I have 3 beautiful children whom I love more than anything. I nursed each of them for a year each. However, I have been left with a body I am so embarrassed of. My husband does not get to see my “banana” breasts, my skin on my stomach sags despite being only 15% body fat. I have become so body obsessed, that it invades my nearly every waking thought. I see magazine pictures of postpartum celebrities and I yearn to look like that again. I have beat my self up every day, since I have not been able to achieve that goal. this is the first site I have felt empowered and part of a sisterhood I should be proud of, not embarrassed by. I don’t have a picture, but I want to thank all of you fabulous women for making me realize I am perfect just like I am! Just exactly like each of you are perfect just the way you are too!

I’m glad you’ve come to realize you are beautiful the way you are. Also, if it is possible to gain muscle to reach 18% body fat then maybe your breast would fill out a little too, making you all that more comfortable with yourself? Either way, let your hubby see those boobies! His admiration for them will go a long way in helping your self esteem.
You’re right. You are beautiful the way you are! People in magazines have airbrushes, personal trainers, and plastic surgeons. Just remember that. You can never compare yourself to celebrities or models. They aren’t real.
I am glad you’ve learned to accept your body. I understand how you feel. It’s nice to know that there are people out there that can help us. I haven’t been able to accept my body, but this site is helping me slowly but surely.
