Today I’m going to try to see the beauty in one of my most loathed body parts. Here was our conversation this morning:
Me: You know, you really are pretty great.
Abs: Really? I thought I disgusted you?
Me: I know. I really have not treated you with the respect you deserve. You housed the most precious thing for 40 weeks. That’s an accomplishment.
Abs: It wasn’t easy.
Me: And you really have come a long way. Way to go! You were huge last summer!
Me: I will try my hardest not to compare you to what you were or think about what you never will be, and just appreciate you for what you are.
Abs: Good luck!
