kourtney k's unretouched post preg tummy

you can prevent stretch marks with certain lotion and discipline I've learned, and this the same woman that bleached her sisters buttholes, who knows what methods she could have gone to.

I JUST wanted to remention that, because I find them gross.

Side note: when Nap85(youtuber) was pregnant she said that her doctor said for the pregnancy that she only needed to eat an extra 200-300 calories and that this is the normal for most pregnant women. She looks to still be about the same size I don't know if her belly is back to its same position, but she said that whole eating for two thing is kind of a sham. So from what she said, because I have never been pregnant, if Kourt stuck to only eating an extra 200-300 calories it might have not been as hard for her to whip her body back into shape.

my friend that is a zumba instructor taught almost up until the end of her pregnancy, i know everyone can't, but she was back last night and she looked great and had high energy. she seemed happy! it's been about 6 weeks since she had her precious boy. she said her hips are tight and something about ligaments so she has to stretch more but i know she loves zumba and the members love her too so i was happy to see her back in the game so quickly!

It's socially-based. And very real. But we choose the extent to which we want to buy in.

However, I thought the gist of this article is that Kourtney is sharing her post-preg fitness and diet tips?

I agree that media's portrayal of women generally sucks, nothing new.

That kind of pressure will where most women down, no matter how good their self-esteem.

I have 2 kids and did not have problem losing the baby weight. The issue for me is the non baby weight.

I agree with Saria in general, but I think the "transformation" type stories will always be out there. It's also misleading, because you know some of these transformations involves a workout that is basically a full time job. I agree with Webbie too, that my weight loss is my responsibility and these types of articles should not carry much weight (pun intended?). It's things like this ("What's your excuse?") that rub me the wrong way. Yes, awesome for her, and I'm sure she worked hard (let's not mention genetics, because I have a feeling that is an "excuse"), but I truly dislike the message there. It doesn't strike me as very supportive, it's more of an implied, "In yo' face, you lazy fatties". Maybe it motivates some women, but not me.

Re: stretchmarks.. it really is luck of the draw. I got them in puberty, but not during pregnancy. Even the products that are sold as preventatives can't legally be labeled as such because they can't prove they work.

I used it religiously like the bottle says, with its directions, but that doesn't count because it was magic.

But my examples are invalid because the people who have not experienced the magicalness that is wizardy creams will never believe because they have not experienced it. This is common occurrence for anything, in which people will make your statements invalid because they haven't experienced it, we've seen this numerous times, especially in nonhair.

You have to experience it to be a believer. You guys just didn't get the letter, from the hogcream school of witchcraft and stretchmark removal.

But maybe it was because I magically believed so hard that they went away, maybe, because I am magic.
Certain creams containing vitamin E may aid in healing of scar tissue/stretch marks thus affecting their appearance but will not prevent/stop them if you are genetically predisposed or have certain skin colourations. The earlier you start (when they are red/new) the better chance you have of making a difference. Despite this, some people will still get them and be unable to get rid of them.

That said who cares. I don't have any but my ex did from weight gain. Didn't bother me and shouldn't (ideally) bother anyone else.

However, we had discussed it and he knew that was what I wanted him to do, and I told my mom not to worry - I desperately want to be back in shape, and I appreciate being worked that hard! (He also takes things into account like he could tell I was stiff/sore from some work so had me do other things for two days until I was feeling better, rather than ragging on me for not being able to do as well as I had before getting sore. A good personal trainer is going to be the same way.)
