Hi, my name is Eve and I suffered from postpartum depression and to make matters worse, my body was completely wrecked by my sweet beautiful baby boy.
I confess, I was ignorant when it came to exercise and taking care of my pregnant body. I had always heard, you’re eating for two now, so I comfort ate and ate and ate. Needless to say, I blew up like a hot air balloon and gained nearly 70lbs!
After childbirth, my body was gone.
Coupled with a slight case of postpartum depression, I was toxic. When I should have been happy for this wonderful life event, I was always sad and grumpy and my friends quit wanting to hang out with me because they just couldn’t understand what I was going through.
It didn’t help that I was a single mom.
To make a very long story short, in my intro post, this is about my journey–this is about my Mommy Makeover Surgery–and more about my decision to take back control of my emotions and my body.
First, you shouldn’t be depressed because of your body. The price of a mommy is less than a car, and unlike a car (or a house), you are always in your body. It is important that you treat it with more care and dignity than you would a nice car. It’s you. It’s your earth-suit.
