If you had asked me to post a blog featuring full on pictures of me in a bikini three years ago (pre-baby) I would have shuddered at the thought. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have been confident enough to do it EVEN THOUGH my body was probably "better" then. I had a slimmer waist, perkier boobs and less cellulite but I lacked the most important thing of all - confidence! Now my body is far from perfect...two babies later I have the stretch marks & saggy skin to prove it. I'm breastfeeding so at any given time one boob is normally a bit bigger than the other, my belly button jiggles and at the end of a big meal I look like I have a food baby. But all of these things are reminders of what my body went through to produce two beautiful children, and I couldn't be more proud.
I see comments knocking women's confidence ALL the time, especially online. Whether it's on a picture of some celebrity, blogger or just a normal girl like me...some women make it their mission to point out every flaw in a ridiculous attempt to make themselves feel better about their own insecurities. I challenge you all to do the opposite of that, and post a picture of yourself in a bikini (or bathing suit, whatever you're comfortable in!) with the hashtag #ilovemybikinibody. Don't worry about flaws, imperfections or insecurities...they are all a part of you which is what makes you beautiful & different from everybody else. You can upload on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook - leave encouraging & uplifting comments on pictures of other women as well and let's spread some positivity for a change :)
