This is my before pic!
In this photo, I am 4 weeks postpartum. Time really flies!
It’s amazing that my little Sol was born four weeks ago.
As I look in the mirror, I see everything my body has been through over the last 10 months. It’s amazing how our bodies morph and transform in order to create and deliver a new life into the world.
My first instinct is to criticize my body and tell it all of the ways it visually fails me.
But instead, I affirm the miracle it has just achieved. What if we stop comparing our bodies to supermodels and just accept what is??
Yes, I gained 40 lbs. Yes, I have new stretch marks. Yes my belly is soft and gushy instead of toned and flat.
But I’m proud of my body.
It’s been through a lot and here I am at the end of the process.
I do plan to workout and exercise in order to lose weight but I won’t criticize the after effects of producing a miracle.
