    Hi Shantel I feel your pain my body is nothing like it was before my pregnancies. I looked like you did the IDEA of the perfect body with tone muscles and beautful lines…not an ounce of weight extra or out of place. And the I got pregnant with my first daughter she I had an emergency c section with her and had a horrible time losing weight after she was born. Then I got pregnant with my second daughter who just turned six months and had a second c-section. I am so unhappy with this pouch thing hanging off the front of my body it makes me insane that every time i bend over it looks down at my toes with me =(…a constant feeling/reminder of my imperfections. I no comparing myself with how I was pre-pregnancy is unrealistic but I have been working extremely hard to lose weight. I am down 10 lbs but it all seems to have come out of my boobs or my butt. My boobs feel like half deflated water balloons and they dont sit quite where they used to. My husband tells me everday how beautiful I am and I love him dearly for that but I cannot seem to accept it. How can I absorb his comments when I fell that I am not beautiful. You know that saying you must love yourself before anyone else can love you…..well I understand in a sense… I have joined my fitnesspal.com and a gym and mix up between yoga and tae-bo at home. Slowly with my dedication I am beginning to feel a little better because I am trying extremely hard and that’s what counts but I have not lost anymore weight yet. I am standing still at 5’4 and 165lbs =( my goal is 120 along ways away. My babies are certainly worth all the effort and fighting I am doing now I am just having same difficulty find myself again underneath all the weight, lack of confidence, and stress. I do believe we will get to our comfort zone again so good luck girl you ARE beautiful try to remember that.
