Me one year later! (Anonymous)

HI! I am a 21 year old mother of one beautiful baby boy! I love your site so much I come to it everyday to find words of encouragement and to see pictures of REAL women. I got pregnat when I was 19 and It has been one year later since I have had my son. The scariest thing to me was gaining the weight and getting the dreaded stretch marks. I have lost all the baby weight and then some, and it is a great accomplisment for me b/c I have always struggled w/ my weight ( I gained 60 lbs w/ my pregnacy also). These pictures were taken in May 07 on our first family vacation and I am very proud of my marks now and they don’t even bother me now, I thought they would, but they don’t, I finnally feel like a real person b/c my whole life I have struggled w/ REALLY bad self esteem and trying to keep up w/ friends and family who were a size 0. Know I know who I truley am a MOTHER and a WIFE, and a WOMAN and I am so proud of that!!!

    You look amazing. If i saw you on the beach with your baby, i’d be like “wow, did she have that baby??” I love your attitude, and your little boy is adorable!

    You are so beautiful and your son is so gorgeous!!! You are so brave, too–I’m so afraid to even wear a 1 piece bathing suit… My tummy isn’t flabby but my thighs and butt are my concern… all giggly, stretchmarky and stuff… You really have taught me a lesson… thanks! Maybe I’ll go swimsuit shopping tomorrow **gulp** !

    yay! I love seeing moms in bikinis! Be proud of your stretchmarks, when you wear them with pride you set a positive example for the rest of the world.
