You’ll often hear the sentences like this, “pregnancy ruins your body”, “that’s it now, you’ll never get your body back”. Are they true?
My simple answer... NO! You just have to work harder. This is the healthiest I’ve ever been, the closest I’ve ever watched my diet, the cleanest I’ve eaten and the least amount of sugar...but it requires minimal effort. This is the best I’ve felt mental and the most confident I’ve been in my body. I am happy.
Self-love. How you feel about yourself on the inside is what will manifest into what’s on the outside. Yes, there’s been days I’ve looked in the mirror and cried at the ‘mammy pouch’, the enormous varicose veins on my legs. But! I am so proud and thankful of how resilient and adaptive my body is. It’s not here just to look aesthetically pleasing. I may never have abs, rock hard muscles or -12% bodyfat, I’m ok with that.
I’ve given up looking in the mirror and hating what I see, or wishing the days away or watching the scales. I am happy in this body, I would never wish for anyone else’s. Comparison is the thief of all joy, as they say.
Childbirth and pregnancy are a gift... never forget that, there’s so many women out there who would give anything to have a little baby, not for a second would they consider you ruined but rather lucky.
You are not ruined! You are still perfect and built for everything you once hoped and dreamed. We have to stop being so hard on ourselves, it takes time to grow into being a mammy, you too are a new person.
