So much for the quicker to bounce back philosophy for young moms when it comes to their bodies and weight. According to a national study conducted by the University of Michigan,women who gave birth before 19 had 32% risk of being obese later in life, as oppose to women who had given birth later. It seems that this is partly because of the way young moms eat while pregnant, which leaves most women with the extra pounds for life.

So are you still struggling with the baby weight? Tell us how careful were you about what you ate when pregnant with your child?
