My new body definitely has taken some getting used to. I went up a few sizes from my pre-baby body to the size I am now. Some would say that’s not too shabby but it’s not only the size it’s the difference in my skin as well (and weight distribution).
I have learned over the years to accept and love my body because it’s mine and I’m only getting one! I decided Im not going to continue to spend time wishing I could change something I have no control over- as far as my stretch marks, which have already lightened up tremendously through the years.
My message to other moms struggling to embrace their new bodies,would be to (as the old saying goes) learn to accept the things you cannot change and in the process, you WILL overcome your insecurities. And always remember what you got out of it! Children are such a joy and a blessing! If you keep that in mind you WILL be fine. Xoxo
