Calling Moms for Accountability!

I just had my second baby in 2 years. I was pretty active on here before my first baby, and things were going well.

Here I am, starting again, 30 lbs heavier and struggling to lose the baby weight. I'm feeling very insecure about my mom bod, and I'm looking for some other moms to be accountability friends here, people who may be struggling with similar issues.

Please send me a friend request if interested!

    I'm a mom of 3 kiddos (8yo, 8yo, and 5yo). Lost weight before the twins and got to goal weight. Gained a tiny bit with twins, lost it all almost immediately. Gained a ton with the littlest one and afterwards, and just never really lost it again, so trying to get back to that goal weight again.

    Mom of 3. My fitness level is pretty good as far as what I would like for my cardio and strength ability, but just looking to get my nutrition under control to finally ditch that 5-10 lb layer of fat.

    Hi! I'm happy to accept any friend requests from other moms. :) I'm 34 and have five kids, ages 10 to 1, and since February I'm about halfway to my weight loss goal of about 65-70 lbs (final number TBD). I post here more than on my feed but am happy to offer encouragement!

    Hi, I am a mom of 2 as well. A 5 year old and an almost 3 month old. I still have 20 lbs to get to my pre-pregnancy weight, and another 10 lbs to get to my goal weight so 30 lbs total. I would like to get to there by her 1st birthday. Definitely know how you feel with the mom bod. Most of my clothes are too tight but I don't want to wear my maternity clothes anymore and I don't want to buy a bunch of bigger clothes just for them to only fit for a couple months.

    One trick I use for the changeover between maternity and regular clothing is to wear styles that can accommodate different sizes. I'm partway to goal right now, and have gotten rid of most of my bigger things, but I still have a lot that fits and I can deal with it being a little looser than I'd like until I'm at goal weight. Empire waists are the postpartum mom's best friend (I love faux wrap style dresses in particular because I can use them for nursing too and they can be dressed up or down.)

    Aside from a few specifically-maternity shirts and a pair of full panel maternity jeans (because they're just SO COMFY), I actually don't wear many specifically-intended-for-maternity clothes anymore. If you think you might have another baby sometime, it might make sense at goal weight to pick clothes that will work for you for both, plus nursing too if that's something you do.

    I do still have some clothes from before I lost weight prior to my second baby, so I have some things that I can wear, but I will have a lot more options once I lose some weight. I am done having babies after this one, so I am DONE with maternity clothes. I am nursing, but found I'm not much of a fan of nursing tops. I prefer nursing bras with my normal tops. I've had a few instances where I forgot to cover back up with the shirt after feeding so I was walking around with my bra hanging out without realizing it. :D
