I’ve been considered “fat” most of my life. The correct term is overweight or obese. Right now, I’m obese. I’ve lost weight and gained it again so many times. I love food for all the reasons you can imagine but I never loved my body. Never.
All my life I’ve been the “fat one” in the family, always compared to others. I’ve heard so many comments about my weight or other people’s weight, judging everyone, then saying “Oh, we just say it because of your health”. Yep, maybe now, but not when I was growing. That was and still is hard to hear because instead of helping, those comments just diminish me and destroy my self confidence. When you think about your weight every f*cking minute of the day, you have to understand that you have a problem. No Jenny C. or Nutriwhatever is gonna work if you don’t love and understand your body. And that is hard work, hey!
I’m still learning to love my body so I can heal it. I’m at an age (40+) where things tend to go a little crazy in a woman’s body. I’ve found loving myself no matter what people say or how they look at me is extenuating at times.
Most important of all, I have 2 kids. I want to be a better example, because I’ve failed for now. And I want to be around to see grandkids, you know?
So ladies, love the skin you’re in. Learn about your healthy weight. Talk to a doctor and nutritionist. Oh, feeling more energetic and beautiful will come as “side effects” LOL!
And to those who tell you you’re fat…kindly say “thanks for your concern” or simply “go f*ck yourself” and turn around smiling.
Love,
B.
