Little Big Victories
I will point out what is wrong with my posture here and why... first I would hunch over like you can see above. My body did this to try to escape pain and I would hunch over and it would shorten my abdomen muscles... It took a lot of time and a lot of therapy to re-stretch those muscles and then strengthen them to support my body again... then I would push my hips outward and lock my knees (kinda hard to see with a dress) but it was another thing due to pain and my pelvic floor tension myalgia. I still have to constantly be thinking of not locking my knees and standing up straight. your pelvic muscles are connected to your abdomen muscles, hip muscles, and even legs ..it's a lot of muscle that are affected at this stage and this photo was 1 year after I started physical therapy so you can imagine how I was before... crazy!
