As great as #Gains and #FitGoals are, at the end of the day, it's important you love yourself and the progress you're making when you want to make it. New moms often have a tough time in this department as they try to juggle life with a new addition to the family and their changing body. This is why I love Pink's post-baby photo and inspirational message to mothers everywhere that's honest, empowering, and deserving of two handclaps of praise!

Now a mom of two (Pink and her husband Carey Hart are proud parents to son Jameson Moon, 3 months, and daughter Willow Sage, 5), Pink recently took to Instagram where she shared a post-workout selfie.

Like many postpartum mommies, Pink has weight goals in mind, but she isn't sweating them or the scale, as she is putting something more important first: self-love.

"Would you believe I'm 160 pounds and 5'3"?" Pink captioned her workout pic. She continued:

By 'regular standards' that makes me obese. I know I'm not at my goal or anywhere near it after Baby 2 but dammit I don't feel obese. The only thing I'm feeling is myself. Stay off that scale ladies!

Girl, yas!!

As a fellow mommy of two who struggled to love her body after giving birth to her second child --  because the "snapback" took a little more time -- I appreciate this message so much.

Don't get me wrong, scales are important, but sometimes, they don't reflect the whole picture. Like Pink, I'm also "obese" by "regular standards," though I'm in the best shape of my life. I have more muscle, can run up to 12.5 mph (you gotta train to chase after your kids), and could totally kick the old Tanvier's ass.

A scale and the number on it do not define me, and they shouldn't define you, either.

I have always loved Pink for her honesty and her ability to not give a flip. This is a real issue that real women struggle with on the daily. We need more moms, like Pink, to speak up so we can encourage one another to love ourselves.

Because, at the end of the day, that's what matters most.
