and it really resonated with me. Just thought I'd share it with you guys. I would paste it here, but it's kind of lengthy.

    Good article. I wish I could just wisen up and accept things the way they are, but I've had issues with my body this entire pregnancy and don't see that changing postpartum. You can understand what's happening, realize what's logical and what isn't, but still not be able to fully accept it.

    So true.
    I'm 37, just had my third child and I'm still crying over the bathroom scale. :cry:
    Did you do it for love? Did you do it for money? Did you do it for spite? Did you think you had to, honey?

    Bailey, I started therapy for long standing eating/body image issues because they intensified during pregnancy. I was afraid that I may resort to unhealthy ways of coping while I was pregnant - something I have done in the past.
    It was the single most helpful thing I've ever done in my life.
