    What a beautiful sentiment! Very well written and beautifully communicated. Thank you for sharing.

    I totally agree here. Stop guilting our children for our inability to win the relentless pursuit of our past bodies. Pure absurdity. My wife of 20 years, 3 children and countless adventures is far more beautiful (in the real sense of the word, not the temporal sense) to me now than when we met all those years ago.

    Yes, be proud of your new body. It will never be your old body, but you're more beautiful because you're willing to be.

    Really love how open you were in writing this. Vulnerability is a powerful thing.
