Perfectly Imperfect (Blondiebroken)

August 24, 2011

I am a teen mother, I got pregnant my first time having sex at the age of 17. I am now 19 years old and my son is 19 months old. When I was pregnant I had gained around 70-80 pounds and now that I am 19 months P.P. I still have 20 or 25 pounds to lose. It’s hard for me to lose that extra pouch of skin, I just get so jealous seeing these other moms who have a tight body, even after pregnancy. I am ashamed of my stretchmarks, but I am NOT ashamed of my son. It’s summer time now, I still dislike my body, but I am able to show it off when in public and I’m not ashamed of it. I am only ashamed of my body when in private areas, I will not admit my fears to random people and this is a big step for me to post something as personal as this. When I see these ladies on this site posting pictures of themselves and they’re afraid to even wear a low cut shirt, it makes me really sad. A lot of women after pregnancy can’t get back to pre-pregnancy size and it is a sad thing but it’s also a new step in your life that not many other women(those without children)will ever accomplish, you have :) don’t be ashamed of the marks. I just wanted to say that even with a child, you can still be sexy and show it off. I have the new form that I am gonna have to live with, whether I like it or not. One day I do hope to love my body 100% of the time.

    I don’t know where you’d hide these twenty pounds because you are insanely skinny! I’d stop focusing on weight loss (IMO you don’t need it!) and focus on happiness and being with your little boy. You look fabulous and you’re really rocking that bikini! :D

    I love it! I’m a good 10 over where I think I should be, but put myself in a bikini this summer, and was happy to do it! You’re very right about the way women tend to feel about the changes in their body after pregnancy, and it’s interesting because I see A LOT of the harshest criticism come from the younger mothers, who also have recovered remarkably better than they thing. ;)

    You look wonderful, and your little son is just too darling!
