Many people often find it hard to believe that my being over weight has never bothered me.
Yes it would be nice to not sweat when i’m walking, and to walk into a clothes store without thinking “I wonder if they go up to my size.”
But looks wise I’ve always been fairly content. I wear what I want and what I feel comfortable in.
I am lucky enough to have a boyfriend who loves me regardless of being a chunky monkey and a family who support me.
I am losing weight now so I can be a healthier version of me.
I have been very lucky with my health to date, but I don’t want to count my chickens too soon, it shan’t be long before dodgy knees, diabetes and high blood pressure catch up with me.
I also want to live a long and adventurous life, filled with children and love. I want to be able to run up and down the park playing chase for hours on end, play football, go horse riding, go swimming and everything else I avoid doing now!
Why are you losing weight?
Or why did you lose weight?
