Almost a year on, things are much better! (Anonymous)

My previous entry was “I almost want to cry (Anonymous)” and now I am very happy with my body image! Although I would love to be the size 12 (Australian sizing) that I was before kids! so I have a way to go yet. I now see a dietitian and she helps educate me with my food intake and how much I should exercise according to my body mass etc – totally recommend this option! its no fad diet or anything, and I feel great being able to have some time to myself to talk to someone about my emotional eating as well! Because, in all honesty I can’t just blame the 2 pregnancies or months of breastfeeding alone that turned my body inside-out its all the emotional eating! hormones?! This is a fantastic site, I thank you for this ! It boosts my self-confidence every time I look at it. My kids are happy and healthy and thats what is the most important thing to me above all else! xx

    I looked at your old photos and then your new ones and you have come a long way. I applaud your efforts. You should really feel proud of yourself.

    You look beautiful hon. Really you do. and you have come a long way since having your babies. And to be honest you know i’m a size 12 (australian sizing) after having my baby and i’m still not happy. Its just the mentality that us women often have that we are never happy with what we are given, babies or no babies there is always something that we dont like. Supermodels are often seen as perfect but believe me in their minds they often think they are too fat or something else stupid like that.

    I think embrace your curvacious figure and focus on being healthy and emotional eating is normal but if you want to eat when your feeling insecure try snacking on healthy stuff.. Dark chocolate is considered “healthy” ;) ;) :) hehe -bless your a wonderful mother.
