In January of 2010, I had just turned 18 and was just starting to feel really secure with my looks. I had started to loose weight and was very happy with the way things were going. Then I met a boy. One thing led to another and I got pregnant. Before my pregnancy, I weighed around 215 lbs. At the time of delivery, I weighed in at 270! This was very hard for me to handle… I had an all natural delivery and gave birth to a very handsome baby boy. I breastfed my baby for his first 4.5 months. After my milk dried up, my breasts looked so flat and saggy, not to mention nearly two sizes smaller… My body had changed so much, and I didn’t know how to take it. Now I am six months postpartum, and I have lost 20 pounds, but I still look pregnant! Oh and the stretch marks! They are EVERYWHERE. I just want to get back to my pre pregnancy body! I would feel better about myself than I do now!
And to all of you ladies who do share your stories and pictures, I very much appreciate it!
