Postpartum Body Image

  • I could focus on the fact that a majority of my pre-pregnancy clothes don’t fit.
  • I could focus on the scale that’s hasn’t really budged in months.
  • I could focus on how my hips are wider, my stomach loser, my entire body composition changed… Truth be told, there’s A L O T I could focus on

But why would I focus on the “old me” when I’m 𝙣𝙤𝙩 my old self?

After admittedly struggling over my body image postpartum, I’ve come to the realization that the more I focus on “𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦”, the more I lose sight of what’s happening 𝗡𝗢𝗪.

Sure a lot of my old clothes still don’t fit (& they might not ever 🤷🏼‍♀️), but instead of feeling insecure trying to fit into them, I’m slowly replacing them with new ones. This has been the simplest concept, but y’all this has helped me so much.

Finding what is flattering for my new mom bod has been interesting; However, since I’ve updated my wardrobe, I am truly embracing this new chapter in my life, my body, and loving all the “mommy fashion” that comes with it!
