What do you see when you look in the mirror?

My body grew and housed this perfect tiny human. For the past 5 months it has been his only source of food.

So why then have I spent the past 5 months frustrated that my abs haven’t returned, or my arms and thighs are chunkier? 🤷🏻‍♀️

I’m human, and I struggle with things like body image and what society has deemed “beautiful” or “desirable.” 

Even though I FEEL strong and empowered as a mom, that’s not what I SEE when I look in the mirror.

Why is there such a disconnect between body and mind?
And ultimately what’s more important; that my baby boy has a mom with her pre-baby body back? Or that my baby boy has a happy and healthy mom, who feels fit and strong and loves her body for the amazing things it’s capable of?

I have a challenge for us! This week, remind yourself
“My body is precious, and I will NOT
Curse it.
Mistreat it.
Compare it.
Hate it.
Berate it.
or take it for granted.

I’m a work in progress when it comes to these things, but wherever you are in your journey, know that you are beautiful, capable, and stronger than you know!

If you are looking for a community of support and a place where you can share your struggles and successes, a place without judgement where you can focus on some self-care and self-love, fill out the form below.
I’ve got you covered!
