This is beautiful.

We all know that our bodies vastly change after having children.

In recent years, there’s seem to be an unrealistic celeb craze of bouncing back to your pre-baby ways the instant you leave the hospital – however we all know that it’s not achievable if we don’t have 5 nannies, 3 personal trainers, 2 cleaner, and 10 personal chefs on hand.

For some reason though, a lot of us feel bad about ourselves for not getting right back to the way we were before we grew a human inside of us.

This personal trainer, who has amassed a huge following on social media, took to Instagram to share a very inspiring post.

Katrina Scott wrote on the social networking site that she sees herself as a stronger woman than what she used to be.

“So here it is…this is me just before I got pregnant vs 6 days after giving birth. On the left I felt like I was the strongest & most in shape I had ever been— but wow was I wrong. I had no idea what I was capable of,” she said.

“I’m so much more proud of the body on the right. I fought harder for it, sacrificed so much more, embraced every day as it came, surrendered to all the change, pushed through the hard days & challenges with a smile on my face & kept a positive perspective when things got tough, worked harder than I ever have – I showed myself how truly amazing the female body is.

“I appreciate and love my body & all that it has done more than I ever have before. I kept hearing from moms that when you get home you don’t recognize yourself or your body anymore and I want to make that okay. Let’s not be the same— let’s be different…let’s be stronger.”
