“Love your mom bod!” they declare.
“Embrace ALL of you!” they shout.
“Own your imperfections!” they command.
“Be you!” they exclaim.
And then you read the very fine print which says that mom bods are on trend and #momlifebelike, but if, and only if:
1) You are willing to document your body transformation (or lack thereof) and personal confidence that reigns regardless,
2) You are rocking at body (and self) acceptance and are aiming to inspire other women to do the same.
3) You are dominating an exercise and self-care routine like a boss.
4) Your kids are still young, so you can use them as an excuse for the missing six-pack and the one you drank (whoops) — beer belly, baby belly, mom belly, who the heck cares. It’s. All. The. Same.
Here’s the TRUTH about the mom bod:
It looks different on everyone.
For me, seven years ago, mom bod looked like 206lbs.
