December 3, 2010

After having my first child at age 16 eventually i got back down to my pre pregnancy weight and had a body i loved and felt beautiful in, but now that i have givin birth 2 more times in the last two years i think i have done permenent damage, i just feel i will never be happy with my body unless it looks like it did when i weighed 98 lbs…i just wish i could be thankful for the body i have! the picture is from when i was 10 weeks postpartum

age: 23
number of births: 3
age of children: 7- 22mos -4mos

    You are kidding right? Ha…I am 24, have had 2, and I WISH I looked like that!!!! You look AMAZING, and only 10 weeks pp…you look great! 98 lbs is wayyyy too skinny, unless you are like 4′ 9″

    OMG!!! I wish I looked like you, but people say that to me and it doesnt make me feel better either. My baby is 5 months old. Its so hard to accept how our new bodies look because even if we look pretty good we only look and compare ourselves to our old bodies. Its just a really tough pill to swallow no matter how we look. Just for the record, you do not look “pretty good” you look very good, I would even go so far to say you look hot!

    You look fabulous, and you are only 4 months pp (with your 3rd baby!!!!!)! Dont be so hard on yourself! Your curves are so stunning, good for you mama! I do pilates and it has given me the slender toned look that I had when I was younger :)

    I hope to look as good as you do after my third. I only have two now and I have heard from many people that it’s the third pregnancy that really does a number on your body, but for you it’s obviously not true! It’s hard to see ourselves as beautiful, even when other people can see it.

    I haven’t weighed 98 pounds since I was 13, lol…and I was by no means fat! I wore a size three up until college. You have a beautiful body, one that any woman–let alone a mother whose body has done amazing things–should be proud of. I hope that you can learn to see the beauty in yourself instead of striving for unreasonable standards.

    I hope that I look as good as you after I have my second. I’m so afraid that I won’t bounce back, but look at you! Three kids and you look amazing! You are a blessed woman. I just hope that someday you will see how blessed you truly are! :)

    thank you, reading that made me feel alot better. and also i have made significant progress since i posted this, i lost all of my baby weight and more…i now know that the loose skin on my belly is not going anywhere and everytime i look at it i can accept that is the sacrifice of a mother and im proud of that.

    Ok, I was never able to have children, and I would love to look as good as you do. Please remember the great blessing it is to be able to have children. I would give anything to be able to hold a baby in my arms and call it mine. You are beautiful!

    I know how you feel. I used to have a great body, and a lot of people think I still do just because I’m not ‘fat’ or stretch mark laden or whatever. Vut either way, we arent who we WERE and it sucks. I’m sorry mama. But you are still much younger than me and have time to get back to ALMOST who you were.
