I gave birth to my son early last year. I have been a competitive runner for years, and continued to run until my third trimester. I have always valued keeping myself in shape, and I was terrified that I would hate my post-baby body. I gained about thirty pounds during my pregnancy, and it took about 4 months to shed it. I am now back to running my pre-pregnancy distances, and am in better shape than ever. However, I have one stubborn patch of fat and loose skin right under my bellybutton. You know what? I love it! It is a reminder of what my body created, and I welcome the change! The pictures are a before and after. Sorry for the editing… I am a little shy.

Mama, you look GREAT! What patch of fat??? Congratulations!
Are you breastfeeding? If so, has returning to your training regimen diminished your milk supply? I want to start running again once the snow and ice clear, but I also don’t want to jeopardize my milk, especially as my son is getting bigger and needs more, not less of it! Thanks for sharing!
What patch of fat?
