I’m okay with this (Anonymous)

I haven’t been thin for a few years, so I think it’s been easier for me to accept what my body’s become post-pregnancy. I do sometimes feel bad about my sagging lower belly, but seeing a lot of moms have that makes me feel so much more secure. When I was pregnant, I looked great. My belly sort of balanced the size of the rest of me and I felt good. I was losing weight in my pregnancy due to nausea and when my son was born almost 6 months ago, I was only 2 pounds heavier than when I became pregnant. I weighed 252 pounds at his birth. When I left the hospital I was 235 pounds. I’ve since gained back 5 to 10 pounds. I’m not sure because I’m terrified of the scale. My belly will never look the same, but my son was worth it.
