Amid having a body far from her flawless figure when she was still competing in the beauty pageant scene, Lara Quigaman definitely has no regrets as she got the changes in her body from the best crowning moment in her life— being a mother.
In her Instagram post, Lara proudly flaunted the loose skin on her belly which she got after giving birth to her two kids and wrote an inspiring message for moms who are also undergoing changes from motherhood.
She wrote: “When I had children, it wasn’t just my body that changed, my whole life did. Most of the time I am exhausted, I am tired, sometimes I cry (parang ngayon, parang tanga, umiiyak habang nagtatype ?) there are times when I feel like I can’t do it anymore… I look in the mirror and I see messy hair, walang ligo, my tummy covered in stretchmarks so deep you can play ‘sungka’, skin so loose, you can probably make a bag out of it, my breasts- well you my fellow moms know what these two looks like now- and then I look at my sons and they look back, one smiles back and the older one tells me ‘your tummy is so squishy mom, i love it…? and even though I feel insecure about my body, I am not going to complain.
“Kung ang kapalit naman ng lahat ng sakripisyong ito eh ang mga ngiti ng mga anak ko, okay na okay na ako. I will be grateful to God everyday for the gifts He has entrusted to me.
