Stretch marks are a pain in the butt, aren't they? Literally!

Unfortunately, there isn't much that can be done about them, other than to accept them for what they are... marks of success! They aren't a death sentence and don't define you.

Personally, I'll probably never wear a bikini (because childbirth left me with many) but that's okay. I'm still gonna look great in a one-piece. :)

When you lose the weight and get to your goal, all those marks will have faded away. Mine did after having five children.

Ever since I've come out of the hospital, I've been a roller coaster of emotions.
And today, I hit a low point.
Sure, I've been able to walk around and up and down and around the block. But I do miss the workouts. My body hasn't completely healed from the emergency surgery.
Food intake, naturally, started to be my comforter. Luckily, an order of books came in and I ditched the sweets and got lost in reading (which is also a "bad" thing -I didn't track my food in time that day!)

But today I looked in the mirror to make sure things were healing, and my stretch marks stood out to me. I'm only 30 but my body has been neglected and abused and I'm at the "worst" I've ever been...

Argh! To run on the treadmill, to use those weights and build up my stamina and strength again! But I know this quiet time requires a new kind of strength in which I find myself weak. What do you suggest? Doctor said no yoga/stretching (which also kills me). How do you find motivation when the scars sing of woe?

Such a low day for me :-/ I really appreciate everyone's feedback. Thanks for your time and thoughts emoticon
