I’m tired of looking in the mirror and hating everything about the person looking back at me. I’m tired of clothes not fitting but not wanting to buy new ones because they will be bigger than the ones I already have. I’m tired of wanting to hide my body from my husband, my kids, the camera. I’m tired. I’m sick of being tired.
I want to be present in my kids lives. I want to have the energy to play with them, jump on the trampoline with them, have enough confidence to out on a bathing suit and play in the water with them. I want to take pictures with them and not be ashamed of what I look like. I want to be proud of myself, of what I can do. I know I can be strong, I’ve done it before. I’m tired of making excuses.
