#nobodyshaming my postpartum body

That time when I wrote a whole post only to find it deleted…yeahhhhh welcome to the abridged version of Day 7!!! How is your 21 Days of Summer going? Comment down below and let me know!

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: 

  1. 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. 
  2. 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.  
  3. 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?
