I am a mother of four. My first child was born normally, the second via C-section. 12 years later, I gave birth to my third child by cesarean. And then I had my fourth a year and a half later the same way. C-sections are not the easiest procedure for women to go through. I’ll talk about this another time. For now, anyone who has had a C-section knows about the terrible condition that your stomach is left in. You have a hanging shelf, extra skin, and for some women like me… You end up with diastasis recti.
Before my third child, I was fit. I was at a great weight and BMI and I certainly went to the gym a lot to town. I felt incredible! Except after my first child, it was the best condition I’ve ever been in. I was truly physically fit. Eating all vegetarian diet, going to the gym every day… I felt like 100 bucks. After the third child came, I didn’t really gain all that much weight. After my fourth? I was 170 pounds. For my height at 5 foot three and at a small bone structure, I should weigh approximately 130. That was really overweight for me.
The power of God is incredible. You see, I decided this year that it was time for me to start getting back in shape. I said my prayer in July 2022, asking the heavens to please bless me with this goal and its success. I wanted to get back down to my normal weight, and get my body back into shape as much as I could. Only a month and a half later, I lost 32 pounds. I was thrilled. But I still had that terrible looking stomach. It’s something I have to deal with until I can officially find a way to get it fixed. But the weight loss? I was truly proud of myself and grateful to heaven both.
There are so many people in this world that struggle to lose weight.

There are so many other people out there that claim to have miracle pills, dietary supplements, and shakes, that promise a person can lose a significant amount of weight without having to do anything else but to take their product.
