I saw this post on Mary Lambert's Instagram last night and could SO relate. My belly is the death of me. Always has been. So whenever I see a woman embrace her belly, show it in pictures, or just be KIND to herself....I'm in awe. I'm in awe because I wish I could be that kind to myself. I'm working on it....but damn it's hard!
She said, "Three years ago, if you would have told me that I wouldn't feel any panic to post a photo like this, and really truly mean that I love my stomach, I wouldn't have believed you. I didn't know that this kind of radical self love was possible. I didn't know I deserved to feel joy, all the time. I didn't know what liberation from diet culture actually felt like."
WOW. Read her full post, below.
