A Letter to my Post Pregnant Body

Dear Post Pregnant Body,

Go buy those non-maternity clothes that fit your new body. Stop squeezing into clothes that only remind you of what you looked like before you carried that beautiful baby. Stop putting on maternity clothes because you are no longer pregnant and your body right now is just as beautiful as it was before. It deserves to be dressed with regular clothes. Yes, they will be 1 or 2 or more sizes bigger, but they’ll fit you properly. It’ll allow you to genuinely embrace and accept where you are right now. No, it doesn’t mean you won’t work to lose the rest of the weight or that you’re settling or growing comfortable. It means you’re learning to be being patient with and loving your body all the while living your current season in life. Remember that humans look at outward appearances but the Lord looks on the heart (1 Samuel 16:7) and that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Pslam 139:14)!
