I have had a rough week when it comes to discussions with my clients. I keep hearing some very common themes…
“I want my pre-baby body back. I hate my new one.”
“Why can’t my body just go back to how it used to be?”
“My boobs are sagging from breast feeding and I feel like I’m not pretty anymore.”
“I hate my stretch marks.”
“I don’t feel attractive anymore and I don’t think my husband sees me as attractive anymore.”
Ladies! Let’s stop self-sabotaging ourselves and realize the fact that each and every one of you are beautiful. You are beautiful and most of you have brought LIFE into this world. What a miracle. That is something to be proud of. Not frustrated with the way you look, that doesn’t even make sense.
Your husband/spouse helped you create this miracle, so you should open up to them about how you are feeling and see how they react. I believe this process begins with you. Just like with anything, if you allow yourself, you will self sabotage everything you have.
If you let yourself, you will talk yourself into a negative self talk winding road with many thorns on the bush.
Please consider doing an exercise where you truly sit back, write out all the stories you tell yourself.
ALL of them. Including stories about : finances, appearance, weight, body image, intelligence, etc. You will be surprised what you come up with…
