Previous post here.
This is my new entry :) I made a previous entry approximately a year ago describing my issues with body image and trying to love my body. Am I there yet? I wish I could say that I am but it is a long process. I have had my struggles and to be honest some days are better than others. Some days I feel like a sexy mamma ! Other days I wear baggy clothes and I want to hide my body. You just never know. What I feel has honestly helped is working out. I am extremely passionate about it. I am six years post p and I still have the stomach of loose skin and breasts that sag more than I like. Still, when I challenge my body in a work out I feel a million times better. I feel strong despite my negative emotions about my body. When I work out I feel like it doesnt matter that my skin sags in certain spots or that I have stretch marks. All I think about is being brace and strong. There are so many emotional stories on here. What I find motivating about this site is that even if you read a sad story about a woman who fears her new body, women comment to make her feel how she truly should, a strong woman, a tiger who should be worshiped for her contribution to this world even if you feel like the only one you ever made was your child. To have a child and raise a child whether you are old or young is an amazing thing. None of us do it perfectly and we all have regrets. Lets not make our bodies one of those regrets. When you only have one life to live why punish yourself for something like this? Embrace who you are and how you feel. Acknowledge your feelings and morn the old body but embrace what is new after that. Be healthy, eat healthy and try to think healthy as a whole. Focus on that amazing child of yours :)
I give all of the women on this site a lot of credit :) Every single one of you from all walks of life….one big thing in common. The life we brought into this world !

SEXY SEXY !!! AS HELL!!! boy us women know how to down play ourselves. Your a hot momma. I love to show my husband these pics and boy let me tell you he gives you thumbs up!!!
Hi ladies !
To answer your question Mia, I had a natural birth. He was 10.2 !! I gained 100 pounds…never would have imagined a baby that big :)
Like I said, I still have terrible body image but I am so grateful for the positive things in my life. Working on self confidence and body image will be a life long process but I am up for the challenge :)
How is any of that saggy? I don’t see it! (Really!) Some of my friends have the same build as you do and they havnt had babies yet :P
whoa i don’t get how you can dislike your body. i have never been this slim and fit looking, even before baby. i’m not bad now, but nowhere near as hot as this (but working on it.) please don’t be down about your body, you are sexy!
Thanks Ladies :) All of your positive comments go to show you that even someone you feel shouldn’t have body image issues, they still may deep down inside. What I see in the mirror and photos is probably very different from reality. God thats a struggle. Im hoping eventually comfort with my body will come. In time I think I will grow to stop caring and embrace what I have. Just takes time…
Why are you down on yourself, you have no reason to think your body is anything short of sexy. I would kill for curves like yours, in all the right places! I am as straight as they come, but have no issues telling you that you have an awesome ass..seriously your body is beautiful.I also have 1 child but am 5 years pp, my body looks no where near what yours does..but I am working on it..little by little..
