Not seeing many fat women on your site, I felt it was important to add some photos of a fat woman. This belly housed three children, from almost 9 pounds to 10.5 pounds – the last child is now 20 years old. I’ve also had a gastric bypass and initially lost 200 pounds, so my skin is very stretched from that as well. All stretch marks came during pregnancy (except a few on my hips that came with puberty) and the sagging pannus has always been there – since my mid-teens.

I write as if it doesn’t pain me to see how much flesh I own, but it does. This site is helping me feel some better, but we need to see a lot more fat here. C’mon women… show some flesh!

    Hugs to you and thanks for sharing. When reading your post and viewing your pictures, I was reminded of the Venus of Willendorf – an ancient symbol of fertility – very real and very beautiful.

    I too have had Gastric Bypass, lost 150 pounds, and then had 2 children in under 2 years. Thank you for having the bravery to post those pics. I have been battling image issues since having my son and not loosing the weight. It is nice to know that I am not alone.
