Love Your Love Handles

Today’s photo is a reminder to myself.  To love my love handles.  To appreciate my body, accept it as it is, and love it for all its imperfections.

I have struggled with body image my whole life.  I thought having a baby would make me go easier on myself.  It hasn’t.  It should.

Dear Emily: You are perfect, just the way you are.

Now go have another piece of that cake and enjoy 🙂

  1. Yes!! Have another piece of cake and celebrate what an amazing body you have!! It does take alot sometimes to accept how the body changes, and it’s easy to wish about being different. But what for?! Love your body, appreciate every mark to remind you of how awesome it is, and don’t deprive yourself of some yummy cake 🙂 Awesome pic! x

  2. You know I’m with you here. I’m struggling to love the curves and bumps but then I know my body’s been a good little incubator for the two kids and I should just enjoy it. I’m constantly fluctuating with how I feel about it. I think you are onto something here though. Big heart, lots of love, coming to peace and topping it off with a bit of cake…

  3. emmie! you are (always have been + always will be) gorgeous inside and out! but i totally get the body image struggle (it drives james mad!). the little heart tattoo i have on my hand is there to remind me of the difference between image sanity and emma image insanity and i really feel having something sort of concrete as a reminder helps a bit (not all the time though, wah). so print out this picture and put it on your fridge please!

    • Thank you Emmie! 🙂 That’s so cool about the tattoo. So true, we have to just keep reminding ourselves not to be so silly. Lucky we have sweet longsuffering boys to put up with our silliness.
