I’m Not Perfect, But That’s OK With Me (Kate)

I am 25 years old. I have a beautiful 19 month old son. I LOVE this page and visit often. I have always had problems with my body, as I am sure most women do, but I have never hated my body. I have always been curvy and thicker than most girls. I am 5’9″ with a large bone structure and big hips. After having my son, I remember many of my friends, some also post partum, including me in their plans to shed the baby wieght. They’d say “We need to start exercising and dieting, I can’t stand looking like this”. I would think “We?”, how funny of them to automatically assume that I felt the same way? I thought it would be nice to lose wieght, but I didn’t torture myself over it, like some of my friends did. I think this had to do with me being a big girl, growing up, I didn’t feel like I had changed much since giving birth. Some days I feel great about myself, and I dress accordingly but other days I throw on a sweater and don’t leave the house. When I feel like that, I try to convince myself that the world isn’t ending because my stomach is a little pudgier than it used to be, or because I feel like a whale. It helps to also think about how lucky I am to have such a beautiful life, with great, encouraging people in it. That gets me by :)

    Wow! You look amazing! Your story fits my life. I’m also 5’9 and have a big bone structure. Some days
    I feel amazing ans other days I feel like I should not leave the house.. I’m still hoping to tone more but your confidence helps inspire me to stay strong and I hope you never let anyone put you or your body down.

I love the feedback and encouraging words from all of you, it helps me get through my day! And i love to hear that someone else has my body structure, i always feel so different from other women, its nice to have someone to relate to :)

    If you’re “thick” I wanna be thick too, lol! You have a very attractive shape and great legs. And I’d kill for your belly. Love what you got, because from my eyes, you’re a great looking momma.
