Your diaper bag is a very visual reminder of your needs. You tote it around as a reminder that you must eat. Yes, even you who are higher weight or BMI, or of normal weight but simply dissatisfied with your body; you, too, need to be burdened by the bag.
Your diaper bag validates that you need to nourish yourself. Would a mother of toddlers dare to leave the house without this tote? Would she leave behind the infant formula or the animal crackers to appease her child's hunger, to honor it, to respect it? Of course not. So why not consider your needs and provide for your own nourishment?
Carrying your diaper bag is a way of saying you're important and that self care is a high priority, that your needs are as important as those of your children's or the parents you may care for, or your best friend.
Design your own bag or use a simple sack of your choice. But make it all about your needs with the tools to meet them. I know, I know, it's not going to be easy. You've never thought of yourself as number one on the priority list. But it's time for change, isn't it? And if you can't seem to get past doing it for yourself, consider starting by doing it for the sake of those loved ones you care about--your kids, your partner, your parents, your friends.
