Do Babies Ruin Bodies?

22 Apr

I was a little disgusted at this comment from Jillian Michaels. I love her and I love the show the Biggest Loser but this can be a very hurtful comment to those of us who have had children. In a recent interview she expressed her desire to adopt instead of  having children due to the impact it has on a woman’s body. Well, yes my body is nothing like before I got pregnant.  After my first daughter I did go right back to my old size. I have a ways to go after my second but that is my own emotional eating and stress that has caused my weight issues not the birth of my peanut. I would definitely take  my girls and my now body than my skinny self and no children!

She is a fitness trainer. She would know how to stay fit during pregnancy and she could go right back to it after. She is not saying much about her skills if she thinks that. I have seen many a mother go right back to their pre-pregancy body by staying healthy during pregnancy and continuing that after. I do applaud her for adopting but before she counsels people on body image she may want to seek counseling herself!
