Kind of afraid

I've been putting off the trying on of my Wonder Woman costume. I think I have gained some weight from last year so I'm afraid that it won't fit and I will feel crappy. It's funny how I can be the same weight I've been for a number of years pre-kids, yet clothes so do not fit the same way. And instead of embracing the body that I have now been blessed with, I put myself down. When will I stop that? Perhaps it will take days, months or years, who knows. I do know that I try to overcome these feelings everyday. Some days I feel great and others blah and wish I didn't have a road map on my stomach and what seems to be enough skin to make a tummy pull down blind. Oh and comparing myself to others. Oh the torture. As I write this I can see how ridiculous this sounds. Men must think us women are crazy.

Note to self: We're on the road to self uplifting not self putting down.

So maybe now I'll go try it on. Wish me luck!

i feel your pain.... oh, and the tummy pull down blind??? that got a good belly laugh! i too have a road map.... and i don't love mine, either. but, what can we do??? i'm glad your costume fits though... that's good for the self esteem. and yes, men definitely think we're crazy....

I feel the exact same way as you do, and by the sounds of things my tummy is in the same shape. It's frustrating sometimes.

Oh hunny! You are gorgeous! But I totally hear ya and I've only had one baby thus far! I've just stopped bfing Zachary though so my metabolism has taken a huge nose dive and I really need to be careful what I eat now! Oh the misery of it all! Why is it so hard to be happy with how we look, regardless of how we look?!?!
