My Body Now (Erienne)

July 13, 2007

My name is Erienne and almost 2 years ago I gave birth to my daughter Gentry by C-section. I started my pregnancy at a fit 130lbs and ended it at a heavy 180lbs. Now almost 2 years later I still weight 180lbs. I miss my body, my husband misses my body. It doesnt matter if I eat nothing, I just seem to stay here. I dont want to be a super model but I would like a little tone and definition to myself. I dont have time to really “work out” but I do walk everyday. I work 50-55 hours a week and I have a household to run and a toddler to chase. We are trying to have another baby and the thought of gaining another 50lbs scares the bejesus out of me! I am thankful to know that I am not a freak and that not everyone except me looks like Kelly Ripa after kids. I dont have any pics of my body, but here is a before and after of me.

    Your daughter is such a cutie! And your body is so womanly and curvy. I would appreciate hips like that. You look beautiful! And let me tell you from personal experience, you more than likely will not put on the whole 50 pounds the second time. Good luck on your second pregnancy!

    You are beautiful and so is your little girl. As long as you look good with your clothes ON, right? That’s my post-baby motto!

    I think you are really pretty in the face, and you have a great body, your weight seems to be distributed perfectly – very curvy and sexy. You are being too hard on yourself, i know it’s hard to deal with being bigger than you were before baby, but look what you have – your daughter is soooo cute!! And if your husband misses your body, tell him to produce another human being and see how much weight he gains!! haha, good luck with your next pregnancy!!

    Wow! What a beautiful little girl! Don’t be afraid to have another baby… I doubt you’ll gain another 50 lbs. You are so beautiful and your husband loves you… you have the shape of a mother–we all do–be proud of it!

    Your little girl is stunning – such lovely eyes! I’m sure she’ll grow up to be as beautiful as you.

    I think you’re gorgeous! You’re face positively glows in the picture of you with your husband.

    And I personally think Kelly Ripa looks like a boy – you are much more womanly!

    I was 130lbs also before I got pregnant..at age 16. I gained about 50lbs with my pregnancy and didn’t lose much. I’m about 165 now. I agree with you..I could starve myself and not even lose one pound!! But most of my weight is my belly and thighs..which I hate! But you daughter is absolutely adorable!!!

    You are so exceptionally beautiful. I actually think you look better post-baby. So womanly and rubanesque and vibrant.

    When I read that you were 180, I envisioned a voluptuous woman, with a lot of extra body fat. That is the image I see when I think of “180″. But in your second picture, you don’t look at all like that. You look very good. You do not look remotely overweight. You look like a mom. You look curvy and matured.
    It makes me sad that I assume anyone over 125 must be overweight, because that isn’t at all true.

    You are so lucky to be a mommy! I miscarried at 2mths with my fiance, and it was a very hard time for us. I sadly still carry the extra few pounds I gained. Good luck with your next pregnancy!
