"At the end of the day, I work out for me. I want to be strong, healthy, and happy because if I do it, then I'm the best version of myself, and in turn, the best mom I can be! So while some people might see my tiger stripes as ugly or gross, to me they prove that I am powerful, and that my body assisted God in a miracle and the ultimate act of strength and sacrifice."

"I was scared my body would not recover after pregnancy, but through exercise, it went back to its former state. I just kept my diet healthy like I used to before pregnancy and during!"

"This photo has straight confidence all over it! I wasn't here a year ago, but I slowly started to realize that every curve, every stretch mark, and every dimple tells a story from my life. It makes me smile to think about the good and the bad, and then to see where I am now. This body is mine and I love every inch of it. I hope I can pass this confidence on to my daughter."

"This picture is close to my heart mostly because I was so set on having a natural water birth. After finding out my son was breech, I had an emergency C-section. I was bummed, but all I cared about was that my baby was safe. After holding my newborn, nothing else mattered, and to this day I cherish my scar and show it off as much as possible! This is a scar of love, and it's my reminder of my firstborn. All scars are beautiful, and I encourage all moms to show off their postpartum bodies with pride!"

"This picture represents a hardworking, determined new mom. I wanted a body that looked better to me than any body I've ever had before, and in three months of consistency and dedication I achieved just that."

"After my pregnancy (and now still) I battled with postpartum depression and was unhappy with how my body changed inside and out. I always said that those stretch marks never bothered me, but they did, and still do. But this photo is important to me; it's the turning point. My body gave me the best thing in my life — my son!"
