This is me 2 weeks postpartum (Anonymous)

I gave birth to my gorgeous baby girl on April 24, 2008. I gained 60 lbs in this pregnancy strictly by eating whatever my heart desired (nutella, ice cream and candy overload) :). I have 44 lbs that I need to get rid of in order to reach my pre-pregnancy weight of 128 lbs. I have days when I hate my new body and the way I look, but it has only been 2 weeks and I cannot expect any magic. It will be a long and hard road to go back into shape and look as my old self. But even with all these stretchmarks and all the extra weight, I would never ever change one thing, because in the end I have my princess whom I adore.

    Wow! You look AWESOME!!! You are absolutely correct! You are only 2 weeks postpartum. Believe me, I see huge changes from the photo that I took 8 days postpartum and the photo I took 6 months postpartum and a big difference between that photo and my 12 month postpartum pic! Even now at 18 months PP my body is still changing!

    Your baby is adorable! Congrats!!!

    you look good and your daughter is beautiful. just thought i would share my experience with you. i too gained about 60lbs and spent the first 4 months wondering if i would ever be the same size. then breastfeeding and a busy life kicked in and by 6-7 months postpartum i was about 5lbs lighter than before pregnancy. i have been an athlete and an regular exerciser in the past, but did not have (or take) any time to workout. the weight comes off if you keep active, breastfeed and don’t stress. i now (15 months pp) do exercise and play sports because that firmness will not come back without effort. good luck…be patient and appriciate yourself for the miracle you have performed.

    Nutella is the best!! I used to eat it with peanut butter on toast when I was pregnant with my son, lol!
    By the way you look fantastic!! I thought that was a 2 MONTH photo! You are one hot mama! Your body is gonna shrink down to nothing. Congrats on your bundle of joy!
