I've decided to love myself, today.

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I discovered a mistake I made after my first daughter was born. I didn't like my body, but I couldn't get up the motivation to change it. Looking back now, I know it was because none of my clothes fit, so I was wearing either too tight or too loose clothes, most of which were passed on to me from someone else. Nothing I wore felt good on me, or felt like ME. I finally figured out - how could I have possibly been motivated to change, when I felt like crap??

So now, after the birth of Felicity, even though I may (hopefully) lose a lot of weight, I am still determined to like myself now. That means, buying new clothes for myself (most second hand anyway!) that fit me wonderfully NOW. I've went out and spent a couple hundred dollars and I have a whole new wardrobe, and already I've lost a couple pounds. Looking forward to continuing along this path of looking good and feeling good, every step of the way, at all my different weights!

    It is so important to feel good now! Just think of how amazing that body was in having those precious little ones! You should love it every time you love them. I lose easier when I treat myself right. emoticon

    I think that is the best thing you could do for yourself! Loving or not loving your body is soo infectious to other areas of your life. Also from what I understand most women need new clothes after baby anyway because their body is just different than it was before.

    Take care!
