this was taken 4yrs ago the day i met andrew and we became 'an item'... (im on the right)
Ive never seen this pic until yesterday and its depressed me, i had such a poor body image then but compared to now i looked fantastic!! I adore my children and my body was a small sacrafice compared to what i get from them in return, but god in 4 yrs ive changed so much im wondering why andrews here, i was 16 there im now nearly 21 and need a big glass of vodka and a cry!

Don't say that.We all feel like that after we had a baby.I might be back in jeans,but they're two sizes bigger than before I had kids.I'm also 2 stone heavier.I'm my pre Merlin weight cos I was carrying extra to start with.
The 2nd picture of you's probably an awkward angle,it's from above.Blame the camera,the photographer,the angle.....but don't forget you've a smile on your face.
I always think the state of my body's a small price to pay for what I have.And I enjoy chocolate too much to do a whole lot about it

Think the majority of mums feel like that don't they?
I was size 12 for years-pushing a 14 tho! But that was a struggle,constantly dieting and generally a borin cow to be around.
Now I'm a size 16,and to be honest it only bothers me if I go out for a drink-which is practically never,but I'm so happy with my life I figure sod it I adore food,love cooking and sadly have very little control over portion size!!!!!!
Kids need a cuddly mum in my opinion,don't go down the voddie road Laura,bn there done that end up bawlin cos you've got love handles-WHO CARES!!!!!!
You're gorgeous that's why Andrews there,he loves ya,you and him have created those beautiful children together,so what if you gained few pounds,grab a cuppa and a biccy I say and take stock of your treasures!!!!!!
I sit in the bath and think 'god I look like a budda'-then I get out and eat pringles!!! Stuff it!!!
Big fella don't like it-he knows where the door is!!!!
