We had to share this because this mom is rockin’ her bikini and what we love even more is what she says about it.
Rachel Hollis, a 32 mother of three, shared a photo of herself at the beach on her instagram feed. She looks confident and radiant and what she said about the pic was truly inspirational:
“I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy… (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man who’s opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he’s never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren’t scars ladies, they’re stripes and you’ve earned them. Flaunt that body with pride!”
This pic has garnered over 10 million views and 380K Facebook likes.
“[My body is] never ever going to be like a Victoria’s Secret model,” she told TODAY “but I think I look good, and my husband wants to make out with me, so I’m doing something right.”
Wow – I really love this woman.
