Stop Lying To Yourself

I gained almost 60lbs during my pregnancy. I ate a burger and fries almost daily. I ate chocolate chip cookies every single morning because that’s what I was craving for. Of course I wanted to make sure my baby was getting proper nutrients so I would scarf back a ton of spinach and other vegetables, but then would have a massive piece of chocolate cake afterwards. Every single day I said at least once or twice “I’m eating for two. I’m allowed to eat like this.” But that’s where I was wrong. Being pregnant isn’t an excuse to eat like crap. Sure you are going to have these outrageous cravings that feel like you’re life is literally over if you don’t get your hands on that double chocolate fudge brownie this instance. But I gained unnecessary weight because I didn’t care to control those cravings. I didn’t understand the “everything in moderation” statement. And so I paid for it after the birth of my daughter. My body DID NOT bounce right back to my pre baby body. I felt ugly, fat, alone, self conscious and disgusted. I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror being naked. Everyday I would jump out of the shower and put baggy clothing on as fast as I could, so I didn’t have to look at myself in the mirror. 

One morning I woke up at 4am and decided I was going to take advantage of the time my daughter was asleep. So I ran downstairs and I started to workout. Everything felt sore. I could barely move, but I did what I could. And every morning, I sacrificed my sleep, so I could burn off all those burgers, fries and cookies. My goal was to look better after having a baby than I ever did before. I had never known what my abs looked like before getting pregnant. I wanted to prove to myself that I could finally have a six pack. There were many times that I felt very discouraged because it took forever for my soft, jelly like belly to tighten up. I thought about giving up many times, but I never did. The more my body changed, the more I wanted to prove to other women that it is possible to have the body you want after having a baby. It is possible to feel sexy and confident after having a baby. It requires A-LOT of blood, sweat and tears. It is never easy!!!

But now looking back, It was 1000000% worth it because I feel better than I’ve ever felt in my entire life. 👊🏼
