It Was Worth "Ruining" my Body
I love and adore my children. However, as any woman who has ever experienced child-birth can tell you, your body is never the same afterwards. Still, when I'm with my children it would never occur to me to think that having a better body was more worthwhile then having them.
So when I read something like this it makes me kind of sad: http://www.diet-blog.com/archives/2010/04/26/jillian_michaels_wont_ruin_her_body_with_pregnancy.php?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+diet-blog+%28Diet+Blog%29
I'm all for eating healthy, exercising and having the best body we possibly can, but to be so vain as to deny yourself one of life's greatest joys just to preserve your body is taking it a step too far.
Now, I understand that some people just don't want to have children, and I respect that. Having children is a tremendous responsibility, and not one to take lightly if you feel you're not up to it. Hell, I won't get a dog because I don't want the responsibility.
But, to say you don't want children only to preserve your body, is another matter. I hope Ms. Michaels eventually rethinks her priorities.
