18 Months post, not even close to pre-pregnancy (Regina)

I became pregnant with my daughter a month before my 17th birthday. I had always struggled with my weight and when i was 15 completely starved myself for 3 months. i love 50 pounds. and kept it all off. I was a size 9-11 and weighed 158 pounds when i got pregnant. By the time i delivered i had gained 47 pounds, weighing 205. i lost 20 in delivery. i am 18 months post and i have lost 5 more pounds on top of that. i weigh 180 pounds. i am between a size 18-15. I have lots of very thick, short stretch marks and extra skin and cellulite. but i’m starting to accept it and get over the fact that i am not a super model at heart. And she’s worth every pound.

Updated here and here.

    Wow! Are you sure you’re 180? You must be very tall, then! You really truly do not look it at all! You carry it very well! And your body is very beautiful! Your stretchmarks have lightened so well! I hope mine lighten like that! You’re so lucky! You can hardly see them! And your daughter!!! What a beautiful little angel!!!! She looks like my little girl!

    All I have to say is you and your daughter are so beautiful! I love that last picture. Just seeing you two smile reminds me of why women do what we do with making babies and all that jazz!

    You and your little girl are really gorgeous. I am with you though my tummy looks exactly like yours after 18 months. I was a size 8 previous but not anymore cause i am always trying to hide. Obviously not everyone bounces back but I’m not worrying until I have had all the babies I want and then I will work out when then go to school and then Hey Presto!!! But in the meantime enjoying every minute
