This is me at 108 lbs. Laughing, smiling, projecting a confidence that I didn't feel. I HATED my body.
Even in my teenage years, I'd averaged somewhere around 130 lbs, so you can imagine the shock of going from 126 lbs. pre-pregnancy to 167 lbs. at delivery to 107 lbs. just a few months after.
I felt like after everything we had been through, my body just wouldn't show up for me. I felt unattractive. I was uncomfortable in my own skin. None of my clothes fit. And no matter what I did, I just couldn't gain the weight back.
Eventually, I realized that it was deeper than the weight. I was suffering from postpartum anxiety and depression.
The minute I focused on healing and managing my mental health, things started changing.
I was happier...healthier. I felt like I was able to be a better mom. And slowly but surely, the numbers on the scale started to rise.
I'm in such a great season of life now! Go ahead & swipe left to behold the happy weight 🙌🏾😂
Sometimes we have to focus on our insides first to reflect the changes we'd like to see on the outside.
What do you love about your body? How have you dealt with unwanted changes? Do you prioritize your mental health? Why or why not?
