I started writing this post in 2017 and to be honest my view of my stomach has not really changed that much. Recently though, I’ve been reading Instagram posts by Sadie Nardini and it reminded me of this post again. So here it is:
How are you?
I’m good thanks. You?
End of conversation.
But the internal conversation starts now.
Well, actually I hate being here today.
I know it’s good for you.
So I shouldn’t hate it. But I do.
I don’t want to be here.
I don’t want to be anywhere.
I’ll pull my top down to hide the flabby stomach.
The stomach that has carried my two beautiful daughters.
The stomach that’s has fed and nurtured my girls for 18 months altogether.
The stomach that has been through so much
But today I hate it.
For two days I’ve been filling it with crap
Junk food in the form of cookies and chocolates and crisps to name a few of things that are not good for you.
Why do I do this?
Then I come here in an attempt to absolve my sins.
