I don't know what it is, but lately I just feel SO GOOD about myself. I feel sexy and pretty and things I've never felt in my life. It helps having a super supportive SO, but I really think overcoming the emotional struggles of the past two years and finally working to better myself have finally started to affect my perception. Also, I just feel so feminine and womanly. I'm in my third trimester and bigger than I've EVER been but I just feel so... AWESOME. :D
This is a photo of me around the same time last year, maybe a little later. Before I cut my hair:
And this is me now. I know the picture is staged and kind of silly, but I was playing around and ended up actually liking the pose. Haha. I feel like it's the best picture of me that I've ever taken:
So yeah, I'm pushing 200lbs and I'll officially have a TWO baby body after the next few months pass...but I'm happy. For the first time, I'm happy. I could lose weight, and I'll just get even happier, but man I could actually LIVE with this for once.
Sorry. Just wanted to share!
Awwe that's wonderful!! Especially since what you were talking about earlier :)
I also loved my preg body. Some people feel gross and fat but I felt beautiful and sexy.
I'm glad you feel beautiful this pregnancy!
With my second which was a girl... I felt UGLY but maybe the wivestale is true then... ugly during pregnancy = girl lol jk jk
But I am very happy to hear pregnant women see how beautiful they are!

This one is totally a boy! Hahaha. :D Maybe that's all I needed.
Awesome for you. I hope the feeling stays. :D
I'm really happy for you and you're beautiful! I was happier with myself during my pregnancy and after having DD than I ever was before.
That's so good :) I wish I felt like that. I felt so ugly and gross while pregnant lol I had a baby girl
I always feel strangely sexual and attractive during pregnancy. You go, girl! Rock it, baby! :D

Yes it is! I suffer from some pretty bad body dysmorphia myself. I feel your pain dear <3
