Losing optimism about post baby body
Kendall - Hang in there! My wife feels the same way, but here are a few words for you... It's the vary rare woman that can have a kid and then snap back to looking 20 again. If that's you, then great. If not, don' t torture yourself. Take a FULL sample of the moms around you. As far as hot, effort is always more important than results. Work at it when you have the energy, be generous after dark and try to keep a portion of your old identity. Giving up and staying defeated is always a turn off. Works for us.....
I had my son 6 months ago, and almost all of the weight is gone. It was very hard getting it of. Stay motivated!
I have a 5(almost 6) year old. Your body really can snap back, it just takes some work. I have a ton of stretch marks up to my belly button, thighs, butt, and I have always hated them. Pre pregnancy my stomach was my favorite feature and in my eyes, the skin and flab and stretch marks destroyed it. I started exercising and changed what I was eating on November 14. I'm in the best shape of my life I would say. And although I do have some extra tummy skin/fat, I think with time it will still get tighter, and whatever I'm left will I accept it. And since I'm toning and gaining muscle, stretch marks have faded and cellulite has almost disappeared(nice unexpected surprise). So don't give up!!! You can do anything you set your mind to!
Don't give up! Our bodies change so drastically after having children and it might take just a little more time than you thought to bounce back. Just hang in there and keep at it and before you know it you'll be back where you wanna be. I had twins and look freakin amazing cause I kept trying. Don't lose hop girl!!
Motivation can be lost so easily. I have two kids and they are a year and 13 days apart. I want to get fit to be able to give them more time with me
I have 2 kids, in my early 30's and working towards looking and feeling better than I ever have before. It is hard work, especially me having 2 c sections, but I'll get there. And so will you!
And being sexy is more than just physical appearance. Confidence, the way someone carries themselves and their attitude all play a role in sexy. Well in my opinion anyway
Keep your head up girl. Be proud of yourself everyday for what you accomplish, don't wait to feel proud months down the road
I had my daughter and immediately lost all the weight but still have what I call the baby pooch. It's all us mom's. My sister weighs 98 lbs (no she's not unhealthy just extremely petite) and even she has the baby pooch. Time and patience seems to be working. If u loose it too fast ur skin doesn't gain the elasticity back anyway so time and patience. Good luck.
