I am a divorced Mom of five children. I had my first when I was 17 and then in the next 10 years I had 4 more! They were all big, beautiful babies, and I got HUGE each preganancy. (I thought it was fun to be so big!)
Before my 1st baby I was 5'4" and weighed 104lbs. (I was 16 when I got pregnant) I gained 56lbs in the next nine months! Needless to say, it was difficult getting the weight off, but I dieted and did aerobics five nights a week. Got back to 103lbs and could wear a bikini again. (tiny extra skin, but not bad)
My next two came within 13 months of each other and then the next two within 2 1/2 years of each other.
I ended up weighing well over 160. (not pregnant) I nursed all of them and the last two I nursed over a year each!
When I turned 30 I was tired of having to wear elastic waisted pants and oversized shirts! I got a personal trainer for 3 months and went on Jenny Craig. I lost all the weight, and even did a Jenny Craig commercial!
However, my tummy and breasts are extremely gross! Bikini? Ha! Haven't worn one since I was a teen!
I've been wanting a Mommy Makeover for soo long, but have been very scared! However, I am tired of being so grossed out about myself. I want to not be afraid to date a man past three dates because of my secret gross-ness!
I want to be able to wear jeans and not have to hide my skin hanging over the top of them! I need to fill in my empty breasts, so they don't look like deflated balloons without a bra on!
Anway, thanks for reading! Oh, I am now 41 and weigh 120.. I run, do a boot camp class, and dance ballet and jazz.
Will post some pictures when I get a chance. :)
