@brokeninnj:  First of all, congrats on losing all that weight! And congrats on having your baby 🙂

Second of all, SHAME on every person who has criticized your weight, especially after having a baby. That is insane!! Tell your husband to have a word with them!

If you are healthy and happy then you are perfect.

This is none of their business, if I were you I would tell them so.

@brokeninnj:  Where is your husband in all of this? He should be telling them to shut up! If I was in your shoes I’d be more angry at him. You can’t help rude in-laws, but your husband needs to stand up for you.

If it happens when your husband isn’t there, I’d simply say coldly, “My weight is healthy”. If they persist, get up and leave / ask them to leave, depending on whose house you’re at.

A flat stomach after pregnancy isn’t always possible. My muscles are stretched and separated and a flat stomach is not going to happen unless I have surgery.

Well done for getting to 135, that’s a huge achievement for someone who used to be 250+!

@brokeninnj:  I probably would have let out a huge “EXCUSE ME!?” with a nice glare at my husband and then a “GET THE FUCK OUT”.

Congrats on the birth of your sweet baby and losing all the weight! You are awesome!

Seriously though, I would get your husband to say something to them asap.

@brokeninnj:  As rude and insensitive as they are being I am sure they are not meaning to be. I am sure they know how hard the journey of weightloss was for you and probably think they are being helpful.

Next time someone says anything just thank them for their concern and let them know that whilst you are sure they are just trying to be helpful their words have hurt you. I am sure they will apologise and never mention it again.

@brokeninnj:  Tell them to have a baby and see how flat their stomach is 2 days later! Honestly, congrats on the weight loss AND congrats on keeping it where it is right after birth!
