A mum has opened up about her appearance in a recent Instagram post. The mum posed with her child on the beach, but hesitated in posting it online as the rolls on her stomach made her feel uncomfortable.
"I didn’t post this photo while we were away because I hated how my stomach looked." she wrote.
"As much as I try to be self confident and be positive about my appearance, it’s not just a switch and one day you’re completely 110 percent okay with yourself."
"It’s a daily thing, and you have good and bad days… But you can’t stop, especially when you have little eyes watching you."
"You just need to keep reminding yourself everyday that you’re amazing no matter what anyone else or your own brain tries to trick you into thinking."
"This is a beautiful moment between my daughter and I, a memory I want to treasure forever and nothing can ruin that."
Since posting the photo she has had an outpouring of support from others, many praising her bravery for sharing the pic.
