My World Changed When He Entered It (Samantha)

April 20, 2011

21 years old, 2 1/2 year old son

As a teenager I was always very self conscious of my body. I was constantly striving to maintain that “perfect” look. I was modeling and working hard to break into that extremely difficult world. I never had to work out or diet to stay in shape, I was just naturally thin. 3 months after I turned 18 I found out I was pregnant with my boyfriend of 4 years. I was very excited and thought I would be able to bounce back right after having him. I was wrong. For about a year after my beautiful son, Donte, was born I hated my body and was uncomfortable with myself almost all the time. A minute didn’t go by that I wasn’t trying to think of ways to get back in shape. I was working out, I was eating healthy and still nothing was helping. As time went by I became more and more comfortable with myself and realized that this Mommy body IS my perfect look. Nothing else matters! I brought a funny, gorgeous, smart little boy into this world and I wouldn’t change that for anything. My world no longer revolves around being thin or feeling comfortable in a bikini. I really could NOT care less if I never wear a bikini again. My world now revolves around that baby boy that came from my womb and I embrace every new curve I have gained from him.

    You have a really muscular figure – much like my best friend. Raise your head up high, ma’am. You are gorgeous! :) And your little guy is really cute! ;)
