Update! Slowly learning to love my new body! (Anonymous)

I had posted 10 months ago about how much I hated my body and how much I envied all of the thin girls I see day in and day out. I am proud to say (although I have not lost a single pound) I am now slowly learning to love my body and be proud of it! I took this picture and keep it with me to look at when I’m feeling down or ugly. For some reason I just feel so good about it! I know I’m nowhere near where I want to be but I think I’m finally ok with it! Hopefully things will just keep getting better and better from here!

    I can relate to your story. you know i used to be so tall and skinny that people asked me to model. I was conscious of my body, even when i was a skinny girl. I cried whenever I gained a little weight.

    After getting married and giving birth to my little girl, I felt so liberated! I could eat everything I want and I loved my body more than ever. People always say that I should try to regain my old body, but I don’t care what other people think. I’m in a happy place and I don’t want to lose weight just because other people think I should.

    You have an amazing body, and I’m so jealous of your pretty skin! Keep your chin up and always think that you are beautiful because you really are. ALL MOTHERS ARE BEAUTIFUL!

    well, you are great and you are very cute, so I don’t think you need to worry about anything.

    You should be proud – you have a lovely figure, and not just ‘a lovely figure for a mom’!
