by Guest Collaborator September 14, 2018

This guest post was written by Emmy Thurman, a fun and upbeat mama to two littles currently residing in Kansas City Missouri. She shares her thoughts on learning to love yourself after having a baby. Have an idea to share on our blog? Please get in touch here.

Let me ask you, Did you hate that part of you before someone told you that you should?

I want to be a good role model for daughter & son, Lola & Luka. To show them that fitness and living healthy can be fun without having to restrict anything. I have no desired dress size or weight, as numbers—mean nothing. It’s all about how you feel. And I love my body as it is now. That includes every last inch. I love my stretch marks and my c-section scar, I have truly embraced my whole self and I’ve never been happier with the way my body looks. Everyone has their own ‘imperfections’ and there’s nothing imperfect about them, they are what makes us unique. They tell a story. Your worth is not measured by the size of your waist. This is postpartum & Y.O.U. are beautiful!

Shake what your baby gave you and have a beautiful day!—to all the strong mamas that are just trying to do their best!— Emmy Thurman, @emmy__liz
