Inspiring FitMom Katrina: Fitter, Stronger and Healthier… Shimmer Stripes and All!

Beautiful story by Katrina about body positivity, self-love, and being an inspiration to those who matter the most:

“I’ve been working my butt off to become healthier and fitter. For myself and for my kids. But let’s be real for a minute. My body isn’t the same as it was 12 years ago. And it won’t ever be. I have separated stomach muscles, I have these wonderful shimmering stripes on my stomach otherwise known as “stretch marks.” πŸ™„ I don’t know about you, but I much prefer shimmer stripes. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ My kids asked me about them. “What are those stripes? What are they from?” I strongly believe there is power in our words. Especially the words we choose to use in front of our children. So I told them “when I got to grow you in my tummy, these pretty, sparkling lines appeared. How cool is that? Aren’t they pretty??” And they all agreed. My eldest son even asked if he’d get any sparkly bits on his tummy. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ Society has this habit of making us feel bad about things that naturally happen to our bodies as we get older or as life happens. But I’m changing that perception, starting with my kids. πŸ’• how about you? 😘 I’ll be fitter, stronger and healthier but I’ll also be uniquely and wonderfully me. Shimmer stripes and all.”
