I questioned whether or not I really wanted to write this post after being encouraged to do so by a few friends. Having celebrated Thomas’s first birthday two months ago, I’ve been thinking a lot about the crazy changes a woman’s body endures from pre-pregnancy to the pre-natal journey to the aftermath. Our bodies definitely get thrown for a loop, no matter how fit or healthy we are.
This isn’t a long post, but an important one.
An acquaintance of mine recently posted a status update on social media: “I got up this morning, looked in the mirror, and truly hated what I saw looking back at me.” This is a hard working, dedicated, intelligent, physically fit, beautiful person who is referring to the fact that she hates the signs of ageing she sees and the associated changes to her outward appearance.
