Different Body, Same Girl (Leah)

March 16, 2010

22 years old
3 pregnancies, 2 births.
Justin 4, Tanner 2

I am in love. I love my body. I love my babies. I love my life. This body is NOT the body I am familiar with, but I am grateful. I have too much to be thankful for to focus on my exterior. In the end, its not my stretch marks, or cellulite that make me who I am. I EARNED these scars. I worked for 18 months to incubate my babies. Every stretch mark, every dimple… it was ALL WORTH IT. This body may not be what is recognizable to me, but I have a new body now… the body of a mother. This is my new shape, and I am not ashamed.

    Your strength is mesmerizing! It’s such a great thing to have such an amazing attitude! I know we all feel it inside, beneath the fear, or the shame, or the uncertainty, but thank you for shouting it out!
