Well hello everyone!!! Would like to start by saying I am so glad I found this website :)
So let me tell you a little bit about myself; I am 29 years old with 3 boys (ages 12, 8 & 1) been married for almost a decade. I am 5’ 3” currently 122lbs, not overweight however the damages from pregnancy are definitely visible (no matter how much weight I lose the saggy belly wont go away)…
