As you can probably see, I have gone through one hell of a transformation in my lifetime.
I want to make it clear from the start that I didn’t lose weight because of social stigma. In fact i was never really bullied for my size. I have always been confident and always had a smile on my face. But the thing is, confidence is the best mask to put on to hide the fact you don’t love yourself.
You can be beautiful at whatever size you are, however you look, whatever you hair colour is etc. No matter what you may think is the reason someone won’t find you attractive, I guarantee you that it isn’t the case. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so just because one person might not find you attractive, doesn’t mean that no-one will.
The fact is, i didn’t love myself and I wasn’t happy at the weight I used to be. So I made a change. A change for myself, not for what anybody else thought of me. And I’m not saying at all that anybody who is larger should lose weight. I have the upmost respect for anyone who can truly love themselves at whatever weight, height, hair colour etc. What I’m saying is I was not able to love myself at that weight. So I changed it.
I went on a tough journey learning about food. What food was good for me, what wasn’t, learning about moderation and excercise etc. What I thought was my greatest friend, was actually my greatest enemy. That was difficult.
But I have come out stronger, happier, healthier and I am learning to love myself.
I guess i just wanted to share a snippet of my story and try to encourage people to love themselves no matter what. And if you don’t, make a change for yourself and no-one else.
I’m planning on doing a video on this topic on my youtube channel so, if anyone is interested in watching that go to:
If anyone wants any help or advice, drop me a line on here or on twitter or youtube, wherever!!
Sorry if im not being helpful, hopefully my video will do some more.
