Show Up In It
"I don’t remember a time when I felt happy with my body.
For a long time I checked every room I entered to see if I was the fattest person there. If I was I couldn’t concentrate and would do anything to leave. I missed friends’ celebrations and skipped job interviews. I’ve put so much off, thinking, ‘I’ll do that when I lose weight.’
Taking part in this is part of reclaiming my body and knowing that I can’t miss out any more. This is my body and I’m going to show up in it."
