Gross my fat gut, cellulite, stretch marks, mole. Scroll in to get a closer look at this disgusting site and notice the huge smile on Nixon’s face. I start to remember this moment when I was walking along the rocks with my eldest and youngest boys both hand in hand. One, two, three...JUMP. Nixon’s face lights up and he starts his little contagious chuckle.
Memories ended and I’m back to being my worst critic looking at this horrible site and thinking maybe I might delete this photo so I never have to look at this terrible angle of my body again. I message Nick telling him how disgusting I looked in the photos at the beach today.
Start scrolling through my Instagram feed. Freakishly, an Ad for an App that can edit sculpture Abs, slim your body parts plus much more pops up. “Instagram is always watching.” I think about how sad it is that it has come to this. I could edit my chubby gut, remove my stretch marks, take the mole away from my neck, smooth my skin, make myself look like an absolute glamour. But I can’t help but think about “YOU”, the person who I am conning into thinking that after having three kids I have perfectly sculpted abs, zero cellulite and smooth skin. And what effect that will have to your self esteem.
So here’s the truth, I am a mum of three, I have a chubby gut, I have cellulite, I have moles, my skin is not glowingly smooth. I am my worst critic but I would rather spend time here on the beach with my little loves than going to the gym and I love treating myself to 🍔🍟🍕🍭🍪🍦🍿🍫🤤!! #dontbefooled #instagramisnotreallife #beconfident #mumbod #ilikethemround #ilikethemchunky #bigmumma #justabadangle #bereal #mumlife #mumblogger #loveyourskin
