Two posts in one day. Really, who I am?
I am so excited to share this post with you, I couldn’t wait. I am even staying up a few minutes late, I know I am going to regret it when my babies wake up soon, but I will survive.
I seriously could cry. When I found out I was pregnant with twins I never in a million years thought I would be anywhere close to having my body back. I still have a ways to go, but at least I am on my way. After I found out I was pregnant with twins I googled twin skin, body after twins, stretch marks, etc. I thought there was going to be no hope for me to want to show my belly ever again. I thought I would be giving up my bikinis for good. I thought my body was wrecked; no joke. I guess I was wrong.
I am here to tell you it is possible. Yes, it takes dedication and hard work (5am workouts), but I feel great. So, if you are pregnant (with or without twins) know it is possible to feel good in your own body again. Yes, I still have many moments where I bash my body, get mad at myself for not working harder and having negative body image thoughts. But, then I take a step back and think to myself that I carried and gave birth to four beautiful little girls (including a set of twins). I tell myself how wonderful my body is for giving life to our daughters. My body has done much more than I could have been imagined.
Yes, my belly is not perfect and may never be, but I am okay with that or at least that is what I tell myself. Loving my body is always a work in progress. But, I have come a long way from my high school and college days.
I want you to know it is possible as long as you are consistent. Know that you are worth it!!
