I turned 30 last week, so I only just made it. I hardly feel that the discription applies though. After having my first I got my figure and face back in about a year. The twins though....
i think I've probably aged about ten years in the last two. My skin is soooo streched I don't think it will ever go back and my face has suddenly got wrinkles all over.

I felt really depressed about not having flat and defined abs any more, until I saw recent pictures of Julia Roberts in a bikini. She has the same loose skin twin tummy even though the rest of her is lean and trim. I guess it is normal. If she can embrace her new look, then I can do it too.

Hi im 20 years old and i love being a young mummy. I have a son who is 9 months old. Before i had my son i had an amazing body, but now?! My bum is big, my thighs are big, my arms are big, my stomach is still flabby and rolly and my boobs are small!!! So i feel your pain! My face has wrinkles everywhere and i wake up everyday feeling like i am 40 years old!!! I always look at celebs and think god why cant i look like they do after children but then i remember that they have nutrisionists, cooks, personal trainers, nannys, cleaners and someone for anything that you can think of! Im sure your a wonderful Mum! And just rememeber... we might be a bit chubbier than before but at least we look after our own kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope i could make you feel a bit better about yourself?!!!!
