Six Children (Erika)

September 3, 2010

I am 43, 5′ 4-1/2″, 200 lbs., size 12, and I’ve had six pregnancies, six births. My first child was born 26 years ago and my last, 6 years ago. The last child really seemed to zonk my thyroid and I’ve had a hard time losing weight since his birth.

I used to feel very self conscious about my breasts but looking at this site helped me to see that breasts come in every shape and size! I would like to slim down a bit, the stretch marks do not bother me much anymore, it’s the cellulite that makes me uncomfortable.

    You look beautiful! I can see we have a lot of similarities in body type. I bet I’ll look similar to you in my forties (I’m 25). I think you look lovely!

    I have 5 kids and ….you look REALLY pretty. I wish my breasts were so symmetrical and lovely.

    I have the same tummy and bum, but I would LOVE to trade chests!

    You look great! Really and truly! At 5’1″ and 210 pounds, I have a very similar shape as you do – just bigger in the chest. You should feel good about your body; it’s amazing.
