1 pregnancy; 1 birth
3 years 1.5 months postpartum
I made it a goal to feel sexier when my son reached 3 years of age and I wore a dress! A short dress at that! lol Everyone commented on how beautiful I looked and oddly, for awhile there I was embarrassed by the compliments because after hiding in clothes, hiding in my home, and no longer taking pictures of myself, this attention felt new.
I gave away every zip up hoodie and sweatpants, every over-sized clothing so I would STOP hiding. I began buying clothes that fit better and flattered my new body. The body that I’ve come to see as beautiful from the beginning of my progress. And now I am turning 28 shortly and I am more than satisfied with my self image. I can tell my confidence and love for myself shows when I smile, as well as in pictures, because I have my ‘glow’ back. I no longer have body pains at night and am still in no rush to be pre-preg size. I know I am going at a great pace and staying healthy, eating healthy, and pretty much just living and enjoying my family. Thank you SOAM. All the support from this community has given me a new definition of woman and beautiful.
