my names Ana I’m 21 years old. At 16 I had my first daughter and being that I was so young all my “friends” did not have stretch marks, had perky breasts and did not have well undereye circles. So I felt ugly. I remember before my 1st pregnancy I was 135 pounds. At 5’3″. After I was 195! I could not belive the monster I had become. Strechmarks and flabby here and there and nasty boobs. I didn’t even know how my husband even tried for another. My self-esteem was to the grounds! I was so ashamed. But we decided to have another baby. Me, being selfish didn’t want to cuz I didn’t want to get anymore disgusting. But at the age of 19 my husband and I had our second baby. Before that pregnancy I stayed at 160 and got up to 189. Same thing all over again. EXCEPT one day I remember talking to a girl she was 23 and she was complaining about the SAME things I had. Except I didn’t want to be 23 and still complain. Just hearing her made me mad. To me she was saying she was ashamed at her daughter! And that’s when I caught myself! “wow, all this time that’s what I sounded like?” my first daughter is 3 my second turns 1 and I decided to stop being a cry baby and love every single mark I had! I started working out, changed my eating habit and with the 2 years I breastfed the girls it started shedding. 7 months later. I’m 121 pounds, I might not have a model body but I tell you what? My body NOW is stronger, better looking, than before I had my first daughter! I love my kids and for them I made a change in my health. My mommy body surprises me over and over again! I AM SEXIER NOW AS A MOTHER OF 2!
