The body

The lesson I learned…

Hate your body.

This was a fairly new lesson.

I don’t remember hating my body in high school. Or college. Or post-college.

My weight fluctuated throughout those years, and I did go on and off diets, but I didn’t hate my body.

I was just fine after my first child. My body mostly returned to my pre-baby body.

Then I had my second child. And my body changed and the weight didn’t come off like it did the first time.

My size crept up, more and more.

I was ok with it for a little while because I had just had a baby.
