How to use Affirmations to Love your new Mom-bod

Last week I posted a picture on Instagram that I absolutely loved. It wasn’t about the setting of the picture. It wasn’t because the picture fit my aesthetic perfectly. Nor was it because of the likes I got. I loved this picture because it was one of the rare times I posted a picture and loved ME. All of me; large breasts, wide hips mom bags and all. 


As I said in my heartfelt caption, becoming a new mom takes a toll on you. Not just physically but emotionally too. Not only are you given this new baby to love, but you're given this new body to love too! And just like the new baby, it’s comes with no training or instructions. 

After posting that picture I had so many moms reach out to me via comments/ DM and tell me how they felt the same way! They say motherhood is different for each woman but I’m pretty sure we’re all experiencing quite a few of the same symptoms. And that’s why it is so important as moms to love ourselves inward and outwardly. You never know who could use your words of encouragement. 




Getting to a point of loving my body took time. It wasn’t something that happened overnight or with a few mood changes. It was more than the threads on my skin or color of my hair. It was about me feeling the beauty on the inside and letting it show on the outside. Here are some self affirmations I used to fall back in love with me: 

  • My skin is flawless
  • My curves are amazing
  • My triple D cups nourish my child
  • My hair is long and healthy
  • My body has the ability to create life
  • My body is healthy
  • My body is strong
  • My body is a warrior 
  • I am beautiful

Now I know some people are a bit skeptical about affirmations. Hi mom! But they are something I‘ve learned about since having Tate and I am loving them. It’s not a mantra or chant, but hey maybe for you it is! I don’t shout them to myself in the mirror, but trust me I do give the mirror an occasional wink. I use my mantras more of a self- calming technique. Anytime I feel myself thinking negative thoughts (omg your butt it huge), I quickly change it to positive (hey, nice ass). Now I’m not saying lie to yourself, just flip it so you see the glass as half full and not half empty. 





It may not seem like much at first, and it may feel down right silly, but try it and see how you feel! It can’t be worse than believing the negative thoughts about yourself. So what are some affirmations you plan on starting today? Read through my nine above and drop me your tenth in the comments below!

See ya!
