I was always skinny. 111 pounds before the birth of my first son, and proceeded to gain 55 pounds. I ended up with stretch marks from literally my breasts to a few inches past my knees. After I lost the weight, my breasts were just loose skin, nothing else. My stomach looked pretty wrinkly, but I was okay because I was a size 0 and could wear tight shirts. I just had to tuck an inch of skin into my pants! I just had my second beautiful son 8 weeks ago, and gained the same amount of weight, and it’s coming off pretty easily. I went from 155 and am now 119. But my stomach is just loose skin, I knew this could happen but it consumes me every day. I have so may pairs of jeans I know I will never be able to fit into because of the loose skin draping over my pants. I have an absolutely wonderful husband who said, after I showed it to him sitting down, “what kind of husband would i be if I cared about that? You had a baby!” But he said if it bothers me that much, I can get a tummy tuck next year.

Ha ha, I begged my husband to let me get a tummy tuck after our second…and last baby which is due in less than 3 months and he finally agreed, I say if your not happy with it do something! and the gym cant tighten skin so Im all for some snip snip too! You already look really good, so I am sure that anything more you do will produce amazing results!
Your stomach looks just like mine except for I am a size 6 or 7! I hate tucking it in because I feel like it’s so much to tuck that people are going to see the flap through my jeans. Goofy I know. We are lucky to have such *blind* husbands and hopefully we’ll feel better after tummy tucks! :) I want 2 more kids though so you’ll be enjoying yours sooner that I will enjoy mine.
that’s why i love my spanx or the even cheaper assets. no tummy tuck needed and bye bye apron belly!
What apron?! I’m going to have to get my camera out and show you what an apron is. lol You look great!
