I was in a restaurant this weekend and opened the door to the restroom as another woman was coming out…she was mid-t-shirt-tug…and I saw her Mama tummy as she exited by me. A year ago, I would have thought “ew” or “poor her”, “gross”, “thank god I don’t have stretch marks like that”. But this weekend? After a year of reading this site? I admired her, applauded her, honored her…as I now admire instead of judge myself for my own “faults”. Thank you SO MUCH for this site. At forty, I truly feel I am at my best…emotionally, spiritually AND physically. I know what is important; I have a beautiful 4 year old daughter, an amazing husband, my family, my friends, my health. All of you are wonderful and thank you SO MUCH for the stories and photos you share. And I REALLY admire your photography abilities! It’s so hard to get a shot of yourself!!!
