When I first heard this term I couldn't believe it! "Dad bod?"
When will people start taking responsibility for neglecting their own bodies instead of coming up with a term that is "supposed to be widely accepted" or seen as the new trend in modern times?
The "Dad bod" cannot be compared to the "Mom bod". It's well known that women go through tremendeous physical changes during pregnancy.
After a woman delivers her baby she is very fortunate if she maintains the same physique as before. Some women get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies with little or no changes. But there many others who are left with tons of stretchmarks, deflated boobs, and loose/wrinkled skin.
Getting back to this woman's original weight is not the problem. The signs of pregnancy has marked its territory forever.
The people with the Dad bod are pretty much men who let the pounds pack on over the years.
Moms who dropped the weight and are left with permanent changes, had no choice in the body they have but the men do!
No matter how you acquired that bod of yours acknowledge the truth in how you got it.
If you are contented with your appearance, then continue loving every inch of your flesh!
Whose to say it isn't worthy or beautiful ?
Let the hate begin.
The truth has spoken.
