Instagram Musings: Scars

This weekend has been a big one for teaching my daughter to be body positive. She’s been noticing differences from person to person lately. It all started with the question, “Mommy, when will your tummy go back down like mine is now that the baby is out?” I’m so glad I’m now in a place…

Reactions: Hello Binging My Old Friend

Recently I posted my latest article on the subject of binge eating across multiple Facebook groups. The responses I got were very interesting and informative. I wanted to share them with you in the hopes that it may help you on your path: “I stress eat and as most days I’m stressed out, I’m reaching…

Instagram Musings: VBO

VBO- that stands for Visible Belly Outline. I’ve never been a fan of VBO on myself. I have no problem with others working it but for me, I did everything in my power to find just the right clothes that would hide it. Being a plus size woman with a total mama belly meant finding…

Instagram Musings: Postpartum Belly

“Mommy, why is your tummy still big after the baby came out?” A few years ago I would have crumbled at this question but I’m in a much different place now. The stomach I used to hate is now a badge of honor. It has given me the gift of two healthy and beautiful children….

Whose Thoughts Are You Thinking?

About a week ago I won an award in my industry. It was really exciting, especially since I didn’t expect to win it. It was my first night out since having the baby so I wanted to glam out whether I won or not. I had fun doing something different with my hair, popping on…

One Hard Pregnancy

Photo by Daniel Grove Photography Yeah, it’s been a while but I’m back! I was so blessed to be given the gift of a son on March 5th and boy was I ready to meet him! Compared to my last pregnancy roughly four years ago with my daughter, this one has been hard! I think…

Sticks and Stones

There has been something weighing on my mind this Christmas season and it all starts in the office. I work with some really incredible ladies. They are beautiful, strong and intelligent and I’m blessed to know each and every one of them. I want to preface this post by saying this is not to be…

Chubby Has Entered The Building

Well it happened. I knew it would one day but I didn’t expect so soon. I’ve worked hard on keeping our home body positive but the truth is that the real world is out there and my daughter would learn other points of views whether I liked it or not. This morning she mentioned that…
