Ana Louise Bonasera is a mother of four boys, a self love activist and author of "Stretched: A mother's journey to love her 'flaws' & how you can too"
After hating her body for the majority of her life, when she became a mother at 20 years old, she found herself wishing for they physique she had spent so long mentally and physically abusing. When she fell pregnant just 9 months later with twins her obsession with dieting grew.
As a new mother to three young boys the pressure to lose weight and get her "pre baby body back" was immense. She spent the next few years unhappy no matter how much weight she lost, constantly comparing herself to others, hiding her "flaws" and feeling unworthy because of them.
Now she shares her journey online and in her book "Stretched" and how she found self love, body confidence and is on a mission to empower other women to do the same.
