Mom Poses With 2 Kids. Looks Closely At Photo And Runs For Her Camera Again

Kirsten Bosly, of Perth, Australia, has become an overnight sensation thanks to her powerful words about body image.

During a recent beach outing with her family, Kirsten felt uncomfortable, embarrassed and ashamed while in her bathing suit. As a plus-sized woman, Kirsten felt as though wearing a bathing suit was an extremely stressful event.

But, standing there on the beach with her children and husband, Kirsten had a life-changing epiphany….

Kirsten shared her important realization on her hilarious Facebook page, 1MotherBlogger:

“Today marks a new beginning for me.

For most of my life I have hated my body. Despised it. Loathed it. Resented it.

Wanted so very much for it to change; for it to be smaller, thinner… less ‘fat.’

I’ve used it and abused it.

I’ve blamed it for a lot of things.

I’ve been terribly ashamed of its wobbles and dimples; like somehow they are the measure of who I am.

I recently read a meme that said something along the lines of ‘be in pictures with your kids because when you’re gone, the pictures will be all they have left’ and it struck a nerve. I’ve avoided pictures most of the time as I disliked how I looked in them.”
