I Haven’t Lost the Baby Weight

  1. Ruthie Gray says:

    Carrie, you are absolutely right, and if you let it, the mom weight will be with you the rest of your life! i’m almost an empty nester, and as a mom of four, I can tell you that I worried so much about so many things when my kids were little. Something I had to realize was that only I could love them as they were supposed to be loved – and that’s why God gave them to me. A perfectionistic mom has a double blessing of this (that’s what I was)!!!Thanks for the reminder and for sharing at Coffee and Conversation!

  2. Oh, the baby weight. I sure do carry a lot of that around, both figuratively and literally. Last week was a really bad week for me in momma guilt land, and it wasn’t until I heard a speaker talk on what kind of legacy we are leaving that I snapped out of it. I’m more of a Martha, too, so this reminder that all that I’m worried about doesn’t really matter was perfect for me today. Thank you for sharing your heart on this. I’m so glad I found you on the #SHINEBlogHop!

      Thanks for reading Kelsey! I need this reminder so often, it is so easy to get distracted and stressed by so many “important” things . . .

    So perfect for me to read this morning! I woke up, so discouraged about the world that I am raising my children in. It just seems to keep getting worse and worse, especially for Christians. But God knows. He is in control. Thanks so much for the reminder this morning.

      I’m glad it ministered to you Miranda! I can so totally relate to the discouragement . . . sometimes I just can’t think about all that is going on in the world. The Father knows my children, and His plan for them . . . but it is so hard for me to rest in that.

  5. Oh girl, that mama guilt never ends. We all want the best for our little ones and when it doesn’t happen we feel so terrible. Both figurative and literal baby weight will always way us down until we can take it off and learn to leave it behind us. Thanks for sharing on the Shine Blog Hop!
