Well, here it goes…After years of self-esteem issues, here I am. I’m 32, gave birth to the most amazing little girl the day after my 30th birthday. The heart tattoo on my belly is “her heart”, as she calls it. Red for ruby, our birthstone. I weigh less now, just by a few pounds, than before I had my darling, but I’m far from shaped the same. It was all more than worth it though, and I know I should be mighty proud of my mommy body, and I’m really working on it. Thank you for this site, it’s so empowering and REAL. You are all beautiful. Thanks for giving me a place to be secure and share.
