Mom Insecurity #1

postbaby pics

So, I know I’m going to hate myself in the morning for posting this. Maybe I’ve had a little too many glasses of wine tonight, ’cause on a “normal” day, I’d never reveal this insecurity to the public.
One thing that’s changed since my weight loss is the amount of pictures I take of myself. Naturally, you’d think my confidence level has grown and of course I want to memorialize it in photos, but a good percentage of the photos don’t get posted anywhere for anyone else to see. The reason why? Well, it’s because of these crazy “mom love handles”!!! How is it that I’ve lost all this weight and slimmed down to better shape then I ever would have dreamed, but still have this ridiculous access skin?! I’m well aware that we are always much more critical of own selves, and perhaps you don’t see it but I do and I know this is not a problem I had pre-baby. 

Do I give up or do I keep trying to recreate pre-baby body? My insecurities tell me I will never succeed, but my heart and determination hopes for the best. I’ll continue this #getfit #journey and see where it takes me.

  1. You totally look amazing. But you are also right we are our own worst critics. Like you I have worked hard to become fit and slim and yet some days I look in the mirror and wonder what more I can do to get rid of the slight pouch I appear to have? And than I take a step back and I look at how healthy I am, how much my blood pressure has come down, how I can run up the stairs without gasping for breath, and I think that is what I need to measure myself against. Love yourself and your body and if you want to continue to work out because you enjoy it than do that too. I think you look awesome.

    1. Personally, I look at other “fit moms” profiles and i want to get to there with there it. Why can’t I get amazing abs and toned arm muscles?!!? I do DO have to admit the amazing amount of motivation that the my new friends on social media and this blog site give me. I know i do this for myself, but the motivation that you all give me online really make me wanna keep me going. i appreciate you so much. Thank you @jay-lyn Doerksen
