14 months postpartum
Mother of 3 year old and 14 month old
I came across this site after the birth of my first child. I was going through postpartum depression and it felt like everyone was pointing out my new mommy body and weight. This site made me feel so much better but still I couldn’t except my self. Being pregnant with my son I was 75 lbs larger (200 lbs) than I was before becoming a mommy. Even though he was a ten pounder it looked looked I hadnt lost any weight after the birth. Summer came and even though I live next to the beach, I went once in an athletic cover it all swim suit. That bathing suit was almost to my knees. Time went by and my husband went on deployment. My husband loves my body but I’ve always been ashamed around him. Once he was gone I realized I had to do something. I ran around my house, used workout videos, and ate right and for the first time since becoming a mom I felt fabulous. I didn’t lose all the weight, the stretch marks are still here but I am beautiful. I’m more beautiful than before. I just needed to love accept the body that I have and that carried my children. This year I’m showing the world that I am beautiful on the beach. Hope everyone has a fabulous bikini season.
