Finally Ready to be PROUD of My Body (Anonymous)

My only son is 5 years old. I had him very young and needless to say, the past 5 years have been quite the journey. I weighed about 105 pounds before I got pregnant and about 180 the day he was born. WOW! My weight has fluctuated the past few years and is about 155 right now. I used to be so ashamed of my stretch marks since they are EVERYWHERE. My son’s father was completely freaked out by them. We were only together a little while after he was born. I remarried when my son was 4 and couldn’t be happier. My husband didn’t even know me when I was pregnant and loves me, my son and my crazy looking body! I know I’ll never be able to wear a bikini but I’ve found some pretty hot one pieces! I don’t think my boobs look half bad considering their size. I’m so proud of my son (who started t-ball this year.) My life is defined by ME, not by the comparison of my body to other peoples. I’m not totally in love with my fat roll but I’ll work out every now and then. I’ve learned life is way too short to worry about what anyone thinks of MY body. It’s mine and I’m starting to like it!

    You look awesome! Your stretchmarks are so light now that I don’t see them in the photos. Your belly is so flat and your breasts are perfect. You look awesome! I’m so glad to hear that you remarried… and to a man who loves your body, too!
    I can tell by the way you mentioned that your son started t-ball this year that you are such a proud mama! :D

    You have a great body and you are very sexy.

    You said you don’t think your boobs look “half bad” and I say that they are perfect! We should all be so lucky.

    One thing that is a little different is I always though that our nipples get dark when we are pregnant but yours are very flesh colored. I miss my flesh colored nipples…

    Thank you so much for posting that! I’m a mommy of 3, with #4 on the way & I’m really trying to learn to love and accept this new body of mine. I have found that in general people (especially woman) do not appreciate the “womanly” shape. We are taught from a very young age to only accept the flat pre- pubescent “model” shape…and it’s not “womanly” at all!

    I’m getting closer to 30 these days & I’ve found that the closer I get to that number, the more I appreciate this body of mine. I’m determined to really love the skin I’m in (because Lord knows I can’t have anyone else’s-LOL).
