Hi, I wrote my thoughts and feeling back in May 2008 in my original posting “Twins- The Aftermath”. Almost 6 months later, I have tried to loose weight. I Finally compared the pictures and I can see a difference in which makes me PROUD! i have never been proud of my weightloss. THANK you for all you wonderful thoughts and comments. I have grown to ACCEPT my body. My goal is is to save enough money to get a tummy tuck once i have my last child ( i am planning to have one more, but not so sure). I have notice the weight loss but my skin is really sagging,and very flappy. Thank you for the support!

Wow! You can really see a difference! Way to go missy! Haha!
I totally appreciate your post here today. I honestly love the fact that you are accepting of your beautiful body that grew your twins (and you look beautiful!). I look more like you after my 4 babies than any of the “oh my life is over I got stretch marks, have a flat tummy that I don’t think is flat enough and am 103 lbs” boohoo-ers. Thank you for sharing, I feel so much more normal today!
I think you look fab! I had twin boys in July – they are nearly 4 months and both were 7 pounders and I think your words are inspirational…I am really struggling with how my body looks but in reading your post – and seeing that you are accepting and proud of your body and what its done (double miracle) gives me hope…time is doing its job for you – without a doubt – absolutely – thank you so much for posting – I too have got disheartened by the “boohoo-ers” – power to you! x
I’m also a mother of twins – Congrats on the progress! I asked my husband what he thought of my “new” body and he says it’s a sign of my love for my children that I went through that for them.
A local physical therapist who’s a member of Holistic Moms Network showed me some diaphramal breathing exercises that will strengthen the diaphram to help with any diastasis (the muscle gap in the abdomen) and I went from a 5 inch to a 4 inch gap.
I’m also looking into Julie Tupler’s book: “How to lose your mummy tummy”.
It’s also an exercise program that she’s had success with.
It’s worth a shot trying it before surgery – you’ll be in better condition for it, anyway, and if it works, you’ll have saved some trouble and money. Good luck!
I just looked at your original post. You can really see the difference!!Way to go – you look amazing!!
You do look fantastic!!! IT’s great to document like this. It’s so easy to see the difference! Congrats on the weight loss!
You really can see a difference from those pics! I hope you’ll update again 6 months from now and then a year from now!
Are you kidding? Huge difference! You’ve done good, mama.
you can really see the difference….i had twins 6 weeks ago and i am hoping to make those same changes in my body….you should feel great because you look great!!!
You can see the difference:) Just be patient with yourself. Nothing happens overnight. The weight comes off slowly, the skin will tighten up slowly, but it will if you take care of yourself!
Mother of twins here too! You look fabulous!! i am trying to get my tummy..well…everything down! Hahaha
but, teh babies are so worth it! I wouldn’t trade them for anything,
