When I was pregnant I was working as a manager at chick-fil-a and working almost 50 hours a week untill i went into the hospital the last couple months I was pregnant. In combination of eating chick fil a and being on bedrest and in the hospital, I gained almost 65 pounds while I was pregnant. I weighed 190 the day I gave birth and I still weight like 160. I probably weigh more, but I am too afraid to look at the scale. Before I got pregnant I was around 120. It has been making me really depressed that I have not been able to lose weight. I feel horrible. I pretty much hate my life anyways, and my weight gain issue is just making things worse. I have started walking two times a day and doing sit ups, core work (it still hurts from the c-section though) but I am not feeling very well about myself. My friend from highschool had her baby two months before I did, and you would never know. She's honestly skinnier than she was in highschool with no stretch marks or anything. I have so many stretch marks that I look like a zebra and will never wear shorts or a bikini again.
I really need some help so that I don't revert back to anorexia/ overexersizing like I did when I was in high school. I just need help so I can look in the mirror without wanting to scream or cry.
