It’s been a big year for Jana Kramer. After years of trying to have another baby, she finally was blessed with a beautiful and healthy son. She had a c-section a little over a week ago and has been very open on social media with what is going on in her life regarding her son, her pregnancy, her delivery, her job, and so on. She actually even went back to work less than a week after having her son, Jace, but she works as a podcast personality and the whole family made a trip in. She posted a photo to Instagram to celebrate the moment and people started commenting about her weight. Most were saying how motivating she was to others to get into shape after a baby because she looked great... others shamed her for her body and for the fact that she was back at work so quickly.
Kramer decided to use the social media platform to vent about her frustrations instead of directly respond to those hating on her...

A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this. I wanted to post this photo (showing my stomach) because I wanted to show my journey back to healthy and my goodness I’m so glad I didn’t which is why this photo is now cropped. It’s amazing the comments and how rude some people can be from my last photo I took yesterday. A few things, no I didn’t get a tummy tuck, no I don’t have a personal chef, no I don’t have fortunes so I didn’t train everyday. Yes I had a c section, yes I am still in pain and on meds but I do have a high pain tolerance. I have had 3 stomach surgeries before this (appendix, gallbladder, and c section).. In that photo I had a belly bandit wrapped tightly, and high waisted pants and wow here I am defending myself. Why?!? If I would have posted the photo of my actual stomach in this photo I would have probably been shamed too even when I was wanting to be vulnerable with my journey. Why do we women have to compare ourselves to each other and then shame?. I say this to myself as much as I say this to y’all...why can’t it be that we are all different. Our bodies are all beautiful and crafted differently, they heal different, they react different, they simply look different. Why do we need to shame someone for not looking a certain way? Or feel bad about ourselves for looking a certain way? Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every women has a different journey but yet we are all beautiful? Can we lift women up but not tear yourself down in the process with comparing? Let’s give that a try.....I love y’all. Back to my baby.
