January 29, 2007

This is me in my 40’s after giving birth to 4 children. My first 3 were born when I was very young and the last was over a decade ago.
I got stretch marks with the very first one and gained a few more along the way.
I’m happy with my body now but was embarrassed by it for many years and yet it’s only begun to look like this in the last 3 years.
Before then I was very slim with smaller, perkier breasts and a flat stomach.
It’s ironic that I should now be perfectly accepting of my body when it no longer looks as good.
I think every new mother should have access to this site. My acceptance of myself has become even more so since viewing all these beautiful ladies.

    Ditto, Myrrah! I’m also in my 20s with one child and I don’t look nearly as good! What an inspiration!

    You look just like my mother did 10 years ago. Now she’s in her fifties. She had three children, the last 21 years ago. I am glad you love your body. I don’t think my mother loves hers.

    Wow, we have the same boobs and tummy (at least that’s how I looked after my 3rd). My fourth is only 11 days old and I hope to get back to where you are now. You look wonderful!!!

    Mamma you look awesome! I only wish I looked this good…I have 3 children. First was born in 1995 at age 19, second was born at age 21, and my third was age 31. I was 200 when I had my first-and now after my third I weigh 270. Trying very hard to love my body and be thankful for it.
