I can never forget how stressful it was during pregnancy to move around, the pain, and the weight and how my doctor was so disappointed in me caused have gained so much after my first baby. He told me if I want be to around for long, i must lose weight and also the high sugar can lead to diabetics. I love to look good. It was difficult for me to get something that fits well.
