From seafood and salad to a roast with all the trimmings, Christmas lunch is one meal of the year that it’s almost obligatory to go back for seconds (and thirds… and fourths). And that’s before the pavlova has even been decorated.
The result? A whole lot of babies – food babies, that is.
But if the warm and fuzzy haze of post-Christmas lunch has worn off, and you’re starting to feel a little guilty about how much you ate, positive body image ‘warrior’ Megan Jayne Crabbe has an important reminder for you.
Taking to Instagram, she shared two pictures of herself on Christmas Day taken just hours apart.
TO ANYONE CURRENTLY FEELING GUILTY ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF FOOD IN THEIR STOMACH: it’s okay. Tummies are supposed to grow and expand and let us experience all kinds of delicious moments. You are no less beautiful, valuable, or loveable whether you are full or empty. Treat your food baby nicely, don’t pull or grab yourself, don’t be rough. Be gentle, touch yourself kindly, appreciate the softness. And when the guilt creeps up, tell yourself that everything is okay, and that what you’ve eaten today doesn’t determine one single bit of how wonderful you are. MERRY CHRISTMAS MY LOVES! ????????????????????
