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.
