Question: Since I had my daughter three years ago, I am not comfortable with the way my body looks. I have not lost all the pregnancy weight. I eat now more than I used to, although I have stopped breastfeeding two years ago, and I am wondering if I am being realistic to want my pre-pregnancy body back. Is that possible?

Well, my beloved, some women have, of course, managed to do this. Some have had to go through a rigorous regimen of diet and exercise in order to do so. I do not want to give the impression that it is not possible at all. But for the majority of women, it just is not realistic, because their body changes as a result of the pregnancy. And therefore, even though you make an effort with diet and exercise, you will never really get back to that level that you had before you became pregnant. This has unfortunately caused many people to decide that they are going to make the effort to try to get back, and then when they fail, they go into this endless spiral of blaming themselves, feeling inadequate, coming down upon themselves, because they were not strong enough, they were not disciplined enough, and all of these things.
It is an individual matter to try and gain some attunement, to see whether you should make the effort to get back to that same weight that you had before, or whether you should simply give it up. You need to recognize here that most women have to give up many things in order to become mothers. Maybe for you, one of the things you need to give up is the desire to return your waistline to pre-pregnancy levels. You may simply have to accept your body as it is now, and then move on with life, and adopt a positive attitude towards your body as it is now.
