Update: 3 Years, 3 Surgeries and 3 Kids Later (Val)

Original entry here.

My kids are now almost 3 and the twins are 19 months old! We have moved to a new town and I struggle with continuing to lose weight. I am now at 182 lbs, but part of it has been gaining muscle! I do 30-40 mins of Tae Bo 4-5 times a week. Eat smaller meals (and HEALTHIER meals) and even though I havent seen the change on the scale I HAVE seen the change in my body. I dont know if Ill ever lose the loose skin, But clothes that were tight on me 3 months ago now look great! (I am in a size 12-13! Size 2 at Fashion Bugg :D WOO HOO!) I had bought a body slimmer and now I can wear my dress clothes without it! I have learned that being a little hungry is ok and how to keep myself motivated. I keep coming back here for motivation and it helps sooo much!

I have also found a great doctor that has put me on BC (should be doubly protected right?) and it has leveled out hormones and has aided in the weight loss. That and I found I was MASSIVELY vit. D deficient. My three year old is in the last photo.

So thank you Shape of a Mother! You have helped me stay motivated!

    Wow! What a significant change! I can’t believe that you’ve only lost ten pounds…your body shape is dramatically different. Thanks for sharing your story and helping to inspire so many with your positive attitude and great new figure!

    Well done x you are looking great, you should be very proud of all your hard work!! Have you used anything on your stretchmarks as they are not noticeable in your new pictures :)

    No I havent used anything in a long time. They are just fading as I lose weight. They are not as noticeable in pictures but definitely still there :(
