my wedding and felt really comfortable there. I gained 45lbs with my pregnancy and gave birth to my beautiful boy in February 2009. I’ve lost 30, but still have the remaining 15lbs that cant seem to go away. Its mostly in my stomach and thighs where I never carried weight in the past….it really bothers me on a daily basis and I wish it didnt. Im working hard to get it off….more excercise, less calories….I know it will come but its a struggle in the process:) Im so thankful for my baby boy but will feel so much better when the rest is gone!!! Its nice to see how others are dealing with the same:)
