Stassi Schroeder has opened up on her body issues following the birth of her daughter Hartford.
‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Spoilers: Stassi Schroeder Opens Up On Her Body Issues
During a post on her Instagram, she revealed how her clothes have not been the same since. She said: “1st postpartum OOTD- I don’t know who needs to hear this, but it’s been seven weeks since I gave birth and my maternity jeans are still the only ones that fit me. I’m also wearing spanx to hold in what looks like a 4-month pregnant belly.”
And she was open on how it was harder for her to bounce back to her old self. She continued: “I thought it would be way easier to bounce back, and every day I wake up like a kid on Christmas morning hoping that when I look in the mirror, I’m going to see my pre-pregnant body once again, and that obvs never happens. But also, how f–ked up is it that I’m so obsessed with bouncing back when my body has just made, housed and delivered a baby?”
This obsession had gotten to a point where Stassi was starting to become overwhelmed. So much so that it was bordering on dangerous. She added: “[I] consume my thoughts about 97% of the day, and it is a major hole I struggle to dig myself out of. We’re told we have to eat enough calories to breastfeed but don’t overdo it because then we won’t get our bodies back. All the while, I’m trying to stay mentally and emotionally healthy for my baby, my husband and myself.
“I’ve read some kind dm’s from people telling me to give myself grace, but I’m not gonna lie, I truly don’t know how to give myself grace, and that’s a depressing fact. I also feel like an a–hole for complaining about my body when I was given the most perfect baby. Totally wish I wasn’t so vain, but unfortunately, I am. All I can say is thank the lord shirt jackets are in. Hope this helped at least one other postpartum mama feel a little less alone today. On a positive note, my Chanel slingbacks fit.”
Stassi was brave for being so honest on her body issues which should be commended. If you enjoyed reading this article, then make sure you check out our other features on the Daily Soap Dish.
