Hello world here I am!! All of me!! I wanted to share me, myself and all of me. I hardly ever have photos of myself on this blog since I was embarrassed with the extra 20 kg I was carrying well no more!! I am loud and proud. You know what I’m not as thin as I used to be, so what? I’m not as flat as I used to be. So what? My tummy has a mama pouch you know why? I’ve had two beautiful children and I wouldn’t change them for the world. It’s taken me a long time but I love myself. My love for myself is not pegged to my clothes size or the number on my scales. I love me the inner me that is in there regardless of what my outward self looks like. love_yourself_weight

It’s taken me a long time to say I am beautiful regardless of my size. It’s taken me a long time to be able to look in the mirror without being disgusted. So here I am world in all my 70kgs and exposed. So come on world love yourself whatever your size, whatever your weight, whatever your inner voice says. Just love yourself. Now I’m off to do some yoga because I love myself.

    You’re gorgeous hun! Love this post 😉 Hope I’ll be brave enough to take a pic like this one day.

      Aww thanks babe. I just knew you would be the first person to comment!! We took this photo last week but only was I brave enough to post it today and you know what I’m glad I did. I feel proud of myself and my body. We have been through so much together (my body and I) and it is a long road to loving my body but I feel so liberated for sharing this photo and telling the world I love myself! One day you too will feel proud of your beautiful self – as you should as you’re so amazing. I just finished reading the Gabriel method (www.thegabrielmethod.com) and this really has helped me realize that I do really love myself. You should read his book it is so inspiring. Have a wonderful day Mx

    Wow, so brave of you … and so terrible that we should think this is brave! I could never post a pic of myself. I am overweight but eat relatively healthy, regularly exercise and am reasonably fit. I am learning to love myself, warts and all, but it really is difficult when there is so much ‘positive’ press about thin women and so much negativity over a bit of a tummy (“lardos, heifers” spring to mind!).

    You’re an inspiration… thanks 🙂

      Thanks. I so agree with you it is very hard to love ourselves in this world when all we see is stink monsters around us in all their modeling “glory”. My path to self love has been a long slow painful one but from now on I will love myself regardless of what my outside looks like. I can only now post a photo of myself since Ive been eating so well and doing exercise and have so much energy and love to give. I hope you find your inner love too. Mx

    Wow, if only more women were like you myself included. We do need to be more proud of ourselves and yhe way we look. It is really hard to compare ourselves to others especially celebrities who take hours to look that “good”
    Very inspiring.
    Thank you

      Thanks so much for your kind words Tracie. I agree looking at all the “beauty” around us then looking in the mirror can be very hard to deal with. I believe my self love has come from a place of real food, exercise and being surrounded by love. I hope you get there too Mx

    You are a beautiful person in a beautiful body. I love that you are not stuck in the mass media’s idea of the so called perfect model. Poo on that. We are all beautiful. And the more so when our hearts are focused on the beautiful things in life the way you are. Anyway your beauty is just as stunning as any model you could name.

    Why must we constantly be presented with skinny, big eyed, fat lipped and super straight teeth and the “perfect” smile, all boringly the same images of what we are supposed to think of as beautiful? I see it as tedious emptiness. You present a true image of beauty and so do I and so does every woman, even the super models, because somewhere under all that make-up and dieting and strange lifestyle is a person trying to be real in the best way they can.. (Or also trying yo earn a living. )

    I am all in favour of your kind of attitude. You are a real teacher. You teach by example. LIke Kiwigal says, it is a shame we have to call what you have done brave.

    Yes, like they are saying, you are an inspiration. I love it.

      Aww thanks Pam as always your comments are so wonderful. I’ve missed you. You’re so right every woman is beautiful no matter what her size or shape. We are all strong amazing creatures the shine from within and should shout it from the roof tops!! Mx

    Hey beautiful woman you go girl! It took me a while to come to terms with my changed body after two babies also. But as you say our bodies changed and our lives changed so dramatically for the better in my opinion also I wouldn’t change anything and love my mumma pooch! xx

    1. April 22, 2014 at 10:58 pm

      Aww thanks doll. It can take a long time to re-accept ourselves after kids but you’re so right I wouldn’t change anything I just love them so much. Mx

    You look toned to me and that’s not surprising if you’re off to do yoga! It’s better to be as you are and a stable weight than to be a yo-yo dieter. So glad you’re happy and accepting. Good on you.

    1. April 22, 2014 at 11:40 pm

      Thanks I do some form of exercise most days especially yoga or pilates. I eat a vegetarian whole food diet and as a result I am losing weight but as you say that isn’t the point the point is I am happy with my body if I lose more weight or not. Mx
