I’ve been working out consistently for the past year. I try to stay on track with a healthy diet most of the time, but I do admit at times I fall off the wagon! When I delivered my son in Oct. 2009 I weighed in at 183. I now bounce between 148 and 152. I would like to lose 10-15 more pounds, but I guess I am just stuck with the “mummy tummy” unless I go the tummy tuck route. Some days I look in the mirror and think I look pretty good for having had two babies…other days, not so much. As you can see in my pics, my stomach is in pretty good shape until you get to my belly buttion, then things get a little rounder than I’d like them to be. I do have stretch marks, but they are very faded and can only be seen up close. I would love to get ride of the “love handles” but I am pretty sure losing more body fat is the only thing that will take care of those! I also am not happy with my thighs. It seems like no amount of exercise has done anything to firm the top of my legs, and I feel like this may be as good as it gets. I know I am not the only one out there struggling with body image issues. Thanks to everyone who has posted on SOAM…you all are amazing women!
