I gave birth to my 9lb 3oz son nearly 15 months ago now.. I was roughly 70kg (154lbs) pre pregnancy. During my pregnancy I did no exercise and I ate take away most days, getting up to 94kg (206lbs). Everyone told me i looked “healthy”, which I know think was just a nice way of saying i’d stacked on the weight. After giving birth I dropped down to 80kg and in the next 9 months my weight loss stalled and I was stuck at 76kg. 7 months ago I decided to make a big change… I started watching what I ate, how much I ate and when I ate.. I also made time to fit in at least 30 mins of exercise a day. I am now 57kg (125lbs), smaller than I’ve ever been and so proud of my hard work. I wish I’d taken better care of my body before becoming pregnant, but I am beginning to be more comfortable in my skin and appreciate what my body has gone through. I developed stretch marks on my tummy, breasts, thighs and even butt but only in the last two weeks (I was 2 weeks overdue!) and my stomach has some loose skin but I love my son more than anything and I would do it all again for him.
