I gave birth to my beautiful son in February 2009 & have slowly lost all but 15 lbs of my baby weight. I have been staying accountable with my diet & exercise by logging everything online at a free weight loss support group. While I am not 110% body confident, I no longer stress about it b/c I have such a beautiful gift because of it. I used to be very pre-occupied with how my body looked, now I am simply happy to eat & exercise to be healthy, not to be the skinniest of all of my friends.

I’m so happy for you and your sense of personal success. However, I want you to know that your body is beautiful and it was beautiful before you dieted at all. It’s so wonderful how giving birth can free us from our pre-conceptions of physical beauty. I hope that this is the last diet you are ever on — not because you never gain weight again, but because you love your body forever.
Holy cow, girl, you JUST gave birth! You look fantastic!!!! Good for you for keeping up on your diet. Congrats!!!
you look great! good on you for working to make your body as healthy as it can be.
