I had my first child at age 36, my second at age 39. This is me at 40. I don’t recognize my body. I used to do yoga several times a week, feel very strong and fit, and was a size 2, with a small waist and firm breasts. I’m all mush now, and it’s hard for me to look at. I love my kids, but I don’t feel very pretty. I surprised myself with the body image issues I’ve had postpartum, especially since I’m such a strong feminist, and have always scorned dieting and any hint of the Lean Cuisine size-conscious mindset. Thank you for this website. I love that it’s here, and all these women are here.
