Iedereen ziet ze weleens voorbijkomen: die verbazingwekkende voor-en-na foto’s van vrouwen die hun nieuwe afgetrainde lichaam willen showen. Maar wat gebeurt er nu echt met je lichaam als je extreem gaat afvallen? Deze vrouwen tonen wat er verscholen zit onder die strak afgelijnde fitnessoutfits.
Wat normaal verborgen blijft
Als je in korte tijd veel bent afgevallen of moet herstellen van een zwangerschap, kun je achterblijven met een slappe huid. Je huid heeft dan niet genoeg tijd gehad om zich aan te passen aan je slankere lichaamsvorm. Een vervelend probleem, maar wel volstrekt normaal. Kijk maar naar deze vrouwen!
"But what if I have loose skin?" 🙈 Please do not let the fear of loose skin, stretch marks, cellulite, or anything else, stop you from reaching your goals. What if you have loose skin? Girl, what if you uncover an amazing warrior who is the strongest mentally, physically, and emotionally that she has ever been? Are you going to let some jiggle stop you? Don't you dare. Don't you dare hold your potential hostage because you're worried what someone might say or think. ☝🏼 Newsflash! Everyone has something on their body that they consider an imperfection! 😱 Everyone has insecurities! But guess what? You have the power to overcome those issues. You have the power to be more than your worries or anxiety. 💜 So, I'm here sharing my 4 month postpartum belly from my third baby girl and 2nd c-section, in the hopes that maybe you can begin to realize you are MORE. You are MORE than ENOUGH. Right now. Just as you are. So start believing in yourself and loving that body enough to be happy and healthy. ✌🏼
Hellllooooo hot Texas summer!! I have been drinking TONS of water and doing my best not to overheat. We have made it to 22 weeks today and Blobby is growing fast and kicking hard. Very hard. My round ligament pain has pretty much discouraged me to move in any sort of way. It's sucks and it hurts and all the exercises in the world isn't making it go away. I just have to be patient and remember to move slowly which for me is really, really hard. The pain is a real fast reminder though. 😣 Take good care of yourself today even if that means slowing down or taking a break or taking inventory on what YOU need and giving it to yourself. Whether it's a glass of water, snack, nap, a good cry, or a good laugh. Your body is constantly sending you messages and we're often so busy that we don't receive them but they're incredibly important. #selfcare #wednesdaywisdom #22weeks #bellyblob #stretchmarks #scars #looseskin
This feels scary to post, but, this is my mom bod and I refuse to pretend I don't have loose skin and stretch marks. Sure, you can't see my loose skin when I post mirror selfies, but it doesn't mean I don't have it. Loose skin, stretch marks, cellulite… and I still love my body ❤️ My body was the home of my two beautiful boys 👦🏼👶🏼 My body birthed a baby naturally (not by choice 😂) My body has lost 75 pounds and a total of 60 pounds of baby weight 🏃🏼♀️ My body can do some crazy workouts 💪🏻 My body is the ONLY one I will ever have, so I choose to love and respect it…and I choose to own it rather than be embarrassed of it. No matter where you are in your journey, learn to LOVE your body and just OWN it! You aren't the only one with tiger stripes and battle scars! Loose skin, cellulite and stretch marks will never hold me back from loving the skin I'm in ❤️ Rock your mom bod, mama!
The anxiety posting this is REAL. Taken a few minutes apart, flexing in the first. "How did you avoid loose skin and stretch marks?" Heyyyyy, I didn't! Its all there. High waisted bottoms have become my bff. Do I regret losing weight? Hellllll noooooo. NEVER. Not even a slightest thought. I am more FIT than I've ever been in my entire life. Happier. HEALTHIER. I'd be lying if I said my loose skin wasn't an insecurity of mine.. But I refuse to let it consume me. It doesn't hold me back like the weight used to. This stomach has grown two beautiful boys.. Has been through a 90lb+ gain and loss (100lb+ lost from my highest weight while pregnant!) Will you have loose skin after losing weight? I can't answer that for you, everyBODY is different. Will it be worth it, regardless? YES. Also for those who have asked.. I do plan to have surgery some day, but in the mean time I'm just working on self loooovvveeee. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ BE KINDDDD, I delete negativity 🤗 (No itworks, creams, lotions, yada yada) #nofilter #stretchmarks
