Hi Everyone! First of all I would like to say this website is sucha beautiful and motivational site. Its wonderful to know I am not the only one who hates their body after pregnancy.
I am a 23 year old mother to a healthy 7 month old baby boy. Before I gotten pregnant i dieted and exercise everyday which lead me to lose 37 pounds. 155-160 pounds was my weight before i gotten pregnant..5 months later and 188 pounds I found out I was pregnant. Throughout my pregnancy I gained alot of weight by the time I was ready to be induced I weigh 247. During that time I could care less if I gained a pound or 5 pounds I was too buzy making sure my baby will be healthy. Sure enough he weigh 7 pounds 4 oz..and 23 inches long. 17 hours of labor but it was worth all the pain and hardship.
I breastfed my son til he was 6 months old.. I was hoping breastfeeding will lose all the weight i gained but the last 22 pounds needed extra help.It is now 7 months and I weigh 205. ABout two weeks ago I started working out 5 days a week 30-1 hr and a half and watch what i ate in moderation. I was able to finally lose the 6 pounds I was hoping to melt while breastfeeding. Im starting to feel great again becAUSe im working out and because my hubby started to notice my weight loss. I know i have a long way to go but with hard work I can do it. I am 17 pounds away to my prepregnancy weight.
I now have stretch marks everywhere..my boobs,,my stomach my lower back. I feel embarassed but reading this site made me feel better because Im not the only one who has it. =)
I wish everyone the best of luck.
