The body he fell in love with was toned, it had muscles, there were no stretching marks on my belly , none on my boobs , no gut from muscle separation.

The body he fell in love with are appropriate for tight jeans, could walk into a store and grab different sizes and walk out, knowing it fit.

This body now couldnt shop at those stores, and largely wears leggings. His body stayed the same, but mine changed in every style. It isnt fair

I stood in front of him, depleted and broken, the tears welled in my eyes, this isnt the body you fell in love with. Then he said, youre right. It isnt the body I fell in love with.

Instead its a body that grew our children, it fed our children, it comforted our children, it stimulated life. Your body is the one I fall in love with every day

I didnt know what love was until I saw this body and found out all it could do, so thank you.

Do not be ashamed of what you have, or what your mum body looks like, theres plenty of time to give up cake in the future, for now, enjoy the moments you have, and enjoy the fact that you have made something that is worth every stretch mark and every dimple.

If you needed a reminder, this is it, this body you have now, its worth every bit of love and more.

Lauras terms of encouragement are a powerful reminder that the body we have IS worth caring And moreover, it is NOT infused with the kind of beauty that lasts.
