Admittedly I don't know much about childbirth. Even second hand as we adopted our daughter.
But I saw that in a tweet. The person was likening the transition period to childbirth: not pleasant and even stinks. But you know what? I've heard people forget how hard it is. And of course you have a beautiful child, hopefully for life.
Well we get weight loss, much less appetite, and health for life. So worth the transition.
I do know about being a parent though. I remember the night before our first placement. I started freaking out thinking about not being able to go out when we wanted. Staying up late and early, basically giving up a lot of what I was used to and liked. And yes you give up a lot being a parent.
But you also get so much. So much laughter, and joy and hugs. Helping your child grow. Discovering the world again. Well yes you give stuff up on low carb and grain free, just like when deciding to be a parent. It is a brave new world doing either. It is OK. It is actually much better than OK. I am not only good grain free I am great. Do I miss going out some nights and perhaps a pizza sometimes? Sure.
Would I never not be low carb and grain free or not a parent? No chance. Loving both and worth it a million times over, both of them.
