Comparing apples to oranges!

Of course the media affects my body image. Looking at Hollywood and all those size 2 new moms can be daunting. However, I know logically that these women work very hard for those amazing bodies. It’s their job to be fit which means they have to dedicate many hours a day to exercising and eating right. My brain understands this… but not the rest of me. I look at the tabloid magazines and sometimes feel not good enough which is absolutely horrible. I’ve made babies. I have war wounds… literally. I shouldn’t be ashamed of the changes my body had to go through to create life. I know this. But to accept it is another thing, right? I’m hoping with age comes wisdom. Maybe in 10 years I will stop caring. A girl can dream, right?
