I gained 54 pounds during pregnancy.. I caved in to almost all of my cravings and didn’t care how I ate because everyone told me I was so young and thin that my body would snap back. So I ate with confidence in the fact that I’d lose all the weight. I also played volleyball, basketball, and soccer to have my physique. Sports ended when I got pregnant and I had nothing active to jump back into. My husband also gained about 30 pounds during pregnancy and still has yet to lose weight as well. We love each other despite our body changes and he is always reminding me of my beauty and that my body is a sexy baby maker.
I run a group on Facebook called, The Mommy Network and it has fulfilled me in certain ways as a mom, but this is my first step to self-esteem recovery. I hope I can make someone feel better about themselves by posting this and in that, I feel better about myself.
