Linda Mtoba on postpartum body – “I see flaws”


Actress, Linda Mtoba opens up on her postpartum body and all she sees are flaws.

In a lengthy note shared on Instagram, the star says she’s just embracing her new body, as she feels she’s lost the s*xiness.

“I look at myself in the mirror trying to recognize my body and what it used to be, it’s gone through so many changes. Most days I look at it in awe of what it’s capable of doing and between those moments I have some where I cry cause I don’t see myself & all I see is the amount of work i have to put in to get “me” back, I see stretch marks I never had, cellulite in new parts of me, how soft my body is and not as tight as it was, I see flaws.”

“On a random day as I was looking at myself in the mirror my husband came in and nonchalantly said “hey sexy” before him seeing that I was crying. He came in and reassured me, he kissed my belly and said “this body carried & gave us the most special gift we’ve ever gotten, I love it”.
Im learning to embrace me & love me, I might take alil longer getting dressed (longer than I used too, which was long 🤣)I might cry inbetween outfit changes, but it’s all growth,” she added.

Linda welcomed a baby girl in October, 2019 and it’s been a new chapter for her.

MakaBean 💋 Long read ahead… They don’t tell us how challenging dressing for your new body is. I look at myself in the mirror trying to recognize my body and what it used to be, it’s gone through so many changes. Most days I look at it in awe of what it’s capable of doing and between those moments I have some where I cry cause I don’t see myself & all I see is the amount of work i have to put in to get “me” back, I see stretch marks I never had, cellulite in new parts of me, how soft my body is and not as tight as it was, I see flaws. I don’t feel as sexy or as beautiful I used to feel. But these are fleeting thoughts that come down like a weight and I’m allowed to feel them and cry through them if that’s what i feel like doing. On a random day as I was looking at myself in the mirror my husband came in and nonchalantly said “hey sexy” before him seeing that I was crying. He came in and reassured me, he kissed my belly and said “this body carried & gave us the most special gift we’ve ever gotten, I love it”. Im learning to embrace me & love me, I might take alil longer getting dressed (longer than I used too, which was long 🤣)I might cry inbetween outfit changes, but it’s all growth. Our bodies have indeed done something that’s remarkable to bring life is no easy task, it’s bound to leave us changed. Anyway I know this is a long caption, I feel like it’s a mom thing, ngoba omama bayakhuluma bo🙃😂. But seriously I just thought I should share cause I know I’m not alone & not everyone is fortunate enough to have an immediate snapback so please be gentle with yourself 💕I’m learning to do the same.
