This is my body now…16 months after my beautiful child was born. I weight 211 at the time of her delivery and was 170 by 1 months post partum. At 6 months post partum I was still at 170lbs. At that time I decided enough was enough. It took me several months but now Im at 123lbs, which is almost 40lbs lighter then my pre pregnacy weight. I still struggle now, eventhough I know Im slim. I breastfed my daughter for 13 months and between pregnacy and weightloss I am left with small hanging breast and a loose abdomen. As each month goes by I try to learn to love everything about myself. Its a difficult task but one Im committed 2. I want my daughter to love herself so I think the best way to do that is to teach by example. I hope she never struggles with her body image because she’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! My original submission is here.
