My Slow Road of Weight Loss (Anonymous)

I gave birth to my beautiful son in February 2009 & have slowly lost all but 15 lbs of my baby weight. I have been staying accountable with my diet & exercise by logging everything online at a free weight loss support group. While I am not 110% body confident, I no longer stress about it b/c I have such a beautiful gift because of it. I used to be very pre-occupied with how my body looked, now I am simply happy to eat & exercise to be healthy, not to be the skinniest of all of my friends.

    I’m so happy for you and your sense of personal success. However, I want you to know that your body is beautiful and it was beautiful before you dieted at all. It’s so wonderful how giving birth can free us from our pre-conceptions of physical beauty. I hope that this is the last diet you are ever on — not because you never gain weight again, but because you love your body forever.
