One of the issues I used to discuss a lot when I was deep in the fitness competing world was my issue with cellulite. I was blessed with a beautiful case of those famous dimples.. when I say I’ve tried almost everything.. I mean it! Short of liposuction I have done everything to try and get rid of my cellulite. I prepped for 6 months straight my first show, ran my legs down to a bean pole 2x a day was eating almost nothing but fish and asparagus.. and still I stepped on stage with cellulite.. of course now being pregnant it’s become even more prevalent. My little dimples have turned into a master piece of dimples, and though I would be lying if I said I feel confident strolling the beach in a bikini, I will admit my attention to them has dramatically reduced.
My body has been through so many changes, so many transformations!
I’m proud of them all, but I won’t hide or edit my photos. I am a pasty white, thick thigh, cellulite having jiggling, healthy, strong proud momma to be.
I can’t wait to teach my son how important it is to just see beauty deeper than the flesh, to teach him to love his own imperfections as well as help the women in his life feel beautiful regardless of their imperfections.
Our bodies go through daily storms, they are drug through the mud, run into the ground sometimes, they carry the weight of our life, they keep our insides safe and protected, they create and carry children, they keep us functioning.. we need to give them a little break when it comes to being so hard on the appearance on the outside knowing the machine it’s protecting on the inside is what’s most important!
I am so proud of this body, I miss my abs some days but not enough to get down on myself.
To my mommas you are beautiful and these bodies are meant for this and like our men go out and protect us and come home with “war wounds” we bring life into the world and come home with “stretch marks and cellulite and little extra skin” and that’s okay because we both keep the world going round ❤️
