I Love My Body

(Baby) Onesie: Carters // Headband: Target 
(Me) Headband: Buckle // Sweater: Target // Earrings: Down East Basics // Jeans: Destination Maternity
I have been completely MIA from this little blogging space of mine. Not only because I am a full time Mommy (which is crazy busy), but since having Olivia I have wanted to just devote my full time and attention to her...and it's been so wonderful. 

I have missed the blogging world and have especially missed posting a few times a week being able to document my life and all the memories that I want to look back on and cherish forever.
For the past couple of months, I have been SO self conscious about my body image and that is why I have refrained from posting any pictures of myself on my blog or on my Instagram. I have felt like I have to be the weight that I was (135 pounds) to post any fashion posts or just posts in general picturing myself. The weight has been very difficult to get off. I have really been watching what I eat and started drinking Isagenix shakes every morning. In less than a month, I have already lost 11 pounds. So I am getting there and I am proud of myself for the weight that I have been able to lose so far! I have also heard that women who have c-sections, that its a lot harder to get the weight off. Don't know if that is true or not??

For the past few days I have been really thinking and praying about my body image and about this body that God gave me. I woke up this morning looking in the mirror at myself and felt like a million bucks. It doesn't matter if I am not 135 pounds like I was before having Olivia. It doesn't matter if I have a little pooch tummy that sticks out a bit. It doesn't matter if I am still wearing maternity pants and tops. It doesn't matter what others think of me. None of that matters. I am grateful for this wonderful body that I have been blessed with and even MORE grateful for this body that gave me my sweet beautiful daughter that means more than anything to me. So poochy tummy, cellulite, stretch marks, surgery scar and flat butt I will embrace you because I have her. I am still going to work it like it's nobody's business!

I am back to blogging once again!

You're so right about body image! you're more than your body, and your body can do so much, you can't help but be thankful!

Way to go with reframing those body thoughts! Embrace everything your body has given you, including that precious baby girl!

This is awesome! I've been dealing with this too. We just have to remember that our bodies did something wonderful and went through alot! We carried a baby. We were strong enough to give birth or have a c-section. We are strong and beautiful.

Get it girl! I too, have struggled with body image issues for a quite some time, and it's so refreshing when someone confesses it out loud followed by embracing their body. I'm proud of you for finding the silver lining, and can't wait to read more posts. :)
