See how crusty my face looks on the left? It’s because I’m sucking in my gut.
See how happy I am on the right? It’s because I’m letting my lil paunch hang out…ALL OUT.
Listen. The flat tummy midriff days are not in my future and I am quite alright with that, wanna know why?
Cuz this 43yr old body has given birth to 3 children which has resulted in extra skin AND I do my best to have a healthy lifestyle.
When I wake in the morning, my tummy appears flat but as the day progresses, no matter what I eat, that paunch expands.
Hormones affect it, stress affects it, the food I consume affects it – it’s constant work and for what? Optics? Appearances? Approval? From who?
I am still loved regardless of my “food baby” or “gas baby” cuz at the end of the day I’m still ME – crazy, energetic, positive vibe-havin NATALIE.
You BETTA recognize! LOL (ok that was a bit much but you’re picking up what I’m putting down right?) Anyhoo – do you, be you, love you, cuz there’s no other you…ok?
