  1. I used to. I still try to work on my body, but more for being healthy. My husband has reminded me time and time again that I am good looking to him. Since I am not trying to impress anyone else, that’s good enough for me. It took a long time to get over the feelings of “ugliness” my dad put on me because I was not thin enough, smart enough, etc. I don’t worry about that any more. God loves me and my husband loves me just the way I am.

  2. I’m usually ok with my post pregnancy body, until I go bra shopping. I can’t count the number of times I’ve spent crying in a dressing room surrounded by bras that don’t fit. They just don’t make bras to fit women like me.

    1. Maybe you have done this already but, we went to Macy’s & they actually are very helpful in getting a true fit. They can be spendy but, well worth it. (my girls are build quite different than me and this was an issue for us as well.)

  3. Oh, Amen! As I carry our seventh child, I’ve struggled with the image of the woman who stares back at me in the mirror, and yet my husband is happy and content. God isn’t concerned with my outward appearance. Thankful.

  4. Thank you for this blog!! Its just what I needed today. Ive gained about 10 lbs since ive quite nursing and none of my jeans have been really fitting lately. Ive felt kind of down about it and felt like I need to get this weight off of me. This blog made me realize that im focusing on my weight a little to much lately and ive been focusing less on the woman/wife/mother God made me to be. Some of the most beautiful (inside and out) women I know are not size 2. The society we live in truly does distract us from being the women God created us to be. In this world We are made to feel like less of a women just because we do not meet up to the “perfect body” standards of this world. I really worry for my little girls in this superficial society they are growing up in.

  5. I have had a Breast Lift & Augmentation, Tummy Tuck & Liposuction, n I dont regret. And I would do it again…. I did it for me not for him…

  6. I just had this conversation with my husband. More about accepting compliments from him. He made a great point. When I don’t accept his compliment and return it with a put down, I actually make myself less appealing to him. He said it’s like getting excited to eat your favorite meal, only to have the chef tell you the chicken was overcooked and the rest of the ingredients were sub par. You’ll still eat it but it just doesn’t taste as good as you thought it would. On the other hand if the chef talks up the dish, it tastes even better than he expected!
    I need to remind myself that my husband is excited over my body (even difficult to type. Lol) and that I’m lucky he doesn’t see what I do. Receiving his compliment, let’s him enjoy his dish! 😉
