What bothers me is the fact that women want to just tear her apart instead of being happy for her. That woman has had three healthy, beautiful children and she cares enough about them to take care of herself. She deserves to look great after three long pregnancies!
When did becoming a mother mean that you had to sacrifice your body and health?
You want to know why I have the right to discuss this?
I've actually lived both sides of this situation.
I know exactly what it's like to stop caring for my body after having a child. I know what it's like to be severely obese and devote one hundred percent of my time to caring for that child. Been there, done that, and realized it wasn't the way for my family to live.
I took control of my health. I know exactly how my healthy lifestyle influences my family. My husband eats better now. He works out with me. And we do it all before that sweet little boy of ours even wakes up. So how exactly are we wrong???
Oh, that's right... We aren't.
I work full time outside of the home. There are some days that just absolutely wear me out, but I make time to take care of me.
Want to know how our healthier lifestyle affects our child?
He's more active. He eats better. He is happier!
Because his mother cared enough about him to take care of herself and her entire family. Because my husband and child are worth it. I take care of myself so that, God willing, I can be here for him as long as possible. I am not shorting my life by wrecking my body.
All of this controversy boils down to pure jealousy. That mother is simply taking care of herself while raising three young boys. She worked hard for something she believed in and she looks fantastic!
If she can do it, anyone can. How is that shaming? It's simply stating a fact. If she can make the time, there are no excuses for the average mother.
