I'm Over Waiting Till I'm an Ideal Weight
"I’ve been on diets since I was 12, last year after delving into the positive community I quit.
It took a while but a year on and my mental health is so much better, I move when I want to and because I enjoy it, I eat what I want and don’t feel guilty.
The only thing I still struggle with is looking at myself, sometimes I feel hot and love it, other times I feel I can’t look. When this hits I think of how soft my tummy is and that’s a good thing, I think how my body has carried me this far even when I hated it. I try to think of it as a friend and love and look after it.
After all, this is the only one I have so why shouldn’t I live in it. I’m over waiting till I’m an ideal weight to live, love and explore. It’s taking time but me and my body are getting there."
