I am not happy with the way I look. I gave birth last year and still struggling with extra weight, my belly loose and my breast saggy. I am planning to have a mommy makeover. Anyone has any experience???
I have never have professional help so I can't really diagnose myself but the more I read about bdd the more I felt relieved in a way, that there was a term to describe whatever the heck I am going through..
constantly checking myself in the mirror, constantly comparing myself to others. skipping meals though I am extremely hungry, excessively exercising and a lot more that i don't wanna share.
I am 5'2 and am around 53 kg..my thighs aren't as thin as others or stomach isn't as flat. I won't eat anything for the whole day and I'll look fine but if I eat one small thing in the evening my stomach will be bloated and that would be the only thing running in my mind..
this has turned into a rant so I'll stop now. there's so much more I wanna say but don't know how to.
Negative body image can have a strong impact on a person's well-being. It can affect a person's social life, self-confidence, and mood. In severe cases, a negative body image can lead to eating disorders or body dysmorphia. When poor body image leads to mental health issues, treatment is often necessary.
Some things to remember:
✨Our reproductive organs NEED fat to protect them. That lower belly pouch you have is for that reason and it’s probably why as you develop and grow as a woman, you notice more lower stomach fat appearing! Your body is doing that for a reason🙌🏼
✨The location of where your body tends to store fat is predetermined by your GENES. Maybe you genetically store more fat on your stomach? Maybe you don’t? That’s something you simply CAN’T control.
✨Despite what some marketing claims and Google searches say, having a bit of stomach fat isn’t “unhealthy” or risking your health.
✨Abs aren’t all that great. To be at such a low body fat percentage to see 4/6 pack abs is hard and it’s also not sustainable for everyone. Remember that when you’re considering your long term goals and health.
✨Your 16 year old body IS going to look different than your 20s 30s 40s….. body! and that’s okay❤️ I had the most defined abs when I was 16, then again in my eating disorder years when I was 21, now I’m 24 and at a healthy weight and guess what, I don’t see any abs and that doesn’t bother me!!
I hope this helps remind you that your stomach fat isn’t anything to be ashamed of!🥰
