Because I love my new belly

March 31, 2009 at 8:10 pm (Daily Life) (, )

Two months or so ago, I stumbled across The Belly Project.  I visit it weekly (along with PostSecret!), and it’s such a beautiful, reaffirming, and positive website.  Women often have self-esteem issues, and particularly after a pregnancy, we can end up with funky bellies that make us feel negatively.  The Belly Project is trying to fix that — and show that many women don’t have “perfect” stomaches; some have stretch marks, extra chub, scars, or have lost tone in other ways.  I always feel more positive about myself after going there, even though I don’t comment on the pictures; it’s comforting to know that we are all unique and none of us are perfect.
