Entrepreneur Angela Simmons may have the body of a sexy cover girl, but she knows all too well that snapping back into shape post-baby can be tough.
Simmons, who gave birth to her son, Sutton Joseph in October, bared her soul on Instagram Thursday, Aug. 17, with an honest caption about her body image.
“I stand before [you] as a woman who has had many insecurities,” Simmons wrote. “But not as many as you have after you bear a child. I have to constantly find my inner strength in me to work for what I want. And no, it’s not easy. Not easy when the world offers you the very quick way to alter how you look … in a blink of an eye.”

I stand before as a woman who has had many insecurities.. But not as many as you have after you bear a child . I have to constantly find my inner strength in me to work for what I want . And no it's not easy . Not easy when the world offers you the very quick way to alter how you look … in a blink of an eye. (Which works for some people and that's ok)…. The past year of my life I have watched my body go up and down in weight . I gained in different areas .. it's such a different battle after child bearing . Weight doesn't drop as quick . It takes true dedication and strength to lose it !!!! So instead of any quick results of any work …. I have challenged myself to stay true to myself and learn to love every piece of myself .. and to me that takes daily strength ! It takes a lot to stand behind a camera of anybody when you have doubts and insecurities !!! I thank you @krishphotos for allowing me to open up and feel free enough to be me !!! Although you maybe looking at a photo with some touch ups . It's still me . I think the beauty of photographer is that there are different styles of shooting . And a photographer allows us to be our best self in front of the camera . And make us feel great !! These photos are a small series of some fitness inspired shots !! I will roll them out within the next couple days . ❤️❗️ 📸: @krishphotos Mua: @reneemadeulook Hairstylist : @qlovebug Styling : @kingtroi Swimsuit : @bikinisbyashleygates
