Widowed, But Never Alone (Anonymous)

April 25, 2011

Age: 22
Number of births: 2
Ages: 4 years and 2 years

I had my first son when I was seventeen. It took almost two years before I decided to change anything about myself as I weighed almost fifty pounds more then I had before pregnancy. Shortly after getting my body back I lost my husband to the war and was pregnant with my second child. I did everything I could to not loose the hard work I had done and stayed healthy. It is a long struggle and I am still trying to get my body back but I know that things can never be the same. My children keep me strong and fighting everyday.

    I am extremely sorry for your loss. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to lose my man to the war. I am also a young mother and I think you look absolutely beautiful. Your breasts are perky and your tummy is flat. I love you tattoo, too. Stay strong, hun.

    These photos are insanely beautiful! I’m so sorry for your loss. You’ve been blessed with these two little sweeties. Your husband lives through them. Thanks for posting. :)

    You have a lovely body, I would never guess you had carried a baby (let alone gained 50 pounds in less than a year!). You are beautiful.

    Have you heard about the American Widow Project? (http://www.americanwidowproject.org/) There was a story about it in People magazine a few months ago, and I took note because we lost a friend in Afghanistan last September who had a wife and toddler (although I never got around to sending her the link…). I thought maybe you would appreciate getting in touch with people who completely understand your situation.

    I am very proud of your husband for making the greatest sacrifice of all. Your children will grow up knowing their father was a HERO. I am reading posts and looking at pictures. My wife is not happy with her after pregnancy body. I do not know how to help her with this. I thought I would educate myself with how other women feel. She would like to get a tummy tuck and I do not know if this is the answer. I think she is as sexy as the day we met. Does anyone of have any ideas? She is back to her pre-pregnancy weight how ever her breasts sag and she has the loose skin on her belly.
