@okqueenbee:  It’s so hard, especially after habing a baby, not to base your sense of self-worth on your body. I do it, too. But we need to remind ourselves that we are so much more than what we weigh or how tight our buns are, you know? So, definitely, no more excuses, but remember to try love yourself NOW, exactly as you are — just as you would love someone else exactly as they are.

@okqueenbee:  I had a baby 5 months ago so I totally get how hard it is to lose the weight.  I just recently started working out and trying to eat better, but I dont think I’m making any progress – at least not yet. I keep saying I want to be the best version of myself. Just cut yourself some slack – you made a human being! Love yourself for that

@okqueenbee:  My sister was a fitness competitor when she was pre-baby… Up until she found out she was having my precious little angel of a niece (hehe). She worked out and did yoga all the way up until the birth. Her baby is now almost 3 months old, and she still has that beautiful “I’m a new momma” body. Her uterus def hadn’t gone down all the way, and she hasn’t dropped much weight at all. Even for someone who was as fit as her, you can’t even tell how amazing her pre-baby body was unless you’d seen it before she concieved. She will eventually get her six pack back, sure, but it’s all part of the process. Everyone is different and four months is not very long, so don’t be too hard on yourself!
