Just the other day I was having a conversation with my ma about how I just don't seem to be loosing any real inches in the mid portion,regardless of how many crunches or sit ups I do.
And her reply was "But you've have two pregnancies! "
My reply was "I know so many others who have had as well" but their tummy is flatter than mine.
I have been really insecure about how I still look a 2-3 months pregnant even though I am not!(Thank God)
So I asked my sister-who by the way just had a baby 6 months ago, if her tummy has gone back, and she said it considerably has.
Made me think what I was doing wrong that my tummy isn't getting in flatter.
Today, for some reason I had a EUREKA moment-
No matter how much I complain about how my tummy looks rounder than it should, and how my hips have not gone in yet, I still know this for a fact that this same stomach has nurtured 3 beautiful (two at the same time) children.
Don't you agree?
For that --I need to give myself the credit,
no matter how much I whine about the weight I have gained in the twins pregnancy, a part of me is still proud of the fact, that when the doctor asked me to gain a certain amount of weight, I didn't once think about myself, and all that my goal was at that time was to have two healthy babies come into this world!
Even though I'd die for a tummy like Christina Vergara,
I will still give it up in an instant anytime for these three monkeys in my life!
For, it nurtured my kids, every stretch mark on my tummy tells a story, a story of how my beautiful body made room for three beautiful human beings.
How they made my body their home for 9 full months before coming to this world.
How a mother did not think of her body but was selfless enough for the babies growing inside her.
I need to keep reminding myself of this every time I have a 'poor body-image' moment
My body is PERFECT!!
