“Slowly I am learning to love myself again…”


“I am most proud of my body because I made a little person with it. All of my life I was raised that beauty and weight are the most important things in life and then smarts. So when I gained more than 65lbs I was so embarrassed that I tried my best to hide my body. Today I am still struggling with how I look and feel, but I am learning that this is my body, and not only did I create a little person in it but I am still providing for this little person while nursing. Slowly I am learning to love myself again and to start realizing that weight, and beauty are not what will make me happy, but being healthy and loving myself will.”
