7 Weeks Postpartum (Anonymous)

Number of children: 2

This is me today. I had my second baby 7 weeks ago. I have always had issues with my body. All throughout college I suffered from bulimia. The only time I ever felt sexy was during pregnancy. I ate whatever I wanted without guilt. It really helped me overcome my issues with food. During pregnancy I gained approx 35 lbs both times. I loved how my tummy was so tight and round. Now it’s soggy and stretched. However, I would do it all over again. I love being a mother. It is worth every pound and stretch mark I gained. I have come a long way in trying to accept this body. My goal is to loose the last 20 lbs and really tone up. I think If i build more muscle my stomach wont look as stretched. But even if it doesn’t I’m still grateful that being a mom helped me to see how vain I had been in the past. I love This body for giving me my children!

    I really admire that you can value your body for something so worthwhile. I’ve also had my struggles with eating disorders and can say being pregnant was the most valuable lesson I’ve been taught yet. How can you hate something that brought the greatest love into your life?
