Mother-of-two and blogger behind The Mum On The Run, Laura Mazza has shared a heartwarming story about her post-baby body and her husband's reaction when she questioned her weight gain.
Laura says she had tears in her eyes as she said to her partner: "This isn't the body you fell in love with."
She goes on to explain: "The body he fell in love with was toned, it had muscles, there were no stretch marks on my belly, none on my boobs, no gut from muscle separation."
"The body he fell in love with fit into tight jeans, could walk into a shop and grab any size and walk out, knowing it fit."
"The body now couldn't shop at those stores, and mostly wears leggings. His body stayed the same, but mine changed in every way."
Her husband's reaction was: "You're right. It isn't the body I fell in love with."
"Instead it's a body that grew our children, it fed our children, it comforted our children, it made life. Your body is the one I fall in love with every day."
"I didn't know what love was until I saw this body and found out all it could do, so thank you."
Laura then goes on to tell fellow mums to remember what their incredible bodies have achieved, writing: "Enjoy the fact that you have made something that is worth every stretch mark and every dimple."
"If you needed a reminder, this is it, this body you have now, its worth every bit of love and more."
In a previous post on her Facebook, Laura shared a before and after photo of her changed physique.
In a long message, she wrote about how she used to be so obsessed with her weight that she would literally dream about it. She was "miserable" and used to weigh herself every day.
She writes that it wasn't until her son was waiting behind her to stand on the scales that she realised she wanted to change.
"He deserves love. He deserves never to think that his weight defines if he's a good enough person."
