I’m with you, Makaia!

Good Health Choices - - Your Say - – Sarah

Af­ter hav­ing a baby last year I’ve been feel­ing un­der pres­sure to get back my pre-baby body, and ex­pe­ri­enc­ing al­most daily dis­ap­point­ment about how dif­fer­ent I look now. I loved read­ing Makaia Carr’s story in the Oc­to­ber is­sue of Good Health Choices, and it re­ally made me think about why I feel like this. Makaia’s com­ments about fo­cus­ing on love and ac­cep­tance and, in par­tic­u­lar, stay­ing away from so­cial me­dia that doesn’t make you feel good, re­ally res­onated with me. Thanks so much for giv­ing a bal­anced view of health that in­cludes not just phys­i­cal as­pects but also men­tal well­be­ing!
