5+ Years Postpartum

The Shape of Me (Anonymous)

Hi. I am a young parent of 2 sets of twins. I am 10 months postpartum with my recent set and my other two boys are 9. I need to loose around 2 stone but can't find the motivation. Wonder will my belly get worse with weight loss or better.

This photo represents the power of positive social media. Anyone who knows me, knows how insecure I am about my tummy. No bikinis, long tops, loose yoga vests...the list goes on. Two huge babies left me with serious stretch marks and no muscle tone. I've been incredibly self-conscious for years since my beautiful children were [...]
