Embrace Your Body! (Mrs. Roussell)

Previous post here.

My First Post was at 4 week pp and I felt horrible about my body..I was constantly comparing my body to other mothers but I now realize every woman Is different and as we get older our bodies change. It’s up to me to change my attitude along with my body!! I have diastasis recti so I can’t do traditional abdominal work outs so I still have a pouch..to solve that problem I bought spanx :-), my weight is between 125-129..my Pre pregnancy weight was 123 so I can fit most of my old clothes but my boobs are still huge and my hips are wider…I’ve embraced my curves…my message to all new moms is as time goes on your body will change..EMBRACE IT..appreciate your body for what it is…it made a HUMAN!

    I so agree with you! You look gorgeous Mrs. yeah I know you’re wearing spanx but so what, lots of us did at one point or another in our lives. I wish I had your curves.

    I think you look gorgeous in your photo, like a full figured REAL woman. You got a model pose going on too! Looking good!

    Just want to add, though, that all women are real women, no matter what size. :)

    WOW! You look so much sexier and glamorous in this picture than the bikini from before being pregnant. Good on you mama! Stunning.
