Light at the End of the Tunnel (Anonymous)

Age: 19
Number of Pregnancies: 1
11 months PP

I got pregnant when I was 18 years old, wasn’t planned but welcoming my son into the world was the greatest thing that has ever happened in my life. Pre-pregnancy I weighed 150, and I am 5’10. I ate alot of junk food when I was pregnant and didn’t really consider it being difficult to lose the weight afterwards. As my ninth month of being pregnant approached I realized what a huge blob I was, I weighed 215. My son was born in December 2011 and is the sweetest little boy I’ve ever laid my eyes on. My body definitely didn’t bounce back, I currently weight 186. I’m too tired and exhausted being a single mom that I don’t have the energy to work out. Being pregnant also gave me the biggest sweet tooth and has yet to go away. All in all, 11 months later, I am embracing my curves and mommy body, and still have high hopes that I’ll be able to loose my tummy pooch!

    My son was also born in December of 2011, and your body is so insanely similar to my own. I got stretch marks on my “love handles” and about 2 on my tummy. I’m fine with my weight, per say, but the pooch just gets me. I think you look great and hope that it’s just my mind playing tricks on me and i look half as good as you do! :)

    I am tall like you and almost the same weight, currently ten months after birth of my boy. For me it was all about embracing the curves and a new kind of beauty. Congrats to you on you’re confidence and sweet baby!
