22 years old on my second pregnancy I’m at 23 weeks (Lissete)

Hi im Lissete. I am on my second pregnancy at 23 weeks now , my first child i gained 75 lbs , i have always dealt with poor body image since i grew to a d cup at age 10. i was 17 years old when i had my daughter my pre-pregnancy weight was 127 (im 5’4) and i ended at 202 . i only lost 10 lbs during my postpartum , i was with my daughters father for 3 years afterward and our relationship fell apart due to my weight gain and my body appearance. a year later i met someone for the first time who loved me not my body.

i found out i was pregnant on may 28 and at first was very upset about the thought of gaining more weight, but i have lucked out and in fact lost 15 lbs since i found out. all i care about now is being healthy , eating right and staying fit, weather or not i lose or gain weight doesn’t matter to me anymore, i love my stretch marks they are every where and i don’t care! they are my symbols of love that i have as a mother and woman.

for all you ladies out there who are being put down , plus sized or not YOU ARE beautiful , once you believe this you can truly be free.

    Wow this is amazing I too was 17 when I first got pregnant. I was 125lbs and 5’4″ !! And I gained alot with my first as well. I think I went up to 192 and after 4 years my weight has never been the same as I was before. I’ve really had such a hard time even though my husband has stayed and supported me since day one. Yet now out of nowhere we’re pegnant again with our second and I’ve learned alot since the first and I’m going to do alot more this time. What’s so weird is I’m 22 as well. I’m so happy for you thank you for sharing your story :)
