Maria Kang branded as Fitmom, posted on Dec. 2, 2013 to her Facebook account about the amazing selfie photo Caroline Berg Eriksen posted. She posted her picture a week after the birth of one of her children and put it next to the selfie from Caroline to compare.
Her message was clear. All women are different. Some women take 9 months to lose baby weight, while others like Caroline lose the weight in hours or days of delivering. Another important point she made is life changes so much when you have a baby. What was once important to you, may not be vital to you any longer. Before children, your life may have been easy going and you may have been able to work out two hours a day. Giving birth brings a whole new set of challenges. You are a new mom. You will be tired from lack of sleep and a decrease in hormones. Add to that, you are responsible for a baby, meeting each other their needs.
The bottom line: If you are like most moms and do not look like Maria Kang or Caroline Berg Eriksen that is okay, too. Women come in all shapes and sizes, and as long as you are healthy, that’s all that matters.
