So I came across this today, and I loved it!
My personal thoughts after reading?
Yes, motherhood changes who you are. It should! I hope that it leads me to be an even better version of myself, though. A much healthier version with a better outlook on life and more optimism, if I’m being honest.
Realistically, am I going to look like I did in high school or college, even if I met all my fitness and weight loss goals? NO! Absolutely not… That doesn’t mean I won’t look better.
I’m almost 21 days into my 21 day challenge. I know I’m not done yet… It’s a lifestyle commitment, and I’m not really sacrificing anything. I’m gaining POSSIBILITIES!
I hope my journey enables me to look in the mirror and have a stronger sense of pride. I know I’m working harder than I ever have to meet my goals, and I’m doing it for all the right reasons. Someday, I may even show my pale, white stomach with pride… Scars and all! There are a ton of them from surgery for fertility issues, gall bladder removal, BABY REMOVAL… LOL! They are a badge of honor… They show I survived, and I plan to thrive!
