Шарни Кизер живет в Австралии. Она ведет свой фитнес-блог. Кроме того, она мама 6 детей. У них с мужем 5 мальчиков и 1 девочка.
После стольких родов ее тело изменилось до неузнаваемости. Ужасные растяжки расползлись по ее телу после 6 беременностей.
Шарни Кизер не видела смысла в занятиях спортом, так как по ее мнению, с ее ужасными растяжками она бы все равно никогда не смогла бы одеть бикини. Когда друзья приходили в дом, Шарни всегда одевала футболку, чтобы никто не видел ее живота.
In Australia, we used to rush the kids into the car, put the iPads on and try to park as close to our destination as we could. Now, this is how we get around. It takes a long time, but that time is filled with chatter and laughter (and some whingeing, fighting, crying as well as a lot of "I'm hungry"). Without the distraction and rush of car travel (with devices), our kids are learning more and talking more about what they see and feel. So much better than talking about what they saw on TV or YouTube. A million times better than not talking, and only watching the device. #travellingfamily #memories #nomads #walking #exploring #incidentalexercise #kohtao #paradise #thailand #thekiesers #fitdad #fitness #fitkids #healthylifestyle
Но однажды она нечаянно услышала слова мужа, которые адресовывались их друзьям. И с этого момента жизнь Шарни полностью изменилась, как и ее взгляды на свое тело. Муж сказал, что растяжки на животе Шарни являются символом ее материнской любви и они прекрасны.
В этот момент женщина поняла, что ненавидит в себе именно то, что ее муж любит больше всего!
I used to not see the point in exercise because my body was covered in stretch marks. 'what's the point in having a great body if I will never wear a bikini' I'd think. If I was ever invited to the beach or a pool party, I'd always decline. On the odd occasion I couldn't avoid it, I'd stay inside, helping with the food or the cleaning. I would only wear board shorts and t-shirts. I wished so hard that I could one day wear a bikini. Then one day I overheard my loving husband explaining to a bunch of his friends why he thought stretch marks were beautiful. They were a sign of being a woman. They are a result of the great love a mother has, that she would scar her own body to bring a child to life… on and on he explained and the more he talked, the more I got it. I had hated myself for the very reasons he loved me. My body wasn't ruined or disgusting, it had transformed from a selfish girls body into a selfless mothers body and the scars were a symbol of that transition. A daily reminder that I was a mother. I looked at my stretch marks and I felt pride. I felt love. The love of my husband and the love of my children. Each one of them had been nurtured and lived behind those scars for 9 months. I felt pride. I felt love. I felt love for myself. The craziest thing was that when I started to love myself for what I had now, the body I had now, I began to treat myself better. I WANTED to eat healthy. I WANTED to exercise, I WANTED to do the things I loved. Just by changing the way I looked at myself with love and pride instead of hate, I had found the effortless motivation to care for my body. Because of this tiny little shift in mindset, magic happened… I got the body I had always dreamed of. The bikini body that I thought was not ever going to be possible for me after being covered in stretch marks, It has became a reality for me. It started though, with me loving myself first. Being grateful for what I had, not wishing for something better. ?[see comments for more]?
Stretch marks, I used to hate them. Seal showed us that scars are beautiful. They tell a story. They are unique. My scar story is that I carried 6 babies in my body. That's 4 and a half years of my life I spent pregnant. How can I possibly hate myself for that? What's your scar story?

После этих слов и понимания того, что каждая растяжка на ее теле, это символ того, что 6 детей смогли здоровыми вырасти внутри нее, Шарни успокоилась и полюбила себя. С тех пор она занимается тем, что любит больше всего в своей жизни.
If you could just stop, for once, and forget about what other people think… about what is expected of you, about being mature… you'll realise that the ones that matter (your kids) just want you to have fun with them. Whatever the fuck that looks like. http://sharnyandjulius.com/fitmum #fitmum #travel #nomads #life #fun #adventure #beachfront #bomb #pool #family #life #funmum #memories #mumofsix #kohsamui @shiva_samui #familyadventuresummit

Love that so many mums and dads are feeling amazing again in only 8 short weeks ??? #fitmum #family #healthylifestyle #8monthspostpartum #6kids #wife #mum #mom #bikini this is a @bakuswimwear bikini ? #bakuswimwear
Теперь Шарни не только не стесняется своего тела, но и с гордостью демонстрирует их.
То, что сказал муж Шарни, должно быть правилом для всех мужчин и людей на земле. Женщина прекрасно в материнстве!
