Dawn was Scott's accountability partner and spiritual guru throughout the process. "Karena was my workout partner for my entire pregnancy, and she's back with me when I'm not working out," she says.

I've been wanting to share this & I finally have my hands free! Baby girl is all fed, she is almost asleep … and my diaper is changed … yup lol. I was pregnant and I felt like I was the last one I had ever but- but I was wrong. I had no idea what I was capable of. I'm so proud of the body on the right. I fought harder for it, sacrificed so much more, embraced every day it came, surrendered to all the change, pushed through the hard days & challenges with a smile on my face & kept a positive perspective when things got tough, worked harder than I've had my mind, body and soul, listen to my intuition and what's best for the little miracle, and most of all , I have always enjoyed my body & all that. I want to film this and share exactly where I'm with you bc I do not want anyone to ever think things are 'perfect'. I weighed myself (left 40lbs) and left with a 7 pound baby in my arms weighing 165. I do not recommend yourself, but I want you to know that this is completely normal. We do not leave all the baby weight at the hospital! We have a new journey ahead of us and it's going to take self-love, patience, & kindness. I heard that when you get home you do not recognize yourself or I want to make that okay. Let's not be the same-let's be different … let's be stronger Do I want the body on the left? No ~ I'm not the same girl. Tiger stripes, dimples and all! Please take a moment & day out and let her know how freaking, amazing, & remarkable she is in with her and ask if there's anything she needs for her own goals, because u never know if she needs it u love girls
Scott's main "resolution" for 2019 is simple: "I just want to be a good mom and be patient with myself because this is a new gig, "she says. "I'm learning to be okay with everything and I'm figuring out my new normal-even if I've got an interview while pumping-I know that I'm the only person that can judge me." No mommy shame. "
