So, I just made a human! (Yas! She did that.) I’m three months postpartum and I can honestly say I struggled initially with my #newmombod. But, I’m done body shaming. And I’m ready to conquer summer 17. The three things I can do to be kind to my body this summer are:
- Read the Word about confidence. In the past year when I get to a place where I feel low about my body I go into the Binle and read scriptures to encourage myself. God has opened his word to me and I can’t wait to share this series of revelations on confidence.
- I am going to go to somebody’s pool or beach and let my stretch marks shine. This is huge for me. I didn’t develop stretch marks until 2 weeks before I went into labor. They are probably the biggest change to my body and the hardest thing I have had to get comfortable with.
- I am going to work on being comfortable in THIS skin. I was so nervous during my pregnancy about weight gain. Then I had Kamila and I was consumed with wearing wraps and working out. But it took 9 months to get here and I deserve to be kind to myself as I work to get somewhere else.
The thing that has been most helpful is my reading of the Bible and walking in confidence. God has been so good to me, I going to share how He has kept me from being filled with negativity comes in a series in August, so stayed tuned.
What are you doing to be kind to your curves?
