I love the body positivity movement.
I love that we’re embracing all shapes and sizes and body types and the extra skin and fat and cellulite.
I love the message “love your body”.
The problem is that it’s so, so much easier said than done.
We’re told to love our bodies – stretch marks and all. Because a miracle happened within the embrace of those stretch marks.
But when you’re living in a society that screams “love your body!” then whispers “but change so that you don’t look like you had a baby” it can be hard to not wish your body looked a certain way.
This can lead to feeling like you’re not good enough and can make your postpartum recovery that much harder because you’re under this insane pressure to “bounce back”.
The good news is there’s hope (as there always is).
And you can get to a place of greater peace with your body.
