I was never a heavy child, I was quite the opposite, underweight most of my life and spent my time doing competitive dance and swim. As I got older my dedication to the sports diminished and I became more concerned with hanging out with my friends and other teenagery things.
I was insecure, none of my clothes fit, I was bigger than all of my friends and people began making fat jokes when they thought I was out of hearing range. Enough was enough. One day after I finished my last exam and was getting ready to start my new summer job, I decided that school was over, exams were done; it was time for a change. What’s better to work on than my happiness?
Through my weightless journey I developed a better relationship with food and exercise, but in that I also developed a better relationship with myself. In those two years I learned how to love myself again. Not because I was thin, but because I was taking care of myself, nourishing my body and claiming back as my own.
Weight loss is hard, and it doesn’t happen overnight, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Take it day by day and don’t beat yourself up for the little binges or bad days. Progress is progress- just keep moving forward.
