    Who is pleased with....

    their body? Or should I say who has accepted it? I have struggled to find the energy to loose the extra 20lbs that I have kept on but have failed miserably. I had to use weight watchers to loose that 20 before I got pg anyway so I KNOW my body likes being 155lbs. It's not just the weight though, its the ROLLLLLLLLLLLLLLS that go with it.
    Its ok though I am vain enough to require some kind of plastic when I am done with this baby factory. The funny thing is I will be probably be so old it won't make a difference and I will just stick with it. My OB was concerned about the fact that my c-section cut wasn't perfect. LOL if I got in a bikini now that would be a concern.
    Who stuck with their granny panties ? I don't seem to be able to get out of those either. I think there has to be comfort in this mummy land somewhere right?

    I keep telling my DH that he'll never get bored because it's like being with a new woman every few months my body keeps changing so much. So far, it has not been a change for the better, but maybe that day will come. Having 3 babies and 3 c-sections in four years, plus b/f has taken it's toll on my body. We could never afford surgery, so I'll just have to live with the body I have.

    I have to say, this is my first and I am constantly thinking about my weight. I try to walk a one mile ea day. I am 5lbs shy of being where I was before getting pg. I am pleased as this time it was easy for me to lose the weight. I would like to tone up some muscles though, but I have no time for any of that.

    So I guess I am saying yes I am please.

    I'm back to my pre-pg size, but my body is far from being the way it was.
    I'm jiggly everywhere and I seem to have no tone anywhere.
    I lost my butt. Don't know where it went, but it's wide and flat now.
    I thought by now my 'muffin top' would be gone, but it's still there to remind me of my new 'mommy body'.

    I want to have another baby in the next year, so as long as I can stay at the weight I am now, I'll be okay w/ it. I'm lazy and keep telling myself that there's no point toning up now when it's all going to go to hell once I get pg again.
    I gained 40lbs in my pg and lost 44lbs, but most of it was muscle I lost

    Hi

    I lost a lot of weight before my GIFT procedure. After my PG I lost a bit of weight but its been up and down. I am now with WW and its going well but a long way to go. I want to have another baby and then I twisted DH arms to send me for a breast reduction and maybe a tummy tuck.

    My body has been the same, I have been fighting between 130 & 135, up and down for the last 12 years. The only thing that stayed in my pregnancy was the belly and I am to lazy to do sit up. But before my surgery I was going dancing every other weekend. There is no better exercise then Salsa dancing. I think my DH gained all the weight in this relationship. I tell him that is what happens when he eats everything in sight especially chocolate, he has the will power of a two year old.

    Hey sometimes the butt needs a hug too!!

    I positively hate my body! I hated is before pregnancy, even more after. . . it causes me a lot of depression because I'm so unhappy about the way I look. I keep trying to lose the weight. . . maybe someday I'll get it right!

    I'm OK with my body. I'm about 4-5lb over my pre-pregnancy weight - but I was skinny to start with.
    Now, my hair and face - that's a different story - I'd love a makeover for both of these !!
