First Time Mum (Anonymous)

Im a 24 year old first time Mum to a beautiful 3 month old baby boy but Im struggling to come to terms with my new Mummy body!!! I have had one pregnancy and all went well, with a healthy baby born 2 days before due date.

I lost about 20 pounds in the first 2 weeks and I felt great – since then I’ve stayed the same weight and I feel disgusting. I hate my wobbly belly and my chunky thighs, my stretch marks – which are everywhere. I felt beautiful when I was pregnant (despite the 3 stone weight gain) and now I feel like a monster. I want to feel comfortable so I can just enjoy my baby boy. I feel so selfish feeling like this. Its nice to be able to admit how I actually feel.

    First of all, you look great. Just the way you are. Your thighs have no chunk, lady! But you are also only three months postpartum, go easy on yourself. Try not to let your feeling overwhelm this amazing time. Your body is still healing and will keep changing. Enjoy your beautiful baby.

    You still have a great waistline and there is still a lot of time to get your diet on track and your body back! You certainly look much better than I do…I dropped 20 lbs in the first week and a half after I delivered and still have a ways to go (30 lbs more)…you look so much better than I do! Have faith, it will come off when you are more active and eat healthy. I can def relate to you tho!

    Wow, you look amazing. Learning to love our bodies is hard. I can see you wanting to lose some more weight, just remember, it took time to gain weight, it will take time to lose it. You are not a monster, just a new mommy, and wanting to look your best is not selfish. Enjoy your son, they grow so fast and try to make time to work-out and eat right!

    You look like me and I think I look great! haha. I have had to work very hard to look how I do, so take it from me, you look like a woman who takes great care of herself. You don’t look wobbly at all, although I can sympathize. When I stand up right everything looks like it’s in the right place. It’s when I sit down that the excess skin rolls and folds and feels uncomfortable. It will get better with time, I promise. You will be able to lose weight if you chose to but you look perfect just as your are.

    I know that you may not feel it, but you look absolutely great! Just take your time and don’t forget to take care of yourself. Your body (and belly specifically) is beautiful!
