I am the mom of three. My youngest just a little over a wk. After the birth if my other two I had no luck losing the belly or any of the weight. In one yr I lost 1 lb. I work in a doctors office and constantly had people asking me when I was due. That was extremely hurtful. I even stopped going to the gym because people told me I should "take it easy. You dont want to give birth so soon". With the older 2 I was unable to breastfeed. Something every1 said I should have done to lose the weight. But if one is producing nothing then how do I do that? I have also tried prescription rx which helped me lose 5 lbs but came right back with in a month. My pre baby weight was 140. After my first I was 186. Weighed over 200 with my second went back to 186 and with my 3rd went to 230. I was told about the belly band but I think it makes me look worse since whatever is not covered by the band is falling out the top of the band. I have a wonderful fiance and 3 beautiful children to be greatful for. But I am anything but. I am very depressed and disgusted is jot even come close to how I view myself. At one point I could say I looked good but anything but that now. Since 2009 I have worn nothing but maternity clothes.
