    YOu are eautiful! I think you have a beautiful figure as well! I have struggled with poor body image for years. From long before pregnancy to long after it.. I have recently stopped being so hard on myself.. honestly, the minute I stopped focusing on how much I hate myself and my body the more balanced my body became.. i have started to lose weight and feel better. Stressing about how much you dont love yourself can actually stall weight loss because of the release of cortisol. It might seem hard,but really see what others are seeing looking at you.. a beautiful mother! You really are gorgeous!

    Thank you for sharing mom… I definitely agree with Brandi,you are beautiful as all the mothers are on this site. I read that you are workin’ out and eatin right and everything, but I do offer to help you with your fitness and nutritional programs. 9-10 it’s something really simple that can possibly make all of the difference. don’t make the mistake of most who put more emphasis on what they look after working out instead of how good it was for EVERYTHING on the inside. The looking good part, well, that’s just the cherry on top. Being healthy and well inside, with beautiful healthy children is the most important. And by the way, Right, stay away from that scale!! It WILL NOT be the best indicator of your progress. Would love to help. Thanks again for sharing.

    I know it’s hard, but listen to your husband. You are sexy and gorgeous! And you look so confident in these photos too. The image doesn’t match your description. You are beautiful!

    You sound just like me.. I have 3 children. Ages 3, 2 and 10months.. I was obsessed with losing the last of my baby weight.. I was weighing my self all day.. Everytime I thought about it and feeling horrible each time. My husband noticed and took the scale out of the house..because its all I would talk about. I started taking Zumba classes which is soo fun and the weight is falling off.. Weighed myself a few days ago and I’m down 8lbs since he took the scale..You look great in my opinion..do fun stuff, dance classes.. Switch up the routine..

    I know exactly how you feel. You knwo something, sometimes it’s just an obsession … girl, you are AMAZINGLY beautiful… your body is so perfect… you should take that blindfold off and start seeing that you really are beautiful. You know i felt that way too and actually i am stillworking on it… i used to hate myself for being soo ugly and fat and how i couldn’t be as beautiful and perfect as other girls i saw… u know what i started doing? I started complimenting one aspect of my body that i liked instead of looking at what i hated.. yes, very hard when u aren’t satisfied with all ur body but make yourself see something u appreciate about your body. try it.. look in the mirror and say.. “you have such beautiful eyes” smile then hop in the shower and DON’T THINK OF HOW FAT YOU THINK YOU ARE AND BLAH BLAH… and so on.. if you are about to bash ur body… stop urself and say something nice about it… then soon u will start believing it.. then u will start seeing it.. ;)

    good luck! U R BEAUTIFULL there is no doubt about tht my dear!

    I’m going to tell you a secret that my husband told me: Real men love it when a woman looks like a woman, with curves and a softness to her. You are that woman, and you are beautiful! I can see why your hubby calls you sexy!

    Stop working out and eating right to lose weight. Move your body because you can and it feels good, and nourish that body with whole, fresh food and plenty of water to keep it moving and healthy. It takes time, but shifting your focus from your weight to your health should help you feel better about yourself.

    Oh, and only say nice things to yourself. When I was shifting from hating my body to loving me, sometimes all I had as I was looking in the mirror was, “You have pretty eyes,” or “Your smile lights up your whole face.” Later it switched to, “Dude, you just did 20 push ups!” and “Wow, I can’t believe I just ran 5 miles!” I’ve never been a size two, and my midsection has stretchmarks and loose skin. But now I have a hard time saying ugly things to myself!

    I know how you feel, every positive comment on here could mean nothing less to you than a comment because its biut how you feel about yourself…. I hate my body and the person I became after I had my son….i hope someone helps you before its too late, I haven’t gotten help because I can’t afford it… My stomach is destroyed, layers of skin hang along with stretch marks, I weight 106 lbs, but I have a huge flap I can’t get rid if, its bwn 2 years…. And as for nt emotional state its a mess

    i know how you feel. i hate my body so much i get sick just looking at myself. im 33 weeks right now and i look disgusting in my opinion. strangers tell me i look great but i think they’re just trying to be nice. i cant stand it. i dont know why im even alive, let alone being given such a big damn job that i KNOW i cant do. i doubt i’ll even survive childbirth let alone be a decent mother. i just hate everything but mostly myself more than anything else.
