PS – Postpartum 21 & 25 Years Later (Anonymous)

February 20, 2009

Previous entry here.

The wonderful comments from all the young mums have really boosted me. I felt good about my body after my babies were born. But hit my later years and now I hate what I see nude in the mirror. I don’t have stretch marks, nor cellulite, so I am lucky, but all those with stretchmarks – they will fade in time – it is early days yet. Just enjoy your babies and also ensure you have a little time for you to be you. Also give yourself time to be not just a mum, but a whole and sexy woman who is her own person. Sometimes you can do little to change your body but keep fit and healthy and make the most of yourself. Thank you to everyone who has commented positively about my body – it has meant a lot to me.

    Thank you to all of you – I may be mature but that does not mean I have confidence in myself and my body. I wish my kids thought they were lucky in having me – maybe they will when they are much older. But all you beautiful mums have made me feel good about myself. You all have something about your bodies, even if you don’t like them, that someone else would wish for, but you just can’t see it. But your true beauty comes from your inner being – no amount of beautiful bodes can make up for a lack of a beautiful person inside. Love yourselves – you deserve it.

    You are beautiful, strong and healthy! I pray that you will know that your children do look up to you even though they may not express it properly yet. I personally think they are very lucky that they have a mother. Mine passed away after my son was born, at 5 months. I had to learn to be a mommy all on my own, and at 21, that was no easy task, well, maybe it never really is easy, but I think you get my point. You look smashing my dear! May your health continue!

    Yes, THANK you for posting these pictures. I’m 53, menopaused (sic), 3 kids, youngest 18. I have your stomach/abs but not, alas, your beautiful big breasts – though one advantage to nursing/weight gain is that we small-breasted women get bigger and (sorta) see how the other half lives. Nor do I have your nice legs. I started skinny. After each birth I was a little bigger. Wasn’t until I hit my 50s that I got this body. I want to like it.

    Hi Anne- how about some pics of you too – think I must have had a few drinks when I posted these – what made me do it for goodness sake??? The younger women on here are gorgeous and still have a figure – when did mine disappear? But I feel good about myself now more than I ever did, yet hate photos when I see my top heavy shape.

    Wow you look awesome! I saw your reply to my post (3rd pregnancy of a plus-sized 20-something). Thank you for posting these and sharing, it makes me feel like we can all be beautiful at any age!!

    I have told my own mom (52 years old) about this site because I think she has the most beautiful body. yet, she doesn’t think so.

    She lucked out like you did regarding the stretch marks. I have always thought she was beautiful even though she’s not a size 2 anymore.

    You look great! I’m jealousof your flat belly and your beautiful boobs!
