The truth is, I am trying my best to be more confident. 
The truth is, I am not there yet. (where ever there is)
The truth is, I don't want to post pictures of myself because I don't like the new momma body I have.
The truth is, I am embarrassed to admit those feelings out loud.
The truth is, no matter what anyone says it's the my own voice that speaks loud enough to make me feel bad about my looks.
The truth is, looks don't matter.
The truth is, how I look matters to me!
Help, I'm playing the worlds smallest violin. Excuse my totally pointless pity party.

  1. After I had my first son, I was DISGUSTED by myself. It didn't matter how many people told me I looked great or lost the weight fast, I just felt gross. I hated having my picture taken (even when I was pregnant, I felt so huge) Funny thing though, once I got in shape and looked back at pictures, I wasn't nearly as huge as I felt. With my 2nd son, I kinda knew what to expect but it has still been hard. Especially during the winter in Utah and being pasty white... Point is, you are not alone, it's not nearly as bad as you feel and it gets better :)

  2. I am currently 7 months pregnant with my first. I avoid looking in the mirror sometimes because my body is so unrecognizable. I don't mind my tummy, but it's all the other little changes that are driving me nuts. I started out as a size 0/1 so all of this is hard for me. I am determined that after I have my little one I'm gonna get into a better place, emotionally and physically.

    P.S. Thanks for sharing and being honest, I feel better knowing someone else understands how I feel.

    P.P.S. Do a post on dressing DC! I'm having a boy and struggling with clothing options and your little man is always so stylish!

  3. at first I read this as yolo cookies! haha you have to yolo the roll cookies though because they are so.dang.good!

    ps. I have those same feelings. I love reading all these empowering things about mothers and our bodies, but it does take serious adjusting time. that and i can't seem to give up chocolate...

  4. Wow it is so crazy that I'm reading your blog for the first time and it's like we are the same person! My son is 6 months old and we have had a teething week from hell. All the while my son gets a virus and an extremely high fever that we have to fight on top of the teething nightmare. And selfishly through it all I've been so upset because all of my time, 24/7, has been spent caring for him and my other 2 daughters, my husband, and NOT myself. I've been surviving off of caffeine, sugar and empty carbs and have felt so disgusted with myself. I keep thinking "he is 6 months already. That is plenty of time to have gotten your body back. You are just lazy and not dedicated enough. There are no excuses." And you're right. Looks don't matter. But MINE matter to me. And no matter what anyone tells me I am disgusted when I look in the mirror. It's a tough battle and only those in it truly understand. My husband gets so mad at me when I talk to him about it. Nice to know someone else is in the exact same boat as me. Even though I don't wish it on anyone!
