Yup thats right, i'm starting this week off with a bit of a ramble for you all.
Hubby took these photos last night for me and i yo yo'd back and fourth as to whether or not to post them. Don't get me wrong the outfit in itself is nice enough, but some demons keep creeping in and whispering in my ear "Flying somewhere today Rachel??!!" Yup thats right, i have major Bingo Wings issues.
I've mentioned before that, after i had Neo my WHOLE body changed. I carry weight in different places and find it hard to loose yet very easy to gain (and honestly, most of the time can't be arsed!) Through the winter i can hide my hang up's behind cosy knits and lots of layers. But, come summer, my insecurities have no place to go but out in the open. I'm not gunna lie, this post very nearly didnt make it. I just kept focusing in on the those flabby arms.
But Heck, i cant hide all summer right? I'm a lady, we all are here, and as much as i cant perhaps embrace those arms, i should at least stop stressing about it.
Anyone with me?? (not so much on the bingo wings, but more the lets just be who we are!)
Yes i wear spanx occasionally, yes i have a mum tum, and no i wont ever be wafer skinny again. But, i'm happy, i'm healthy and therefore should focus on that.
I've never thought of myself as a "fashion" blogger, I've never classed myself as fashionable. It's more of a personal style blog with tidbits from day to day life. I need to stop comparing myself to others and complaining to myself. I hope to find time to work out in future, but real life at the moment is hectic.
Acceptance of myself is the best way forward.
Belt & Shoes: Peacocks
Kate Spade bag: EBay £14!
And if you weren't looking at these arms before, i'm sure you will be after that rant!! :)
So tell me, do you have insecurities or are you happy with who you are?
