Belly Close up:
Here you can see how saggy the belly is. First the belly is at rest, then I pull up the lose skin:
So there you have it. Thanks BerryBlonde for starting this thread. I hadn't been very pleased with my post-baby, mid-weight-loss body, but while I was taking the pictures I started looking at my body differently. Like really
looking at it. And you know what? As of this moment, I'm totally fine with my body. I actually like
it's shape, and the belly skin doesn't really bother me anymore. I also noticed that the stretch marks are pretty faded too. After I'm done having my babies and hit long term maintenance I might think about tucking up that lose skin, but for now It's fine by me
Yep, that is loose skin,
