This morning I was scrolling through some of your #transformationtuesday pics. They show some impressive amounts of dedication, hard work and perseverance.
This is MY transformation! ☝🏻This me... scouring Facebook and my own photos for pics of me. These 2 on the left are all I can find that show my body. (& i was tagged in them) I was at war with my body. Constantly feeling like a sub-par version of my pre-baby self. Like a ruined version. Clothes were used to HIDE me. That top smile is an awkward 'dear God don't take my photo' smile.
I've now had 5 babies and my body is more stretched, more lined and older than it was after my first baby (almost) 11 yrs ago. But my 'after& #39; pic is me. Bed Hair, no makeup, (no shirt under that jumper) hairy legs and all natural.
But here I am on a journey of peace. I am a CREATION. I am not just MORE than my body, but my body is MORE than beautiful. 💃🏼 It is radiant and glorious and remarkable and beautiful.
It is the smile that makes my children smile, the hand that makes traveling safer, warmth that makes darkness less scary. It is nourishment for babies and growth for life. It is strength for my adventures and a canvas for my style.
It is the laugh that echoes in my kitchen and the embrace for my husband.
This is the body that is not only capable and strong but beautiful. This is the body that FINALLY gets put in the photo, gets to swim at the beach and wear pretty dresses. NOT because of a size difference or weight difference but because of a shift in my thinking.
Because I choose to see myself how those adoring little eyes see me. Because being at war is so tiring, depressing and NOBODY wins. 😪😭
Don't just accept your body. Embrace it! 😍🙌🏻#ihaveembraced #bopo #teamselflove2017 #transformationtuesday #bbg #bbgmums #sweatwithkayla #kaylasarmy #bodylove #selflove #mumbod #mumof5 #fitness #bopowarrior #bodypositive #bodylove4all #lovemymumbod #bodyacceptance #iambeautiful #iamworthy #innerpeace #bodyimage #bodyimagemovement @bodyimagemovement #bbg_community
