1 Year After the Birth of my Firstborn (Anonymous)

Before I had conceived my daughter I struggled with my weight then I lost it got down to a size 10 and was soo happy then I got pregnant and was bed ridden and I gained 64lbs and only so far lost 20 , at time of my daughters birth I weighed 230, my stomach was stretched to the point of bleeding and I was so sad at what i looked like but now im more sad at how ive let my body get, and ive been working VERY hard to lose weight but now my husband and I are trying for our second so now ive finally come to love what my body is because it has created a beautiful baby and hopefully will continue too. here is one picture a month before pregnancy and here is morning of birth and now 14mths after.

    Oh sweetie you are BEAUTIFUL. And remember that nobody has a right to say otherwise but yourself. So keep reminding yourself that you are beautiful. Sometimes it’s hard and sometimes you don’t believe it, but if you say it to yourself enough you’ll begin to believe it. I’m glad you are on the road to acceptance, as am I. I’m coming to that point in my life where I know I’ll never look like I did in high school. But it’s important to love ourselves. Not only for our own sakes, but also for our childrens sakes. God bless you honey and I hope you have an easy road in your next pregnancy!

    I think you look beautiful. You and I have the same kind of story and end result for our bodies. I have just learned to love mine too…so glad you have gotten there too!

    Ya know you can definitely lose the weight and still feel really sexy about yourself. I had to get over the stretchmarks too cuz I got them in the most retarded places. Now after 9 years I am having baby number two and I really do like my body flaws and all!
    So I guess my point is, you can always lose the weight but you can’t ever make yourself beautiful if you are ugly to begin with-LOL And you are gorgeous my dear : )

    You made life, and your body is lovely, full, and womanly. There’ll be time for losing weight after you have your second, if you still want to lose weight. Good luck to you as you try for your next baby! :)

    You look just like me … Though, if i look at you, it feels okay for me.

    When I see myself in the mirror, it feels totally different.

    Thank you! This is my body too & I am just learning to accept it. I’ve had 2 kids & weighed around 230 when both were born. It is wonderful to see another woman with a body so much like mine. They are so often hidden I foget that I am not alone.

    i am looking at this site with my wife, so i hope that this does not seem wierd at all to you, but you really are gorgeous. I wish all of you beautiful mommies felt that way, because you probably don’t realize how awesome you are to us. Be proud of your incredible body!
