There is a lot of focus on being positive about the body you have, how strong you are to give birth to a healthy baby, etc. And I know that is the truth. However, it is also making me hyper critical of myself. It is not yet impacting me in a way that is causing me to adjust my food or exercise habits more, however, I am well aware of my intake and output.
I am back to my "normal" pre-baby self, and I was able to finally completely reach that following my finishing nursing. I think that it took that in order to get to the place where I actually was comfortably back in my pre-baby jeans.
With all of this focus on body image, and having a positive one, you would think it would be rubbing off on me. But in reality, can't we just take that focus away? Can't we just focus on being healthy?
