    @PinkMermaid:  I think she came off as bitchy when she was actually trying to brag while acknowledging that bragging might rub people the wrong way. I don’t think her intention was to annoy anyone. You can’t judge tone on Facebook, but I think her tone was playful, not bitchy. At any rate, if people weren’t sensitive about their own weight,  nobody would mind that she’s bragging about hers. Rather than go throuh life being insecure and defensive, , people should take their health into their own hands, eat healthily, and love the body they gey as a result of it.

    My first thought is “it has only been 8 days, why are you so concerned with your body and not your babies”? I would expect a ton of baby photos and updates, but posting a brag about mom’s body when her babies are still in incubates rubs me the wrong way. If the babies were healthy and at home and she was posting this brag, I would assume it was a poor decision made from lack of sleep and possibly needing a ‘win’.

    @E_Lynne615:  I say good for her! There are soooooo many people who brag about losing weight on fb. To me, this is even more worthy of bragging. She didn’t do anything irresponsible or unhealthy to gain the weight.

    tacky. “sorry, ladies. hate me if you must” yeah gag. ppl aren’t gonna be hating her for losing (which is either yay or who gives a shit) but for her obnoxious self promotion with a fake apology for it while you’re doing it? lol. guess she really needed an ego boost by feeling better than her own friends! dunno this person, but that’s how those comments come across to me.

    @E_Lynne615:  I think the post comes across as unnecessary and anyway losing the weight is only half the battle. Good for you. You lost all the weight super quick but how is that going to help your skin snap back (it actually will make it worse) or tone your abs (it wont). As someone who had a kid and lost the weight with no problem, I would just shrug at her post because I know that the losing the weight part is the easy part.

    She also sounds immature in the post.

    Lol a bit preachy no? I still stand by my statement that assuming people who think this girl had a bitchy attitude are “weight conscious” and “insecure” about their own body. Pa-lease.

    That’s a widespread judgment if I’ve ever heard one.

    Her wording is what makes it offputting. But I mean good for her and quite frankly I couldn’t care less what people say on their Facebook. If you don’t like it unfollow her posts I mean really don’t waste your time and good sense worrying or being bothered by people who have poor taste. If she’s bragging about beating her child or something like that that’s the time to start caring lol just saying.
