I first found out I was pregnant when I was 16 years old. It was March of 2005. I weighed 125lbs and was very toned. I gained over 60 pounds while pregnant with Aidan, topping out at about 190. I delivered Aidan on November 28th, 2005. After giving birth naturally to Aidan, I wasn’t so concerned with my weight, so I just let the weight gradually melt away. In February of 2007, I found out I was pregnant again. I had just gotten back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. I still had that extra loose skin around the lower belly, but I was back down to the pre-preg. weight. OK, so..I told myself I wouldn’t gain so much weight with my second pregnancy. I lied to myself. I gained just as much and topped out at the same weight. Towards the end of my pregnancy was very difficult for me, my fiance wouldn’t even touch me, he wouldn’t hug me, we weren’t intimate. I was so depressed. I ended up having to have a c-section because my doctor was concerned that my second son, Gabriel would be too big. The c-section went wonderful. Gabriel was born a beautiful 8 pounds 13 ounces. I was so happy to be back alone in my own body, but now…I’m not so happy. The weight melted off in the first few weeks. I actually dropped 6 pounds in two days. Amazing, I know. But now, Gabriel is two months old, and I’m at a stand still. I weigh 150 pounds, and it fluctuates between 150 one day, 147 another day, 149, etc. I look at old pictures if myself and cry. I work out twice a day, every day…and it just discourages me so much because I can’t wait for the results. Everythng takes time, I suppose. My two beautiful boys are definitely worth the trouble it will be to get back my body. And this website really helps me see the beauty in EVERY woman’s body.
