I think you and I look a lot alike! And I think you look just as good in these photos as you did in your last! You have fabulous curves!
hey just wondering how tall are you, please answer! i think yoru belly looks good, its flat!!! could be way worse you could have my gross c section overhang :( i always have a roll now, even when standing :( be happy!!!
You really do look great. Your stomach is flat and if you get a tan it will cover most of your stretch marks, that is what I do and you can hardly see mine now.
i am 5’5 – i fluctuate between 133 and 138 – I will be starting Trilastin stretchmark and firming cream ($200) as soon as it comes in the mail ,and update again in a few months! Thank you i am trying hard to learn to love my shape of a mother :)
OH and from the side its NOT flat- it hangs into a bulge.
LOL I still think you look great! Yes, you are right, there are stretch marks and some loose skin… but it’s perfectly normal :) You have a really pretty hourglass shape, your husband probably can’t keep his hands off of you.
Whether or not the previous pictures portrayed you in your perspective is beyond the point. You have a nice body and if you are looking for condemnation, you won’t find it here. We are here to uplift, not tear you apart. So absorb those compliments and know they are genuine. ;-)
your stretch marks and belly button remind me alot of my own stomach, only i have saggy skin as well.
your beautiful and your body is fabulous!
i am also 23, with a 5 year old and 21 month old. :)
You look great! Yes! please update and let us know if Trilastin really works…
I think I understand what your saying. I look like you I’m skinny/curvy and look nice in clothes but the skin and stretch marks bother me too. Good luck.
I would say creams don’t do much. I used very expensive creams before I gave birth and for a couple of years after. They didn’t do much. My stretch marks have faded, but I think they would have faded on their own, anyway. But I know that even if someone would have told me they don’t work, I probably would have bought them, anyway. Sometimes you gotta cling to something. I hope to post my first pictures here some day. I have been visiting the site for a few months now and I am trying to get the courage.
I love Nikki’s comment. :)
sorry i wasnt posting for negative comments – i showeda friend who is struggling my old page and she said “well that doesnt even look like you” so i thought i would try to repost a better image. Thank you for your kind words everyone. Im learning to cope, trying to get it where i can confidently weear a 2 piece ( I will for my bdayin july) Ive been prepping my skin with a med grade microderm abrasion cream, waiting on trilastin. Will update in 2 months. :)
I still hold true to what I said before…you look great! Some of us get some stretch marks and loose skin (like me!), others don’t…but we are all beautiful :)
Girl you look GOOD!!!
We are same weight same height and belly twins..lol.. you do look great. . Like the pretty undies!!
Gorgeous flat tummy and curvy waist, I’m jealous! I think you look fantastic. I have loads of stretchmarks and loose skin, and no products seem to work for me.
TBH when I look at your photos, I don’t even give the stretch marks a second glance, you have a damn sexy figure and should be proud! Bet you have great legs too.
Thank you thank you all :)
My belly looks exactly like yours but i’m 4 inches shorter than you. It is nice to know that i can get my stomach flat again :) you look great and have killer curves!
You look wonderful, and everyone is right you do have killer curvess. Definately be proud :-)
Wow I can’t believe someone actually has a tummy that looks like mine! Actually yours is flatter and the stretchmarks are more faded than mine. I’ve been so depressed. I thought I was alone. My fiance told me I had tiger stripes =( I showed my friend and she said wow he was right. That looks really weird. I feel so much better. Like there’s hope for me to lose weight and my marks will start fading. Your tummy is beautiful I want mine to look that great someday. You have pretty undies too. I bet you look sexy for your husband. I’ve been too ashamed to buy sexy undies that fit me. I weigh 131 and I’m 5’4. Thank you for being courageous, beautiful, and keeping hope alive =)
Amanda — i have been using TRILASTIN to reduce the stretch marks, and its REALLY working – three weeks and i can see a visible difference and my skin is smoother. :) — i will post new pics when im done with my 2 month supply… i worked out very hard for quite awhile altho im slacking now… GL and i know you will one day appreciate what you have, it has taken me 4 years :)
You look pretty darn good I hope I can look like that when my son is 4
You look fantastic!!! Thank you for your comment on my post it meant a lot to me!
