I came upon your site last night as I was watching a documentary on Discovery home and health channel about moms who worry about their weight during pregnancy. since i live in Costa Rica i didn’t know about it.
when i got pregnant with my first kid i was 18 and 55kg around 125 lbs, and to tell the truth i never worried about the weight until after my son was born and i kept on gaining weight, when i got pregnant the second time i was a bit more heavy aroung 165lbs both my kids were born heatlhy and with good weight. ever since my daughter was born i haven’t been comfortable with my body i feel ugly and fat and to make matters worse last year i experienced a hair loss problem from which i am recovering now. my self steem is so low that i hate to look in the mirror and every time i have sex with my husband im embarressed because of the way i look and how fat i am. I recently got invited to a high school reunion which obviously im not attending becuase i don’t want everybody to see how fat and ugly i am!!!! i went to the doctor last week to find out that i weight 87kg (191 lbs) and she told me i was OBESE and it really made me feel WORSE about the way i look! im not confident at all in my skin no matter how many times my husband tells me he loves me, i wish i had a magic wand to make my body look good again or at least decent like many of the girls in here! i wouldn’t change my life for anything in the world don’t get me wrong! I love my kids and my husband BUT i hate my body!! i’ve taken all the weight loss pills known to humanity and nothing works and whenever i star working out i quit rather fast for no reason, i guess im just stuck being a fat mommy!
