I have 2 babies, my son is 2.5 and my daughter is 1. My whole life I have been happy with my body except for when my mom would tell me I was getting chunky (which I now know I wasn’t). Before I got pregnant, I was 165 and 5’7. I was muscular and looked great! I worked out about 3 hours a day 4 days a week and pigged out! I could out eat anyone! Then I got pregnant…. I was fueled by McDonald’s and put on about 70 pounds, yikes! I gave birth to my 10 pound boy and went to weight watchers. I lost all the weight plus 10 pounds but I couldn’t get over the stretch marks. My skinny mom had 4 kids including an 11 pounder and no stretch marks. It put me in a depression. Rediculous I know, but I always was the chick with the good body. Then I got pregnant with my daughter and I stumbled across this site. I can’t even begin to tell you how it changed my life! I got out of my depression and realized my body was normal! I read submissions almost every day and cherished my body and what it was doing and what it has done. I actually was sad when the one stretch mark my daughter gave me faded. I am now 25 pounds less than when I met my hubby! I have now adopted a very healthy lifestyle and enjoy my stretch marks for what they represent. I have no prepregnancy pics or any pregnancy pics from my son because I was too embarrassed to take any which I regret now but I am including pic from about 1 year postpartum. Thank you for taking the time to read my long story. God bless all the mommies out there and Bonnie for creating this truly life changing website!
