I am 28 years old and just had my first baby girl 6 months ago. I started out weighing 160 lbs (after losing 25 lbs about a year earlier through diet and exersise), gained 40 lbs during pregnancy, and now I am at 170. I had a planned c-section because the hospital would not deliver her breech. It was a easy pregnancy and an easy “delivery”…and she (baby Claire) is turning out to be such a wonderful little girl. Sure, I would like to lose some baby weight (and then some), but things could be worse. My baby is happy and healthy and I am feeling pretty good in my own skin, even if sometimes I look in the mirror and feel a bit dissapointed that another day has gone by and I *still* don’t resemble Kate Moss! What’s up with that? ;) I need to remember that my daughter is going to be looking at me as a role model and I am going to need to keep a good self-image so that she will hopefully be happy with how she looks as well.
