And of course, there is nothing wrong with being whatever size I am or whatever size anyone else is. Why do I have so much trouble when viewing myself when I could care less about whatever shape or size someone else is? I think all women, no matter shape, size, color, hair color, etc. are beautiful. Everything we go through makes us beautiful. If you are bigger, you are bigger. If you are smaller, you are smaller. I have always felt that if you are unhappy with yourself, you work on it and try your best. If you are doing that, accept yourself. Everyone is different and I have always embraced that and loved that about everyone...except myself. Why? I suppose for lots of reasons. But with pregnancy, I definetly need to get over it!
So with time, I have realized that it is out of my hands. No, I am not going to use pregnancy as an excuse to pig out as much as I want. I am still trying to be sensible. But, it really is out of my control how my body is going to grow babies. If I am going to gain weight everywhere, why go around feeling terrible about myself every time I look in the mirror? Is that honestly going to help me at all?
