She is known for not holding back when it comes to the topic of life as a mother, and we have to say that Constance Hall’s latest post - documenting her changing attitude to her weight - has really resonated with us.


The Australian mother, who writes at Queens of Constance, took to her Facebook page to share the candid explanation of why she stopped worrying about her weight.


After spending years ‘obsessing’ about the number on the scales, especially after having her babies, Constance revealed that it was a cancer scare that finally made her realise what is important - and what is really trivial - in life.



“I found a lump on my breast. I was so scared that I wouldn’t be granted the privilege to raise these perfect little children of mine. That week, I couldn’t eat, yet my weight was the furthest thing from my mind,” she recalled.


After being told that the lump was actually a non-cancerous cyst, Constance was ‘flooded with relief’ – and emerged with an entirely new attitude to life.


“I was embarrassed for placing so much importance on my weight for so many years. Now I realise that not losing your baby weight isn’t a sign of letting go, it’s a sign that this Queen has evolved; she’s realised that life is not about a number on a scale, happiness is about gratitude and love and the privilege that is life,” she added.


We could not agree with her more.
