Well, my daughter is going to be a year next week, so this feels like a good time to celebrate what an amazing year of changes it has been. It’s been the most profound year of my life, and I wouldn’t change any of it for the world. Having said that, it hasn’t been an easy year. I suffered from ppd quite badly in the first four months until I dealt with it through counseling and medication. I’m doing so well now, and though I struggle a lot with post-partum body image (and it’s funny to think I had issues before now too…) I’m feeling quite good now and in control. Seeing these pictures of myself, and not concentrating on any numbers, I see that I look alright and I should be proud of myself and love my “new” body. I’m far from losing the “baby” weight, but I hope that I’m on my way.
