Something that helped me was rethinking what clothes look good on my new body NOW (not hanging on to those tight low rise jeans and crop tops as “motivation” to one day fit back into them). This is hard, because we spend decades learning our own style and what flatters our figure. But investing the time and energy into figuring this out for my new body has helped a lot. Sometimes the size 8 looks better on me than the size 4 (what I would have worn pre pregnancy). Remember that no one knows what size you’re wearing, and if it helps you can cut the tag out for yourself :) but wearing clothes that fit well and make you feel confident is so key.
