Learning to love my body is probably one of the hardest things I’ve tried to accomplish and still work on daily.
I go back and forth constantly on hating and loving my ever-changing body. Some days, I feel shame and embarrassment as I notice the marks and extra skin that has appeared since having my two babies. My body changed abruptly and I definitely did not snap back. Then, some days I have boosts of confidence. Whether it’s just a random moment, my husband compliments me, or I just realize how thankful I am for my body.
Body positivity takes constant work. Some days are perfect, other days are rough, and some days are right in between. I just need to remind myself to give my body the love and appreciation it needs and deserves. I have moments of weakness, but I LOVE my body. It carried and nurtured my two beautiful children. I love what my body did for me. I love what my body continues to do for me. I love how strong my body is after all the changes and everything it’s been through.
If you struggle with your body image as well, I just want you to know that you are not alone! I struggle everyday and so do man women and mothers around me. That is okay! This is my safe place and I hope that everyone who encounters my page will feel the same way.
