SOOOOOO last week I posted a video, wearing a sports bra and shorts and I was pleasantly surprised to receive quite a few private messages and a discussion on my team call about my saggy mommy tummy - yep, I said it!
I had women telling me that they felt NORMAL because they saw that they were normal.......that despite their thoughts of me as having a perfect six pack.....I DIDNT.....that I still had bits tucked away just like they did! Tears were shed and emotions exchanged....this is the REAL stuff that makes us RELATE to one another!!!
YES I had a sixpack before getting pregnant........YES I still have crazy core muscles.......YES I had the saggy mom tummy BEFORE I got pregnant with Keelyn, YES I STILL have it cause, I mean, I JUST had a baby 6 weeks ago........
YES, just like everyone else, I tuck that sucker in.
To my friends who haven't had kids who questioned the high waisted workout pants out there wondering "how" that's fashionable.....it's NOT but you know what.....it's realistic.....that's where we put our incredible reminder of the amazing journey our bodies went through to carry and deliver our precious babes.
NO I do not want a cream or wrap to make it go away, I know that it will get smaller as I continue to exercise and eat healthy! NO I'm NOT ashamed of it, nor am I ashamed of my "Mommy marks". YES I embrace it.......just like I embrace my saggy Mommy boobies.......
Have I considered a lift or implants....YEP, am I gonna do it? who knows? I waver back and forth on it all the time.....I truly don't think I will, but so what if I do. This is all about how we FEEL about ourselves........if you wanna get a tummy tuck, DO IT. If you wanna get a breast lift DO IT.....if you feel shame or embarassment about your saggy bits....its NORMAL.......if you wanna fix it, fix it. If you wanna tuck it in, tuck it in, but don't for ONE second think that you're alone in the self-image issues you're having! You're SO NOT.....every single woman out there has SOME part of themselves that they don't like or think about changing......
every single one of us tries to embrace and love ourselves as we are.....some more successful than others.
So here is another video, showing ME.....with my real, saggy mummy tummy!
I'm JUST like YOU! 💖
