It’s not about “bouncing back” to my pre-baby size/weight. It’s more about getting to know and falling in love with this new body. A body that carried another human life. A body that now knows it’s magical powers. This body didn’t exist this time last year. It’s impossible and foolish to want to “bounce back” to her. It’s almost like trying to be a virgin again: impossible.
This isn’t to say I don’t have goals, or that I’m complacent. I’m simply disappearing the illusion that the grass was greener whilst standing in the power of the life-bearing work this body has done.
