Even before I was turned on to this site, I’ve come to accept my post pregnancy body. I think I just got tired of feeling bad about the way my stomach looked, especially since it was completely normal. I’ve had a light bulb go off in my head the past year and I seriously despise societies views on a “beautiful” body. Women and men alike. What I see everyday in tabloids and on T.V. is NOT REAL, it’s just some stupid allusion we are supposed to believe. With that said, I gave birth to my daughter on 7/4/06. It only took a few months for the belly to go down and a few more for the stretch marks to fade. I am one of those cursed with a high metabolism and who wishes I could put on more weight. It feels like no matter how healthy I eat or crappy I still am getting smaller. Regardless, I accept myself for what I look like because as a mother of a little girl, I know I am going to have to teach her a lot in the future about body image. I don’t want her ever to have to be ashamed of her body.
