No, this isn’t a before and after picture. Instead, this is my same body in pictures taken only a few seconds apart. Isn’t it amazing what a little styling, posing and editing can do?•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••I very easily could have posted just the picture on the left claiming that to be my current postpartum body. I could easily let you believe that I have bounced back quickly and say it’s all due to proper activity and eating BUT then I’d be lying. Truth is, the picture on the right is my body. At 4 weeks postpartum, I still have extra fat on me, my stomach has loose skin, my hips are wider, and I still have healing to do. In addition my activity has pretty much consisted of solely rocking our baby girl when she is fussy. As for my diet,well it’s been anything but ideal. I’m tired, I’m always starving, and when pairing those two things together, junk food is my go to. While it’s hard for me to post a picture like this, I wanted to do so to show you other mamas to never compare or always believe what you see. Just like pregnancy, everyone’s postpartum journey is different and each takes time. By staying patient, staying realistic and by doing your best, you will get to where you want to be. So take your time, be self forgiving and enjoy this new season of life. It’s challenging but oh so worth it! #positivethinking#postpartumbody body #postpartum#4weekspostpartum#sidebyside#bodypositive#motherhood#postbabybody
30lbs sure looks like a hell of a lot.
The picture on the left is a girl at 185lbs who was in a happy relationship until her boyfriend told her she was too fat. She agreed and didn’t want to loose him so she started eating right and going to the gym to keep him. Fast forward two months and he breaks up with her anyway regardless of any progress she made. But she didn’t give up on loosing weight because she was liking what fitness was doing and how she was loosing weight and getting more noticed.
The girl on the right has started 2018 off right at 155lbs. She hasn’t progressed nearly as much as she wants too but it refocusing to loose some weight before a trip to Costa Rica. She may have crushes on people nearly double her age but she rolls with the punches and loves life. She isn’t sure what she’s gonna do for her career but she’s sure that she will continue to workout to reach those goals she set so long ago
