Down To Business
I would encourage anyone with slight body issues to photograph themselves more often. Day after day of editing photos of myself and I've noticed that 97% of the time I'm a perfectly fine-looking person. (ed: as in normal fine, not fiiiiine.) Not a supermodel, but not the collection of parts that need fixing that I can reduce myself to when in front of the mirror.
I recently discovered that I have diastasis recti after baby #2. Yes, it took me 18 months to get past the squicky feelings and check for it yesterday. I had noticed that my stomach, no matter how strong my abs were getting, had kind of a domed appearance from the side. I'm worried about preventing further injury during workouts and I'll admit I'm a little sad that I won't have the body I once did. But scrolling through photos prevents me from wallowing too much in self-pity. I can't hardly see it in pictures. The huge pooch is mostly in my head.
I think it's weird, I would have thought that this little hobby of mine would amplify flaws. That I would sit and pick myself apart but that hasn't been the case. At least not as far as my body goes. . .
