Realising recently that I have to travel my own 'diet path' and let others travel theirs. But I am beyond hating myself and starving myself. Hearing the way some people talk about themselves, the negativity and fat shaming and calorie restriction (not talking 5:2 here, but constant 1000cal days) makes me so sad.
I don't want to be obese anymore, but I want to be healthy and strong and to like myself and feel proud of myself. I will not pass on the self-loathing that I had as a child to my own children. You only get one body, one life, it's too short to constantly hate and curse yourself. A lady from my Slimming World class, who was only 47, died in her sleep a couple of days ago, possibly a heart attack. So unbelievably sad. Death can come at any time, being alive is unbelievably special and we should make the most of it and love ourselves.
