Previous post here.
Today I am writing to show the progress i have made physically. But emotionally SO MUCH MORE, i CONFIDENTLY wear a two piece everywhere now, i EMBRACE every bit of the accomplishment my body went through. I have baby fever VERY badly and am wanting to try for baby number two! after 5 years (my son just started Kinder this year!!) and alot of self hate, i am happy and whole and ready to do it all over again.
ONLY this time, I got some irregular results back on my pap while making sure i was okay to try again. Now i am waiting on test results to come back to determine cervical cancer.
I am angry that I spent so much time hating my body and not appreciating it, and using it for its wonders, that now (perhaps) it may be too late. If I cannot have another child I know that I have been blessed with one AMAZING little boy and a VERY supportive husband. God has a plan. I just hope that plan allows me another baby.
* the picture attatched is over a 2 year process of eating healthier and working out moderatly… I could only imagine the results i could have if i just stopped eating so many carbs and sugars, but i am happy with who i am now and LOVE my body

Looked back on your previous post…and I always remember who you are because you have such a sexy body!(I’ve never missed a post since 2008 lol) You look amaizing and have a body I would kill for! Keep it up hot momma!
You look wonderful!
Our bodies are the same except your PP body looks great. I looked at your previous post too. I hope I look this good in 5 years.
you look AMAZING, and i love your new found confidence, god will answer your prayers !!!
Awh thank you izzy! – I can now say i believe it when someoen calls me a hot mama! – its crazy to think its ONLY in OUR heads. :/
I love love love your posts. I have looked at them so many times. I love that you have stretch marks like me…and you are still a hot mama! I have not gotten into the shape I want to be (not even close). I need to be more dedicated to exercising and eating right. I have such a sweet tooth…any tips? I know you said you do Jillian Michael and jog…any other tips?
ummm Shannon i would say – continue eating your sweets :) in SMALL portions. I eat 10 times a day… literally half a sandwhich or 1 apple or a granola bar then a big dinner. I try to walk/jog/run at least 10 miles a week. and jillian michaels i LOVE her. and drink LOTS of water! Ive cut out all sodas and tea (unless im at a restauraunt and its my ‘treat’ to have a tea)
Amber, I read your posts regularly because they give me hope! I am currently 3 weeks to the day pp with baby #2 and my belly after number 1 looked almost identical to yours (minus the sexy curves) ;) of course, it’s still looking that way and I am determined to shrink it down and tone as much as possible once my doc gives me the go ahead at 6 weeks. Right now I try to get out on walks with my 22 month old when baby is sleeping but usually only short 30 minute walks 2 or 3 times a Week. I’m cutting back on sweets, carbs and flour (I’m a huge sweets fanatic and wish I could say I’m getting rid of them completely but that would be a lie!!). But you had mentioned diet change helped you in ur success… Can you give me tips on ur diet?? I’m trying to eat more proteins. It’s hard. It’s now almost 2pm and I haven’t eaten lunch because of a very needy baby and all I want is to drive thru somewhere!! ;) you look AMAZING so ur advice is much appreciated!! And I completely agree with Izzys comments :) also, I hope all works out for you on your desires for another baby… Hoping tests come back negative and all is healthy…
Krista – i wouldnt call it a diet at all. But i try to eat fruit in the morning along with a 4mile walk/jog. Then i come home and do a jillian michaels 20 minute workout. i eat about 6-8 times a day, about the size of my fist each meal/snack. drink LOTS of water. i cut out all sodas and reward myself with a big ol glass of sweet tea (texan!) on the weekends. i still eat ALL the sweets i want in VERY small portions. Try drinking a glass of lemon water before EACH meal/snack.. it helps you feel fuller faster and the lemon is great for your metabolism. congrats on baby and you will get there soon! your only 3 w pp give it at least 9 months :) (it took me two to get into gear and do something) GOOD LUCK :)
Which Jillian workouts do you like?
ALL OF EM ;)
How did your results come back?
Havent done it yet. dont have the money. its a $200 cost. Thank you for asking.
Thank you for posting this. I feel the same way as you I am my worst enemy and you gave me hope after seeing your pictures that I will get back to my sexy skinny body again.
